Sen. Lindsey Graham escalated his war-of-words with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Thursday; saying the Democratic-Socialist would like to spend America’s “last 12 years as Venezuelan socialists.”
“Even worse news, [Ocasio-Cortez] and her new socialist colleagues seem hell-bent on making sure that our last 12 years will be spent as Venezuelan socialists, not Americans,” tweeted Graham.
Question: Is it possible Rep. Ocasio-Cortez could be wrong about the demise of the planet in 12 years and the American people reject her socialist agenda in 2020?

The Senator was referencing Ocasio-Cortez’ comments this week that claimed the world would likely end in 12 years if the US doesn’t address climate change.
APOCALYPSE NOW? Ocasio-Cortez Warns ‘World is Gonna End’ in 12 YEARS
Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued a dire prediction Monday; bizarrely claiming the “world is gonna end” in approximately 12 years should the US fail to address the impacts of climate change.
The left-wing superstar was speaking at an event commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr. when she warned those in attendance of the dangers posed by rising temperatures and extreme weather.
“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?'” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Cortez has touted her “Green New Deal” in recent weeks; arguing for the complete transfer of the American energy sector and economy away from fossil fuels and towards 100% renewable energy sources.
