Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows throughout the Big Apple this week; bizarrely suggesting all NYC public housing units should resemble her new “luxury” apartment in Washington, DC.
“I move into this building, and it’s marketed as a ‘luxury’ building in D.C.,” she said. “It’s an efficient building, it’s clean, it has public space, it has a rooftop garden—y’all watching my Instagram—it has clean air, it has clean water. And I think about this and I’m like, ‘Hm, this is what a luxury building is like,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“I just toured an affordable housing unit yesterday in Queens. This was one of the first developments of its kind… It’s a phenomenal building,” she added.
“I go in and I do a tour with one of these seniors. She opens the door, and I open it, and it looks just like my luxury apartment. What that shows me is that what we have been taught, is a luxury, should not be a luxury,” concluded AOC.
Last month, the left-wing lawmaker made national headlines after posting a bizarre video where she discovers her apartment’s “terrifying” garbage disposal.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal, I’ve never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying, I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

The Congresswoman’s comments come days after she was amazed by her own community garden; saying that “food comes from the dirt” like “magic.”
