NOT A JOKE: AOC Blames GOP for DC Rainstorm, Says Republicans Putting Her ‘In Danger’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.08.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in Monday on a spring thunderstorm that flooded several streets around Washington, DC; saying “unprecedented flooding” is the “new normal” and Republicans are “tripling-down on fossil fuels.”

“Unprecedented flooding is quickly becoming a new normal. Despite that, Republicans are tripling down on fossil fuels w/no plan to transition off them, or make the critical infra investments we need to prep for the climate crisis. Each day of inaction puts more of us in danger,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter.

Ocasio-Cortez made similar comments earlier this year during a DC thunderstorm.

“They just issued a tornado watch in DC. Oh no, there’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out! This is crazy,” said the Congresswoman.

“Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.”

“The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue was quick to point out the legislator’s error.

“The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate,” wrote Maue. “Let’s try an easy analogy: Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”

NOT A DRILL: AOC Discovers Her Own ‘Terrifying’ Garbage Disposal, Says ‘I Don’t Know What It’s For’

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to raise eyebrows across the country this week; 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.”

NOT A DRILL: AOC Publishes the ‘5 Principles’ of Her ‘Green New Deal’ That NO ONE Voted For

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.28.19

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Green New Deal’ this Memorial Day weekend; publishing the legislation’s “five principles” months after the bill failed to secure a single vote.

“5 Principles in the Green New Deal: 1. Go Big 2. Be Specific 3. Set Deadlines 4. Let Them Sue (aka, “Don’t Flinch”) 5. Make Floors, Not Ceilings,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called AOC’s ‘New Deal’ to a full Senate vote months ago; where it failed to secure a single “Yes” vote despite receiving widespread support from a handful of Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Three Senators -Joe Manchin, Kyrsten Sinema, and Independent Angus King- joined Republicans in voting against the measure as all other Democrats voted “present.”

“Because I encouraged them to vote present, along w/ others. McConnell tried to rush the #GreenNewDeal straight to the floor without a hearing. The real question we should be asking: Why does the Senate GOP refuse to hold any major hearings on climate change?” tweeted Ocasio-Cortez after the lop-sided vote.

“This should not be a partisan issue,” said the Democratic-Socialist lawmaker. “This is about our constituents and all of their lives.”

Despite the vote disaster, Ocasio-Cortez routinely calls the legislation a “success.”

“The #GreenNewDeal, as much as GOP hiss, scream, storytell & cry about it, has forced even the most entrenched Tea Partiers into publicly abandoning their climate denial stance. The reason they’re so focused on discrediting the GND is because it’s a winning policy,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.
