Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ripped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her proposed work boycott Thursday; calling her comments “totally mind-blowing.”
“This is the same Congresswoman who just last week was celebrating the devastation of the oil and gas industry and the hundreds of thousands of jobs tied to that.
