Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to raise eyebrows across the United States this week; baselessly suggesting that there was no “upper middle class” in America in 2018.
Cortez was speaking during a recent interview with ‘Pod Save America’ when she made her startling claim, saying ”This upper middle class doesn’t exist anymore in America.”
“For me, I think what’s happening is a lot of these folks were in their political heyday in Third Way, 90s politics, and they were campaigning and were really kind of connected most to an electorate when they were fighting for these seats […] when we had more of an American middle class,” she said. “I think that politically, this upper middle class is probably more moderate, but that upper middle class doesn’t exist anymore in America, and thanks to the continued deregulation of Wall Street, thanks to the continued gutting of working- and middle-class people, we need stronger champions.”
CORTEZ CONFUSION: Socialist Star Says Trump Tried to ‘BAN ALL MUSLIMS’ From US
Liberal superstar and New York Democratic Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on the Trump administration this week, falsely claiming the White House was trying to “ban Muslims” from entering the United States.
Cortez slammed the President on social media Monday, saying his administration’s attempt to “ban Muslims” was based on their worldview “where the expansion of one’s rights must come at the cost of another’s.”
I highly doubt that Sessions and this administration, who fought to ban Muslims from this country, value “religious liberty” at all.
They believe in and prop up a false, zero-sum world where the expansion of one’s rights must come at the cost of another’s.

Cortez found herself in hot water in recent days after the left-wing candidate referred to Israeli settlers as the “occupiers of Palestine” and claimed closing tax “loopholes” would finance a universal healthcare system in the United States.
CLASS WARFARE: Ocasio-Cortez Says American Society Divided by ‘TOP VS DOWN’
Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez urged her fellow Democrats to “reframe” their message to American voters this week, saying candidates should no longer view issues as “left and right” but rather “top and down.”
Cortez made the surprising statement during a recent radio interview Monday, blasting West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin for “dropping $2 million” against a progressive challenger who still received 30% of the vote.
“That, to me, tells me that we need to start reframing our issues instead of left and right to top and down and it’s not about, like, oh, you know, ‘I have to whether my message to Republicans.’ There are people that really want to feel like there’s an unapologetic working class champion for them,” said Cortez.
