SHE’S BACK: AOC Returns to Twitter with Anti-Electoral College Tirade, Video of a Penguin

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.26.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez returned to social media after a brief hiatus over the weekend; posting an anti-Electoral College tirade and a video of herself interacting with a penguin.

“I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college. So let’s talk about it. 1) If the GOP were the ‘silent majority’ they claim, they wouldn’t be so scared of a popular vote. They *know* they aren’t the majority. They rely on establishing minority rule for power. This common claim about ‘if we don’t have the Electoral College then a handful of states will determine the presidency’ is BS. a. It’s the *EC itself* that breaks down power by state, pop vote decentralizes it b. The EC makes it so a handful of states DO determine elections. LASTLY, this concept that the Electoral College is provides ‘fairness’ to rural Americans over coastal states doesn’t hold any water whatsoever. First of all, virtually every state has rural communities. NY. California. Much of our states are rural,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter.

Midwest lawmakers slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez last week after she called the Electoral College a racist “scam,” saying their voices would be completely drowned-out by coastal voters without the centuries’ old institution.

“Eliminating the current system in favor of electing the president via the national popular vote would shift power to more heavily populated states, such as Ocasio-Cortez’s home of New York. Midwestern states like Michigan and Wisconsin, now heavily sought-after swing states, and smaller ones like Iowa would have less of an impact should this happen,” reports Fox News.

“Actually @AOC, eliminating the Electoral College would silence our voices here in Iowa and in many other states across the country. This is just more evidence of how out of touch the Democrats have become,” posted Sen. Joni Ernst on social media.

“The great sage, AOC, apparently didn’t take Civics so she wants to get rid of the Electoral College. The college we need to close is the one who gave her a degree! She won’t watch this, but hope you will. Electoral College is good for Dems and GOP,” added former Gov. Mike Huckabee.

AOC IMPLODES: Ocasio-Cortez Posts Climate Change Rant While Assembling Furniture, Says ’12 Years Left’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.04.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confused countless Americans this week; posting a bizarre rant on social media while assembling furniture that warned the US has just “12 years left” before “the world ends.”

“How many years until the world ends again? We have 12 years left to cut emissions by at least 50% if not more. For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but your grandkids will not,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

“You look back and you open history books on the Civil Rights Movement, and you see those folks who are protesting… People who are trying to mock and delay this moment… I just feel bad for you,” she added.

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.”
