Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Makes Another Embarrassing Mistake
Public speaking mistakes are certainly a part of the environment for anyone who speaks before a live audience. When President Trump or anyone on his cabinet mince words, the mainstream media is quick to circle the waters like sharks smelling chum.
Due to this, the liberal/socialist movement should be cautionary in terms of choosing words wisely.
While appearing at a rally for Socialist Brent Welder, the man running for Kansas’s 3rd Congressional District seat in a staunchly Republican territory, Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Bernie Sanders Twitter account and encouraged his followers to turn to “flip this seat red in November.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s mistaken words come on the heels of several odd interviews whereas Ocasio-Cortez seems to not have a basic understanding of politics. Although we don’t agree with socialism, something which Ocasio-Cortez is now pushing to the center of a struggling Democratic party infrastructure, it is difficult to deny her accolades for her recent primary win in New York. The Democrats seem reserved, yet open, to Ocasio-Cortez attempting to carry her momentum nationally, even in places such as Kansas.
“They said what we did in the Bronx no one would care about here in Kansas,” Ocasio-Cortez said Friday in Wichita at a rally for House candidate James Thompson. “They told me I would not be welcome. But you have proven them wrong.”
She’s being called a very young star, although, when her recent interview gaffes are taken into consideration, she’s also a very big risk for a party struggling to keeps its head above water in the post-Trump climate.
Here she is attacking Israel, classifying them as “occupiers” of Palestine. She admits she has no idea what she’s talking about.
