But thaks to social media platforms and their tolerance for intolerant leftist hate mobs, a childish serial prevaricator like AOC has been an outsized importance that would not have been something that a woman who was tending bar just over a year ago could expect along with a sustained presence in a media that gobbles up every keystroke that she jabs into her iPhone on a daily basis.
Rep. @LaurenUnderwood: «With 5 kids that have died, 5,000 separated from their families, I feel like the evidence is really clear that this is intentional. It’s intentional, and it’s a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration.» https://t.co/C5Doo7vn96 pic.twitter.com/WeNzCGOFVY

It was more of the same ignorant, incendiary nonsense that the rising socialist bloc and hatemongering firebrands like AOC, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib traffic in but even for a Congress packed with fibbers, cheats, demagogues, charlatans, and hyenas should have been seen as beyond the pale and unbecoming of a member of the legislative body.
Instead, it earned Underwood the prized status of victimhood and AOC was once again at the forefront blathering her dimwitted Marxist rhetoric on Twitter.
Completely disregarding the insulting lunacy of Underwood’s accusation, the hyperpartisan taco bar revolutionary attacked Republicans who correctly demanded that Underwood’s remarks be stricken from the record.
AOC also continued to promote the “Big Lie” that the children who are forced to suffer due to the irresponsibility of their parents who dragged them thousands of miles are instead somehow the equivalent of the Jewish children who were murdered at Auschwitz.
Yesterday, GOP moved to silence Lauren Underwood’s words bc she had the audacity to say the obvious: that stealing children away from their parents, trafficking, & caging them w/o end is intended to do harm.
They tried to silence her; make her back down.
Be proud 👏🏽 https://t.co/3KRRCxGPap

Via The Hill, “Ocasio-Cortez defends Dem lawmaker who said child migrant deaths were ‘intentional’”:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) defended a fellow freshman Democrat who claimed that migrant deaths at the U.S.-Mexico border are an “intentional” part of the Trump administration’s immigration policy.

Billionaire Mark Cuban went after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying she seeks attention with bad economic opinions.
“I don’t always agree with her,” the Dallas Mavericks owner said about the New York Democrat’s comments criticizing billionaires. Her comments were “headline porn,” he told Yahoo News in an interview Friday.
“I do think that a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez said in January. She followed her statement saying that did not mean every billionaire was necessarily immoral.
Cuban had previously raised hackles on the left when he predicted that every member of the gargantuan Democrat 2020 field would be made short work of by the Trump buzzsaw could be onto something because the key to running a competitive race against Trump – who would still likely cruise to re-election anyway – is to approach Ocasio-Cortez in the same manner that Bill Clinton did when he denounced rapper Sister Souljah’s hateful views toward white people nearly three decades ago.
Clinton’s repudiation of Sister Souljah – as did Obama’s distancing himself from Reverend Jeremiah Wright – showed swing voters that he was willing to take on the extremists if that’s what he needed to appeal to the moderates.AOC is today’s Sister Souljah and whichever Democrat is able to stand up to her will have the inside track to the nomination – perhaps it will even be Cuban.
