The following article, FLASHBACK: Classless Ocasio-Cortez Labels 4-Star Marine General A Coward, Reveals True Colors, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Someone needs to butter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, because she’s on a roll.
It’s more like an avalanche, though.
The Congresswoman-elect (D-NY) can’t seem to stop sticking her foot in her mouth, this time accusing a four-star Marine general of “cowardice.”
This is the type of person New Yorkers want representing them?
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway called out congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday for her assertion that Gen. John Kelly is a “coward.”
Ocasio-Cortez, the newly-elected Democratic representative from New York, tweeted Monday that White House chief of staff John Kelly should apologize to Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, and that failing to do so is “cowardice.” Kelly was accused of racism last October after he called Rep. Wilson an “empty barrel” for sharing the contents of President Donald Trump’s call with a Gold Star family.
John Kelly was straight up exposed for lying about @RepWilson in comments aimed at discrediting her.
He absolutely owes her an apology, and his refusal to do so isn’t a sign of strength – it’s cowardice. https://t.co/BA40Hgofvk

Counselor to the president Kelleyanne Conway noted, “This country owes [Kelly] a debt of gratitude. Not the nonsense that’s been spewed about him even recently from the left, and from this 29-year-old congresswoman who doesn’t seem to know much about anything when you ask her basic concepts about the economy, the Middle East, military, funding.”
Very few events in history should be compared to the Holocaust, right?
From Daily Caller:
New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday compared members of the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.
Heck, these law-breaking migrants were caught on camera throwing rocks at cops.

Ocasio-Cortez claims “Republican commentators” are “stalking” her and “doctoring” her live streams.
Cognitive dissonance is Republican commentators stalking, doctoring, + editing my casual livestreams out of context in order to sow doubt in my intelligence, all while blindly supporting a man who thinks our greatest defense against forest fires is: A Rakehttps://t.co/RsfyPT6rGy

Yes, Alexandria is delusional.
The only reason she’s being talked about so much is because she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
Check out this hilarious montage of Ocasio-Cortez proving she doesn’t know much:
Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.
Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.
See her tweet:
How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) November 18, 2018
Christopher Columbus discovered America; Erica Election did not.

I'm sure you're going to be a joy to work with in Congress.

If only this were part of her campaign ad….. she wouldn’t have been voted in as an elected official

Why do you need Election Day to be a holiday?
— EC (@EdnaV4) November 18, 2018
10 days on the job and you are already looking to manufacture more days off.

I've voted AND worked every voting day since I was 18! Job never stopped me from voting!

How come socialism has never worked yet you still want to try it ? These are the questions we should be asking.

How do twits get elected to Congress?

By the looks of the picture below, she’s not making friends right off the bat.

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.
People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress

What’s the problem?
Republican consultant Arthur Schwartz has the answer:

Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.
“I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”
She lied then, too.
From Daily Wire:
As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”
That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”
Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.
…In other Ocasio-Cortez-related news…
She knows exactly how to combat “climate change.”
It involves World War II.
Specifically, it involves the blueprint used by the allied forces to defeat the Nazis.
Maybe AOC should check out this report, in which a NASA scientist warns of strange solar activity and record cold.
In an odd twist, Ocasio-Cortez will not endorse a Sanders 2020 White House bid.
From Fox News:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist congressional candidate who has spent weeks campaigning with fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, on Thursday refused to endorse his prospective candidacy in the 2020 presidential race.
Our future is a shared responsibility.
This woman putting it all on the line for healthcare, women & LGBT+ rights is @lsarsour.
The far right constantly maligns her w/ false attacks + threats of violence.
Yet here she is, as always, fighting for everything our flag represents. https://t.co/QR4rYnclLt

Here’s an interview with Ocasio-Cortez where she claims capitalism won’t always exist:
