Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking heat for her latest stupid comment. In a tweet on Monday the newly elected socialist Congresswoman from New York accused White House Chief of Staff John Kelly of cowardice over a comment he made about another Democrat congresswoman who divulged a private conversation between President Trump and a gold star family. But top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway wasn’t having it. In an interview on Fox News, Conway reminded the country that Kelly is a decorated Marine veteran who lost his own son in battle—hardly a coward. Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez is just a clueless young putz, to paraphrase Conway.
—QUOTABLE: “This country owes him 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 — really embarrassing.” -Conway
MEANWHILE—Ocasio-Cortez also stands by her claim that she has Jewish ancestry. She claimed that because there were Sephardi Jews who immigrated to Puerto Rico, that means she can lay claim to an entirely new ancestry. “Culture isn’t DNA,” she tweeted, saying to be Puerto Rican is to be a combination of many ancestries and backgrounds (sounds like, boy I dunno, a melting pot?). So this isn’t “cultural appropriation” because…why?
