Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasts critics who claim she didn’t understand Amazon deal

Ocasio-Cortez - who said she'd probably be teaching high school if President Donald Trump wasn't elected - proved she's not taking her critics too seriously as she called the memes she tagged in on social media "so weak".

'Facts are facts: while the Job Creators Network did spend some money highlighting the economic consequences of the Amazon pullout, Ocasio-Cortez deprived NY of 25,000 new jobs and $4 billion in annual wages, ' said Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO in the press release. "It's wild", Ocasio-Cortez said. "When that happens, do you kind of regret getting into politics?" host Desus Nice asked the congresswoman.

"I mean, it is heavy, but in a weird way that stuff is validation that you're doing something real", she said. "It's not to say you get rid of agriculture".

She further went on to say: 'Billionaires paying to put up anti-progressive propaganda in Times Square is like the obscenely rich version of the scene where Michael Scott points to the Bubba Gump and saying "This is it, this is the heart of civilization, right here"'. "But, it's to say, listen, we got to address factory farming", Ocasio-Cortez added.

Ocasio-Cortez continued her grassroots campaign to a November victory more than three months ago and has quickly become one of the most recognizable faces and voices in Washington, D.C.

"This time around, we wanted to create something that celebrates the fresh new energy and diversity of the stagnated legislative body, and help some good causes at the same time", Blaylock explained. "Maybe we shouldn't be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner".

Ocasio-Cortez then concluded with how our decisions impact environmental progress: "But, we have to take a look at everything, and what we need to realize is that climate change is about every choice that we make in our lives". You can stream the entire episode for free on YouTube, or on Showtime.
