Move over, Joe Biden: There’s a new oracle of obliviousness in the democratic party.
For years, Joe Biden was one of the more entertaining politicians to watch. It wasn’t the swagger that he attempted to bring to his appearances, nor was it his long history of political flip-floppery that earned him this distinction, however. Instead, it was Biden’s long-standing ability to put his foot directly in his mouth at the drop of a hat.
Coming to take his crown is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman Congresswoman from New York City who began her career by dodging accusations that her claim of an impoverished upbringing was all for show. To combat this, AOC hired a photographer to capture an image of her sitting on a stoop in a lower-income area of The Big Apple, but while wearing a $3,500 velour pantsuit.
In the ensuing months, Ocasio-Cortez continued her missteps at an alarming pace, becoming fodder for memes galore.
Now, after earning her reputation for tongue-slips and asinine assertions, AOC has somehow mustered the gall to call her fellow democrats uneducated in an appearance on The Late Show.
Here is a partial transcript:
OCASIO-CORTEZ: I think sometimes with the debate stage this big, it can kind of seem like a high school classroom, and so there are some folks that, like, didn’t seem like they read the book, and then they got called on. And then —
COLBERT: Anybody in particular?
OCASIO-CORTEZ: “You know, you kind of like— it depends on the question. So— so they’ll answer the question or they’ll get called on, and I don’t think some candidates thought that they were going to get called on, on a certain question. And they’ll be like, “Yes, the hero was courageous and the protagonist of the story.
This is akin to Ted Bundy calling someone a “psychopath” and trying to be taken seriously.
There’s no telling what reaction AOC will have for tonight’s second round of debate among the massive democratic field of candidates.
