The Progressive ‘gang of four’ squad performs before congress: teary-eyed about the border and the kicker is that AOC demanded to be sworn in even though it is against the law to lie to Congress.
“Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is more interested in scoring political points than actually solving the crisis at the southern border,” a Republican source close to the committee told the Washington Examiner.
“Time and time again, she chooses photo-ops over actually legislating. Just look at today’s hearing. She asked to be sworn in prior to testifying before the Oversight Committee — something that never happens for members of Congress,” they added. “But that doesn’t matter to her. She just needed something to tweet. It just shows that Democrats are obsessed with political theater and attacking the president, rather than solving real problems facing the American people.”
At a hearing on migrant children and border security, @AOC is sworn in for dramatic effect.

Theatrics on parade. They ignored it and called it a “manufactured crisis” for months and even now all voted against humanitarian aid.
Prior to testifying to the House Oversight and Reform Committee on the conditions of the border detention facilities, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made an unusual request: she wanted to be sworn in.
Chairman Elijah Cummings obliged the New York Democrat’s request, but noted, “We usually don’t require a swearing in.”
In a tweet explaining why she asked to be sworn in, Ocasio-Cortez said it was because Republicans had been “stating that I am lying about the translated accounts of migrants at the border.”
It is against the law to lie to Congress, even if someone is not sworn in. More
Embarrassing. The crying, the sniveling, the lying. And “the children.” Always the children. These freshmen aren’t capable of anything, and I see nothing but chaos ahead.
It’s just theater. A show. Pathetic.

There should be no detention centers. They should all be closed immediately and all the occupants deported back to the country they came from. Problem solved, just that easy.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
