Maybe. It's a stretch though. Trump would've tried to bullshit his way out of it and sounded legitimately retarded though. Then he'd claim to be an expert on geo-politics politics. At least she had the self awareness to concede.

Still, even not giving her the benefit of the doubt the reaction seems a bit disproportional to the blunder.
She only had the self awareness to concede after sitting there for 5 seconds trying to come up with some bullshit. Had she sat there any longer than it would have been absolutely disastrous, so she had no choice but to retreat to 'I have no fucking idea what I meant HAHAHAHA'.

Two things can be true at once -- Trump is a clown, AOC is also a clown.

I think she's awesome. She's lacking some experience with the Government, but she's no idiot. She's 29 years old. Among the youngest to ever serve in U.S. Congress. She is SCARY to Republicans. She wants a "Green New Deal" because um, we are killing our fucking planet and our current president says "fuck the planet, mining jobs are disappearing in Virginia". That makes no god damn sense. At least someone is trying to put ideas out there to mitigate climate change.

I have to just laugh at the comparisons to Sarah Palin.. Sarah Palin was a local weather-lady for whom it took 5 years and enrollment in 5 different colleges to earn a communications/journalism degree. AOC has a dual Bachelor's in International Relations and Economics, and graduated at the top of her class... It took her less than 4 years to obtain those degrees. She's light years more qualified for government office than Sarah "I can see Russia from my house" Palin.
The problem seems to be a rather profound lack of common sense.

A member of the Democratic Socialists of America, Ocasio-Cortez has advocated for a progressive platform that includes Medicare For All, a federal jobs guarantee, guaranteed family leave, establishing a Green New Deal, abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, free public college and trade school, infrastructure projects for renewable energy, and a 70% marginal tax rate for incomes above $10 million.
Her "free" stuff would bankrupt the nation, not to mention drive a lot of wealth overseas. Many of her proposals are simply unworkable. Her odd behaviors (facial expressions, bug eyes, etc.) on camera contribute to the image that she is kinda dumb or insane.

PS: She graduated cum laude, which is not the top honor. Both magna and summa (plus the rarely used maxima) are above that. She wasn't a bad student by any means, but top of her class with cum laude? Doubtful.

I'd honour her with my cum laude, if you know what I mean.

She smiles real big and people screencap her at just the right moments to make her look insane.
Kind like they do Trump to make him look smug and pompous

I didn't say "first" in her class, I said "top". She was among the top students in her graduating class. But that was just in there to compare her to Sarah Palin, who graduated notta gauddam thing laude.

Show dem balls bro
Not impressed. Really wish she had the goods, but she has a child's mindset. A millennial child's mindset at that. It's shit like this that shows she has a lot of growing up to do.

Except she clapped back at Lieberman perfectly (and in a way young people understand and like). He basically ditched the Democrat party and went Republican... and he wrote legislation against violence in video games. Of course she's gonna do a millenial clapback.

The day I vote for someone who's professional political response is "New party, who dis?" is the day I give up on politics.

BTW I'm from California and a democrat. If this is the future of the party then lord help us all.

Ever been to that one family house party where one of the kids goes into their parents closet puts on moms or dads cloths and amuses the group by acting all grown own.

AOC is a box of comedy gold. Just keep putting a mic on front of her.

What is this stupid shit she says, for example?

I don't know much about her other than the Hardcore Republicans have an absolute hardon for hating on her.

What shit does she say?

In the video Pedderrs posted she was asked a question and said she gave a fairly weak response then said she wasn't an expert on geo-politics. She was mocked for that. I don't think you need to be an expert to know the situation in Gaza is a travesty and the Isrealis bear most of the burden of blame for it.

Then she's criticized for criticizing rampant capitalism.

What am I missing?

Genuine question.
But she's a Puerto Rican Jew from da Bronx

Just seems like a bunch of right wing screechers to be honest.

She's the left wing Trump, she's populist and ideological, says things that "get the people going" but often don't make much sense and aren't practical, like "zero carbon emissions in the next 20 years" or whatever timescale she gave for that but you would think Fidel Castro was on the rise the way some people go on about her.

That clip where she is demonstrating how fucked the system was is pretty good though ... hopefully through all her childish opinions on carbon emission levels and racial equity, she can help with some positive things that America actually needs ... like ensuring large populated areas aren't having toxic fucking water through their mains line with no one apparently giving a fuck about fixing it.


A toxic crisis in America’s coal country
She pours a glass of water from her kitchen tap and lets it rest on a table. It has a strange smell and a sticky texture and within minutes begins to turn dark orange. A layer of black sediment soon sinks to the bottom of the glass.

"This is what we have to live with," Casey says. "We don't bathe in the water and we don't cook with it. It stains our fingernails, our knuckles, and our clothes. It's really, really difficult living like this."

Casey and her husband Jack (not his real name), have two young children and drive for more than an hour to stock up on bottled water to drink and cook with. So who do they hold responsible?

"I've been here all my life, but when the surface [coal] mine came in that's when the water started changing," says Jack, who, despite being a miner himself, believes the industry is accountable for his family's water problems.

"I think if they've done wrong they should have to fix it."

I dont know anything of her politics so I cant comment on that.

As for it being defeatist, I agree, it is, but it's also realistic because the second any country stops being on the attack, they'll suffer. We don't live in a fair world where nations want to help each other and citizens do what's best for their neighbour. I wish we did - if I had the choice of every nation being run by their own AOC tomorrow, I'd take it and I think the world would be a better place but this will never happen. It's sad that this is the case but there is no realistic alternative to this very aggressive, ruthless, nasty ruling order that we have.
This is what people who think we shouldnt spend money on defense dont get.
