Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was elected to Congress on a platform of hating President Trump.
But the New York Congresswoman continues to make a laughingstock of herself in Washington.
And this time, she completely humiliated herself when this attack on Trump backfired.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates President Donald Trump.
She was elected to Congress by promising to attack Trump on everything and oppose him any way she can.
And so far, she has tried to do just that.
But Ocasio-Cortez has also run into some serious problems along the way.
Not only has she shown the rest of the country how little she knows about government, but her office is also mired in a massive scandal involving allegedly illegal campaign finance actions which could bring about her political downfall.
Now to make matters worse for her, Ocasio-Cortez can’t even attack Trump without humiliating herself.
The Daily Caller has the story, “Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a moment to remind everyone that the United States has a “Muslim ban” — but she missed a few key facts.”
“Laying the blame squarely at the feet of President Donald Trump and the Republicans who don’t stop him, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Daily reminder that we have a **Muslim Ban** in this country made out of the President’s hostility to Muslim people w/ little-to-no supporting evidence, and a Republican Party that tolerates it. There is so much work to do. Repealing the Ban is square 1.”,” reports the Daily Caller.
The comment came after the recent shooting in New Zealand, which horrified the world.
But when Ocasio-Cortez tried to attack President Trump as being the source of the shooting, she completely showed everyone how little she knows.
For starters, President Trump’s “Muslim ban” does not even include some of the largest Muslim majority nations in the world.
What’s more, two of the countries on his ban aren’t even Muslim at all, Venezuela and North Korea, which are majority Catholic and Buddhist / Confucianist respectively.
To make matters worse for Ocasio-Cortez, the Supreme Court upheld the so-called “Muslim ban” by pointing out that President Trump did not use race or religion to identify countries to ban immigration from, but rather the likelihood that migrants from these countries would be prone to terrorist activity.
That’s why the Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration in this case, and it goes to show just how wrong Ocasio-Cortez is on something that is so simple to grasp.
But Ocasio-Cortez isn’t a stranger to getting things wrong.
She has such a terrible grasp of how government works that she once declared that she would be “signing bills” the day after she took office, despite the fact that signing legislation is the President’s job, not the job of a single member of Congress.
The truth is, Ocasio-Cortez has no idea what she’s talking about half of the time and the other half of the time she’s so misguided that she can’t even present the facts in a half accurate manner.
This is no exception.
Do you think that Ocasio-Cortez’s attacks on President Trump are wrong?
