(Fox News)   There's zero evidence AOC attended college through admissions fraud, and we can't even find a pundit to say "It's possible, you just don't know", so we'll associate her with the scandal by claiming her "ignorance" is a symptom of the same problem   (foxnews.com) divider line

I'm not going to click the link because it's pretty freaking insane.  But exactly what are they claiming is ignorance on her part?

From the videos of various hearings I've seen she's a hell of a lot better prepared than the more experienced Representatives.   The one yesterday with her, Meadows, Cummings and Ross was brilliant and based on Cummings reactions to her, he's enjoying watching her take the pitch and hit it over the fence.

Apparently she's a dumb biatch because she exaggerated a couple times while talking about how bad global warming was going to be.

Also socialism which, according to your local aging white guy who is carefully avoiding any discussion of Trump, is the dumbest thing ever considered.

they're just getting out in front of it.  accuse early and then any actual accusation back at you sounds hollow.

I'd rather the MSM focus on AOC's questionable campaign finance shenanigans of her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti. I won't hold my breath.

But as for pundits saying "It's possible, you just don't know," subby, that pretty much wraps up the past two years of speculation about Trump's collusion with Russia to influence the election.

What?

It is amusing how verklempt people are getting over these stupid attacks on AOC. After repeating all the bullshiat Republicans have invented about Hillary Clinton, over and over. NOW they're outraged that Republicans lie about someone so gleefully and without any indication of shame or remorse.

Ironic, you might say.

Better than the one that's keeping Donald Trump in office? I'd say their propaganda machine works way too well in this country.

She graduated with a degree in Econ & Poli Sci and she doesn't spout their party line, therefore she must be stupid.

JDAT: Why on earth would anyone drag AOC into this scandal?


Because some people only read headlines, and six months from now all they'll remember is her name and picture somehow connected with the scandal. Besides, how else could a chica like her attend college if she didn't get in fraudulently? Probably an affirmative action admission, which is even worse than bribing your way into school.

I asked a dear old friend why she remained a Republican when the party doesn't care about them. She unfriended me, and I haven't heard from her in about 10 years.... which is likely for the best.

lol bartender

But in all seriousness, AOC doing all that and still being a bartender probably also speaks to alot of GenX, Millenials AND Gen Z who were told to go to college for a good job and still ended up waiting tables and slinging burgers at the end of it, because that's all the opportunity there was, and oftentimes it paid more than whatever unpaid internship or paid in exposure hoops you're supposed to jump through to even have a shot at the "good" jobs.

They haven't been failing, they're just not doing as well as they could because of those Democrat policies.

Yeah, that's the ticket.

Oh that's what FNC and the globs of flesh on Morning Joe on MSNBC have been spewing since it happened. DeBlasio  went on this morning & basically told them they are full of crap about AOC having anything to do with it. He basically said Amazon wasn't used to bad press + Bezos dick pics = them leaving town without even negotiating the issues that a few people had.

Or that financial firms weren't exactly on a hiring bonanza when she graduated because of the housing market collapse.

Or that for some grads, they can make more money if they continue bartending than if they took an entry level job in their field.

I started reading the manifesto. Not a lot but it sure seems like socialism is not it. I saw the bart write up (they won't link to it for obvious reasons) and my search for the word socialism came up bare.

Here it is if anyone is interested. Hopefully it won't get this post deleted.

Her questioning of the Well Fargo Exec has the RW all spun up since she suggested that financers of things like DAPL share in the risks in case of a spill, not just the rewards they get to incur by being able to hide behind "well, we don't operate the pipeline so it's not our fault everything is dead.  Who coulda thunk it?"

Now they accuse her of not knowing how banks work because they've been told to say that.

Serious.  Do a quick google or search on twitter.  It's even in this article; slipped in as if it were mounting evidence in some case against her.

On Tuesday, during congressional testimony, Ocasio-Cortez appeared bemused as Wells Fargo CEO explained the basic function of a bank. If Ocasio-Cortez represents the quality of an Economics degree from BU, the university should lose its accreditation.

Doubtful. They did the same shiat to Hillary Clinton for 20 years, and by the time she ran for President, even Democrats accused her fake scandals.
