Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the ultimate April fool. Along with all the other eleven months. Case in point, our girl Crazy Eyes was at the airport and she wasn’t feeling the price of croissants. This led her to unleash a flurry of dumb directed toward the minimum wage and Republicans.
Get ready for this:
GOP taking every tweet so earnestly, making my point for me. It’s not an argument against the price of a croissant – it’s about the value of human worth.
But I guess that idea is foreign to them since their policies treat people as disposable anyway 🤷🏽♀️

First of all, what the hell is Alex doing at the airport? Not sure if she’s aware, but that’s where the planes are. If Alexandria doesn’t wanna be a hypocrite, she’d better nix the plane ticket and hitch a ride on the Amtrak with Creepy Joe Biden. Hours of Joey rubbing Ocasio-Cortez’s shoulders and sniffing her hair as the choo-choo putters along.
The workers of the croissant dispensary aren’t chained up in the back room. Under the watch of a stooge from the croissant-industrial complex. With a gun to the workers’ heads telling them “bake or die.” When you go to work, you’re paid exactly what you’re willing to work for. Both parties consent to the exchange. You’d think an economics major would be able to grasp such a concept. Alas, the only things AOC can grasp are straws.
Here, let Ben explain:
AOC: Why does this croissant cost $7? We should pay the workers who sell it $15 per hour!
::Price of croissants rise to $9::

The cost of the product is determined by what it cost to produce the product. Including the wage of people selling you the product. Hike the price of the labor, and up goes the price of the croissant. Math, baby.
Part of me was thinking this has to be a poorly executed April Fool’s joke. Though, that would be giving ol’ “Three Chambers” here too much credit. If Cortez is the future of the left, we’ve got some big trouble ahead of us.
While we’re talking AOC:
