WaPO Fact Checker has Five Simple Words for Alexandria "Facts Don't Matter" Cortez
Her 60 Minutes interview really made Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez live up to expectations. The quote about people being more concerned about "facts" than being "morally right" is the stuff dreams are made of. You might even say she was endorsing "alternative facts." All corners across the interwebs are laughing to the point of milk coming out of their noses. Not amused is Glenn Kessler, fact checker for The Washington Post.
He already flunked OcasiLOL-Cortez once before. For this, Kessler only needed a five-word tweet.
Sorry, not the right answer. https://t.co/aqMADobOvJ— Glenn Kessler (@Glenn Kessler) 1546828066.0
I'm sure whatever PR firm helps to run Ocasio-Cortez's Twitter account if crafting a response right now. Or a "clap back," if you will. Most likely centering on Kessler white-maleness, and how any criticism of AOC is patriarchal and mansplaining. Probably a lot of "they" are trying to silence me's. Plus the usual word vomit of buzzwords you need a "leftist activist to grown-up English" dictionary to translate.
Still, AOC got softly spanked for yet another misstatement. It's pretty much the way of her. Not that it matters since she's got the hot privilege. The left will excuse her various missteps because she's "owning the cons" while dancing her way into everyone's hearts. That seems to just be politics.
