Respect

I never thought I’d say this but today I really respect AOC.

  1. The problem is, Biden will be so senile by election day that he’ll forget that AOC nominated Bernie, and he’ll probably appoint her to a cabinet position ANYWAY! 😦

  2. This is so odd. I mean, you’ve never misinterpreted the facts before, and then built an opinion around your misinterpretation.

    NBC news said “In one of the shortest speeches of the DNC, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez did not endorse Joe Biden. “I hearby second the nomination of Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont for president for president.”

    NBC waited a while, then issued this statement:
    “Editor’s note and clarification: This tweet should have included more detail on the nominating process. We have deleted the tweet to prevent its further spread. Ocasio-Cortez was asked by the DNC to second Sanders’ nomination. The nomination is a procedural requirement of the convention. Ocasio-Cortez has previously endorsed Biden, & her speech was similar in length to other nominating speeches.”

    Ocasio-Cortez replied:
    “You waited several hours to correct your obvious and blatantly misleading tweet. It sparked an enormous amount of hatred and vitriol, & now the misinfo you created is circulating on other networks. All to generate hate-clicks from a pre-recorded, routine procedural motion. This is completely unacceptable, disappointing, and appalling. The DNC shared the procedural purpose of my remarks to media WELL in advance. NBC
    knew what was going to happen & that it was routine. How does a headline that malicious & misleading happen w/ that prior knowledge?”

    AOC went on to say:
    “If you were confused, no worries! Convention rules require roll call & nominations for every candidate that passes the delegate threshold. I was asked to 2nd the nom for Sen. Sanders for roll call. I extend my deepest congratulations to @JoeBiden – let’s go win in November. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ ”

    Surely, this has to be the first time Clarissa has misinterpreted the facts. You’re usually correct about U.S. politics and history and culture.

    1. I thought I made my feelings about teenage-level snarkiness abundantly clear but apparently not so. Instead, you created a whole narrative in your head about the reason why I said I respect AOC and started gushing all over your own fantasy.

      Oh, look everybody, someone who might actually be a bigger narcissist than Trump!
