Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, hereafter known as the Gift That Keeps On Giving, has given yet another gift to the Republican Party — a tweet bragging about the bills she’s introduced using her best rap-happy twang.
It’s like former President Barack Obama’s farewell to the government drop mic moment, times 10 eye rolls.
First, the backstory, from BizPacReview: Mike Murphy, a technology editor at Quartz, wrote on Twitter that “it’s gonna be awesome when @AOC turns twitter vitriol into legislation.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded with this: “This week I cosponsored bills in support of DC statehood (HR51), repeal of PAYGO, comprehensive voting reform (HR1), and a bunch of other things, so it’s already begun. I’m dropping my first original resolution soon it’s like a mixtape, but with way more nerdy producers.”
Let the mocking begin.
“Oh, ur so gangster, what ya gonna drop next,” wrote one social media commenter, as noted by BizPacReview.
GOPUSA Editor’s Note: What next? How about promising to ‘run train?’
Another: “Mentally, you stalled out at about twelve years old. If you’re looking at your job as a ‘mixtape,’ you need to get the hell out of office immediately and let an intelligent adult take over.”
And another: “‘A bunch of other things’ — can’t wait. Maybe you should do what freshmen congressmen/women are supposed to do — keep your mouth closed and eyes and ears open for your first few months at least? I don’t think the AMERICAN people are ready for a congressional mixtape, ever.”
And one more: “You dont ‘drop legislation like it is a mixtap’ just ridiculous but this is where society is. Let the asteroid come asap.”
There’s some truth in them there words.
Congressional office is supposed to be a humble and sober chance to serve the American citizenry in a manner that upholds the Constitution.
Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist policies already violate that premise. But after reading her down-with-the-street-peeps’ boasts about bills, it just adds to the conclusion: She doesn’t belong in Congress. She should take her socialist mixtape and go.
