    So now Fox News personalities are mocking newly elected Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez because she's not wealthy enough to easily/quickly afford a Washington, DC apartment? Forget the FACT that she beat the odds AGAINST long time established Democrat & Republican incumbents ON THE ISSUES as a SOCIALIST-DEMOCRAT...it's any picayune thing the Fox folk can focus on to try and discredit the woman even before she starts her job. Sad, but not unprecedented.

    Well, she's a pandering empty-suit conservative like most Dems, but the fact that the nation is experiencing an affordable housing crisis is very serious.

    Neither the Reps nor Dems give a rat's ascot of course.

    they weren't mocking her because she wasn't wealthy they were mocking her because about a week ago when asked how are we going to pay for her agenda of Medicaid for all and her reply was " you just pay for it"
    so now when she is complaining about the problem of not being able to afford an apartment in DC the reply to her is the same "you just pay for it"
    they were mocking the irony of it all
    but I know that complicated humor goes right over your head

    She didn't "beat the odds" through any sort of merit, other than being a walking talking platitude machine.

    Fox would do better if they engaged in more serious reporting...

    Such as calling her: RASIST!, NAZI!, WHITE-SUPREMACIST!, WHATEVEROPHOBE!, STUPID!, LIAR!

    How did you arrive at your condemnation of Ocasio-Cortez? I grant you she's been guilty of hype and generalizations in her media campaign interviews, but "pandering empty suit" is a bit extreme.

    Read the article. The rest of your post is just right wing drivel worthy of Hannity, Levine and Limbaugh.

    Translation: the woman won a political race fare & square, as the people tired of the SOS from Dems & Repubs...and ModCon doesn't like it.

    Mind you, she's been nailed for hype and generalizations in her press blitz. But, research beyond what Fox tells you...which is usually half the story if not an out right lie:

    Condemnation! Hell she is a gift to the country. Finally a untrained socialist to stupid to learn and eagerly willing to show the country what the hidden side of the leftist a democratic party is really about :)

    Fox will give here top priority coverage and the LWM will ignore her Trump positives :) Long live Cortez!

    You seem to take your opinion, suppositions and conjecture as fact. Is the sky blue in your world? No matter, blather on.

    Questioning people who are going to sit in congress who believe in Santa is reasonable.

    Unless of course you believe in Santa in which case you might choose to make hissy fit threads like this to get attention from fellow believers.

    Yahoo.com is like linking to National enquirer lol but still preaching to the converted you'll have no end lap it up.

    Come on now, just about every major metropolitan area in America today has a barrio for Mexicans, Latino gangs including MS-13, illegal aliens and young anarchist and socialist to live in and call their hood or barrio.

    Washington DC is no different.

    There are more than a few high crime slums in D.C. for Comrade Cortez to find an apartment or garage to rent.

    Comrade Cortez should send some Antifa scouts out to search for a cheap apartment in the 7th or 8th Wards of D.C.

    [​IMG]



    Here are the 10 worst neighborhoods in Washington according to data but every Marxist/socialist and even illegal aliens and gag bangers call it my hood, my barrio. Cheap rent and free stuff.

    1. Brentwood
    2. Deanwood
    3. Anacostia
    4. Stadium-Armory
    5. Fort Totten-Upper Northeast
    6. Catholic University-Brookland
    7. South West
    8. Brightwood
    9. Downtown
    10. Petworth

    While I think she is not competent to serve in the house, I do like the idea that bartender could win a congressional election. That fact was very entertaining.

    Are you kidding? She wears expensive clothes yet cannot afford an apartment? She needs to be mocked.
