    You simply can't make this up.

    Ticket cost 35k, it was given to her, I'm certain that wasn't written off....lol.
    Dress and purse, 30k plus, it was given to her but I'm certain that was written off...lol
    Staff at the event, including those carrying her dress train of course had to where a mask but not the rich, they got their by private jet, limo's proving as usual the elite liberals are the biggest hypocrites in the world. The voting progressive minions are like starving kids eating their crumbs. She called herself an immigrant, yea from Canada that grew up in high dollar suburban neighborhood and went to Boston College before figuring out she was so dumb she had to bartend.

    By the standards of the people she claims to love, those being illegals and refugees, AOC is rich, but she’s already complained about needing a pay raise and said not being paid enough is why congressman engage in insider trading. Since quietly becoming a millionaire she stopped making that claim.

    And she’s a hypocrite.

    So you are upset that she went to an event with people she simultaneously wants to tax more?

    Democrats don’t necessarily hate rich people — many of them view taxes as necessary to advancing a nation and thus very patriotic. They just want them to do their fair share.

    She stands for the downtrodden by enthusiastically hobnobbing with the rich movers and shakers of NY. Fascinating.

    Don’t know — don’t care.

    I think we need to end mask mandates all together and let it do what it is going to do.

    Might be better for the country all together

    Her standing with the downtrodden is seen in her policy. Would you prefer she live in a golden palace while trying to destroy or ignoring the downtrodden instead?

    You mean by schmoozing with the golden palace dwellers? It’s called being tone deaf.

    If her policy doesn’t change I see no issue with her going to a fashion show.

    I don’t see why it is an issue. Can you explain?

    The ritziest gala in town. If she were serious she would have protested for the poor outside.

    Yea especially when they aren't paying. But it that is what they believe then why are they holding celebrations of our most patriotic citizens and what they do to advance our nation you know that top 1% that pays almost 40% of income taxes?

    Seeing that they hold about that percentage of the national wealth that is the minimum they should be paying.

    Not sure what your point is.

    First of all, you just got punked. If I have to choose between "Tax the Rich" and "I really don't care, do u?" I'm gonna pick AOC's punk over Melania's. Who's the populist again?

    Secondly, many wealthy people agree with her. There were billionaires there.

    So, what exactly is your point?

    Thinking the rich should pay more doesn’t mean nobody can have nice things

    While telling them she’ll raise their taxes and voting to do so.

    The Masking of the Servant Class: Ugly COVID Images From the Met Gala Are Now Commonplace - by Glenn Greenwald - Glenn Greenwald (substack.com)

    "Even though many of the wealthy white donors had no food in front of them and were not yet eating, there was not a mask in sight — except on the faces of the overwhelmingly non-white people hired as servants, all of whom had their gratuitous faces covered. Servants, apparently, are much more pleasant when they are dehumanized. There is no need for noses or mouths or other identifiable facial features for those who are converted into servile robots."

    Of course that's what she's doing. You surely didn't think she was doing it for her own pleasure, did ya?

    How about anyone who CLAIMS to be all about the downtrodden, behave as though that's true. They can start with living amongst them, and forfeiting their access to the luxuries the poor don't have access to.

    Or they could stop pretending. Claim to support of ALL Americans, and then get to live however they want.

    Yes, it does. Nice things can only be had by being rich and NOT paying away your fortune in taxes.
