The network, which was just slapped with having pay to $250,000 in attorney's fees stemming from a defamation lawsuit that was dismissed last year against MSNBC, has been elevated by the ex-president as his network of choice after his falling out with Fox News but now, as the report notes, won't even grace them with an interview to help boost their viewership. As the report states, "Since the election, conservative networks have been locked in a three-way wrestling match for who gets the MAGA television audience. Fox News has been deemed traitorous by Trump's fans for reporting that Joe Biden fairly won the presidential election, and is seeing its worst ratings in decades.

Republicans Accuse Ocasio-Cortez Of Not Being Anywhere Near Place They Told Capitol Mob She Would Be

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Thursday of not being anywhere near the place they told the Capitol mob she would be. “She was supposed to be in a room just off the Capitol rotunda, which is where we told the angry white nationalists she’d be hiding, but she wasn’t even there,” said South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace, one of the many republicans condemning Ocasio-Cortez for hiding in a completely different building during the insurrection instead of where her colleagues told the violent rioters they should expect to find her.

“A quick examination of the Capitol grounds map we gave the insurrectionists will prove that while they stormed the area where we drew the big ‘X’, the representative was actually in a location that was nowhere close to there.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blasted U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday after he criticized newly-sworn in President Joe Biden for rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement hours after taking office. The embattled Texas Senator tried to pay homage to former President Donald Trump in a tweet suggesting that the historic accords were simply about "the views of the citizens of Paris," instead of "the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh. " 197 countries have signed the Paris Agreement, nine – including the U.S. under Trump – have pulled out or are no longer following it.

"By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden indicates he's more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh," Cruz tweeted Wednesday.

Brittany GreesonGetty Images Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez condemned out the hypocrisy of the Blue Lives Matter movement in an Instagram Live video Tuesday, after a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol last week.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Called Out "Blue Lives Matter" Hypocrisy

"I don’t want to hear or see the Republican Party talk about blue lives ever again," Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said. "This was never about safety for them. It was always a slogan, because if they actually cared about rule of law they would speak up when people break the law. "" AOC's cooking live streams perfect the recipe for making politics palatable. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Or talk up a storm about the minimum wage, healthcare and the existential struggle for democracy. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest Instagram live stream found the youngest woman ever elected to the US Congress standing at a chopping board with two lemons and a plastic jug as she expounded her political philosophy. “Both Democrats and Republicans,” she said, scooping up a lemon with her right hand, “when they indulge in these narratives of commonsense policies being radical,” – setting the lemon down on the board again – “what they’re trying to is really shorten the window of what’s possible.”

A twee icing contest on The Great British Bake Off this is not. And as far as we know, Gordon Ramsay, Ina Garten and Nigella Lawson have never been heard to exclaim, “Shoutout to my fellow radicals!” AOC's Challenge For Trump To Compare College Transcripts Goes Viral. You'd think this dope (Trump) would learn by now, but apparently he's not capable of learning anything.

AOC's Challenge For Trump To Compare College Transcripts Goes Viral

Soon after his appearance on Fox Business News and AOC caught wind of what he said, she let him have it, right between the eyes, with both barrels. Source: Occupy Democrats President Trump always reserves his most insulting and demeaning insults for women who challenge him, his sense of personal misogyny simply aghast at the idea that a woman would dare to have ideas contrary to his own or criticisms of his appalling administration.

That urge was put on full display this morning during a call to FOX Business in which he took aim at the right-wing’s favorite bogeywoman, Rep. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez shows she can walk it like she talks it in door-to-door food delivery effort. Data the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene compiled showed that in the first month of the COVID-19 pandemic the virus infected more than 40,000 people and killed more than 1,000, with the most affected zip codes in Queens, the Bronx, and Brooklyn, according to The New York Times.

As of Tuesday, the death toll was up to more than 14,345, and the city reported 247,543 confirmed COVID-19 cases. “There is a clear reason our communities are hit hardest by COVID: the vast, systemic inequalities that were growing pre-COVID are now determining who lives or dies in this pandemic,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. The Medicare for All proponent said the Bronx, which is about 44% Black and 56% Hispanic, has twice the death rate of the rest of New York City. “We have long been talking about how healthcare should be treated as a human right in the United States, why we need Medicare for All, and this is one huge case study as to why this is so important,” she said. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rips the Senate for taking off for a month as coronavirus cases climb. Writing in The Bulwark this Wednesday, Tim Miller chronicled how President Trump "downplayed the threat of and ignored warnings" of the burgeoning threat of coronavirus in the early days of the outbreak.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rips the Senate for taking off for a month as coronavirus cases climb

Despite the documented evidence of the White House initially attempting to minimize the threat, the Trump administration is trying to establish an "alternate reality" that paints Trump as a competent leader who was ahead of the situation. "On March 18 the Trump campaign put out a list of actions the U.S. government took to prepare for COVID-19. They meant this as exculpation; instead, it highlights just how asleep Trump was at the switch, despite warnings from experts within his own government and from former Trump administration officials pleading with him from the outside," Miller writes.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez appeared on "State of the Union" yesterday to discuss Congress' attempts to pass an economic relief bill in the face of the virtual standstill caused by COVID-19.

AOC Destroys GOP On Bailouts For Big Business In Emergency Relief Package

The Senate's bill contained multiple provisions that appeared awfully sweet to large corporations, and gave nearly free reign to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to write the checks. Thankfully, and thanks to Democratic solidarity, the bill failed. AOC explained with clarity and urgency what is truly needed to get the economy moving. Unsurprisingly, it's the most humane solution, as well. ‘You lost me’: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graciously defuses confrontational question. In an appearance on ABC‘s popular daytime talk show “The View” Wednesday, Rep.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke about what she called a “disconnect” between centrist, establishment members of the Democratic Party and progressive lawmakers who have been viewed as agitators in the party. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said that while she had applauded Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise victory in her 2018 primary against Wall Street-backed former Rep.

Joe Crowley, she has since cooled on the lawmaker due to what she views as a dismissal of baby boomers’ past activism. Ocasio-Cortez has pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to back a Green New Deal, called on her fellow Democrats to support Medicare for All, and criticized Democrats who take big-money donations from the financial, for-profit healthcare, and fossil fuel sectors. “You lost me because it felt like you were saying to people like me that I was too old and didn’t do enough,” Goldberg said. The View’s audience roars as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez schools Meghan McCain on socialism. “The View” co-host Meghan McCain challenged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to defend her socialist policies, and the audience roared in approval as she laid them out. The New York Democrat appeared Wednesday on the daytime talk show, and McCain compared herself to the first-year lawmaker.

“I feel like you’re the bogeywoman of the right and I’m the bogeywoman of the left, so it’s interesting to be talking to you,” McCain said. “Because what you’re proposing and what Bernie Sanders is proposing, you said Fox was, like, ushering in the apocalypse to conservatives like me that think big government is very dangerous, it is like the apocalypse. It’s not just that Bernie is asking a lot of voters to buy into what I consider radical ideas like the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, he’s advocating for a complete paradigm shift of the American system as we know it, and it’s a huge ask for people like me and it’s a huge ask for a lot of people, the seismic shift from capitalism to socialism.” ‘Corrupt, illegal, authoritarian’: Ocasio-Cortez shames Susan Collins for enabling Trump’s NY quid-pro-quo threat. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Thursday expressed outrage at President Donald Trump for tying the blocking of New York residents’ access to Global Entry with the state’s lawsuits against him and his businesses.

In a tweet posted earlier in the day, Trump listed demands he would make of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to get the Global Entry hold lifted, including having the state “stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits and harrassment (sic).” Ocasio-Cortez takes victory lap after Amazon goes to NYC — even after she helped block $3 billion in subsidies. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was one of the progressive leaders in New York City credited with blocking $3 billion in public subsidies for Amazon to open an additional headquarters.

But Amazon is moving into NYC despite the lack of subsidies. “The giant online retailer said it has signed a new lease for 335,000 square feet on the city’s west side in the new Hudson Yards neighborhood, where it will have more than 1,500 employees,” The Wall Street Journal reported. Ocasio-Cortez fires back after Trump brands her a 'Do Nothing Democrat' AOC Wins Twitter Again, This Time Against Dave Rubin. So, as we know, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a long record of burning critics on social media. Once again she has proven that you just don‘t put an older, conservative white guy up against a young person who actually knows how social media works. AOC and Bernie Sanders put out an announcement of their Green New Deal for Public Housing Act, a fine proposal that, of course, has met with no end of criticism from the political right.

But one particular right-wing figure had a little more of a snarky response. Dave Rubin tried to hit back at AOC on his twitter account about an email announcing the Act.

Our president has reportedly promised to pardon his subordinates if they break the law while following his orders to get the Big, Beautiful Wall built, which you can file under Things That Would See Any Other President Subjected to Impeachment Hearings. But it seems that as long as Nancy Pelosi is Speaker of the House, the most severe repercussions he'll face are Concerned Statements. No need to use the constitutional tools at the Speaker's disposal in order to uphold her and her colleagues' oath to protect that Constitution.

Beat him in 2020 will be the rallying cry. In fairness, a new poll from Quinnipiac would seem to indicate the odds of that happening aren't bad at all. Republicans reveal their ignorance of US government with their latest attack on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: columnist. A common right-wing talking point one hears against abolishing the Electoral College and electing presidents via a popular vote in the United States is, “We’re a republic, not a democracy.” Rep. Dan Crenshaw recently used that type of argument during a Twitter exchange with Rep. AOC calls out #MoscowMitch over his El Paso crocodile tears. We definitely need more of this from Democrats when they’re at loggerheads with their morally challenged brethren across the aisle — because we’re well the fuck past being cordial. In the wake of the deadly El Paso shooting, #MoscowMitch thought he’d slip in a fake condolence tweet before moving on with his oily, squandered life, but Rep.
