    The new face of the Democratic Party lied about her campaign and showed an extreme lack of knowledge about political issues in an embarrassing interview this week on Comedy Central.

    Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared on "The Daily Show" with host Trevor Noah where she claimed that she has not taken money from corporations or political action committees (PACs) and suggested that she has not taken money from private equity firms.



    Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims she is different because she doesn't accept money from corporations and private equity firms.

    Ocasio-Cortez has taken $3,399 from JPMorgan Chase & Co (a corporation) and $2,700 from Elevation Partners (a private equity firm).




    Some of Ocasio-Cortez's top donors include Justice Democrats, a regular PAC which gave $7,706 to her campaign; J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., a corporation that gave $3,399 to her campaign; and Elevation Partners, a private equity firm that gave $2,700 to her campaign.

    Ocasio-Cortez later made three false statements within the span of one-minute about Seattle's minimum wage, wages earned by American citizens, and the size of the U.S. population.

    First, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that Seattle's $15 minimum wage was an example of a $15 minimum wage not hurting an economy, despite the fact that studies have actually shown that it has significantly hurt Seattle's economy.

    Next, Ocasio-Cortez claimed: "One of the biggest problems that we have is 200 million Americans make less than $20,000 a year. That’s 40 percent of this country."

    For starters, MRCTV notes that "if 200 million Americans equates to 40 percent of the country, that’d mean there are a whopping 500 million Americans in total. Except that there aren’t – there are about 328 million, meaning that 200 million would make up about 61 percent of the total national population, not 40."




    Her claim that 200 million Americans make less than $20,000 a year is off by tens of millions of people as U.S. Census Bureau statistics show that approximately 28 million American households live on incomes of $25,000 or less and the median household income is over $57,000.

    In the most ridiculous part of the interview, Ocasio-Cortez struggled mightily to come up with a rational and coherent explanation of how to pay for her dreams of large government programs.


    Axios reporter Jonathan Swan also noted her completely false claims at the end of the segment about the U.S. military:

    So, she’s been funded 80% less than a pay-off for a trump sex-scandal sex worker.

    She’s in the wrong business.

    Anyhoo, did you watch the interview yourself?

    Corporate tax (to the level they should have been paying before trump’s tax bill) and less military spending.

    Re-prioritising tax-spending basically. Like any any socialist would.
    But hey, you don’t want your kids to have free health care and education... don’t vote for her.

    Onviously there’s a right-wing whip up of fear driven scare-mongering and hate.
    God damn, you certainly don’t want an attractive, well spoken, Latino female taking over from Bernie... that might actually convince young people that trump lies and conservative economic policies only benefit the rich, but that much more can be achieved by walking different paths.

    "Correction: A previous version of this report inaccurately stated that Ocasio-Cortez accepted money from JPMorgan Chase & Co and Elevation Partners. The error was based on a separate news report that did not state that the money given to her by those two organizations was not from the organization but was from the organizations' PACs, their individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals' immediate families."

    OOPS!

    They say that they are socialists.

    Well looks look at socialism, Venezuela and North Korea.

    Europeans say, but wait, look at us! 😵

    Problem is, they are a mixture of socialism and not straight up socialists. Government does not own corporations directly.

    So it is a combination of being wary of people who are either trying to mischaracterize their political stance, or are truthful and want to turn us into Venezuela. Either way, it's not good.

    The problem with the US is, $20 trillion plus in debt. The more you trend towards socialism and redistribution, the less the economy preforms.

    It's like the economy under Trump and Obama. Look at the comparison.

    The US needs to go into over drive to help stay afloat economically and stop these trillion dollar deficits. If these socialist loons want to begin to offer even more free stuff, they need to say how they are going to pay for it all. All they end up saying is, "Gut the military", but we all know that they will still run trillion dollar deficits, just like the GOP does.

    In fact, both parties are carbon images of each other in regards to spending. The only difference is, the GOP helps the economy stay afloat a little longer as they promote a faster growing economy. Both parties will lead to the economic ruin of the Republic.
