Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says There's 'No Question' About Trump's Racism

After House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for her proposed 70-percent income tax, she quickly struck back - and her supporters followed up with threats aimed at the GOP leader who was almost killed by a critical shot from a Democratic terrorist shooter past year.

She made a big one during a sit-down with Anderson Cooper that aired on "60 Minutes" on Sunday. "I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct, than about being morally right".

Ally Sheedy, the actor who played Allison Reynolds in The Breakfast Club, and whose dance moves Ocasio-Cortez was imitating, said she was: "pretty happy 'bout it", later writing "I love this #teamAOC".

During the interview, Cooper asked if she thinks President Trump is a racist.

By their calculations, Trump has uttered more than 7,600 untruths during the two years of his presidency - an average of 15 erroneous claims a day during 2018.

In a tweet last month, Ocasio-Cortez blasted Trump Jr. for insulting her, in turn sparking backlash from conservatives who saw her comments as a power-abusing threat to the president's eldest son.

But despite the fact that her supporters had her back, Ocasio-Cortez made a decision to go the extra mile to prove that she didn't care what conservatives had to say about her.

She also acknowledged that her goal is "ambitious".

After Ocasio-Cortez was elected to Congress, she stated her intention to support Democratic candidates challenging Democrat incumbents, saying, "Long story short, I need you to run for office".

Raptors expecting hostile reception for Leonard in San Antonio
Kawhi Leonard is persona-non-grata in San Antonio these days after forcing his way out via trade this past summer. The other player the Raptors acquired in the blockbuster trade predicted as much on Thursday.

While Newsweek proclaimed in a headline that "Conservatives Mock [ed] Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez" and Ocasio-Cortez herself posted a second dancing video, right-wingers and Republicans have been otherwise unbothered.

'The President certainly didn't invent racism, ' Ocasio-Cortez said, 'but he's certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things.' the type of socialism found in the former Soviet Union, Cuba or Venezuela. Now, AOC simply floats the idea of returning to the marginal tax rates of the period of USA history that Baby Boomers claim to be idyllic, and look at what happens. Higher taxes on every dollar earned above $10 million isn't likely to lower multimillionaires' drive to remain rich (though it could arguably encourage them to seek ways to avoid taxes).

In the same interview, she explained her push for a so-called "green new deal", suggesting raising taxes up to 70-percent in order to get it done.

Ocasio-Cortez has called the aim - funded in part by slapping a tax as high as 70 percent on top earners - "a wartime-level, just economic mobilization plan to get to 100 percent renewable energy".

Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the post on Friday with the caption, "You hate me coz you ain't me, fellas".

"I say true things all the time - I'd hope most do", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

As if New Yorkers don't already pay enough in taxes, Ocasio-Cortez wants to make them the highest tax payers in the nation - many times over.

Scalise has not publicly expressed any objections to those tweets against Ocasio-Cortez.
