Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just made a complete fool of herself on national TV

The mainstream media routinely gives a free pass to their preferred candidates.

But sometimes they still swing and miss at even softball questions.

And the Democrat Party’s new star, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, just made a complete fool of herself for everyone to see.

Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez appeared on Jake Tapper’s CNN Sunday show.

Tapper caught her off guard with one simple question:

How will you pay for your socialist agenda?

She couldn’t give a straight answer.

The Daily Caller Reports:

CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday pressed New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on where she intended to get the money to fund one of her main platform policies, Medicare for all.

Tapper began by laying out the policies — such as Medicare for all, tuition-free public college and the cancellation of student loan debt — and the price tag, saying, “According to nonpartisan and left-leaning Tax Policy Center, the overall price tag is more than $40 trillion in the next decade…Where is the other $38 trillion going to come from?”…

Ocasio-Cortez again ignored the implied question, instead choosing to talk about people she knew who were crippled by the cost of premiums and deductibles. She then appeared to concede the fact that she wasn’t answering the question, saying, “We do know and acknowledge that there are political realities. They don’t always happen with the wave of a wand but we can work to make these things happen.”

Tapper then acknowledged that he “won’t get an answer for the other $38 trillion” from Ocasio-Cortez.

There is a good reason why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer Jake Tapper’s question.

She doesn’t understand the true cost of socialism.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already proposed raising taxes on the so-called “rich.”

But to pay for her socialist wish list she would to raise taxes on every American – substantially.

She claims to have “earned” a degree in economics from Boston University.

But she clearly needs to go back to school.

    Yawn. So what else is new.

    Cortez is just a pretty face. We may never know if Kavanaugh ever did anything wrong, or why Jeff Sessions is disloyal and refuses to do his job, or why America’s mainstream media (except for FOX) has become just as “fake news” as the “tabloids”. All I know for SURE is this: Our POTUS needs this extra Judge’s (Kavanaugh) vote in the Supreme Court for his Agenda, and here’s the MOST important thing to remember: Donald Trump is the ONE and ONLY “gift” and the “last chance” this country will EVER have to get back on her feet! If our incredible President doesn’t complete SIX MORE YEARS, Mike Pence (who has neither the drive, the ability, the independence or the “b—s” to fight the Deep State) will most probably NOT be elected, and this country will finally be RUN by Communists for the next century. And Communists – once they’re IN control – do NOT LET GO. Please — EVERYBODY who wants to to keep our great country No. #1 and on her financial and military feet for our children and grandchildren — Get out there and VOTE REPUBLICAN across the board in these Midterms. It’s absolutely THAT crucial.

  4. Shelba J. Holmes says:

    That simplwe minded woman makes a fool of herself every time she opens her mouth. She also makes fool sof the brainless Democrats who voted for her which is not easy to do.

  5. Eric Granberg says:

    She’s the perfect politician. Reframes the question then answers what she wants to answer. Republicans do it ALL THE TIME. And so do Democrats, BTW.

  6. MidnightDStroyer says:

    Should Cortez have her economics degree revoked? Yes.

    Considering that she got her degree from Boston University, I think they should also have their academic credentials revoked…For producing such a long string of Political Activists without regard to the world of objective reality existing outside of the Leftwing Agenda.

  7. Marlene says:

    I don’t think the democrats are really putting her forth as a real candidate. I think she is just a distraction for their real candidate. Watch, they will drop her and run someone not so obviously mentally deficient as she is. She will be pulled out and discarded. Can’t wait to see her face when she realizes she was just used like the useful idiot she is.

  9. Barbara Cook says:

    I agree with Maynard Altizer and I also agree with D. T. Osborn, she is always saying something that she has NO clue of how she will even pay for the Medicare for all or the Free college tuition.

    However, what we need to do, is let her keep on making a fool of herself, because, she is going to help the Democrats loose this midterm election, and that will be perfect for President Trump and the Republicans. By her making all of these promises and not knowing how she will pay for these, she is going to be the reason the Democrats will loose, and they can only blame themselves for having her in their race.

    So, everyone needs to go out and vote and help the Republicans and President Trump keep the House floor and just hopefully, the Republicans can also take the Senate floor as well, then President Trump and his administration will be able to finish with getting his agenda put forward!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can we all pray like HELL for this to HAPPEN??????????????????????????

    • Kerry says:

      I think she is a decoy to be used to get votes for her to nullify other people. This happened when Mr. Perot ran for president. Perot managed to split the Republican votes and the unwanted democrat got elected. I see this female as being used in a similar fashion. Besides that, fools will vote for anything that they they like. Free college tuition, and all debts nullified are high calling cards for those who either see no way out of their debt, or, want what they want and want it free.

  10. Ric B says:

    Yes, even the Dems realize she is a lightweight and does not know her stuff. Yet, she is young and might be willing to learn. I mean, look at Trump, whose professor at Wharton said “Trump is the dumbest goddamn student I had in 30 years!” Trump has the capacity, but was just to arrogant to learn – – a trait that has stayed with him, as his advisory just can’t get things through to him. Plus. Trump is too old and lazy to be president. His brain atrophied from lack of reading, thinking.

    • Shelly says:

      Thats funny because I just listened to Trumps Professor give him a glowing review about the fact he was a very intelligent student. He also talked about Trump’s IQ. I also read in Forbes Magazine that Trumps IQ is 156 which is considered genius . You people are so full of hate that you can’t even admit the facts when they are right in front of you.

    • Janet Romanofski says:

      Maybe you should do some checking on people before you say things you know nothing about. He didn’t get where he is by being stupid. So but that in your cap and smoke it.

    • CCBoy says:

      Who is smarter:

      A. A professor who retires and receives monthly SOC SEC pension. Or

      B. The “dumbest” student who is a Multi-Billionaire and the current POTUS.

      Ocasio-Cortez is just plain DUMB. Just admit it.

  11. B J says:

    SEnd her back to waiting tables, Lord knows she hasn’t got the smarts for politics, but I guess that’s not stopped a lot of Dems, like Maxine or Nancy.

  12. L says:

    please gang…you all know Cortez is a “dork”….let the darling alone….she is extremely good for Republicans and a real looser for the Dems.

  13. N says:

    Communism makes as much sense as Ocasio-Cortez does! That’s why it fails every time it rears its ugly head! Liberalism is a mental deranged disorder. Pelosi, Waters.Vote Republican in Nov. to save our great country from being another Venezuela!

  14. J B says:

    We need to find out WHO gave her a degree and and stop this abuse of our education system Don’t know where this University is but High School graduates in my day (1963) had more intelligence than this woman. PUT HER BACK IN SHE IS NOT DONE YET.

  15. J Edward Clark says:

    Every day LOONEY LEFTIES, prove they are to some degree INSANE, they project, push their fantasies, act & talk as DYSFUNCTIONAL TEENS, no matter their physical age, ETC.
    SO sad there are so may of them!

  16. Jmac67 says:

    Just how stupid do you have to be before left leaning NYC voters will not vote for you.

  17. Carlos says:

    What we conservatives need to understand is the left doesn’t GAF how whacked she is, they’re just as whacked! They will vote for these polices no matter what and we’ll vote against them. Our only hope is enough swing voters who have zero party loyalty will be more fiscally prudent and vote their wallets. It’s how Trump won.

  18. Mark says:

    This is pure communist doctrine, Lenin and then Stalin dictated just such insanity and anyone who disagreed was slaughtered, any unforseen problems with bringing such in nsane ideas to pass was blamed on Nazis and subversive capitalists hiding among us….this stupid wastoid hoe would be slaughtered during Stalin’s purge she’d be passed around and gang raped then given a bullet to the head…

  19. B P says:

    She’s extremely ignorant of real economics. But making a fool of herself is the only way she knows how!

  20. Albert Witte says:

    I wonder how she got her professors at Boston College to pass her! She’s an idiot!

  21. Steveur says:

    This POS, breaks wind every time she opens her pie hole or in the words of of the Left to identify which hole the Upper Hole.

  22. john says:

    Slimy spic is a disgrace, the bitch would not make a pimple on a senators ass!

  23. W R says:

    That is what a liberal Democrat indoctranated education will get you. An expensive useless piece of paper.

  24. Joe says:

    Ideal material for the Crappy News Network. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is the front runner for the Ding Bat of Year Award. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren is in second place.

  25. Where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is buying this bread?

  26. The Texan says:

    I was right about at least one thing in my last comment. It wasn’t posted.

  27. Stubby says:

    All the dems who want all these feelgood programs like Medicare for all should increase what they pay in taxes and leave my money alone. You’ll see how fast they change their minds on that BS.

  28. As CLUE-LESS as she is, she MUST have obtained her “degree” through “PERFECT ATTENDANCE” ……Joe Biden brought up their “new” slogan, “DREGS of Society”, she IS CLEARLY one of THEM, just a DREG, ONLY “dregs” want to DESTROY a country through OUTRAGEOUSLY HIGH TAXES on the working class, have JOBS DISAPPEAR, INCREASE UN-employment, have LESS and LESS TAX money come into the TREASURY, instead of MORE TAX money by giving people WORK……AND then STILL DREAMING about what she is proposing…SHE makes HERSELF very CLEAR of HOW utterly CONFUSED she REALLY is AND NOBODY needs THAT in Government, NO she does NOT need to go BACK to School as she is CLEARLY one of THOSE who NEVER “learn” anything because their “brains” are SCATTERED, like obama’s, NO clear “thinking” possible with people LIKE THEM……!!!

    • Laurie Jenkins says:

      Amen!

    • Teresa says:

      The dregs Biden was talking about are those of us that someone else called Deplorables, another , clinging to our God,Guns etc…
      Frankly the Democratic Party’s Swung so far Left it’s not a 0.01% of American Values anymore.
      Its crazy, too stupid to function, that’s how & why Killary was able to steal it too. CSPAN is just people screwing citizens out of home, hearth And a life so they can live a better one and lord julia over us.

  29. James Termini says:

    She is clueless and delusional. The problem for society is that there are millions of intellectually challenged people who would vote for her.

  30. Thomas Goss says:

    She is dumber than a box of rocks, and as for her degree, hell you don’t have to have a brain these days to go to collage or get a degree. . Just look at all the morons running things, especially in our government. Only a complete moron would or did vote for this creature. SCREW her and ALL THE GOD DAM DEMOCRATS.

  31. joe bones says:

    She is delusional.

  32. Bob Lipori says:

    She may have a degree in Economics, but judging from her rhetoric she is dependent on the general public’s lack of that knowledge to get votes.
    Get educated people!

  33. Nancy says:

    She was dumb from the beginning and so were those who voted for her and her free everything.

  34. Michael Niuatoa says:

    It correct, to get a degree in any universities now a day is to be coming in t school . A student does not have to do any work read a book, no paper to write, the professor will give you a passing grad and a degree, no matter what you do. She has a degree in economic and got a job as a waitress in a small restaurant . What a deal, and now she wants to be in congress. Give name a break, I thought my party are loosing their mind.

  35. Jim says:

    If ignorance was bliss she would be divine…

  36. Mike H says:

    There are a lot of dumbasses in the government right now. But she takes the cake. Can you imagine if we have a bunch of them like her running the country?

  37. Rocco Trenkler says:

    I would question her having a degree in economics as it appears that she would not be able to maintain a simple budget of her own. Check her academic record, CNN, for validity and surprises.

  38. Rodger Shull says:

    ALL FALSE and FAKE, campagain promises, and when they DO NOT come true, she will use excuse after excuse an blame everyone else for her failure, A NO VOTE for cortez, sned her back to the bronx

  39. MJ says:

    At BU she was known as ” The M T Headed Play Thing “. No surprise here.

  40. Jerry Rockwell says:

    Our Federal Government takes in approximately 3.2 Trillion dollars per year. The costs of her programs are 40 Trillion over the next 10 years. That means if we spend every dollar on her programs that the Federal government takes in, it still leave us 8 trillion dollars short. So we can strip all of the military, social security, medicare, federal benefits, the house and senate funding, pay for all government workers, close all parks, remove all federal funding for schools, Shut down the FBI, CIA, national security, National Guard, border agents, Coast Guard, and the entire federal government and still be 8 trillion dollars short. but Ocacio Cortez to the rescue. She thinks she has 40 trillion dollars in her savings account. She took all of the zeros on her account and put them behind the $4 , (her actual balance), and came up with the exact amount we need. So relax people our nations top accountant Ocacio Cortez has this all figured out.

  41. Mike W says:

    She reminds me of the old joke about the person planning to go to the sun. When asked ” don’t you think you will just burn up and disintegrate/” Their reply was “We’re going at night – duh.”

  42. Ellie says:

    SHE IS JUST AN IDIOT LIKE ALL THE OTHERS THAT ARE AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  43. She could not answer that question because there is no answer!

  44. Mike Baumgartner says:

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez looks like a deer in the headlights, standing in the road of reality.
    Her only defense big brown eyes that cannot stop the traffic.

  45. Kara Wright says:

    She is the very reason the CNN’s rating are on the bottom. They keep this woman coming back and she makes no sense and is a waste of time. Who ever gave a degree was doing her no favor she is nothing more than a loser and a liar about all thing. There is only one group that would let her into a debate, that being the DEMS, so she would be used to make all debaters look better than her. I for one am time seeing her face.

    • Eioise Watts says:

      Ms. Cortez needs to get a refund. Anyone who would pay for an education and still be illiterate in her major subject has been cheated. Someone tell her the truth, please.

    • Jake says:

      Her knowledge of economics is embarrassing and just an example of the garbage being taught in these liberal colleges, by liberal extremist professors. Instead of teaching facts and basic fundamentals, students are getting liberal extremist views and opinions of what they think the world should be. If our kids are attending a college to obtain a degree and future, the professors who are paid good money to do so, need to stick to factual based learning. While young minds are being molded, these liberal professors know damn well it’s the perfect time to push their propaganda. Students look up to these educators, trusting and expecting them to give fair and unbiased education. Instead, they try to turn students into sheep, herd followers of their extreme liberal views and outright dangerous agendas. Our kids need facts, not opinions and the chance to make their own decisions. It’s truly embarrassing, listening to many recent college graduates try to discuss logic. They can tell you propaganda pushed by hate groups like ANTIFA , BLM but have no idea what Independence Day is all about. I often ask simple questions like (WHO DID WE GAIN OUR INDEPENDENCE FROM) (WHO IS VICE PRESIDENT) (IS THE EARTH’S CORE HOT OR COLD) . They know much more about black history than actual American history. History should be taught together, (ALL HISTORY) and wrapped up in a factual time line.

  46. EC says:

    Too late. She made a complete fool of herself long before the interview. Boston University should be embarrassed that she claims to have gotten her Economics degree from them.

    • Carl says:

      Isn’t Massachusettes a Democratically run state? She just falls in with the rest of the tax and spend Democrats up there. This is another reason why B.U. is called the backup university to Boston College.

  47. buckwheat says:

    She is nothing other than another Jezebel that should be put out to pasture. Hopefully the Republicans will be out in force to keep her out of office.

  48. Wills says:

    Since Ms Cortez received her degree in economics from Boston U. we can see why she would think this way. Massachusetts has been taxing people back to the stone age since 1620 and it continues until this day. During the late 1600’s they would tax your windows, per pane. If your dining table was over a certain width, you got taxed. They taxed how many rooms you had in your house…counting a small closet as a room. Now Ms Cortez wants to continue the tradition. Vote wisely this election, our very lives could depend on the outcome.

  49. TONY BELL says:

    This my friends is the reality that the liberal loonies are desperately trying to divert attention from. Truth can be derailed but it cannot be denied. Common sense is quickly coming back into vogue and justice is a great by-product of truth revealed. Our heavenly father is about his work and it clearly shows.

  50. Steven Serebrenik says:

    I wonder how many young people buy this TOTAL STUPIDITY?

    She would be much happier in Europe…SO GO!…PLEASE!

  51. She obviously has had a free ride for most of her life and thinks that money grows on trees. She exemplifies the failure of our school system, and proves that we need to take back not only our country, but also the school system. Stop giving teachers tenure, test them regularly and dump the stupid ones, of which there are many.

  52. Eric Granberg says:

    I fail to see where the problem is. She simply demonstrated that she has ability to not answer a question, by reframing it. Something EVERY politician does. Now, as far as the answer to the question goes, the answer is obviously… the taxpayer. Who, BTW, is the “same person” who benefits from have medicare for all. So quit acting like there is any mystery here.

  53. DORIS A BROWN says:

    This idiot needs to go back to school and get BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY.

  54. Oscar V Pearson says:

    This is the best the Democrats have to offer. What a disaster.

  55. Robert Burwell says:

    The gift that keeps on giving.

  56. Wills says:

    If anything Ms Cortez should stick with being a bartender she sure isn’t putting her “economics degree” to do any good. Of course now that she’s wearing $3,500 suits and $600 high heels her “economic” outlook seems very bright. Ah…love those campaign donations and being able to thwart the law.

  57. Fr Tom Martin says:

    I think she is an embarrassment for the school. But, we have a lot of educators that are not qualifiedh to teach . They to should have license revoked.

  58. Bill says:

    Ms. Ocasio-Cortez my wife and my combined income is approximately $60,000 please feel free to raise our taxes to $75,000; to pay for all of your wonderful proposals.

  59. FedUp says:

    She is such a blessing for conservatives!

  60. Maynard Altizer says:

    Maybe if she really did receive a degree in economics from BU, maybe “we” should ask her professors where she came up with this BS.

  61. D.T. Osborn says:

    This really isn’t news. She makes a fool of herself every time she talks to a camera!
