Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stuck her foot in her mouth again by comparing the caravan to this
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a human gaffe machine.
She’s admitted that she’s “not the expert on geopolitics.”
But what she just compared the crisis on the southern border to will make your jaw drop.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared Border Patrol using non-lethal means to counter a mob of illegals that were rushing the southern border to the Holocaust.
Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime.
It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.
It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.
It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.
And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America.
While she has misspoken several times in public, her most recent comments comparing the border crisis to the Holocaust take the cake.
Her tweet sparked immediate backlash.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tweeted at Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) that she should visit the U.S. Holocaust Museum to educate herself about the differences between Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany and the migrant caravan trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.
On Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez had tweeted that the migrants — whom she prefers to call “asylum-seekers,” though few would qualify — should receive the same consideration that Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany received during the Holocaust.
In response to Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Graham tweeted:
I recommend she take a tour of the Holocaust Museum in DC.
Might help her better understand the differences between the Holocaust and the caravan in Tijuana. https://t.co/05vCexiClE

Instead of admitting her mistake and apologizing, she doubled-down, saying:
“This administration has jailed children and violated human rights. Perhaps we should stop pretending that authoritarianism + violence is a historical event instead of a growing force.”
Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t even taken the oath of office yet and she sticks her foot in her mouth on a daily basis.
Just wait until she has to start actually voting on legislation.
