Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told one lie about America that instantly blew up in her face
Ever since she arrived in Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became one of the leaders of the Democrat Party.
That hasn’t always worked out well for Ocasio-Cortez’s fellow party members.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told one lie about America that instantly blew up in her face.
Ocasio-Cortez is a socialist who wants to fundamentally change America into a country that looks more like Venezuela or Cuba.
Part of Ocasio-Cortez’s pitch to voters is that the system is rigged and unless Americans grant Democrats the power to impose a Soviet-style economy the nation’s capitalist system will crush the hopes and dreams of the poor and middle class.
During a recent committee hearing a video of Ocasio-Cortez complaining that in America it was impossible to “lift yourself up by your bootstrap” went viral.

But this video rocketed around social media for all the wrong reasons.
Americans quickly pointed out the big lie Ocasio-Cortez told.
Before coming to Congress, Ocasio-Cortez worked as a bartender in the Bronx.
Now she is one of the most powerful advisors to Bernie Sanders – her party’s frontrunner for the Presidential nomination.
In no other country could someone like Ocasio-Cortez ascend from tending bar to the highest levels of government.
Ocasio-Cortez’s own life story disproves her lie about America.
But Ocasio-Cortez lacks either the self awareness to notice it or is just a shameless liar who believes her audience will just accept whatever she says without asking any questions.
