You won’t believe what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just compared to Trump’s border wall
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to prove that she is completely unqualified to serve in Congress by making outrageous statements on social media.
Even Nancy Pelosi and Democrat leadership are getting fed up with her antics.
And her latest jaw-dropping social media gaffe attacking President Trump’s wall will make you furious.
It’s no secret that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not a supporter of building the wall.
During a recent livestream, she revealed yet again her stunning lack of historical knowledge.
Ocasio-Cortez compared Trump’s border wall to the Berlin Wall during the Cold War.

The Daily Mail reports:
Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared President Donald Trump’s long-promised border wall to the Berlin Wall during a livestream for her supporters on Friday, complaining about the level of public scrutiny her celebrity has generated.
‘No matter how you feel about the wall, I think it’s a moral abomination,’ the 29-year-old New York Democrat said. ‘I think it’s like the Berlin Wall.’
The Berlin Wall stood from 1961 to 1989 as a Soviet-manned barrier between East and West Berlin, and came to symbolize the Cold War ‘Iron Curtain’ that separated communist Eastern European countries from the democratic West.
Its purpose was to keep people in East Berlin, the city’s communist sector, from fleeing to West Berlin.
Ocasio-Cortez must have missed a few history classes in either high school or college.
The Berlin Wall was constructed by the Soviet Union in order to prevent men and women from fleeing Communism.
The purpose of the wall on the southern border is to stop the tidal wave of illegal immigration that is infiltrating our country.
Citizens of both the United States and Mexico will be able to legally cross the border with ease.
To compare the two walls is nonsense.
The new Congresswoman has developed a habit of comparing monumental historical events to aid her arguments.
Recently, she compared the fight against climate change to “Our generation’s WWII.”
Democrats have become increasingly frustrated with the Democratic-Socialist.
Her rhetoric and public mistakes have given Republicans a great deal of ammunition to use against them.
Democrats may even redraw her district in 2020 so that she won’t be re-elected.
Her career in Congress could be over before she knows it.
