RNC Releases Hilarious Mashup of Ocasio-Cortez and Billy Madison’s Principal (VIDEO)
The Republican National Committee released a hilarious new ad taking aim at the Democratic Party’s rising Socialist star, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The ad, titled “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: The Future of the Democratic Party,” is a mashup of the candidate and the scene in Billy Madison where the high school principal is responding in disgust to a ridiculous answer to a question. The Democratic Socialist candidate was recently called the “future of the party” by DNC Chairman Tom Perez.
“Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul,” the principal says in the famous scene, which is sprinkled between the incoherent ramblings of Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Socialist who won the Democratic Party nomination in New York’s 14th congressional district, has become serious fodder for jokes since being thrust into the national spotlight without well-rounded knowledge of issues she is expected to be knowledgeable about.
The new ad takes aim squarely at her missteps, including outright lying about the military budget and her confusion over a simple question about Nancy Pelosi.
