‘Rock Star’ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Headlines MSNBC Green New Deal Town Hall at the–wait for it–Albert Einstein School of Medicine; Says, “No Future for Future Generations”

She’s no Einstein, she has a 23 percent approval rating, her Green New Deal was just voted down in the Senate with just a handful of support from Democrats–most of who opted to vote “present”–but on Friday night MSNBC is airing a Green New Deal town hall held in her district at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine headlined by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). A local reporter said she was given a ‘rock star’ reception by the crowd of several hundred in attendance.

Ocasio-Cortez, who has said there is only twelve years left to save the planet from climate change, carried her doom and gloom message to the town hall, saying, according to News 12 reporter Bronx Michelle Arezou Ross, “There will be no future for the Bronx, no future for future generations coming… if we don’t address this issue as urgently for the scale that is this problem.”

The town hall was taped Friday afternoon. The Einstein School explained in a promo for the event why they were chosen to  be the host.

 

“On March 29, 2019, Einstein’s new U.S. congressional representative, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, will come to campus to participate in a town hall-style event produced by cable news channel MSNBC. The primary topic for the program is the Green New Deal. Einstein was selected as the site not only because we are a major institution in Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s district, but because the MSNBC host for the event, Chris Hayes, was born at Montefiore’s Weiler Hospital.”

“The taping will begin at 2 p.m. on Friday in Robbins Auditorium. The event is “sold out,” but the program will air that night at 8 p.m. on MSNBC and will be available online.”

NBC/MSNBC’ Beth Fouhy posted a gushing promotional blurb for the town hall.

NY1 reporter Bobby Cuza posted a few brief reports on the town hall, including the ‘rock star’ reception and Ocasio-Cortez musing she could turned out of office by voters after only one term. Cuza also noted an anti-Trump Republican was part of the show.


For some reason, MSNBC’s promotional department thought this video of the line for the town hall was worth promoting.

AOC supporter and Justice Dems activist Waleed Shahid was there.
