Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is only 29, and she did only graduate from Boston University, majoring in international relations and economics. So it makes sense that she’s still amazing by things like — dirt.
In a recent video posted on social media, the Democratic socialist from New York is seen looking at her small plot in a community garden in Washington, D.C. And we swear that we’ve transcribed her comments faithfully.
“I just checked on my community garden slot and I was so nervous because I was in New York for two weeks in recess. Look!” she says as the camera pans to leafy plants. “Oh. My. God! Look at this!” she gasps.
“It’s like — look at the collard greens! Look at the dahlias! Oh my God! I have to trim all of these back for smoothies.
“I. Am. Shook! Look, like, honestly, gardening — food, that comes out of dirt. Like, it’s magic.”
The internet, as it is wont to do, had some fun with the new lawmaker.
“Look, I don’t want to make fun of the brainless, but AOC is without question the most idiotic person ever to (dis)grace the halls of Congress,” Brent Bozell, founder and president of Media Research Center, wrote on Twitter.

Perhaps AOC thought vegetables were manufactured at a Ford plant.

We can only blame the education system. This person managed to go to college… The system is broken.
