Bartender Caught Lying Again: Ocasio-Cortez Now Claims She Was Kidding About World Ending in 12 Years …Too Bad There’s Video
Bartender Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is famous for her stupid statements. One of her most famous stupid lines, besides the garbage disposal video, is when she claimed the world was going to end in 12 years if America does not give up fossil fuels and buy more Chinese solar panels to heat our homes in the winter.
But on Sunday the daiquiri maker lashed out at Republicans for taking her words seriously. (We don’t) Ocasio-Cortez then attacked Republicans for having the social intelligence of a sea sponge to believe the nonsense coming out of her mouth.
This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.
Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.
But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows. https://t.co/pmkwrdeAnq

Ocasio first made the remarks in January at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City.
It was all caught on video.
Now she’s saying she was kidding but it didn’t sound that way.
Ocasio Cortez has repeated the claim several times and even made an insane video warning we only had 12 years to act.
Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline: 12 years left to cut emissions in half.
A #GreenNewDeal is our plan for a world and a future worth fighting for.
How did we get here?
What is at stake?
And where are we going?

But now she says she was just joking.
This is called gaslighting — Alexandria is telling an obvious lie.
But she doesn’t care.
Alexandria will make a good Democrat.
Paul Joseph Watson weighed in.
Sounded pretty literal when you said it, with a straight face and to an audience who reacted by clapping. No one was laughing. https://t.co/hAD45HJyOH
