By Daily Wire. Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her minions in the media clipped a 5-minute video of a House Oversight and Reform Committee on Wednesday which quickly went viral — but excluded a follow-up response that put a damper on Ocasio-Cortez’s pontificating.
In a video shared on Twitter by actor James Corden, and retweeted by Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old politician used the opportunity at the hearing to promote her anti-establishment brand.
Ocasio-Cortez claimed that it was “already super legal, as we’ve seen, for me to be a pretty bad guy,” as she questioned several people about what she was allowed to do with her “special-interest, dark-money-funded campaign” money.
The video was retweeted over 350,000 times in under 24 hours and was viewed over 19 million times.

The video conveniently did not include the follow-up response by IFS Chairman Bradley A. Smith, who was asked by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) to correct the record on a line of misleading questioning by Ocasio-Cortez.

White House blasts Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal: ‘Central planning disaster’
By The Hill. The White House lambasted the Green New Deal climate resolution spearheaded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) this week slamming it as a “central planning disaster” and “a roadmap to destroy the American Economy.”
White House spokesperson Judd Deere said in a statement to The Hill that President Trump “has vowed that America would never be socialist, and this administration will fight this central planning disaster,” adding that the plan was a “roadmap to destroy the American Economy.”
Politico first reported Deere’s comments regarding the resolution.
Ocasio-Cortez introduced a resolution on Thursday that would push the U.S. to reduce carbon emissions through the economy.
The proposal has a goal of creating millions of “good, high-wage jobs” by working toward net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. (Read more from “White House blasts Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal: ‘Central planning disaster'” HERE)
