This will never get old.

PHOTOG: “You can’t even run for president for another six years.”

AOC: “No, not for a long time. Thank God. Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment by threatening to run for president.”

It is good to see you now coming out as a strong advocate for equal rights. I look for your strong equal rights advocacy in the future.

It's funny to watch you defend this dumb broad.

That'll never get old.
 
Will Cortez eventually take over for the official position of right wing boogey person?

Amazing how much one freshman representative out of 435 gets so much attention from the right.
 
"Dumb broad" is no way for an equal rights advocate to talk. :naughty

When speaking of a "dumb broad", the term "dumb broad" is perfectly applicable.

Let us know when you lose your **** over terms like "white trash", or "old, angry white men". The latter is a threefer.

Wow! Doubling down on idiocy (stupid would be too kind) She's going to "force" the Republicans to pass the Equal Rights Amendment? Huh? Has she already forgotten a woman ran for President in 2016, and we've had at least two female VP candidates?

Kinda, yeah and you guys just ignore Trump. :roll:

Probably totally unaware. I do think AOC is the gift that will keep on giving, and as to "boogeyman", I happen to think she's just *this much* actually dangerous. She is a zealot, and zealots scare me.
Don't be fooled by the pretty wrapping. What's inside is kinda scary.

Trump = most powerful person in US government
Cortez = freshman rep who hasn't even been sworn in yet

She does?

I think its more that you guys need a scapegoat because you follow someone (Trump) who is more ignorant of how government works than her.

Good thing about Cortez? She is young enough to learn some things. Trump is set in his ways and doesn't care to learn anything.
 

So what? He's the dolt who other countries look at to represent the US on the world scene.

Cortez? No one from outside of the US cares.

LOL, you guys are so infected by TDS you're response to every post is "Yeah . . . but, Trump".

That woman might be an idiot who advocates for the thieving and mooching class IE socialist scum. But has it ever occurred to you that you might be doing for her what the mainstream media did for Trump? The mainstream media demonize Trump and propped him up to win the primary so he can get curb stomped by Clinton in the general election and it blew up in their face. Sometimes negative publicity is better than no publicity.

Scapegoat for what?

When Trump says something dumb I dont see you all excusing it because he is a political novice. He gets piled on. Why would you expect her to be treated any differently?

Please point out where I excuse anything Cortez says (or does).

This is the same dumbass leftist congress-wench that tried to say the Pentagon wasted $21T last year. And was serious as a heart attack. The only people stupid enough to believe such fairy tales, are, you guessed it...leftists.

Between her, Rep. Go-Nadler, and Pelosi, this is going to be a real knee slapper of a year. :)
 
I'm not sure I understand where she was kidding. I mean, messing up "he" with "any person" when dealing with a very old document is understandable. But no one is dumb enough to believe we haven't passed the ERA yet, right? Anyone have context/clarification?

You left out the part of her quote where she says its all a joke. It was just her and a few of her people just joking around without reading the constitution at the moment. Haven't you ever joked informally about something without doing a lot of research, and maybe got a few things wrong?

“No, not for a long time. Thank God. Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment by threatening to run for president.”
