Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is known for saying stupid things.
But this time, she may have finally crossed a major red line.
What she said about Fox News instantly blew up in her face.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is perhaps the most ignorant member of Congress.
So it shouldn’t come as any surprise to see her make outrageous comments.
Over the past four months, she’s done exactly that, attacking Christians, Trump supporters, and gun owners for some of the dumbest reasons imaginable.
And now she’s set her sights on the southern border with Mexico.
Breitbart reports, “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Thursday mocked Fox News correspondent Lawrence Jones for wearing a bulletproof vest while reporting from a portion of U.S. Southern border where a shooting had recently occurred.”
You heard that right.
Ocasio-Cortez is mocking a Fox News correspondent for wearing a bulletproof vest in one of the most dangerous parts of America.
And the reason he even had to wear the vest in the first place is because left-wing politicians like herself have refused to address the crisis on the southern border.
Rather than work with President Trump to secure the border and end the violence, Ocasio-Cortez is instead wasting her time mocking people on social media.
“Does ‘live from the border’ mean Party City?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted with photos of Jones in the green vest provided by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). “Fox is really out here doing the most on a budget to make the border look more dangerous than it is,” the freshman Congresswoman added.
There’s just one problem with her ridiculous narrative.
After Ocasio-Cortez’s post, Lawrence Jones showed up on the Fox News Channel, telling Sean Hannity that CBP agents requested that he wear the bulletproof vest to keep him safe because “just two months ago, there was a shooting.”
Jones said the agents had told him: “We control this side of the border, but the cartel controls the other side of the border. There’s been gun fights.”
Not only do politicians completely reject the violent reality on the southern border, they’re resorting to attacking those who are experiencing the crisis firsthand on a daily basis.
Ocasio-Cortez has never even been to the southern border.
Perhaps she should take Lawrence up on his offer to take her down there so she can see for herself just how horrible the situation has become.
“Congresswoman, I’m sure the Border Patrol Laredo Sector, would be happy to give you a full briefing on the crisis here on the border. How about you join me & see for yourself. We just capture 8 illegals 3 minutes ago. Thankfully they weren’t armed like the others 2 days ago,” Lawrence tweeted back at her.
Lawrence shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for Ocasio-Cortez to take him up on his offer.
She’s too busy not doing her job in Washington, instead mocking people from the comfort of her Twitter account.
