If there is one thing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez excels at it is making a fool out of herself.
The New York congresswoman proved it once again.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blew her top in one embarrassing meltdown.
During an explosive House Oversight Committee hearing, woke environmentalist Raya Salter launched an unhinged rant directed at Republican Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins.
Salter began promoting the fiction about so-called “climate change” being a threat to the planet claiming that Higgins wanted to wreck the planet by supporting the American energy industry.
“You, sir. You, sir, from Louisiana,” Salter fumed. “Should search your heart and understand why the EPA knows that toxic petrochemical facilities are some of the most toxic polluting facilities in the world and are killing Black people throughout Louisiana. So my wish to be with you, to search your heart and ask your God what you are doing to the black people.
“The fossil fuel industry that owns your state is destroying the earth and the natural world. And that is a fact, sir,” Salter added.
Higgins shot back that Salter was spouting off nonsense with no real answers about so-called “climate change.”
“You know what you got, young lady? You got a lot of noise, but you got no answers,” Higgins responded.
Ocasio-Cortez then fired off a hysterical rant claiming that Higgins was supposedly rude to Salter and then baselessly claimed without citing any evidence that Higgins’ conduct in the hearing meant he could potentially abuse women behind closed doors.
“I wanted to address Ms. Salter directly. I just want you to know that in the 4 years that I’ve sat on this committee, I have never seen members of Congress — Republican or Democrat — disrespect a witness in the way that I have seen them disrespect you today. I do not care what party they are in. I’ve never seen anything like that. And for the gentleman from Louisiana, and the comfort that he felt in yelling at you like that, there’s more than one way to get a point across. Frankly, men who treat women like that in public, I fear how they treat them in private! We can be better than this. We don’t have to resort to yelling,” Ocasio-Cortez screeched.
Ocasio-Cortez then put on a “look at me” performance taking it upon herself to apologize to Salter.
“But because I don’t believe he will,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, “I want to apologize to you about the conduct of this committee and what we just witnessed. The people do not deserve to see that, and we deserve to put forward a better front.”
So-called “climate change” is a hoax that Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez cooked up to create an alleged crisis where the only solution is turning America into a socialist nation.
Democrats want to ban gas-powered cars, destroy the oil and natural gas industry, and the corporate media promotes the radical environmental agenda of banning hamburgers and forcing Americans to eat bugs.
Liberals like Ocasio-Cortez and Salter are used to being able to bully the Mitt Romneys and Adam Kinzingers of the world into silence by sliming them as “science deniers.”
But when Republicans fight back these environmental wackos lose it and melt down.
