Can you IMAGINE the gall!
An article in the right wing UK newspaper Daily Mail, shows “Democrat firebrand” Alexandria Ocasio Cortez on the cover of this month’s Vanity Fair… and “in a lengthy photo-shoot” she DARES TO WEAR “an array of high-priced clothes” and SHOCKINGLY “compares herself to Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.”
The congresswoman- who is regularly branded a socialist for her far-left views – is photographed in current season silk suits from Aliette, Loewe, Carolina Herrera, and teeters on Christian Louboutin heels, all of which come with hefty price tags, in an array of poses which include playing with children in her native Bronx.
No mention of the fact that those are NOT HER REAL COTHES, that like anybody who is STYLED ON A MAGAZINE COVER, the clothes are pulled from designers for the photo shoot… I mean REALLY! The lengths people go to insult this woman!
And mind you, she looks FABULOUS.
In the interview she is coy about her political ambitions, saying she’d rather be a ‘mirror than a savior,’ but compares herself to Pelosi and Clinton.
‘It’s not an accident that, every cycle, the boogeyman of the Democrats is a woman. A couple of cycles ago, it was Pelosi. Then it was Hillary, and now it’s me,’ she says.
She also shares photos of her childhood in the Bronx, and denies that she and Pelosi have any problems despite the latter regularly slapping her and the rest of the ‘squad’ – a handful of progressive Demorat congresswomen – down.
AOC says that Pelosi’s dislike of her is a construct of the media.
‘Two powerful women coming from different perspectives, and there has to be a catfight,’ she said.
She also talks about the threats to her life that regularly receives:
‘I used to wake up in the morning and literally get a stack of pictures that were forwarded by Capitol police or FBI. Like, “These are the people who want to kill you today.”
‘It’s the epitome of being shaken to your core. Getting a phone call from the FBI saying, “Hey, don’t open your mail. They’re mailing out bombs.”‘
They became so intense that she questioned if she should run for re-election.
‘There have been many times, especially in the first six months, where I felt like I couldn’t do this, like I didn’t know if I was going to be able to run for reelection.
‘There was a time where the volume of threats had gotten so high that I didn’t even know if I was going to live to my next term,’ she said.
She poked fun at the ‘neo-Nazis’ who threaten her life, saying: ‘All these dudes look the same. I got to a point where I was like, “This isn’t even helpful because it’s all these neo-Nazis….”
‘I shouldn’t say that—there’s great diversity in the neo-Nazis.’
