Ocasio-Cortez Has Epic Meltdown After Getting Fact-Checked

Infamous Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a meltdown of epic proportions on Monday after a few liberal leaning media outlets decided to do their jobs for once and fact-checked her and called her out for defending numerous falsehoods she has told.

Apparently it’s okay for the left to fact-check Trump, but it’s not okay to do so with their new darling.

The former bartender claimed on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday that people were too focused on being “factually” accurate, and not focused enough on being morally right, which drew widespread criticism.

That criticism carried over into news reports today from left-leaning publications, including The Washington Post and CNN, which published reports titled, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s very bad defense of her falsehoods” and “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s very slippery slope on facts,” respectively.

Even leftist Whoopi Goldberg slammed Ocasio-Cortez, advising her to “sit still for a minute and learn the job .. .before you start pooping on people and what they’ve done, you got to do something … ”

Ocasio-Cortez then suggested that it was not fair that she was, in her own mind, being held to the same standards as President Donald Trump.

Isn’t it just a tad hypocritical to call for the president to be held to a certain standard that you yourself are not willing to be held to?

Ocasio-Cortez has herself expressed aspirations to possibly one day run for president. How’s that going to work out for her if she can’t hack being criticized and held accountable for untruths she’s spoken in the past?

In all honesty, if she keeps up her current behavior, she’s not going to have a lengthy career in public service, and if we’re being honest, that could be really good news for America.
