So on Monday evening, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez discovered this sleek, new piece of modern technology called a garbage disposal, something she was apparently unaware of before and the video of this discovery is going viral.
Although it’s not for the reasons she probably hoped. If you thought this gal was a bit dopey before, wait until you get a load of this.
Hey, the good news is, she finally has a place to put the Green New Deal.
Yes, Ocasio-Cortez stumbled upon that ubiquitous and essential element of American households which was banned in New York City from the 1970s until 1997 but can be found in most homes around America, and her reaction, which she posted on Instagram, was typically parochial: ““This DC apartment is bougie and has things I’ve never seen before. Like what is a garbage disposal really for? Is it better or worse than throwing something in the garbage? More importantly why is it so loud and yelling at me?”

Ocasio-Cortez posted on Instagram: “Okay everyone, I need your help because I just moved into this apartment a few months ago and I flipped this switch and it made that noise and it scared the daylights out of me … I am told this is a garbage disposal, I’ve never seen a garbage disposal; I’ve never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying; I don’t know what to use it for or what its purpose is. Like food scraps? Like Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know.”
The garbage disposal was invented in 1927. Used by virtually every American household outside of NYC. https://t.co/4UNktmxxUd

Bless her heart.
This is just more proof of how out of touch with the rest of America both AOC and New York City really are, which makes you wonder why folks who live in big cities and think we should junk the electoral college and allow them to call all the shots politically.
Think that’s a hard pass from this corner of the Internet right here.
It’s embarrassing to see AOC get on social media and do this kind of stuff. You know, attempting to pass herself off as a relatable figure and all. When any politician does this it seems contrived and ridiculous.
Just do your job. It’s simple.
