Ocasio-Cortez: I Didn't 'Expect' Republicans 'To Make Total Fools Of Themselves' About Green New Deal

As the Green New Deal continues to implode and fail, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is lashing out at Republicans, as documented by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
This is nothing new and typical behavior to be expected from Democrats and socialists. Whenever the left isn’t getting their way, they resort to going after their political adversaries.

A Closer Look at AOC’s Latest Attack on Republicans

Earlier this week, the GOP initiated a vote on the Green New Deal. As to be expected, Republicans unanimously voted against the proposal, while Democrats overwhelmingly voted present. To make matters even worse for Ocasio-Cortez, three Democrats sided with Republicans and voted against the controversial Green New Deal. Amidst the bill’s failure to gain traction and votes, Democrats are said to be moving on from the Green New Deal.
As the main proponent behind the proposal, this news did not sit well with Ocasio-Cortez. Therefore, she lashed out at the GOP on Friday during an MSNBC town hall.
When asked about conservative commentary on the Green New Deal, Ocasio-Cortez responded with the following statements:

“It is next level. I didn’t expect them to make total fools of themselves. Frankly, I expected a little more nuance and I expected a little more concerned trolling.”

More on AOC’s Remarks

Quite frankly, it’s very interesting that Ocasio-Cortez would talk about Republicans making “total fools of themselves.” The GOP could easily counter and say that Democrats are the ones who made total fools of themselves by putting forth legislation as ridiculous as the Green New Deal.
As much as Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t like it, her Green New Deal was bound to fail even before its inception. There was no way any Republican would ever support it and even more moderate-leaning Democrats came out against the Green New Deal. Conservatives haven’t made fools of themselves by voting against and speaking out against far-left, socialist legislation.
The only person who made a fool of herself was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when she put forth the Green New Deal and actually expected it to succeed in Congress.
