One thing that people hate is when their own statements are used against them in a logical response that proves them to be wrong or too be out and out crazy.
The recent statement by AOC regarding the notion that the world was going to end in twelve years was especially silly because they have been saying that same thing for about forty years now and it never happens.
Sort of like how in Godfather 2 they reference a character in the movie who has been dying of the same heart attack for the past thirty years.
AOC just cannot help some of the ridiculous things that she is saying, I personally don’t think that she knows any better.
That being said, there’s nothing stopping someone from giving her a good poke to remind her of how silly some of her comments are.
Via Daily Caller:
Senator Lindsey Graham and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are beefing on Twitter over the government shutdown.
The tiff began when Graham issued a blistering statement critiquing Speaker Pelosi for canceling the State of the Union until the government shutdown ends. Graham said Pelosi’s tactic was a “new low” in American politics and “absurd, petty, and shameful.”
“Speaker Pelosi’s decision not to invite President Trump to deliver the State of the Union address sets a new low for American politics. The President – regardless of party – should have the opportunity to address the American people in the State of the Union address from the traditional venue of the U.S. House of Representatives. The State of the Union is a tradition which has been carried out during times of war and peace, turmoil and tranquility. It is an important piece of our history and government. Speaker Pelosi’s decision to ignore this long-standing American tradition is absurd, petty, and shameful. The judgement of history will not be kind.”
In response, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that Graham has failed to hold President Trump accountable for the government shutdown and other controversies.
Graham responded by needling AOC over recent comments that the world would end in twelve years due to global warming. “Let’s bury the hatchet,” Graham said, “and enjoy the next 12 years because they are going to be our last, right?”
