Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Blasts Republicans For Hypocrisy On Profanity


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter on Saturday to defend her fellow newly-elected Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib from Republican criticism after Tlaib used a vulgarity in a speech in reference to Donald Trump.

To be specific Tlaib told a crowd “We’re gonna impeach the motherf*cker” and Republicans are currently raising a ruckus over the remark despite the fact that the subject of the comment, and current President of these United States, Donald Trump, has said much worse.

AOC was having nothing of it, however, and quickly called the Republicans out on their blatant hypocrisy.

The Republican’s pearl-clutching over civility is obviously disingenuous as they miraculously only care about profanity when it’s coming from their political opponents.

When their party’s president has said and done much worse, famously bragging about grabbing women “by the p*ssy” among many other profanities, they are conspicuously silent. However when a Democrat who also happens to be a woman and a person of color uses a swear word they start moralizing and pretending to be truly outraged in order to score some cheap political points.

As usual the public had AOC’s back and on Twitter someone made a supercut of some of the many times Trump has publicly used profanity.

Further adding to Republican hypocrisy on the issue is the fact that Trump’s foul-mouthed utterances aren’t a thing of the past. In fact, according to reporting by the Wall Street Journal, via The Hill, Donald was swearing up a storm just yesterday:

Trump began Friday’s heated closed-door negotiations with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and newly minted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with a 15-minute, profanity-laced rant.

Republicans have been melting down over Ocasio-Cortez since before she was elected. She seems to threaten them like few other politicians in recent memory and the fact that she’s so much more agile than them at playing the political game makes conservatives every attempt to attack and smear her a joy to behold because it’s never more than a prelude to their own smackdown.

Recently Ocasio-Cortez’s hysterical critics have made claims about her past and, most scandalously of all, unearthed a college video of her….dancing happily.

The latter attack blew up spectacularly as they were roasted across the entire internet for their idiocy and only managed to make their opponent seem even more relatable and down to earth.

Nevertheless conservatives are so irritated/terrified/in love with Ocasio-Cortez that they remain tireless in their efforts to belittle, insult, and neg her.

Luckily for us AOC remains much more skilled at swatting their insults aside than they are at lobbing them.

She’s rubber, they’re glue.
