Fiery, intense, outspoken, and controversial are just a few of the adjectives that describe freshman congressional representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Does she represent a new advantage for the Democrats, or, instead, is she dangerous for the party?
The popularity fueled by social media sites like Twitter, negative or positive, propels politicians like Trump and Ocasio-Cortez into the stratosphere of vast recognition by utilizing these huge platforms. It makes you wonder where we all would be right now if Twitter had been around in the 1920s or 1930s.
I was able to sit down with Ocasio-Cortez for an interview.
Word Wizard: "Thanks for your time. How much impact has Twitter had on your success?"
Ocasio-Cortez: "Zero impact, I think...maybe sped things up a little, but one way or another, people would realize how important and factual my words are."
WW: "What did you see at the Mexican border?"
AOC: "People forced to live in filth, and starvation, I thought I was back in Queens. Is Bill de Blasio running Border Patrol? I saw rats, people eating rats, rats eating people, people drinking urine...it was a disgrace."
WW: "How would you fix it?"
AOC: "Open every Trump property to them."
WW: "Do you believe America is great again?"
AOC: "Are you crazy? When was it great? We have to fight wars to create countries. What is that? We had to fight the War of 1812 to get the Declaration of Independence written."
WW: "How is your relationship with Speaker Pelosi?"
AOC: "I'm 'bout to bitch-slap her."
WW: "Which Democrat running for president in 2020 do you support?"
AOC: "All of them. My squad is about to write a bill that will create a Group President...until I'm elected, of course."
WW: "Some think your divisive rhetoric is only helping Trump get reelected. Do you think that's true?"
AOC: "That is crazy! People loved my ideas, thoughts, and advice when I was a bartender. The drunks trusted me and I was always right. The country needs me and my wisdom."
WW: "Any closing thoughts?"
AOC: "Green New Deal, free everything for everybody, close prisons, and open borders...my new Mod Squad is steppin' out for the people, all the people. Mod Squad will be Group President and Antifa will be Vice President."
