AOC Claims Those Who Believe Her 'Have Intelligence Of Sea Sponge'
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Sunday that she was joking around when she claimed the world was going to end in 12 years if we do not take serious action against Climate Change, an opinion she's been widely critisized for.
The progressive leftist mocked the Republicans for taking her seriously in a sarcastic tweet.
This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 12, 2019
Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.
But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows. https://t.co/pmkwrdeAnq
The tweet referrs to the original claim by AOC saying "I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change, and your biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II."
Here's another controversial mentioning of the 12 years period propelled repeatedly by AOC, which is again really complicating to Ocasio-Cortez’s recent suggestion about the world-ending claim being a joke.
