Were any conservatives actually offended by the Ocasio-Cortez dance video?

Were any conservatives actually offended by the Ocasio-Cortez dance video?

She also didn't let a moment go unanswered from Thursday, when she voted for Pelosi for speaker.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., just got into a heated Twitter debate with House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., over questions of tax policy - although Scalise cut things short after Twitter users began ridiculing him for almost dying during a mass shooting in 2017, even though his own supporters also posted insulting tweets.

The video was actually created for Boston University's Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground, which provides "programs, events and experiences to students designed to encourage creative exchange of ideas, thoughts, beliefs and opinions".

The daughter of hardscrabble working-class parents, the 29-year-old New Yorker was working toward making good on a campaign promise, making the US a Socialist State.

'We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, healthcare and education.

Now that's how you handle the haters.

And as it relates to the broader point Ocasio-Cortez is raising, which is, essentially, you know what I meant, so stop obsessing over a single data point, I would respond this way: Would she - or any Democrat - say the same about the White House's made-up fact that upwards of 4,000 known or suspected terrorists have attempted to enter the U.S. illegally through the southern border?

But if the video was meant to shame her, it backfired spectacularly.

When asked by presenter Anderson Cooper whether Mr Trump "is a racist", the 29-year-old left-wing Democratic lawmaker responded: "Yeah, yeah no question". "She then launched into a broadside against the Republican Party". "When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it's night and day". "Have a great weekend everyone", she tweeted along with the new video.

Ocasio-Cortez described herself as someone who really understands the frustrations of working people, even amid an economy that appears to be operating at record levels.

The spat took place on social media after Scalise responded with a witty reply to Ocasio-Cortez's progressive tax plan that she announced on national television. This Wednesday, she'll be joined by Smart Dating Academy founder Bela Gandhi to talk about dating and relating better in 2019. They take tax. You get the check, money gone. That's all that high taxes are: buying services that we are going to pay for regardless of what we pay in taxes, but approaching the endeavor with more purchasing power.

Ally Sheedy, the actor who played Allison Reynolds in The Breakfast Club, and whose dance moves Ocasio-Cortez was imitating, said she was: "pretty happy 'bout it", later writing "I love this #teamAOC".
