Note: This “Moore to the Point” commentary aired on NewsTalkSTL on Friday, July 15th. Below is the audio.
You’ve probably heard the expression, “She can give it away but she can’t take.” This principle was demonstrated by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, our favorite Congresswoman.
Sandy from the Bronx, was filmed by a comedian (or maybe a provocateur) on Wednesday making an obnoxious comment regarding her anatomy. She responded by walking up to the camera, flashing the peace sign, and then he left.
Normally, I would chalk it up as a random dude looking for his 15 second of viral fame. AOC, like she is, reacted furiously, lamenting the fact that her institution (the United States Congress, arguably the strongest legislative body on Earth) “allows this to happen.”
The Congresswoman did not elaborate on what she would do to stop such encounters. But bear in mind that it was last Friday when she mocked Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s being chased from a DC restaurant.
It’s democracy at work when she confronts public servants that are not in her favor. It’s usually her who is on the receiving side. It’s not so.
