No one ever accused AOC of being an expert in anything.
Her ability for being completely tone-deaf to political reality is astounding.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t hide from this embarrassing scandal.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez started her career as a radical alternative to the mundane establishment of the Democrat Party.
She billed herself as an outsider who would be the champion of the people.
But she’s made it clear that she is anything but that.
And she had nowhere to hide after what just happened.
The Met Gala, an agglomeration of the most left-wing and elite of media, show business, and politics, was just recently held in New York.
And AOC was, predictably, invited to the affair by an undisclosed benefactor.
But the shock came with what she decided to wear to the Gala.
Instead of a toned down and humble attire, she decided to make a political statement for all to see.
Her dress, professionally designed and likely expensive, was covered with the words “Tax the Rich.”
The irony wasn’t lost on many.
Tickets to the Met Gala cost at least $30,000 per person.
Some companies spend $300,000 to book a table at the “prestigious” event.
People quickly went to work condemning AOC for her obviously hypocritical actions.
As the New York Post reports:
Actor Michael Rapaport shared a similar message, tweeting,
Custom TAX THE RICH dress while at ‘ the most elitist event in the world.’
‘@AOC will soon be rich with a ginormous production deal from somewhere & done with Politics, guarantee it,’ he wrote.
‘Stop treating ANY of these people like celebrities they are public servants that work for US.’
Unfortunately for Republicans, AOC’s supporters along with the vast majority of Democrats are not capable of seeing even the most blatant contradictions.
