Democratic Socialist and New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the utter gall to call outgoing White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly a coward. Wow, strong words from a communist who is dishonest and has never served her country. She demanded (like she has any room to) that Kelly apologize to Rep. Frederica Wilson over their argument last year. It’s never going to happen.
“John Kelly was straight up exposed for lying about @RepWilson in comments aimed at discrediting her,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote via Twitter. “He absolutely owes her an apology, and his refusal to do so isn’t a sign of strength – it’s cowardice,” she added. Kelly is the very antithesis of a coward. Ocasio-Cortez wouldn’t know true strength if it trout-smacked her across the face.

I remember the dust-up between Kelly and Wilson. She had it coming and so much more. Wilson “overheard” comments made by Trump to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, a U.S. soldier who was killed during a mission in Niger. Trump said on the call that Johnson “knew what he was getting into.” Wilson used that out of context to attack Trump and make him into an unsympathetic monster. Nothing could have been further from the truth.
Kelly overheard that call and proceeded to say that Wilson was an “empty barrel” and was taking the president out of context. He was right to defend President Trump over this smear. Kelly was a former Four Star General in the Marine Corps. Cowards don’t make it that far but they do end up as clueless politicians. And Ocasio-Cortez showed what a coward she herself is by waiting for Kelly to announce he would be leaving his position as White House chief of staff. Typical.
That’s not all this woman gets wrong or is clueless over. She has literally become a walking, talking meme. From I Love My Freedom:
Over the weekend, Ocasio-Cortez misquoted the U.S. Constitution and falsely claimed that the age restriction to run for president only applies to men.
“You can’t even run for president for another six years,” the photographer said, noting that she had just turned 29-years-old.
“No, not for a long time. Thank God,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35,” she falsely claimed.
Article II Section I of the U.S. Constitution explicitly states “any person,” not “he,” as she claimed.
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.
Last week, the 29-year-old socialist threatened to subpoena Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, for trolling her with a meme on social media.
Last week, two far-left outlets brutally fact-checked Ocasio-Cortez for citing a highly misleading report to claim that Pentagon accounting errors totaled $21 trillion.
She argued that the $21 trillion could pay a major chunk of the “Medicare for all” plan she supports, which would cost roughly $32 trillion.
This is the kind of airhead, misinformed genius that the left idolizes. She’s not worthy of polishing the shoes of someone like John Kelly. And demanding he apologize to someone who basically lied and is a Marxist? Don’t make us laugh.
