Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Calls Sarah Sanders a Liar

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Calls Sarah Sanders a Liar

We enfranchised the country.

The online drama popped off when Huckabee mocked Ocasio-Cortez as "looney" for comparing her election to the moon landing. "She's much better at it", the soon-to-be sworn in lawmaker from Queens, New York, told Huckabee via Twitter.

Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez also expressed frustration that Congress can offer cheap health care benefits to its own members yet "would deny other people affordability that they themselves enjoy". We did it when no one else thought that we could.

He claimed Ocasio-Cortez' wording was wrong because he win was "looney" whereas the moon landing was "lunar". Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won a seat in the Bronx last month, sees her victory as "a watershed moment in world history akin to landing on the moon". We've been done it before, and can do it again.

Along with Sanders will be founder and author Bill McKibben; actress and activist Shailene Woodley; CNN host Van Jones; Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; Earth Guardians Youth Director Xiuhtezcatl Martinez; Union of Concerned Scientists Director of Climate Science Dr. Brenda Ekwurzel; Dale Ross, mayor of Georgetown, Texas; and Dr. Camilla Bausch, president of Ecologic Institute.

"If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress - uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House", Ocasio-Cortez said - forgetting that the three branches of government are actually the executive, legislative and judiciary branches.

Also, you haven't been a Governor of any state for 10+ years now.

She then complained later in the Twitter thread of being ganged up on.

Just a few hours later, Ocasio-Cortez responded to the former governor to clarify her statement in relation to her proposed plan. "Don't y'all have jobs to do?" she asked, rhetorically.
