Fun facts from Ocasio-Cortez: Americans eat 3 meals a day, prepared by immigrants, now they are scared and running back home
January 9, 2019 | Frieda Powers

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and suggested his rhetoric adversely affects local economies.

The new Congresswoman from New York ripped into the president’s address to the nation Tuesday in an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, blasting his immigration policies as “anti-American” and at one point, seeming to suggest people would not get meals because immigrants would not be available to cook for them.

Maddow questioned the self-described Democratic socialist about the effect of Trump “demonizing immigrants,” falsely stating that the president has made anti-immigration rhetoric the “core” of his presidency and “what he wants his presidency to mean.”

“I can tell you a very personal story and as many people know, I was working in restaurants just a year ago,” Ocasio-Cortez replied.

I took one for the team and watched in interview on the MSNBC website. Funny how she didn't go all bug-eyed and use her little tippy-top voice this time. Now several 2020 dem/com candidates are loving her idea.

So, the question is - who's eating my three prepared meals per day? 
Cui bono?

AOC's problem is that she sees the entire country as just more Westchester/Bronx. She ate meals prepared by illegals in her tiny slice of the world, so it's obvious to her that we all do. She could get by driving only "green" cars - occasionally commuting between the Bronx and her parents' home, presumably - so the entire country can, too. She's completely unaware of the existence of factories, farms, long-haul trucks, construction equipment and everything else that cannot run on batteries. In other words, she is completely unfamiliar with the real world, and her comments simply show how ignorant she truly is.
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

She did grow up with illegals as nannies, landscapers, cooks, etc because she came from privilege. She thinks every hick living in a recycled beer can in a holler in Kentucky has an illegal working for them.

She doesn't want to have a Green car. She wants a limo, a jet and a helicopter because she is a politician. She wants YOU to have a Green car.
Hahahahaha....No seriously. Who is the President?

I want to see her fly around in a Gulfstream powered solely by solar panels on the wings.

I keep wondering if Her popularity will wane with her constituents once they realize how much her ideas will hurt them.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Her popularity isn't with thinking types.

She might be familiar with those things, but she probably thinks that all farmhands are illegal aliens.

Having known several farmers, that's not even remotely close to being true.

I wonder if  she has ever been to the country or seen a working farm?

She doesn't know there are such things as tractors, balers and the like. Fire up the windmill, ma, I need to plow!

Ocasio-Cortez: Americans eat 3 meals a day, prepared by immigrants

Who can afford to eat out three times a day every day?  Does she not know how to cook?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

I can’t decide if AOC is Socialist Trump, or if Trump is Populist AOC.
