Ocasio-Cortez: I give 'zero' f---s about pushback from other Democrats
By Aris Folley - 01/22/19 08:10 AM EST

Freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) in an interview late Monday said she gives "zero" f---s about criticism she’s received from members of her own party.

“Now, congresswoman, for you and other freshmen members of Congress, you're getting a fair amount of pushback from even members of your own party saying ‘wait your turn, go slow, don't ask for so much so fast right now, you're new, wait your turn for everything and don't make waves,'" late-night host Stephen Colbert said to the rising progressive star on CBS's "The Late Show."

“I want to ask this question in a respectful manner, knowing also that you're from Queens, so you will understand this question,” he continued.

“And the BX,” Ocasio-Cortez, who is also from the Bronx, laughingly injected.

“On a scale from zero to some, how many f---s do you give?”

After taking a moment to deliberate, Ocasio-Cortez reached into her side and pulled out her hand to make a circle, saying: “I think it’s zero.”

“That’s my thought!” Colbert exclaimed.

She'll give a whole lot of effs about it when she runs in her safe Rat seat and is Primaried and the party gives her ZERO cash.

She may give zero F's  and with that overbite and her set of chompers I hope the same is true when it comes to blowjobs.

Keeping it classy, as always.
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.

The right wing made her famous just like I said they would. She's a rock star on the left now. She isn't going anywhere for a long time.

Good. Her candor is refreshing. I’m tired of the rats pretending they stand for things they don’t.

Yeah. She is such a rock star that her own party is telling her to sit down and shut up.

The Democrat Party has long been home to vacuous blowhards and duplicitous schemers alike. It is a place where celebrities and power-seekers alike can loudly claim to care for the poor and down-trodden and yet live like royalty, where mere feelings trump truth, where personal accountability is negated by the privilege of accusation, and where one may yet thrive without the necessity of possessing virtue or having to produce anything of lasting value.

Journalism now is a bunch of millennial social justice activists playing dress-up. They’re not a profession or an industry. They don’t report. They don’t know anything. And they don’t serve the public.

And what a hypocrite this one is. For someone who couldn't afford an apartment now appearing on the cover of Hollywood Reporter and other venues in expensive designer clothes. This ignoramus is quite prepared to take everything from you while she lives in luxury.

 Her youthful Idealism, along with her naivety Is going to run into problems with even some of the realist in her own party.  Right now, her ideas have not gone through the whole ringer of a debate.

In the event her Green New Deal or Medicare for All gets put out in the public arena and she finds real opposition to both, I have the feeling that she’s not going to be able to adapt very well to the rejection. I think her true colors will come out at that point
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

And that will get worse when she runs into real opposition. It’s our nature to believe that whatever we’re for, everybody else should be, too. Being a millennial, especially being from the university system, they’re not used to alternative viewpoints and opposition

I agree, but it won't happen anytime soon since she is adulated by the media. When her ideas are rejected- look out!

Oh yeah. When you watch her in interviews, there’s a little bit of that already

This is what conservatives should focus on.  Forget about her outfit or whether or not she uses Uber.

 Her disastrous ideas should be confronted head on.

She's completely a creation of the left and the media.  the "right wing" had nothing to do with making her famous.

I'm surprised given your comments on here in the past you're not fully 100% behind everything she says.
