Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announces 'self-care' break before congressional session even starts

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needs a break.

The Bronx-bred democratic socialist heading into her freshman term in the House of Representatives announced Monday she’s taking some time off to take care of herself before she officially starts her new job — and she’s taking her supporters along for the ride.

“I’m taking a few days to take care of myself before what is sure to be an eventful term,” the incoming New York congresswoman tweeted.

“For working people, immigrants, & the poor, self-care is political — not because we want it to be, but bc of the inevitable shaming of someone doing a face mask while financially stressed. So I’ve decided to take others along with me on IG as I learn what self-care even means and why it’s important.”

All those interviews that exposed her ignorance and stupidity must have been exhausting. I guess she thinks everyone is on tenterhooks awaiting her next announcement about herself.

Too late.

... 'I am starting a week of self-care where I am taking the week off and taking care of me. I don't know how to do that though, so I would appreciate any and all self-care tips,' she said.

The 29-year-old Democratic Socialist revealed that she drove to 'the middle of nowhere' in upstate New York with books, lavender oil and music, and later took to Twitter to politicize her decision for time off.  ...

And by "books," we mean some serious dope.

She doesn't even know how to run her own life but she's damned certain she knows how to run yours.

Typical leftest.

I'll be glad when she gets of  her mental health break.

Her rantings and ravings amuse the heck out of me.
