Ocasio-Cortez Vows To Not Shake President Trump’s Hand
As we all know, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has remained in the public spotlight even before she took office and she hasn’t slowed down a bit.
Now, the self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist gave everyone something else to talk about to keep her in the public eye.
She told TMZ last week that she would be attending the State of the Union Address given by President Trump, but she will NOT be shaking his hand.
We got AOC on Capitol Hill Wednesday night — before Trump capitulated to Nancy Pelosi and delayed the State of the Union Address — and she emphasized it’s high time for POTUS to reopen the government and get federal workers their paychecks. Once he does that, she says she’ll be present in the House Chamber for his SOTU … but don’t expect her to extend her hand to him.
The reporter asked if she would be “front row, extending your hand” to which she replied, “You know, probably not my hand, but I’ll be there, and I’ll be present to see and listen to what’s going on.”
The reporter even makes an effort to flatter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by mentioning her initials AOC and how she’s often referred to in that way. Then he compares her to other notables who went by three letters as well, MLK, FDR, and RBG.
Watch the video below.
Recently, she told the BBC that there was “no question” that President Trump is a racist.
She said, “When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy, when you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it’s night and day.”
I can just imagine how the President will respond when he learns of this, “Who?…Who cares?”
