WATCH AOC Brag About Her ‘Razor-Sharp BS Detector’
Freshman politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ego is enough to make even the cheesiest politician queazy. Between bragging about her failing ‘New Green Deal’ and her ability to rip jobs out from under her fellow New Yorkers – the former coffee barista talks more about herself than policies.
This latest… A doozy…
Ocasio-Cortez, following up on some of the previous lines of questioning, asked Cohen about documents pertaining to American Media’s hush money “catch-and-kill” practice, whether Trump had ever provided inflated assets to an insurance company or deflated his assets to reduce his tax bills. In his response, Cohen suggested that Trump had committed tax fraud, and that the answers would lie in a comparing Trump’s financial statements with his tax returns.
The computer scientist Matt Blaze wrote on Twitter: “Are we sure @AOC is a former bartender and not a former prosecutor? That was a pretty amazing line of questions today.”
Replying to Blaze, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “Thanks! Bartending + waitressing (especially in NYC) means you talk to 1000s of people over the years. Forces you to get great at reading people + hones a razor-sharp BS detector.
“Just goes to show that what some consider to be ‘unskilled labor’ can actually be anything but [winking emoji].”
Ocasio-Cortez asked Cohen about whether President Trump had intentionally devalued his real estate assets as a way to lower his tax bill. Cohen replied in the affirmative.
“What you do is, you deflate the value of the asset and then you put in a request to the tax department for a deduction,” Cohen explained when asked by the Democratic socialist how Trump went about reducing his tax burden.
“And would it help for the committee to obtain federal and state tax returns from the president and his company to address that discrepancy?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.
“I believe so,” Cohen replied.
I fail to see how AOC’s line of questioning accomplished anything other than to bring up Trump’s tax returns – yet again. Talk about beating a dead horse…
