3 Top AOC Embarrassments in 2021

3 Top AOC Embarrassments in 2021

(ReliableNews.org) – A recent study ranked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as 230th most effective Democrat representative — out of 240. She sponsored only 21 bills, with none of them receiving any action. Nevertheless, she found it necessary to draw attention to herself throughout 2021. Here’s a look back at three of her most embarrassing moments.

  1. AOC began the year claiming she had a close encounter with January 6 rioters and “thought [she] was going to die.” However, there’s one problem with that claim. She wasn’t at the US Capitol Building at that time. Instead, AOC’s encounter reportedly happened at her office, located in a different building that wasn’t breached during the Capitol Hill incident.

  1. In September, Democrats and Republicans alike criticized AOC for voting against providing funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system. The measure passed in the House with a vote of 420 to 9, with AOC and one other Democrat voting “present.”

Video captured AOC crying on the House floor shortly after her vote drawing further negative comments. The following day, she apologized to her constituents for abruptly withdrawing her support for the measure.

  1. AOC also created controversy when she wore a dress displaying the words “Tax The Rich” at New York’s Met Gala. Politicos and journalists quickly pointed out the hypocrisy of AOC displaying her politics at the upscale event attended by swarms of millionaires.
