AOC Mocks Reporter’s Salary, Goes To Bat For Elizabeth Warren
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Stalin (D-NY) mocked a reporter who dared to publish the fact that Elizabeth Warren made almost $700 per hour in legal services during her lucrative law career.
That’s right. Publish a story that AOC doesn’t like, or that tries to poke holes in the liberal narrative, and she will come after you on social media with a vengeance.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) ripped a media report Thursday on the past lucrative legal career of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and mocked a reporter’s salary in the process.
Ocasio-Cortez went to bat for Warren after the 2020 presidential candidate posted a list of 56 cases on her campaign website that she worked on during her career as a law professor. The Washington Post reported Warren made up to $675 an hour while consulting for committees representing both claimants and creditors in asbestos-related bankruptcy cases. She also worked for several corporate clients.
CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski linked to the Post report, to which Ocasio-Cortez sarcastically responded, “BREAKING NEWS: Lady Had A Job, Got Paid More Than Me. Nice work. Now do the amount of Wall Street, Big Pharma, & Fossil Fuel [money] presidential candidates accepted over their careers & how much they’re taking now.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s aggressive tone was noteworthy, given she’s a democratic socialist who frequently speaks out against income inequality and calls for high marginal tax rates on the nation’s wealthiest.
BREAKING NEWS: Lady Had A Job, Got Paid More Than Me
Nice work. Now do the amount of Wall Street, Big Pharma, & Fossil Fuel presidential candidates accepted over their careers & how much they’re taking now.
While teaching, Elizabeth Warren worked on more than 50 legal matters, charging as much as $675 an hour https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/while-teaching-elizabeth-warren-worked-on-more-than-50-legal-matters-charging-as-much-as-675-an-hour/2019/05/22/9ce56840-7ce0-11e9-8bb7-0fc796cf2ec0_story.html …
Stay classy, AOC.
Also this week, the millennial socialist looks to be getting ready to endorse Warren for president. Although no official announcement has been made, the two women shot a new video together that was just posted to Warren’s YouTube account.
In the hilariously awkward video that you really have to see to believe, the two women discuss everything from the ending of ‘Game of Thrones’ to why they really, really hate Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin.
Take a look:
One candidate whom Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t appear ready to support: Former vice president and current frontrunner Joe Biden. She said she would be “hard-pressed” to support his bid for the nomination.
