On Tuesday night, after President Trump delivered his address to the nation regarding immigration, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) appeared on MSNBC with host Rachel Maddow, and proceeded to make some of the wildest statements of her neophyte career, including, “Every day immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than everyday Americans,” that illegal immigrants on the border “are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be,” that President Trump has a “proven track record of discrimination against anybody who’s really non-white in the United States, and that Trump assumed the office of the presidency with his “racist and violent rhetoric.”

Maddow began by asking Ocasio-Cortez to comment on Trump’s remarks, prompting the first of Ocasio-Cortez’s rants, as she bloviated:

I cannot tell you the amount of dysfunction that this president is advancing. We have now over 100 new members of this freshman class. I cannot even get laptops to my caseworkers in the Bronx and Queens so they can process the needs of our constituents. We cannot get their casework started because we cannot even get laptops in the hands of our district offices because the president has decided to hold the paychecks of everyday Americans hostage so that he can fulfill campaign, I don’t even want to call it a promise, a campaign fantasy that the vast majority of Americans disapprove of.

Forgetting that only two days ago she had been shown dismissing the value of facts, saying on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right,” Ocasio-Cortez continued:

And not only that, but in the actual address, there was falsehood after falsehood and we have to make sure that we get our facts straight. Every day immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than everyday Americans.

Then she added this comparison:

And not only that, but the women and children on that border that are trying to seek refuge and seek opportunity in the United States of America, with nothing but the shirt on their back, are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be.

Maddow asked if Ocasio-Cortez was dismayed by the “untrue things President Trump has said regarding immigration.” She queried, “What’s your take on the fact that the president’s been telling these same lies for years now, and not shying away from that at all?”

Ocasio-Cortez replied by accusing President Trump of being a long-time racist:

I think it’s unsurprising because even before he was elected President of the United States, he has a proven track record of discrimination against anybody who’s really non-white in the United States. He had been sued by the Nixon administration back in the day for not renting to black Americans, he has had controversy after controversy, so this is very consistent. It’s not just the continued lies throughout his administration but frankly it’s part of a very consistent pattern of his entire life.

She segued to her home area:

But I think it’s extremely important, you know I represent New York’s 14th congressional district, we are 50% immigrant. I represent the Bronx and Queens, Jackson Heights, over 200 languages are spoken in my district alone. We enjoy some of the highest rates of economic activity and the Bronx itself has had some of the highest rates of economic growth in all of New York City and that has been directly, directly correlated with our embrace of immigrants. New York City overall is an immigrant city and we enjoy a very large amount of economic and cultural prosperity as a result.

Maddow pressed, “What’s the consequence of having somebody as president who has made this core to his message and to what he wants his presidency to mean? What is the harm that’s caused by him talking this way, and using the sort of platform the way he has, even when he can’t get his policies passed?”

Ocasio-Cortez somehow assumed Americans eat out three times a day:

I can tell you a very personal story. As many people know, I was working in restaurants just a year ago, and when the president first assumed office with his racist and violent rhetoric, people started to send themselves home. And as we know, in restaurants, hospitality, every American eats if you can, if you’re lucky enough or we’re able to eat three times a day. And that means that we interact with the people who prepare our food three times a day. When those people start to go home, or rather go back to the countries which they originated from because many of them consider the United States their home, those places, they go into dysfunction.

Ocasio-Cortez then spoke of the need for immigrants to feel safe:

I remember one of our lead cooks brought himself to Mexico because he was so scared of the president’s rhetoric. We had an insane amount of dysfunction, we’re talking about local restaurants, we’re talking about local businesses, we’re talking about shuttering neighborhoods, and we’re talking about people feeling unsafe. And no one should feel unsafe in the United States of America.

Then it was time to attack ICE:

And that includes our amazing and beautiful and productive immigrant community. And moreover, the one thing that the president has not talked about is the fact that he has systematically engaged in the violation of international human rights on our border. He has separated children from their families: he talked about what happened the day after Christmas, on the day of Christmas, a child died in ICE custody. The president should not be asking for more money to an agency that has systematically violated human rights. The president should be really defending why we are funding such an agency at all because right now what we are seeing is death, right now what we are seeing is the violation of human rights, these children and these families are being held in what are called hieleras, which are basically freezing boxes that no person should be maintained in for any amount of time, let alone the amount of time they are being kept on, and moreover, even if you are anti-immigrant, in this country, the majority of immigrant overstays, the majority of the reason that people are undocumented is visa overstay. It’s not because people are crossing a border illegally. It is because of visa overstay which mind you, he’s talking about legal immigration — he’s trying to restrict every form of legal immigration there is in the United States.

And her conclusion, in which she reiterated that the immigrants at the border were more American than someone, although in this version that someone was President Trump:

He’s fighting against family reunification; he’s fighting against the diversity visa lottery, he’s fighting against almost every way that people can actually legally enter this country, forcing them to become undocumented, and then he’s trying to attack their undocumented status. This is systematic; it is wrong; and it’s anti-American. And again, those women and children trying to come here with nothing but the shirts on their back to create an opportunity and to provide for this nation, are acting more in an American tradition than this president is right now.

      The less they know, the more they talk, the more they are are shown to be stupid, the louder they shout; the more their ignorance is exposed, the more foul their language. How lucky can we get?

    . . . . Wow, she is so far out there it is difficult to address. So many lies. She should be immediately impeached on grounds of Behavior Unbecoming. She has a complete disconnect from reality. Boys and girls take note that she is the perfect example of what marijuana does to the human brain. She deserves to spend the rest of her miserable life in GITMO for High Treason. BTW: High Treason during Wartime is a Capital Offense.
    . . . . I am a retired Auto Technician that is living on Social Security Disability. I also served in the AF but my disability is not service connected. I am trying to raise the money for me to be able to move back to Texas. I was born there. I am concerned that I may not be able to survive another Wisconsin winter.

    I bet Mama Pelosi and Daddy Chuck are not happy about this. AOC stole the spotlight from them last night. Delicious! And then there’s the DemocRAT media…they are like flies on shit with her. Hilarious!

    I have a grest idea…….why doesn’t she take some of her $176k salary and get laptops so she can send people out and start signing all her useless constiuents up for healthcare, foodstamps and welfare. Come on buck tooth galore…..share the wealth. We’re all waiting breathlessly to see you put your money where your Godforsaken big, ugly mouth is

    Please! Will somebody PLEASE shut this stupid, silly woman up? She opens her mouth and lies pour out. She is loud, obnoxious, uneducated, incorrect, stupid, and flaming ignorant, especially with facts! This woman is the poster child for a civics test prior to being allowed to vote. She’s an absolute moron, and so are the people who voted for her. Can someone get rid of her, please? Toss her ass over the wall WHEN (not if!) it’s finished. Or send her back to waiting tables in her old neighborhood. What a lying piece of work.

      She SHOULD have taken Civics in HS! I think she’s one of these children that was passed through school because of age instead of being able to actually pass a test! She definitely doesn’t deserve her HS diploma… assuming she has one! And I agree, if she is any indication, we need to start giving a civics course to anyone who wants to be in Congress or files to become President. They need to have a passing knowledge of how our government is set up and how it works. Would be helpful if they have some knowledge of the Law as well.

    Just to make it clear AOC:
    Legal immigrants are welcome.
    Illegal immigrants are not.

    Folks, this is one dangerous person. She can cause a lot of problems with her lies. She knows just enough to be that dangerous. It is beginning to look a lot like 1930’s Germany here. All the disinformation is coming from the Statist/Socialist Democrats. Wake up people, our Republic is under attack from the leftists.

    Of course they will continue to air her stupidity. She’s a running joke and to stupid to figure it out. One of these days her little bubble will pop and she’ll see that the world will never revolve around her. I’m just wondering who did all her homework for her to pass government and economics classes. There’s zero chance she passed without cheating.

    Keep giving this bitch the podium and people will start to believe her. She thinks Socialism is the way to go. I hope she has the funds to support her agenda. Sit down and shut up will ya.

    OC’s hyperbole comes from emotion – whatever the emotion of the moment is, is how she speaks and this plays on the people who support her. Talking points with no facts – all sounds good but not possible. In a sane, common sense mind where facts matter, no sense can be made of what she says. Her words are just ‘rattle’ with no credible base – her socialist ideas have always failed when other peoples money ran out. She comes across to us as ‘noise’ but unfortunately many are listening to and supporting her ‘noise’.

    Do potential Congress people face a psychological evaluation before being allowed to stand for election ….If not perhaps now would be the time to do so.

    I am totally disgusted with the stupidity of this woman and the lies that she pushes. She is not smart enough to make this up on her own she has people in the background who are telling her what to say and she parrots it whithout even knowing what she is talking about. She should just go home while she has any honor left.
