Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her minions in the media clipped a 5-minute video of a House Oversight and Reform Committee on Wednesday which quickly went viral — but excluded a follow-up response that put a damper on Ocasio-Cortez’s pontificating.

In a video shared on Twitter by actor James Corden, and retweeted by Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old politician used the opportunity at the hearing to promote her anti-establishment brand.

Ocasio-Cortez claimed that it was “already super legal, as we’ve seen, for me to be a pretty bad guy,” as she questioned several people about what she was allowed to do with her “special-interest, dark-money-funded campaign” money.

The video was retweeted over 350,000 times in under 24 hours and was viewed over 19 million times.

The video conveniently did not include the follow-up response by IFS Chairman Bradley A. Smith, who was asked by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) to correct the record on a line of misleading questioning by Ocasio-Cortez.

Below is Smith’s response to Ocasio-Cortez:

There are a couple things for example that would not be, she asked if there is anything that could apply here? There are things that do not apply here. For example, the whole point of the article she held up that I wrote was that you cannot use your campaign funds to make those payments that would be illegal personal use. Campaign funds are not dark money. They are totally disclosed so they are not dark money.

It’s worth noting be the way that dark money constituted by $1.7 billion, I believe that figure is incorrect by factor of about 500%. Dark money constitutes 2% to 4% of total spending in U.S. elections and has always been involved in U.S. elections. Those are just a couple of points.

I did kind of chuckle at the question is it possible, asked of us, that these influences are, this money is influencing the questioning here. To that, I’d say that is something you have to ask yourselves, if you are being influenced, then see what you think. If you are then you might question yourselves, if you’re not you might question this hearing.

    She’s wearing pink today. No bright red lipstick. No makeup. I wonder if AOC purposely wanted to appear younger & more innocent for some reason.

      Exhibit A- Democrat’s vacationed in Puerto Rico with lobbyists. Drank, made promises, etc. took gifts, money, etc. from corporate interests groups and organizations. AOC just threw her party under the bus. The President is supposed to be regulated or checked by the legislative and judicial branch, something we call checks and balances. Unfortunately, under Obama both branches were corrupt and infiltrated by Anti-American operatives.

    There are no words ! This despicable Representative, Casio Cortez is such a violent waste of time. Figure out how to get a person who was elected but has no idea how to do her job out of Office. Look what happened when you all kept Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Boxer, Feldstein, and the COwboy from Florida. We need to “nip this in the bud.”

    She’s a self-serving imbecile. She just got them to admit in front of the world how they all go into office and become millionaires. They take money from these companies then do or pass things that will elevste the stock and mske them lots of money. And pass legislature to deregulate or benefit these companies. Thanks Cortez…..you got them to admit how they make their millions by being “the bad bad guys”.

    A-OC should go back to bartending. By the way, with her college degree, why was she bartending? I have done that job, years ago and I never went to college. Not till much later and after that I didn’t tend bar. She either has one of those good for nothing degrees, or she didn’t learn much. But she sure is making the Democrat party look foolish.

    Hello Miss.Camera Cortez, You’ve proven at the podiums and interviews just how uneducated you are about US and world history. Your lack of knowledge of our Constitution and why we love/cherish America.is ignored.The midterm election is over yet you keep trying to sell yourself and your ideas. Stop. If you truly have a Degree in Economics you wasted your money on the College you attended because there is Nothing in this life free. You will not be able to just take from one to give to another. It does not work like that. The majority of the American people and the Main Stream Media are using you as a joke. You are being laughed at every time you open your mouth. You have a tendency to offend peoples intelligence and it leaves your intelligence in question. I would imagine you have offended a lot of your colleagues with your protests and antics. Stop just Stop. You’ve grown such an ego expecting we citizens to accept your selfish demands that’s against everything we cherish as American’s. This is America by the people for the people. We do NOT support your unrealistic ideology to destroy. We are your Employer. PERIOD

    Yes she is despicable and yes she is an imbecile but I’m terrified of her!! There are so many ignorant people out there, especially young don’t have a clue people, that are listening to her and believing her garbage.

    This poor thing is brainless – dumber than a box of wet rags. Pray for her and pray she’s a one term idiot.

    She is too immature and naive being in Congress! After all, she is a collrge graduate and the only job she could find was cocktail waitressing. This does not reflect very well for her! She probably ran for Congress only because she was bored with her job and was tired of sitting in her bedroom at her parents’ home surrounded by her Barbie collection and her participation certificates.

    I’m trying to get my eyes straitened out from a major eye roll. Where does she get her facts from? She can keep going because she’s definitely making a good case for why no one should be a Democrat.

    I don’t understand. Everyone’s a crook. All sides. What does she want done? Is her purpose to somehow use this against POTUS? She’s as crooked as the rest! I don’t understand why people think this is funny. It’s horrifying that this is an open secret.

    Now you know where she thinks her money is going to come from but one thing she still does not understand will not win no matter and if she uses illegal funds she will be disqualified that is even if her own party lets her run.

    This AOC chick is the shining example of why people should not waste their money sending their kids to a lib college. She is a prototypical millennial brat. She gets a college degree and at 29 years old has zero viable skills or experience. You spend $100,000 to be a bartender when you could have spend $500 to get the same skills at bartender school.
