Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has only been a U.S. Congresswoman for two months, but that didn’t stop Time magazine from making her the cover girl for its April Fool’s issue.
In its April 1 edition, Time hailed Ocasio-Cortez as “the phenom,” touting her as an environmental champion for her valiant crusade against farting cows.

Greenpeace Co-Founder: AOC Is a ‘Pompous Little Twit’
Time’s fawning over AOC is comical because Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore has slammed her as a “pompous little twit” who’s clueless about science. He also tore into her hypocrisy.
“Whoops, AOC is a gas-guzzler,” Moore tweeted in March. “If only she realized that the CO2 she is emitting was helping plants grow healthier and increasing crop yields on farms around NYC. Then she could be sane.”
He added: “It seems many people agree that AOC is a bit too big for her britches. I’m in good company here. POTUS is right to encourage her to keep blathering insanity.”

Activist: AOC’s Plan Would ‘Bring About Mass Death’
Patrick Moore was responding to a New York Post report claiming that AOC is a rabid user of gas-guzzling car services like Uber and Lyft.
All the while, Ocasio-Cortez tells everyone else that they should take the bus — or the world will end in 12 years.
In February, Moore said AOC’s radical Green New Deal would usher in the end of mankind.
He explained: “If fossil fuels were banned, every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.”
Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get the food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.

Time Magazine in 1994: Another Ice Age Is Coming
Time magazine also has a spotty history with their environmental predictions. In 1994, an alarmist Time article trumpeted that the next “Ice Age” was coming and humanity would freeze to death.
Now, it claims Global Warming will kill us all. Just make up your mind, will ya?
AOC Ripped for Chasing Amazon Out of New York
As it is, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is still being mocked for chasing Amazon and its 25,000 high-paying jobs out of New York City.
AOC even accused Amazon of subjecting its employees to “dehumanizing conditions” at work.
As CCN reported, a senior vice president at Amazon responded by inviting AOC to tour the company’s facilities to dispel her claim. Ocasio-Cortez never responded to the invitation.

AOC’s Popularity Tanks Amid Unending Gaffes
The Amazon scandal — combined with AOC’s steady stream of epic gaffes — has caused her popularity to crater 15 points during the past six months.
According to a new Gallup poll, the former bartender’s unfavorable ratings rocketed from 26% to 41% since September 2018.
Gallup observed: “Americans have taken note of the meteoric rise of Ocasio-Cortez, who went from a Manhattan bartender to a committee member on the powerful House Financial Services Committee in less than a year. But their view of her has become slightly more negative than positive in the process.”
AOC Is the Gift That Keeps on Giving
Ocasio-Cortez’s hypersensitivity to criticism and her defensiveness have caused many on the right to mock her relentlessly.
AOC’s army of leftist superfans say that’s because the political right is afraid of her because she’s so powerful. Ha!
Liberal journalist Tim Poole — a supporter of Democrat socialist Bernie Sanders — summed it up best when he observed: “The left doesn’t realize that conservatives are pushing Ocasio Cortez on purpose because she makes the left look insane.”
