Cher Slams Ocasio-Cortez for the Loss of 25,000 Amazon Jobs in NYC

Some people are confused about a few things, as this opinion piece bluntly notes

American singer and actress Cher took a jab at New York progressives for squashing a deal with Amazon to establish its second headquarters in New York City.

The broken deal, which an Amazon spokesman said was specifically due, in part, to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her vocal resistance, was supported by 70 percent of New Yorkers.

It would have brought upward of 25,000 jobs to the region.

On social media, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated the news of losing such a vast amount of wealth and work.

“Everyday New Yorkers and their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” she gloated.

Cher, as she often finds herself, was confused.

Yet she still managed to send a first-of-its-kind coherent inquiry to the New York Democrats who chased Amazon out of the state.

Ocasio-Cortez defends chasing out jobs. Ocasio-Cortez has been lampooned by Hollywood liberals like Cher on one side, and Establishment Democrats such as Gov. Andrew Cuomo on the other.

Cuomo blasted the “small group [of] politicians” who “put their own narrow political interests above their community,” adding they “should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”

Ocasio-Cortez has been furiously tweeting explanations ever since which, at a minimum, demonstrate that her degree in economics was more of a pity handout than something showing a breadth of knowledge on the topic.

It’s nearly impossible to overstate the level of incompetence one has to attain to equate tax breaks with actual revenue that should have been spent on things such as teachers and firefighters.

The magic is gone. Cher’s taking a shot at Ocasio-Cortez is a bit surprising, since they both fall in the uneducated lunatic category on social media.

Even more so when you consider Cher was singing her praises not too long ago when the media manufactured a controversy over the New York socialist’s appearing in a dancing video.

Ocasio-Cortez responded glowingly …

Fantastic.

You did multitask  — managing to dance Amazon and 25,000 jobs right out of the city at the same time.
