AOC on Trump: He’s ‘Afraid of Strong Women’ — and She Denies Being a Socialist

Not only that, the Democrat from New York insisted on calling the current administration 'corrupt'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) claimed President Donald Trump is “afraid” of “strong women” and denied the obvious fact that she’s a socialist.

The New York representative made the comments during an interview with Noticias Telemundo to correspondent Guadalupe Venegas, who baited her by reminding viewers of comments Trump has made regarding her “craziness.”

“One of the most controversial people with whom you have had exchanges is … President Donald Trump. He called you a ‘whack job’ on social media. He called you crazy, right?” Venegas asked.

“What do you think about the president?”

AOC suggested his disagreeing with her is a good thing because … well, racism!

“I think that if the president is calling me crazy, that’s good,” she replied. “It’d be a problem if he said he agreed with me because he has a lot of issues. He’s a racist and he’s anti-immigrants, but more than that, his administration is very corrupt.”

Ocasio-Cortez added, “I think he has a track record of … I think he’s afraid of women, of strong women, of Latina women.”

It’s an absurd assumption, in our view, that President Trump is afraid of strong women.

First lady Melania Trump is a strong woman — and he seems to be just fine with that.

He’s had numerous strong women as part of his administration, including Nikki Haley, Kellyanne Conway, and Betsy Devos, to name a few.

“At the beginning of the third year of his first term as president,” The Washington Examiner reports, “Trump has seven female top advisers, as compared to five for Obama, three for Bush, and five for Clinton at that point.”

What he is afraid of, however, are anti-American women too lacking in self-awareness to understand that they’re anti-American.

AOC followed up one lie with another, as we see it, claiming the term socialist is a bit strong in describing her.

“When the president or people call me [socialist], I always say, ‘Look at our policies, what we’re proposing.’ We’re not advocating total control of the economy,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“We’re talking about humane economic rights. We’re talking about education, health care, and fair wages,” she continued. “Here in the U.S., those values are called socialist values, but to me that says a lot about where we are in the U.S. Basic human rights are considered socialist.”

Ocasio-Cortez has repeatedly identified herself as a “Democratic socialist,” so denying that fact when others label her as such is futile.

Here’s a video of her explaining that there’s room in the Democrat Party for extremist socialists like herself:

Even beyond labels, AOC’s actions speak louder than words.

Check this out:

  • She advocates for as many Americans as possible to be reliant on government handouts.
  • AOC would like to see illegals get welfare benefits.
  • She pushed a massive and complete government takeover of anything from transportation, to health care, to a “public option guarantee” for jobs, to implementing a “social and ecological transformation to save the planet.”
  • She recently said Obamacare was too complex and wished for even more government control of insurance options.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), appearing on “Fox & Friends” over the summer, leveled AOC and her squad in a rant defining them as “anti-American” and “a bunch of communists.”

President Trump, during his last State of the Union address, vowed that America would never succumb to the travesty of socialism.

“Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country,” Trump announced. “America was founded on liberty and independence — not government coercion, domination and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.”

“Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

It looks like he’s not afraid of strong socialists after all.
