What I find most interesting about this video is the attendance. But we can circle back on that.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to take her message to the people. From the looks of it, she’s at a high school auditorium where she’s giving a presentation.
AOC gets called out during Q&A:
Before we could get the event transcribed, they video mysteriously disappeared.
The gist of the confrontation revolved around Trump supposedly inciting violence against one of the new Muslim Congresswomen.
The gentleman asking AOC the question spun her around on her heels. But since I don’t have the video, let’s return to attendance.
A tweep named Gary noticed what I noticed:
Wow! I notice she’s got 10s of people there too!
Thankfully I grabbed a screenshot of the event or it would be like the event never happened.
Check out this audience at the event, for yourself.
From this vantage point, it seems the “future of the Democratic Party” is as popular of Robert “Beto” O’Rourke these days? That crowd is sparse.
In the video you could see that from all angles, the crowd was more than just sparce. I’m guessing the attendance amounted to around 50 people, max.
I noticed how few people were there. Yah exactly she’s a media darling not an American people darling. Just like all their puppets We the People don’t buy it. Good for that guy for using his 1st A to educate her and she sure needs a ton of that! Sheesh!
So what’s happening with AOC?
Is she still popular?
Reason seems to believe so. Because not long ago, Reason wrote that AOC’s appeal occurs because she’s more than political.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is wrong about a lot of things: She’s wrong about the Green New Deal, wrong about climate doom, wrong about taxes, wrong about Medicare for All, wrong about federal debt and spending, and wrong about plastic bags, just for starters.
But the former bartender is right—so very, very right—about using fresh juice in cocktails.
Use real citrus juice for your sours, people!
You deserve so much better than what you’re settling for 😭

More seriously, if you want to understand AOC’s appeal as a politician and public personality, it’s this: She uses online platforms like Twitter quite effectively by talking about things that are fun and trivial, helping to define her as something more than just another stodgy politician, as well as to draw attention to bigger, bolder, and more important ideas. Like using fresh juice in cocktails.
I disagree with Reason on this.
I think AOC is a flash in the pan. And I believe people see her meaningless tweets for what they are.
In fact, nothing is funnier than the videos from 8 year-old Ava remind us how easy it is to outsmart Ocasio-Cortez.
As long as Ava #miniAOCofficial enjoys doing these videos she will continue to keep making them and as long as #AlexandriaOcasioCortez keeps being #AOC we will have plenty of material to keep making them as well. Thanks again to everyone who had kind things to say about Ava. pic.twitter.com/Sn6VRTNiCB

I know when I read AOC’s++ tweets, I see a woman in way over her head. Moreover, she showcases idiocy in almost all her appearance.
I suspect her own constituents will have seen enough by 2020.
