someone might have wrote: He/She is ... [fill in the blank]. He/She will grow into the job.
That would seem to be the case with almost every rookie politician, including rookie presidents.

'Hypocrisy At Its Finest': Ocasio-Cortez's Campaign Fined For Failing To Carry Workers' Comp Coverage
Newly sworn-in democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has quickly become a darling on the Left, fashioning herself as the voice of the working class and the poor. But now she's under fire for failing to provide people who worked for her proper legal protection.

As reported by The New York Daily News on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez's campaign has been hit with a New York state fine for failing to carry workers' compensation coverage.

"The employer did not have the required workers' compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid," said Melissa Stewart, the spokeswoman for New York's Workers Compensation Board.
I know, "Whats the big deal, no one got hurt right?"
...
According to the NYDN, a "Democratic campaign veteran scoffed that 'it's not a great look' for Ocasio-Cortez that her campaign received a fine for not carrying workers' compensation coverage."

"This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers," added the Democrat.

GOP spokeswoman Jessica Proud called the news "hypocrisy at its finest."

The amazon kindle edition is not free (not surprising for Hachette), so I don't own it, but my local library has the ebook that I can borrow if I were inclined to read it, and I just might.

A "poster" size version (5418 x 7200 pixels) of the above image is downloadable from the publisher:

So yeah, she gets way too much attention from the right. President Trump handled her the right way, "who?"

However ,she gets way too much attention from the other 95% of the media as well lionizing her rise and making her out to be some hero for being a democrat elected in a democrat lock district.

Never fear! Shoving these "YOUNG BOLD RISING STARS" down your throat isn't stopping with her or the two crazy muslims chicks.

The Beto Documentary is on it's way!

You can smell the desperation to create a new JFK figure for democrats.

James Woods Calls Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 'The Most Dangerous Person' In The Nation
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is getting under conservatives’ skin so much that right-wing actor James Woods has labeled her “the most dangerous person in America.”

His over-the-top tweet on Thursday followed her punchy speech Wednesday on the floor of the House bashing President Donald Trump over the continuing partial government shutdown.

”It is not normal to hold 800,000 workers’ paychecks hostage. It is not normal to shut down the government when we don’t get what we want,” she said in her first address to House members.

You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

I get the point, writing off a neo-Bolivarian as "harmless" normalizes their lunacy. You do have to make it clear their ideas have been discredited every time they've been tried and are evidence that the person that has them is of low intelligence and poor judgment.

Stop being a meanie. He's giving her free publicity.

I mean more dangerous than Nancy (assuming you are speaking from a Republican point of view). :lmao:

No member of congress can ever be completely harmless, but otherwise she's not one of the biggies just yet (though that can change).
