    ***On the other hand, they also spread the rumor that she grew up rich and has lived in the lap of luxury.

    She’s a woman. She’s intelligent. She’s a policy wonk and is inspriational. So Trump and his followers are afraid of her.

    I await a humiliating tweet about her from the president. It will be a slap in the face to the small-town family values I was raised with, but who cares--Right?
    I think you may need to get your facts straight.

    1) AOC herself stated that he she couldn't afford an apartment in DC. That is not conservative propaganda. And not being able to live on DC is not the same as being destitute.

    2) It is not a rumor that she grew in affluence. Her father was an architect who founded his own architectural firm. Her father bought a home in Westchester, NY so AOC could attend better schools. Her fathered died when AOC was 19 and his death caused her family financial struggles because he didn't leave a will.

    3) How is AOC inspirational? I'm a Latino, a child of Mexican immigrants, and I find her an embarrassment to Latinos. She's college educated but spouts socialist nonsense. We Latinos struggle to be take seriously intellectually speaking and AOC makes all of us look foolish, She's arrogant and self absorbed which is shown through her constant Tweets. Her Green New Deal is rather vague and makes no sense.

    i was listening to a ben shapiro talk the other day (on youtube) and he mentioned trump, something along the lines of "trump is a hammer looking for something to hit. Sometimes he hits a nail and we all cheer. But sometimes he hits a baby"

    The election of Trump just opened the door for even sillier people to get elected. AOC is only the beginning. There will be many more to come.

    It can be traced back to Ronald Reagan in 1980, and Ronnie turned out to be okay as President.

    reagan had experience, at least - as governor of california

    same as carter, bush2, clinton

    bush1, Johnson, truman and nixon were veeps

    eisenhower was an anomaly but massively experienced and qualified

    kennedy was a less qualified anomaly - no executive experience, lots of legislative experience

    I'm no fan of Obama but at least he has some political experience. But now I guess bartending is a criteria?

    in 2008, obama had a bit of experience as a state senator and virtually no experience as a US senator

    further, he had zero experience as an executive

    Know that truth is not found in one group or in another group. Truth is found in the relationship between them.

    Working for an education is sometimes difficult. You often have to leave your pride behind. I don’t know if you had to work for your education, but I sure did. I was a dishwasher for two years to help me afford tuition and supplies. I had to work for my success.

    I didn’t know she was a bartender. I love margaritas.
