Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been endlessly making controversial statements since she became a member of Congress back in January.
But what the the New York socialist said about those who support President Donald Trump will have many Americans very upset.
During an interview on “Pod Save America,” Ocasio-Cortez flat-out declared that many of Trump’s supporters are not educated enough to understand that they are racist.
“It’s not about asking are Trump voters racist. We need to talk about racism, not racists. Racist — it’s a very two-dimensional, boring conversation. Is something racist, yes or no,” AOC began.
“We need to talk about racism, its contours, its histories, where it manifests, how it’s used, because like all winning political phenomena, whether good or bad in your opinion, they rely on collation building. So Trump relied on a coalition, and a core part of that coalition were racists building a collation with all sorts of other people that could be susceptible to racist views—if they were blankets and layered and made people feel good about it not being a racist thing,” she added.
AOC then kicked it up a notch and went after Trump supporters with her worst comments yet.
“So there are a lot of people that support Trump that genuinely don’t believe that they are racist because we do not talk about or educate people on recognizing racism. And because we do not do that we get caught in this debate of is something racist,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
She added, “Then people use their defensiveness, and they say, ‘Well, it’s not racist because I’m not racist and I believe this thing because it’s economic in nature.'”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just called Trump supporters racist.
This is a typical Democratic tactic, and this line of attack is tired and baseless.

This is what AOC and her liberal allies think of Trump supporters.
But maybe Ocasio-Cortez is so angry because she had just been smacked with bombshell news that could result in her only serving one term in office.
According to Federal Election Commission data, almost no one from Ocasio-Cortez’s district is donating to her re-election campaign.
Over 99 percent of AOC’s reported contributors to her reelection campaign in the first half of 2019 came from people who do not live in her congressional district.
Just 10 individuals living in her district in the first half of 2019.
If her own constituents aren’t donating to AOC, that’s a big problem because it may result in many not voting for her reelection.
As crazy as it may seem, this isn’t the only bombshell news that could result in Ocasio-Cortez only serving one term in office.
Several members of AOC’s staff are abandoning ship and getting out while they still can — including two top officials who played a big role in helping her get elected last fall.
Her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti and her communications director, Corbin Trent, are both resigning to “pursue other opportunities.”
While the liberal media is brushing this off as no big deal, Chakrabarti’s departure may not be a coincidence.
In recent months, AOC and Chakrabarti have found themselves in legal trouble for violating ethics rules.
On top of that, Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti “could be facing jail time” if their control over Justice Democrats, a far-left PAC, was intentionally hidden.
Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti “obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group.”
Brad Smith, another former FEC commissioner, said back in April that if “a complaint were filed, I would think it would trigger a serious investigation,” adding that both Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti “could be facing jail time.”
“At minimum, there’s a lot of smoke there, and if there are really only three board members and she and [Chakrabarti] are two of them, sure looks like you can see the blaze. I don’t really see any way out of it,” Smith said.
Around that same time, it was also reported that Chakrabarti allegedly funneled over $1 million in political contributions to his private business.
AOC’s political future is definitely in serious jeopardy.
