Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took her political show on the road this week, and she wasted little time smearing regular Americans and the U.S. Constitution.
The New York socialist lawmaker carried out a nasty political stunt that resulted in her mocking “flyover states” and calling the Electoral College a “racist scam.”
And many Americans sounded off after her video clip caught fire on social media.
AOC shared a video to Instagram where she is filmed flat plains while she called for the Electoral College to be abolished.
“All right everyone it’s been a minute. We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Many votes here, as you can see. Very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean, I can’t think of any other way. Can you?” she mockingly asked.
The socialist went on to call the Electoral College a “scam” and said that because of “racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a one person, one vote” system where all our votes are counted equally.”
It’s more than clear what AOC was saying and implying.
Some states are more populated than others, so her argument is that the Electoral College system that spreads the power of electing the president equally to all states is unfair.
As such, her weak argument is that the system must be abolished.
She apparently thinks liberal strongholds like New York and California should have all of the say in who wins presidential elections.
And this did not sit well with many Americans who sounded off on Twitter in response to AOC’s video.
“It’s what made Americans equal,” one Twitter user wrote.
Electoral College is in the Constitution to ensure small, rural states had same power as the big urban ones. Used to teach that in civics class. It's what made Americans equal. Of course, AOC sees rural U.S. as "unwashed masses" & wants to take our power. No thanks.

@AOC for more than 200 years, the electoral college has helped keep America out of the hands of radicals…both from the right and the left….so why change it if it has worked up till now?

This has already been a horrific month for Ocasio-Cortez.
Federal Election Commission data reveals that 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 re-election 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.
That’s not all AOC has said recently.
During an interview last week 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.
Earlier this month, it was also revealed that two top officials who worked for Ocasio-Cortez are leaving.
Her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti and her communications director, Corbin Trent, are both resigning to “pursue other opportunities.”
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 go to jail if their control over Justice Democrats, a far-left PAC, was intentionally hidden.
Former FEC commissioner Brad Smith said 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.”
Around that same time, it was also reported that Chakrabarti allegedly funneled over $1 million in political contributions to his private business.
With all of this considered, AOC’s political future could be in serious jeopardy.
