Looks like AOC has finally morphed into a full blown Marie Antoinette, judging from her atrocious behavior at the Met Gala.
Actually, in a sense, AOC may very well come across as even worse, given that Marie Antoinette did not exactly feign compassion for the impoverished.
AOC, on the other hand, has apparently turned her extravagant, extremely expensive photo op with elite, leftist, celebrities, into some kind of PR message for the voiceless. She feigns concern for the poor, yet she ultimately gallivants with the rich.
Just consider some of her word salad regarding her Met Gala attendance below.
“Our culture is deeply disdainful and unsupportive of women, especially women of color and working class women (and LGBTQ/immigrant/etc) from the bottom up – whether it’s lack of childcare support of especially reserving pillory for elected women and femme people.” [Source: Newsmax]
Hilariously, AOC arrived on the arm of a Caucasian heir to a liquor fortune, which was a rather interesting choice of date giving all her racially-motivated commentary above.
Especially when she is wearing a dress that proclaims, “TAX THE RICH.” In red letters, no less.
In addition, AOC also misrepresented the background of the designer of the dress that she was wearing, implying that the designer was from the developing world.
“[I am] proud to work with [James,] a sustainably focused, Black woman immigrant designer who went from starting her dream [company]at a flea market in Brooklyn to winning [a Council of Fashion Designers of America award] against all odds — and then work together to kick open the doors at the Met.” [Source: Newsmax]
As it turns out, the “immigrant” arrived from Canada, not an impoverished nation.
However, AOC continues to demonstrate a woeful lack of detachment from reality, as she continued to yap away about socialist ideals while attending one of the most elitist events on the planet.
“The time is now for childcare, healthcare, and climate action for all. Tax the Rich. And yes, BEFORE anybody starts wilding out – NYC elected officials are regularly invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing our city’s cultural institutions that serve the public. I was one of several in attendance. Dress is borrowed.” [Source: Newsmax]
Hilariously, AOC seemed completely oblivious to the real reason why she received extensive criticism for her attendance.
Instead, she turned the criticism into yet another opportunity for self-victimization.
“I thought about the criticism I’d get, but honestly I and my body have been so heavily and relentlessly policed from all corners politically since the moment I won my election that it’s kind of become expected and normalized to me.” [Source: The Blaze]
Wear a dress that proclaims “TAX THE RICH.”
Then complains her body is being “policed,” rather than the obscene commentary on her dress, relative to the setting in which it was worn.
Needless to say, the American Accountability Foundation was unimpressed with the explanation from AOC. They subsequently sent a letter to the House Office of Congressional Ethics, requesting an ethics investigation into Ocasio-Cortez.
“Specifically, we believe Representative Ocasio-Cortez has violated clause 5 of Rule XXV of the Rules of the House of Representatives (commonly known as the Gift Rule) by accepting admission to the Met Gala, an event whose per seat costs is reported to range from $35,000 to $50,000, without having a permissible exemption to allow the acceptance of the lavish gift.” [Source: The Blaze]
Where exactly do lavish gifts fit into AOC’s “Tax the Rich” insistence?
Actually, this is exactly where they’d fit in: into tax violation codes.
“If Representative Ocasio-Cortez has used campaign funds to pay for this ticket, she has also violated FEC prohibitions on campaign funds being used for entertainment purposes.” [Source: The Blaze]
Perhaps AOC should focus on putting her own tax affairs in order first …
In the meantime, hopefully the ethics complaint will bring her back down to earth.
