DC is on high alert. Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez — or “AOC” according to critics and fans alike — just suffered a massive attack.
President Trump’s longtime counselor, Kellyanne Conway, strongly criticized AOC for her hypocrisy and called out the mainstream media in the process.
“I see officials who get a lot of airtime and ink like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez … who tweets many times about the mosque and never once about the Christians being killed in Sri Lanka,” said Conway.
Beforehand, Conway called the media “fangirls” of AOC and questioned them. She wondered if they would ever “bother to ask her why she’s been completely silent on the massacre against Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday?”
Conway has a wonderful point, but we shouldn’t hold our breath for the media to change their tune. Useful tools like AOC will continue to get a pass, while President Trump can’t get a break.
Conway said AOC’s problem is her “selectivity,” in which she’ll condemn a mosque attack but remain silent on Sri Lanka. One can only assume she cares about one and not the other.
