AOC Makes Fun of Rush ‘Pretending to Be Surprised’

“To do it in the middle of a State of the Union, and not even dignify it with its own ceremony, as it has, there is all sorts of norms that are being violated,” AOC said. “Not just for people’s humanity but also, it truly just cheapens the value of it.”

Ocasio-Cortez made fun of Limbaugh for “pretending to be surprised,” saying his reaction was “such a joke.” It had been announced earlier on Tuesday that Limbaugh would be receiving the award.

“He had to like, pretend that this was some kind of Oprah moment, was so disingenuous, and to do that, and to give it to Rush Limbaugh when there were plenty of people in that audience that have contributed positively to the fabric of American society, much more, frankly, than he has, it’s red meat to his base,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Trump knows what he’s doing… he wants to assert that Rush Limbaugh is somehow on the same level as Rosa Parks, and it’s truly nauseating.”

Limbaugh is Deaf

Some on social media pointed out that Limbaugh is deaf, and the device he uses might be the reason for the reaction he had that some are interpreting as surprised.

Not that Ocasio-Cortez would even consider, much less respond, to these valid observations.

AOC has zero class. So much for love and compassion when it comes to today’s Democratic Party!
