Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) outlined her radical views in a new interview, going after President Trump for allegedly paying only $750 in taxes, and suggesting that “these motherf***ers” get away with paying such low amounts while opposing publicly-funded programs like free college tuition.
In a wide-ranging interview and photoshoot with Vanity Fair, AOC is asked to discuss the New York Times report that claimed the President had paid so little in taxes.
That NYT report also noted that Trump “made the required payment to the I.R.S. for income taxes he might owe — $1 million for 2016 and $4.2 million for 2017.”
Still, AOC was incensed in discussing the matter.
“These are the same people saying that we can’t have tuition-free public colleges because there’s no money,” she said in the interview, “when these motherf***ers are only paying $750 a year in taxes.”
This new Vanity Fair profile on @AOC is the read of the day.

AOC: Trump Doesn’t Pay Taxes, Americans Might Not Be Safe

Aside from the “motherf***er” reference, the AOC interview and photoshoot with Vanity Fair is peppered with what read like rage-filled statements from the Congresswoman.
At one point, she decries “bullshit little 10 percent tax cuts” for the American people as insufficient incrementalism.
In another segment, she relays to the magazine that she threatened a Congressman who had wrongly referred to her in a condescending and disgraceful manner.
“You do that to me again,” she reportedly said, “I won’t be so nice next time.”
“This part hasn’t been reported: The next day Ocasio-Cortez approached Yoho and told him, ‘You do that to me again, I won’t be so nice next time.’” https://t.co/qBeKtQ888C

AOC believes the 2020 election is a choice between two totally different countries and warns that Americans may not be safe if President Trump wins.
“This is not about a decision between two candidates,” Ocasio-Cortez explains. “It’s about a decision between two countries.”
A Biden victory will give her COVID-ravaged district a “fighting chance,” Vanity Fair intones.
If the President is re-elected, however, AOC says, “I cannot honestly look [my constituents] in the eye and tell them that they will be safe.”
AOC goes on to claim she’s been the main focus of the election which is, of course, an example of misogyny.
This is totally right. And I wish more people understood this – each and every time it happens.@AOC: “It’s not an accident that, every cycle, the boogeyman of the Democrats is a woman. A couple of cycles ago, it was Pelosi. Then it was Hillary, and now it’s me.”

Hints At Pushing Biden To The Extreme Left
Ocasio-Cortez has repeatedly asserted that she and her fellow ‘Squad’ members will push Democrat nominee Joe Biden to embrace their radical platforms.
She also makes mention of this in the Vanity Fair piece.
Under a President Biden, “if his life doesn’t feel different,” she points to a cab driver whizzing by our table, “if their life doesn’t feel different,” she gestures to people walking by the beauty shop and Bengali Halal Grocery, “if these people’s lives don’t actually feel different”—now she is giving a stump speech over her omelet—“we’re done.”
AOC adds, “You know how many Trumps there are in waiting?”

A recent Reuters report speculates that AOC and the ‘Squad’ might get some heat if Democrats don’t win big in the upcoming election.
“If their party falls short,” they write, “they’ll take a share of the blame.”
“Should Democrats fare worse than expected next month, the party may wonder whether it must redouble efforts to recruit more moderate candidates,” they add.
No matter which man wins, Ocasio-Cortez tells Vanity Fair, America is “still in a lot of trouble.”
It will be in a lot less trouble if Biden and the radical progressives are shut down, however.
