Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave a peek inside her socialist mind and the results were anything but clear.
The Democratic Socialist congressional candidate from New York spoke with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes in the wake of Friday’s Senate vote sending Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh towards confirmation.
Hayes asked Ocasio-Cortez about her plans heading into Congress if she is elected in November.
“You’re going in there at a time when people talk about how its broken,” Hayes said “and its so polarized, both of which I think are true, and you’re also coming really as an outsider at a moment where I think people like are watching what happened today, and they want to storm the gates, and you’re gonna actually do that.”
“So what’s your plan?” he asked on “All In With Chris Hayes” on Friday night.
“Well I think a lot of it has to do with changing our strategy around governance,” Ocasio-Cortez replied, launching into a jumbled, illogical response that defied understanding.
“You know there’s a lot of inside baseball and inside the beltway, you always hear that term thrown around, but there are very few organizers in Congress and I do think that organizers operate differently, it’s a different kind of strategy,” she said.
“And what it is is really about organizing, and really thinking about that word, organizing,segmenting people, being strategic in their actions,” she went on.
“In really bringing together a cohesive strategy of putting pressure on the chamber instead of only focusing on the pressures inside the chamber,” she concluded her ramble.
It wasn’t exactly clear if Hayes followed her disjointed response.
“That’s really an interesting thought,” he said.
The most hilarious part is when the host says “That’s a really interesting thought”. https://t.co/XXSIrTA9jL

The New York City congressional hopeful, who was mocked a few days ago for thinking she will be “inaugurated” into office if she wins the race in November, also blamed Republicans for protests swirling around the confirmation of Kavanaugh.
“But, you know, I think if a lot of these Republican Senators are upset at the reaction that’s going on, maybe they should stop running away from their town halls,” she said.
But it was her twisted response about her congressional plans that sparked a collective head-scratching on Twitter.
She says so much without saying anything at all

So she is going to be an organized organizer and have a very strategic strategy?

She fails to complete a sentence let alone a rational thought.

She should start with organizing her thoughts.

Pay attention kids. This is the danger of learning everything you know about politics from memes.
