‘Spoiled’ Debbie Downer called out for pouting at SOTU. Her response makes things worse.

According to columnist Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “had a rare bad night” Tuesday at President Donald Trump’s the State of the Union address.

In a tweet posted after the speech, Noonan described the young socialist as “looking not spirited, warm and original as usual but sullen, teenaged and at a loss.”

Look:

She wasn’t wrong. For most of the evening Ocasio-Cortez looked like this:

Being as Ocasio-Cortez tends to be inordinately sensitive about everything — including legitimate calls for debate — she, of course, took offensive to Noonan’s tweet.

“Why should I be ‘spirited and warm’ for this embarrassment of a #SOTU?” she angrily tweeted, ignoring polls from CNN and CBS that show that a majority of viewers liked address.

“Tonight was an unsettling night for our country. The president failed to offer any plan, any vision at all, for our future. We’re flying without a pilot. And I‘m not here to comfort anyone about that fact.”

Look:

Her temperamental reply seemed disingenuous in light of her own behavior. While she did indeed spend most of the SOTU address pouting, there was one moment when she flew out of her chair to join her cohorts in applauding loudly over what the president had just said.

She did so after the president announced the gains in female employment seen under his administration: “No one has benefited more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58% of the new jobs created in the last year,” he said.

“All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before. …  And exactly one century after the Congress passed the constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote, we also have more women serving in the Congress than ever before,” he added shortly after.

Now watch her reaction to both statements below:

For someone who purports to feel so glum about America’s future under Trump, she seemed awfully thrilled to learn that women are thriving under the economy he’s built.

Yet she and her cohorts appeared almost displeased when Trump announced that black, Hispanic and Asian and disabled unemployment have reached record lows.

She seemed equally indifferent to the president’s plans to end sex trafficking, end needless wars, end partisan gridlock, protect babies from infanticide and build more infrastructure:

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

Her rhetoric and behavior suggest that she and her cohorts disliked Trump’s SOTU address, not because of lack of a substance, but rather because it wasn’t about them enough. It didn’t praise them enough. It didn’t cater to their interests and political concerns enough.

This “me, me, me” mentality certainly speaks to 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez, whose equally naive and narcissistic peers among millennials prefer Venezuelan-styled socialism to American capitalism.

What this mentality certainly doesn’t reflect is reality, as noted by all the top-voted replies to AOC’s temperamental tweet.
