Far-left socialist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez doesn’t have many friends in Congress, so she chilled out yesterday with a caged zoo animal who had no choice but to be her captive audience for the day.
AOC posted a Twitter video of herself playing with a penguin at an aquarium. Like an excited toddler, AOC scurries back and forth with the penguin, who apparently recognized a kindred spirit in the flip-floppy Democrat.
“A new day, a new friend,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

AOC’s Twitter video has garnered more than 3 million views. Not surprisingly, it has elicited some hilarious replies.
Interestingly, some of Ocasio-Cortez’s leftist fans slammed her.
“This animal belongs in the wild not in captivity. Zoos and aquariums are very sad places,” one animal-rights activist remarked.
I absolutely love you, but this animal belongs in the wild not in captivity. Zoos and aquariums are very sad places.

One elderly gentleman poked fun to AOC’s inane environmental policy ideas by joking: “Wow Alexandria, this is proof that we do not need to worry about that global warming, as penguins used to be a North Pole animal, but they can learn to swim in water instead of ice as this one has.”
Wow Alexandra ,, this is proof that we do not need to worry about that global warming as penguin’s use to be a North Pole animal but they can learn to swim in water instead of ice as this one has ,,, God has solve the problem for us yet-again

Another man invoked AOC’s worn-out Race Card, tweeting, “I know that Penguin, He’s Racist.”

One Twitter user echoed the sentiments of millions of Americans when he urged AOC to “GO TO WORK! Answer your phones or something.”

Another man remarked to AOC that the animal “has more intelligence then you 😂!”

Predictably, some leftists went crazy for the viral video, cooing how “cute” and “adorable” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez looked in her goofy post.
Keep in mind that AOC has repeatedly whined that no one takes her seriously. But she continues to use her massive social media audience to race-hustle and pander for retweets instead of addressing the problems of her constituents.

In a surprising turn of events, last month, AOC played the Race Card on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
The Dem civil war erupted after Ocasio-Cortez suggested that Pelosi was racist because she criticized the far-left Squad of herself, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.
Pelosi — who has been in Congress since 1987 (compared to AOC, who just started in January 2019) — warned Democrats not to feud in public because she realizes the importance of party unity, especially since we’re heading into an election year.
Tensions between Democratic Party leader Pelosi and the upstart AOC have flared for months.
“Virtually all communication between the two women has ceased,” one source told the Washington Post. “The two have not spoken one-on-one since February, when Ocasio-Cortez declined Pelosi’s personal request that she join her select committee on climate change, according to individuals who know both lawmakers.”
The Democrat civil war isn’t surprising, since there is increasing unrest between the centrist stalwarts within the party, and the small but boisterous far-left Squad comprised of AOC, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley.
As BizPac Review reported, Pelosi said the four rogue newbs may be popular on Twitter, but that means nothing in real life (i.e., in Congress).
“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following [within the Democratic Party]. They’re four people — and that’s how many votes they got,” Pelosi quipped.
