    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t take kindly to being called ‘sullen’ at State of the Union address

    During President Trump’s State of the Union address, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stood out among a sea of women wearing white as a tribute to U.S. suffragists.

    At times she remained seated as others stood.

    And serious while others applauded.

    In fact, Ocasio-Cortez’s reaction to Trump’s speech Tuesday night was somber — and it prompted a debate on social media about her “sullen” appearance and the apparent condescension in telling a woman to smile.

    After the address, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan wrote on Twitter that Ocasio-Cortez “had a rare bad night, looking not spirited, warm and original as usual but sullen, teenaged and at a loss.” The comment drew scorn from some people on social media — including from Ocasio-Cortez, who clapped back against critics.

    “Why should I be ‘spirited and warm’ for this embarrassment of a #SOTU?” she responded. “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.”​

    Say what you want ... AOC is the fucking master of the clapback.

    Seems a bit off, the left constantly mocking the right for reacting to the left boasting about its newest and greatest toy.

    Presently Ocasio-Cortez is the leader of the Dems, and it's not the Righties who've accomplished that magnificent achievement.

    I have no idea what clapback is but maybe AOC wants free medical care to cure that STD.

    AOC may be the most effective communicator we've seen in a generation.

    For decades, any time somebody mentioned Eisenhower-level tax rates, Republicans went "You want to take 70% of everyone's paycheck, hur hur hur!" and Democrats cowered in terror and dropped the subject.

    AOC not only doesn't run away, she says "No, look, either you don't understand what a marginal tax rate is or you're lying and hoping we won't notice, and here are the six different reasons why you're full of shit."

    And as a result, people are actually talking about and understanding the difference between marginal and effective rates for the first time in decades.

    Even centrists and right leaning dems re afraid of her given how fascist and corrupt they look next to her. Really, congress needs a few real progressives to contrast how far right the center has gone and how DINOs need to be primaried and go republican where they belong.

    so she's Puerto Rican. Big deal. Everywhere I've lived people of Puerto Rican descent are seen pretty much the same as Caucasians.

    I think I've mentioned one of the wealthiest families in Norphlet. The one where the daughter was a smoking hot cheerleader and student of mine. She gave me a sexy picture of herself when she graduated. Her father is Puerto Rican. General manager of a nearby sawmill up the road. The daughter ultimately married into one of the other wealthy local families. One heavily invested in crude oil production.

    Her read of NY have a ton of PR in them. You are getting pure FOB residents straight off the Island, and there is a ton of PR influence. Maybe if she was fresh off the Island she would be a bit more familiar with PR, but there are a ton of people there who still have family and friends in PR and visit them in the non tourist areas. Saying her ancestors are PR points more to an Elizabeth warren situation where I would say AOC has direct contact with PR heritage and is not some person with a percentage of brown way back when that she never had any real contact with.

    You are not eligible to serve as president until you are at least 35. Which means she can't even run until 2024.

    I knew there were lots of Puerto Ricans in New York. Remember the last regular episode of Seinfeld was built around the Puerto Rican Day Parade.

    Shows how much you know about Puerto Ricans. You don't fuck up their nationality. They are quite proud of their country and their people. They are Hispanic and they speak a form of Spanish in their country, not an english derivative. You also have to remember the WASPS were occupiers in their country. Their natives are more related to south American Indian and Spanish.

    I think a supposed history teacher would know the general history of the Island, but you are probably a wildlife officer today.

    So your gret knowledge comes from watching Seinfeld. Mine comes from living and working in the fucking Bronx asshole. I have been with their families and known them. I don't have to watch Seinfeld, I am from NY in the city area. I have been to the Puerto Rican day parade you speak of with my PR friends. I don't sit in Arkansas pretending I know people because I watch sitcoms.

    Are you fucking legally retarded? Where do you get "all Latina women are crazy" from? I said this particular Latina is crazy. Yeah, you are legally retarded - tough break for you.
    BTW are you serious with "Latina women?" :lol: The letter a on the end of the noun makes it female. Latina is a feminine word genius. It would be like saying a Latino man - the letter o on the end makes the noun male. It would be like saying "a lady woman" or something. Were you home schooled by chance?

    It’s when someone tries to insult you or put you down, but you respond in such a way that you come out on top.

    Was that an attempt at an insult?

    Yeah, you’re pretty threatened by women in power. Like all truly weak men.
