Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is full of “hot takes” that aim to play to the left and trigger the right. According to Sarah Sanders, the White House is not listening to her “on much of anything” after she predicted the world is coming to an end in 12 years due to climate change.
‘Look, I don’t think we’re going to listen to her on much of anything,’ Sanders said to Sean Hannity when she was asked about her recent statements on climate change.
Sarah Sanders laughs when questioned about @AOC.
Says the White House probably isn’t going to listen to her about much of anything.
Cortez is the new liberal flavor the month. She keeps putting her foot in her mouth and doesn’t know when to stop.

Per Daily Mail:
‘Particularly not on matters we’re gonna leave in the hands of a much, much higher authority, and certainly not listen to the freshman Congresswoman on when the world may end.
‘We’re focused on what’s happening in the world right now.’
The New York Congresswoman made the statement on Monday at event commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.
‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and… your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’ she said.
Ocasio-Cortez went on to say that she and other millennials viewed climate change as a war.
‘This is the war – this is our World War II,’ she said.
The only issue is that we already had our World War II. Nothing can be “our World War II” because we already had it when we became back-to-back World War champs.
On one hand, she continues to get exactly what she wants, which is attention. Why give it to her? But on the other hand it’s too easy to blow holes in her statements and point out what a fool she is.
