Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez A ‘Pompous Little Twit,’ Per Greenpeace Co-Founder; Trump Also Mocks Green New Deal

Democratic politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been on the rise ever since having been elected to serve in the House of Representatives in late June of 2018. More recently, however, she has become one of the political faces behind the ambitious Green New Deal, a Democrat-led proposal that would ostensibly see a “massive transformation of our society,” one which would include a total divestment from fossil fuels in addition to a controversial proposal to provide “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work,” per CNBC.

Not everyone is a fan of this proposal, however — as was made quite evident by ridicule from Republican quarters, including President Trump himself. During the Conservative Political Action Conference today, President Trump mocked the Green New Deal, per Fox News, going so far as to suggest that the Democrats should run with it in order to improve his own electoral future.

“New Green Deal or whatever the hell they call it… I encourage it. I think it’s really something Democrats should promote. No planes. No energy. When the wind stops blowing, that’s the end of your electric.” Trump took a moment to mimic a man staring skyward before continuing his comical critique. “Darling, is the wind blowing today? I’d like to watch television, darling.”
