(Tea Party PAC) – Without a doubt, one of the most insane, ignorant, and absolutely foolish people to ever sit in a Congressional seat has to be New York’s own Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
This is the same woman who had no idea what the three branches of government were or how to operate a garbage disposal. And she’s helping pass laws, people. Heaven help us.
In a bid to say something completely off the wall and insane, which for AOC is just another day for the former bartender, she put the president in her crosshairs, criticizing him for warning Iran not to attack the US.
You just have to see this nuttiness to believe it.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called President Trump a “monster” Saturday night over his warning to Iran not to attack the United States. Ocasio-Cortez also falsely claimed that Trump threatened to kill “innocent families, women and children.”
Ocasio-Cortez was triggered by Trump warning Iran he had 52 targets, one for each American taken hostage by the Iranian regime in the 1979 Tehran embassy takeover, including sites “at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture”.
….targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!

Ocasio-Cortez replied, “This is a war crime. Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children – which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites – does not make you a “tough guy.” It does not make you “strategic.” It makes you a monster.”
This is a war crime.
Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children – which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites – does not make you a “tough guy.”
It does not make you “strategic.”
It makes you a monster. https://t.co/IjkNO8BD07

Earlier Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a video clip of herself dancing to the anti-war song, War.

Check out more on this from The Guardian:
Donald Trump has defended his threat to target Iranian cultural sites – widely seen as a war crime – if Tehran retaliates for the killing of General Qassem Suleimani.
On bellicose form, the US president also lashed out at Iraq following its parliament’s demand for American troops to be expelled from that country, and vowed to respond with crippling sanctions.
Trump’s comments suggest he was making no idle threat when, on Saturday night, he tweeted that the US has “targeted 52 Iranian sites … some at a very high level & important to Iran & Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD.”
Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One a day later, he sought to offer a justification. “They’re allowed to kill our people,” Trump said, according to a pool report. “They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people. And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural site? It doesn’t work that way.”
Targeting cultural sites is prohibited by international conventions signed in Geneva and at the Hague. In 2017, the United Nations security council passed unanimously a resolution condemning the destruction of heritage sites. The action previewed by Trump would almost certainly involve the deaths of civilians.
Trump’s statements come after secretary of state Mike Pompeo defended the assertion that the drone strike against Suleimani in Baghdad prevented an imminent attack on US interests. “We would have been culpably negligent had we not taken this action,” he told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday. When host Chuck Todd asked if retaliation against US citizens should now be expected, Pompeo admitted: “It may be that there’s a little noise here in the interim.”
US-Iran tensions are escalating following last Friday’s drone strike – ordered by Trump without congressional authorisation – in Iraq that killed Suleimani, commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force.
Again, these peole do not at all seem to care about what Iran has threatened to do to our people. They just want to find anything and everything possible to slam the president. That’s what Trump is up against these days, and why he’ll probably easily end up winning another term as president.
No one wants to go to war with Iran. No one wants to have to send troops into harm’s way. But if Iran threatens to attack us and makes good on those promises, we have no choice.
This is what leftists can’t wrap their brains around.
