AOC Calls Out Trump Economic Adviser for Saying Republicans Will Not Budge on Coronavirus Relief

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is not happy with the suggestion of a White House adviser that the coronavirus relief packages pushed by Democrats are “blue state bailouts” that are unnecessary because “the economy is doing fine.”

On Wednesday, economic adviser Stephen Moore said, “I don’t see Republicans budging on the blue state bailout, and the economy is doing fine — much better than anyone expected.”

“We think the economy is strong because Trump didn’t go along with a deal,” he added.

Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter, “[Thirty] million people in this country are at risk of eviction. Millions of people are unemployed or underemployed from cut-back hours.”

She added, “The economy is not the stock market. We are NOT doing fine. People need help in red states and blue, and our job is to help everyone. This is basic.”

Congress has been gridlocked for months on talks of coronavirus relief packages. The negotiations failed to bear fruit as the presidential election loomed.

The House passed a $3 trillion stimulus package called the HEROES Act in March, but it was never taken up in the Republican-controlled upper chamber.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said this week that the Senate wants a bill containing financial relief but that the Democrats’ proposals are too expensive.

Meanwhile, coronavirus cases have spiked across the country and some states have resumed precautions they were taking during the worst times of the pandemic.

In New York, schools are halting in-person classes. The city of Philadelphia has banned all indoor gatherings as hospitals are in danger of becoming overwhelmed with patients. Michigan and Washington state have both banned indoor service at restaurants.

  1. Mary says, “MY GOD, YOU ALL are a bunch of SICK BASTARDS” right after accusing someone of being irrelevant, ignorant, and a degenerate inbred. 😀

  2. AOC, we care NOT what thoughts you have bouncing around in your head, YOU, my dear, ARE IRRELEVANT!!! As for making fun of ANYONE pertaining to their appearance, YOU PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT, DEGENERATE INBREDS yourself, ones appearance, stature is HERIDATARY, NOT something that was chosen, and to poke fun of someone because of appearance MY GOD, YOU ALL are a bunch of SICK BASTARDS, my only hope is, maybe YOU and YOURS will, ya know……….

  3. Walter Mitty Shorty love to see I hit a sore spot with you being Short and am in your head. More to come.

  4. Donald, A con artist, a bigot, and a liar walked into a bar…the bartender said “What’ll you have Mr. President?”

  5. “Shorty take your elevator shoes off before you measure yourself.” Lying Paul The Emeffer

    You can find articles with pictures online about King Donald The Loser wearing lifts, to make himself look taller than he really is. You can learn something about yourself here, Lying Paul The Emeffer.

  6. Ben Shapiro: “American political commentator. He has mentioned he is 5ft 9 numerous times on twitter, including a dig at Trump: “LOL! Even I, at a strapping 5’9″, have bigger hands than 6’2″ Trump. Sad! Weak!”, and a mention of his weight “5’9″ and a ripped 155.””

    You can find a picture of Ben Shapiro standing in front of a line-up graph and see for yourself how short he really is. Ben is so self-confident that he thinks that he can get away with lying about his diminutive height.

    He is 5′ 6 ¾ (169.5 cm). Butvhe feels that he has to lie about that. You can learn something about yourself here, Lying Paul The Emeffer.

  7. Cherl there is an old saying about people with the short man complex, you may have heard of it. It goes like this
    “Little people should be looked at and not heard”.
    I wish IJR had a blocking feature like other social media sites so that his stupid orations with his fingers on most of the threads here can be disregarded as bullshit.

  8. Cherl it is clearly evident that GC is height challenged and because of that he deflects his short stature by being a narcissist and being pompous.
    It is commonly know as short man complex or Napolean syndrome. I imagine when he was a kid he was picked on on the playground at school which started the complex to manifest.

  9. Sharal, I have a sense of what is right and what is a grift. If you want to call that superiority, that’s on you. That displays a sense of inferiority.

  10. “General: A legitimate election is one that is fair and verified. We’ll see what the outcome is.” ray

    Arizona: verified
    Nevada: verified
    Michigan: verified
    Georgia: verified
    Pennsylvania: pending, but math

    Fact it, ray. I hope you can do better math than a lot of others around here. It is game over and the fascist turd will soon get flushed.

  11. Poor Jayjay. He doesn’t understand the word irony. He condemns Trump supporters for name calling and the proceeds to do what? Use the typical liberal go to words (yawn) to defend himself. That was fun.

  12. AOC? Who is this person? Oh, that’s right, the wacko with no integrity or brain. Glad I settled that.

    General: A legitimate election is one that is fair and verified. We’ll see what the outcome is.

    Christopher: Blue vs. Red is really right vs. wrong. See what is right, without bias and see who is mostly doing what is right for this Country.

  13. “She is THE ENEMY!” Linda

    That is an interesting comment on the state of this nation, don’t you think? A legitimately elected Congresswoman and you have the audacity to call her, what was it, “THE ENEMY”, coming from a military family member, too? What has this country come to? What a state of affairs. Pathetic.

    “[King Donald The Loser] is standing
    up for what is RIGHT! He is probably the first
    president who cares about the American people.

    This is what a weak cult member would say. You have been sucked into his grift and you can’t even see it. If you weren’t so frigging dangerous to this country, you would be pitiable.

    “THEY DID NOT WIN THIS ELECTION!” Linda

    Confused by big numbers, are you? Who’da thought.

  14. “Trump is illegally trying to overturn the election and the spineless republican politicians are silent.” Jayjay

    The spineless Democratic politicians are ALSO silent. What have they done or said to indicate that they REALLY have their heart in things? What? Nothing. They SHOULD have put all of the American Fascists on constant blast telling every American what King Donald The Loser is REALLY trying to do – overturn a legitimate election – and how they are trying to do that.

    Come on! They are weak, feckless cowards.

  15. More nasty, toxic name calling From the trumpers. Look at their role model…a racist, misogynistic and fascist Narcissist that secretly wishes he could be just like his hero, Putin. Trump is illegally trying to overturn the election and the spineless republican politicians are silent. Trump wants Ed, Cheryl, Peggy, Donald and Jeff to hate so he can control who they believe and what they believe and it’s all lies! His end game is to destroy democracy!!

  16. I’d really like to know what country is doing fine because I’d sure like to move there before millions of homeless are running the streets seeking shelter. Last time I looked there’s about 40% out of work. I guess because some idiot says everything’s fine means everything is great, no problem. So let me try that with the virus, Abra kadabra Virus be gone!!!, sorry guess I didn’t say the words right.
    So Nancy’s screaming how things suck, Trump said we need it now and others are saying no, we don’t need anything because your blue and dumb and we’re red and great. Quit with the red/blue thing…hell we’re American’s. Didn’t we just go through months learning about black & white? Now we need to learn red & blue? What Congress needs to learn is pink, as in the color of YOU’RE FIRED!!! Before you leave, GIVE US BACK OUR MONEY, because all you want to do is buy guns and tanks with it while throwing away the already paid for stuff.

  17. Prejudice Peggy referring to blue states
    Enjoy being divisive like your leaders?
    We are blue and red just in case you forgot
    Ed same for you, what’s the problem you can’t tell AOC is a WOMAN !? Or you, like Linda, simply can’t handle women in power.
    You and your pack of dumb dumbs will soon be part of the past and I’m thrilled!

  18. Wow Linda, I see you’re not concerned about supporting female empowerment, I think you sound like a misogynist. And somewhat of a racist (oh that’s why you like the don, commonality)
    I guess it doesn’t bother you to hear the president of the USA talk filthily about grabbing women by their p….s.
    You’re on the wrong ship and you’re going down.
    It’s a new generation, a new time, a new America is emerging and people who talk like you will soon be outcasts. Poor dear. Think
    Just think
    I know you can’t but at least I’m encouraging you to

  19. Hooray for Cheryl, ed, Peggy & Jeff!
    These are real Americans.
    The jig is up Corporal Klink!

  20. YES! I love Donald’s post! Hooray for this dude!
    Thank God some one has a sense of humor
    and sees the real truth! Thank you Donald!
    Love you!

  21. AOC, a superhero? She is THE ENEMY!
    Donald Trump did not “die.” He is standing
    up for what is RIGHT! He is probably the first
    president who cares about the American people.
    There is a skunk waiting to get in the White House
    whose partner is a TRUE danger to our country.
    She was picked specifically because of her race and
    her sex! THEY DID NOT WIN THIS ELECTION!

  22. The joke is on you, Donald.

    AOC is a superhero who can fly. King Donald The Loser died because he couldn’t figure out how to pull a ripcord.

  23. A priest, a 10-year old school girl, AOC and President Trump are on an airplane. On board are 4 parachutes. Mid way into the flight, the plane develops mechanical problems. The pilot gets on the loudspeaker and says that the plane will ultimately crash. He grabs a parachute and jumps out of the plane.
    The passengers then start to talk among themselves. The priest says that he should get one of the other parachutes because he was the spiritual leader of a large parish and his flock needed him. He grabbed one of the remaining chutes and jumped out.
    AOC then said that she should have one of the remaining parachutes because she was a Congresswoman and was the new face of the Democrat Party. She then jumped out.
    President Trump then looked at the little girl and told her that he had lived a long life and accomplished a lot of things, but her life was just beginning and she should take the last parachute and save herself.
    The little girl then said, “Mr President, there are two parachutes left. The new face of the Democrat Party jumped out of the plane with my back pack.”

  24. And AOC’s idiotic Progressive policies are going to make this all go away how? Given any sort of leeway, she and her ilk would accelerate the fall into the abyss.

  25. Not this one again. Is she the spokesperson for the Democrats? She gets more attention than old Bernie or even old Joe. The Democrat ( not the Democratic) Party is far from the party of Harry Truman or even John Kennedy.

  26. So pass a “clean” covid relief bill.
    Get rid of the pork.
    And get rid of the bailing out of the blue states because the democrats can’t manage to tie their shoes much less manage a state government.

  27. Please ignore the rants of this still first-term Congress{person?] who is given way too much facetime.
