AOC Catches Heat on Twitter for Throwing Unnamed Staffer Under Bus for Initial ‘Working Draft’ of Green New Deal

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was roasted on Twitter this weekend after she blamed an unnamed staffer for releasing the “working draft” of the Green New Deal to the press and uploading it on her official website during a Friday appearance on MSNBC.

The New York Democrat threw an unnamed staffer under the bus for the calamitous rollout of her nonbinding environmental resolution, the Green New Deal, claiming the staffer “had a really bad day at work” when the initial FAQ document was sent to the press and posted on her website in February.

The widely-ridiculed original document included language on providing “economic security” to those “unwilling to work” and “fully get[ting] rid of farting cows and airplanes.” After days of being mocked and criticized online, the document was scrubbed from her website.

She continued on to claim that the document was a “working draft” before calling for a “serious conversation” on technological innovation.

Ocasio-Cortez’s claim may have gotten a chuckle from the audience, but some on Twitter didn’t take too kindly towards the freshman firebrand hanging her staffer out to dry.

The congresswoman’s claims that the original Green New Deal FAQ was a “working draft” echoes her previous claims from February, as IJR Red previously reported.


  1. Shades of Klobuchar! At least the dog didn’t press her “enter” button.

    Seriously, this doesn’t speak well of her leadership or management skills.

  2. Hays interviewing Cortez – talk about your JV’s!

  3. Well she is a Democrat socialist he job is to blame others for what she does.
