Ocasio-Cortez under fire for comments on Electoral College


DEFORESTATION. HITTING BACK ON TWITTER SAYING HE IS OVERREACTING FOR POLITICAL REASONS.>>WE ARE COMING TO YOU LIVE FROM THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, MANY VOTES HERE, AS YOU CAN SEE. VERY EFFICIENT WAY TO LEADERSHIP OF THE COUNTRY.>>Sandra: THAT WAS ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ, THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS WOMAN CATCHING HEAT IN THE HEARTLAND OVER THAT INSTAGRAM VIDEO WHERE SHE IS CALLING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE OF RACIST SCAM. THIS IS THE FEDERAL JUDGMENT DEALS A MAJOR BLOW TO PROGRESSIVE EFFORTS TO REPLACE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE WITH A NATIONWIDE POPULAR VOTE. LET’S BRING IN THE FORMER COUNSEL TO THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WHO JOINS US NOW. GOOD MORNING AGREED TO HAVE YOU HERE THIS MORNING. YOU HEARD THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMAN THERE MAKE THAT POINT. WHAT DID YOU THINK?>>I THINK IT IS PART OF A SERIES OF EFFORTS THAT ARE INCREASINGLY POPULAR ON THE PROGRESSIVE LEFT TO GO AFTER THE FUNDAMENTAL PARTS OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL STRUCTURE AND DELEGITIMIZE THEM AND USE INFLAMMATORY TERMS. OBVIOUSLY, THERE ARE COMPLICATED BUT SOUND ARGUMENTS FOR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE WHICH WERE LAID OUT IN “THE FEDERALIST” PAPERS BY OUR FOUNDERS. I THINK THIS SERVES THE COUNTRY WELL FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS, CERTAINLY RECKLESS TO CALL THEM RACIST. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THE ELECTORAL SYSTEM, SHE IS FREE TO ADVOCATE FOR CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO DO SO BUT THIS KIND OF LANGUAGE IS REALLY, REALLY DESTRUCTIVE COMING FROM A MEMBER OF CONGRESS.>>Sandra: MEANWHILE, EXPAND ON WHAT WE ARE SEEING FROM THIS FEDERAL COURT AS YOU SEE ON THE FoxNews.com HEADLINE UNDERCUTTING PROGRESSIVE EFFORTS TO NULLIFY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, WHERE ELECTORS CAN VOTE FREELY. WHAT WAS THE DECISION MADE?>>THIS IS ABOUT FAITHLESS ELECTORS AND THE RIGHT OF MEMBERS OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE TO VOTE THEIR CONSCIENCE WHICH IS THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTIONAL DESIGN AND LOTS OF FOLKS ON THE LEFT WHO DON’T LIKE THE SYSTEM HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR WAYS WHERE STATES CAN MAYBE FORCE THE HAND OF THEIR ELECTORS AND THAT IS NOT GOING TO WORK MOST LIKELY. IF YOU WANT TO RESTRUCTURE THE SYSTEM, YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT USING THE TOOLS THE FOUNDERS GAVE US WHICH IS ARTICLE FIVE OF THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMENDMENT PROCESS. OBVIOUSLY SPEAKING OUT IN PARTICULAR, THE SENATOR REACTING TO WHAT SHE HEARD THERE, SHE SAID ACTUALLY TWEETING DIRECTLY AT HER, ELIMINATING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE WOULD SILENCE OUR VOICES HERE IN IOWA AND MANY OTHER STATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SHE THEN MADE THE CASE AND THAT TWEAK, THIS IS JUST MORE EVIDENCE OF HOW OUT OF TOUCH THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BECOME. WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS OF ALL OF THIS IS YOU LOOK AT THE LEGAL ASPECTS OF WHAT IS BEING DISCUSSED AS WE QUICKLY APPROACH 2020?>>IT IS JUST UNFORTUNATE THAT WE SEE THESE TWO SIDES OF THE COUNTRY COMING APART AND THE LEFT CASTING MUCH OF THE FEDERAL STRUCTURE, THE EXISTENCE OF THE SENATE, THE EXISTENCE OF THE FILIBUSTER, THE SEPARATION OF POWER, ALL LEGITIMATE AND ALL PART OF A CONSPIRACY WE NEED TO FIND WAYS TO COME TOGETHER AS A COUNTRY WHICH IS WHAT THAT STRUCTURE IS MEANT TO DO. IT IS MEANT TO CREATE A SYSTEM IN WHICH PEOPLE FROM GREAT CONCENTRATIONS OF WEALTH AND POWER THE CITY OF NEW YORK WHERE CONGRESSWOMAN COMES FROM. IF IT IS MEANT TO MAKE THEM APPEAL TO THE BROAD SWATH OF THE COUNTRY TO RURAL AREAS AS WELL AS URBAN AND HOPEFULLY THE SAME WOULD HAPPEN VICE VERSA.>>Sandra: IT IS BACK AND FORTH IN THE DISCUSSION AND AT

  • I get the distinct impression that if someone sat down with AOC and asked her how the Electoral College works and why the Americans have it as a crucial component of their election process, she wouldn't know.

  • It is mind boggling that every time, this so called educated female opens her mouth that the most ignorant crap spews forth. And that she was actually ELECTED into Congress. I mean ,she did talk before and during her election??? SMH!!!! AND WHY AS A FRESHMAN CONGRESSWOMAN IS SHE ALOUD TO SPEAK IN CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS????!!!!

  • This is how an Uninformed and uneducated Democrat representative who's never read the Constitution or been taught the reason for it craps out of her mouth. With her saying that about the electoral college and the Constitution, she should be impeached! If you cannot represent your constituents by the RULE OF LAW and The Constitution you are not upholding your oath.

  • This woman has no idea how our Government works.. and we have Checks and Balances up and down the Government.. Electoral college is there so that a few Radical places (New York, California) don’t decide the President Completely. Now Trump Obviously went right for the Electoral votes and not the Popular Vote.. It amazes me that everything she says needs to go, right now needs to go.. we must stay strong, starting to think we have seen one heads of the beast or the Harlot on its back..

  • “He [Obama] lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!” (Nov. 6)

    “The phoney [sic] electoral college made a laughing stock out of our nation. The loser one!” (Nov. 6)

    “More votes equals a loss…revolution!” (Nov. 7)
    -TRUMP

  • See what happens when you elect stupid people to Congress? Idiot voters should know something about government before they elect another dumb one.

  • How can AOC raise her right hand to "protect and defend the Constitution of the United States" when she daily bash the system? Huh? This crazy witch and the rest of the squad are the ones who need to be impeached…since day 1.

  • The electoral college is "racist" to her and others like her, because she can not understand how the system works…Wanna bet? She is too stupid to be in Congress.

  • I will love it when AOC loses to a  "shoe shine" boy, who challenges her in her reelection bid. How is she going to go back to her district and explain how she worked for them?

  • Uh didn't we learn in history that the American Forefathers DID NOT trust the common populace as they can be easily influenced

  • She's dumb. I mean really dumb.  That same electoral college voted in BO and Clinton.  This is just more TDS.  MABA.  Get this ridiculous excuse for a congresswoman, out of congress.  I don't care if it's a Democrat or a Republican, we need somebody with a brain.

  • She really believes there is a Electoral College around. She is on an USA Tour to find it. We wish her the best of luck. It's out there AOC, you can do it.

  • Let's think it through – the left want to eliminate the Electoral College and pack the Supreme Court to 16 Justices why? To block Republicans from power, as the first step to single-party rule. As in dictatorship.

  • Everybody says stupid things everyday. Even the right. Then, they weave up an analogy and make it dumber and a bigger issue. Eventually the garbage just gets thrown back into the house.

  • Yeah sure. Until it aids the democrats then they'll want it back. What a bunch of cry baby loosers. There are a lot of people in this country that do not live in the few big cities that would apparently decide the fate of all. Guess they hate this country so much that they want war. Cause this is how you get war.

  • Someone ask this treasonous brain dead nitwit bartender AOC to go back to trying to fit a round peg into a square hole ASAP!

  • Robert Shaffer you need to grow up and stop judging people on the basis of their looks. I find the least attractive people are the first ones to criticize how others look cause it makes them feel better about themselves. I don’t hate kelly Conway or Ann Coulter cause there ugly but there disgusting human beings who spew out nonsense for a living. Your president who you worship is an absolute freak show who embarrasses is on a global every day and it’s getting worse, only his cult following think otherwise

  • Electoral college was fine when Obama ran but Hillary lost so now its racist 🤦🏼‍♂️AOC probably thinks people of color can’t afford to go to a Electoral College.

  • The dems are atheists and play by no rules except how much can I get or survival of the fittest and what they think is Darwin. Repubs need to wise up and know not to throw pearls to the swine. You give pigs pig slop and they love it. Why is it that communism always couples with atheism? why?

  • Steve Sullivan says:

    if AOC says the earth is flat and the sky purple. We must believe each word that comes from her mouth. Do not question her. This woman is transforming America as are her followers.

  • her argument is stupid.. The Electoral college works today..and there is no slavery in the US. Thus to claim the EC is racists… is a fallacy.

  • We are being scammed to allow an immense horde to achieve a coup so that the USA is stopped from making a comeback from the marxists five decades of shrieking about how we are unfair to identity politics ruling us!
    They nearly succeeded, but refuse still to go back to being unhappy Socialists after that fool who had the brazen callousness to claim the US Constitution was just a piece of paper!
    That demonstrated their twisted minds real good!

  • SHE IS THE A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF A CREATURE WHO NEEDS PROFESSIONAL HELP. SHE IS A VERY SICK UNBALANCED CREATURE OF NATURE. SHE MAKES US WANT TO VOMIT.

  • Mary Giannoble says:

    Please move to a socialist country where u belong you make Americans cringe u sick evil thing not even human and your hate for Israel is a dirty shame please go away had enough of your lies and hatred for USA just stop talking your extremely stupid ignorant and insignificant

  • Patricia Hagler says:

    AOC is about as stupid as they come. It's plain as day she doesn't know anything about how the electoral college works. They just don't like it because it the fair way to elect our President.

  • AliensAnonymous says:

    It is a scam. Race has nothing to do with it. The Founding Fathers thought the masses were too fckin stupid to be counted on. They weren't wrong.

  • The Media makes her a star. She is irrelevant to our country but Fox and all of the others need a story so they prop this moron up. She will not get re-elected anyway.

  • Daniel Mitchell says:

    The only reason the EC was created was to appease slavers who wanted more political representation from their southern states. Remember that the EC was made before the midwest even existed.

  • cortez is as stupid as a box of rocks. she is the piece of clay the potter thru out because she was useless. we need to throw her out.

  • Independent voter says:

    AOC is reporting LIVE from the Electoral College? She speaks as if there is actually a building called the "Electoral College". Can you say dumbass? She's still trying to figure out how to use her garbage disposal. This moron bimbo wants to do away with the Electoral College, because she likes the popular vote.

  • Mountain Teacher says:

    AOC, the first to scream for equality when it comes to women, or minorities, but when it comes to smaller states, they don't matter.

  • Lmao… Man rightwing gets mad over the stupidest stuff. Lmao… Funny how Republicans want to change immigration law's Which requires a constitutional change, conservative Hypocrites at their finest.

  • thevoiceofresonn says:

    That was disgusting. Sure is an absolute snob and thinks she's better than anyone. Its racist and is disgraceful.

  • thevoiceofresonn says:

    Democtats used to be the farmers of America. She just lost the Democtats all the votes of as the fafrmers. She just got Trunp elected.

  • If you pander enough, you can also get to the White House. I'm sure there are some GOP congressmen that were once waiters in a restaurant too. Electoral College is NOT racist, you just have to game the system like Trump did. This is not a country where every single vote counts. I've been complaining about the Electoral College for the past several decades now. Trump is nothing special, complained way before his time.

  • THIS IDIOT is a complete and utter FAILURE of a human, I bet she has a maid to tie her shoes or just uses velcro. She is USELESS and is allowed to LIE AND KEEP LYING shes a hideous laughing stock of Congress. FORCIBLY REMOVE HER BEFORE HER LYING SELF PUTS AMERICANS IN HARMS WAY WITH DIMWIT LEGISLATURE!
