[Ed. – Asked whether the would be clowns on the tour, she replied, Yes, I’ll be there.]
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is launching a nationwide tour to promote her impractical Green New Deal.
But instead of an overwhelming celebration of the “15-city tour + a 50-State campaign,” many just wondered how the self-proclaimed Democratic socialist from New York planned to pull it off.
The freshman lawmaker tweeted an announcement of the tour Thursday, noting the Sunrise Movement which bills itself as “an army of young people” advocating political action on climate change.
[L]aunching a 15-city tour while pushing legislation that calls for net-zero emissions while making air travel obsolete seems contradictory, and actually defies logic.
Let’s travel around the country leaving a huge carbon footprint to promote doing the opposite. Brilliant!
