Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s penchant — and passion — for using childlike locutions, like tippy-top, was on display again last week when she was asked to comment about fellow freshman Rashida Tlaib’s own language. Specifically she was asked about Tlaib’s off-color description of the president as a “motherf*cker.” AOC’s reaction? “Rashida got into a little bit of trouble for saying a boo-boo word.”
A “boo-boo” word?
The — er, “synonym” — came up during her appearance on Showtime’s new talk show, “Desus & Mero,” where she was equally unfazed by one of her host’s dropping an MF bomb.
Rep. Ilhan Omar was also on the show, and she, too, was asked to react to Tlaib’s inappropriate language. Like Ocasio-Cortez — who advised Tlaib in an email “not to worry about it, I mean who cares?” — Omar defended the Tlaib’s gutter mouth by using whataboutism:
The double standard in that is that, that guy [Trump], never gets in trouble for all of the boo-boo words he uses.
Ocasio-Cortez agreed. “That’s right,” she said, claiming the freshman women are simply trying to “[keep] it real with people.”
Ocasio-Cortez is perpetually dinged for making mind-numbingly stupid remarks on almost a daily basis. Omar, for her part, is consistently “apologizing” for the anti-Semitic and ill-informed comments that come out of her mouth. And Tlaib, of course, had her moment in the sun one day into her tenure.
You have to give them, like, credit though. They certainly, like, keep it real by, like, watching each other’s backs.
