[Ed. – The sky is falling!]
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was dealt a harsh reality check by a meteorologist who fact-checked her “climate crisis” warning after she reacted to a tornado warning in the D.C. area.
The New York Democrat reportedly posted comments on her Instagram account on Thursday after the Washington, D.C. area came under a tornado warning. “This is crazy,” the freshman congresswoman, who has predicted that the climate change emergency leaves humanity only a dozen years to live if it is not solved, said in a livestream video she posted.
“There’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out,” she said.
She followed her video with comments about the “climate crisis” and referred to “casual tornadoes” in her post.
“The climate crisis is real y’all,” she said. “Guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country?”
But meteorologist Ryan Maue quickly schooled the 29-year-old lawmaker, explaining that was she was experiencing was “just the weather.”
