[Ed. – Is she for real? Maybe it’s high time someone told Mitchell that Ocasio-Cortez is a self-avowed socialist.]
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell was baffled on Thursday by the fact that the word “socialist” was among the most searched terms at Merriam-Webster during President Donald Trump‘s rally, during which he bashed Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. Not that people needed a dictionary for the term, but that they were interested in it at all, since it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the congresswomen, according to Mitchell.
“The President did call out these congresswomen by name,” said Mitchell, introducing the tweet from Merriam-Webster which listed socialism among their top searches.
“Now first of all, none of these members of Congress are socialists, but that is the way the Republican leadership wants to frame this election face-off,” said Mitchell, essentially calling this fake news.
“There’s not a single member of these congressional representatives who are avowed socialists,” said Mitchell, “so I don’t know where that is coming from other than opposition research.”
