"Stop Me If You've Heard This One"

Post by Riddick » 05-16-2019 02:27 AM

Everybody likes a good joke! Someone should explain that to AOC, so she knows why no one's laughing!...

On Sunday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said she was joking around when she claimed the world was going to end in 12 years if we do not take serious action against Climate Change, a declaration she's been widely criticized over.

The 29-year-old socialist mocked the Republican Party for taking her claim about the end of the world seriously, which she suggested was a combination of "dry humor + sarcasm."

Complicating Ocasio-Cortez’s recent suggestion that the world-ending claim was a mere joke, the elected Democrat has repeated the claim time and again and even collaborated with The Intercept to create a video centered around the charge.

"Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline: 12 years left to cut emissions in half," she captioned a tweet promoting the video, last month. FULL STORY

Doesn't she know when a comedian's bit bombs, explaining why it's 'funny' doesn't make it any less of a flop? Also, "sarcasm" is the opposite of what's said. So, instead of having 12 years, we’ve got . . . a lot of time? As in, if there’s no huge end of world emergency we don’t need WWII moral equivalent policies like the GND?

Still, what a joker, putting everyone on the way she does: Is she kidding? Is she serious? Is she an idiot? At the rate she's going, with a bit more spit and polish to her act, she could be her generation's Andy Kaufman.
