Appearing on New York’s “Ebro in the Early Morning” on Hot 97, Ocasio-Cortez talked about the “stern” appearance on her face throughout Trump’s State of the Union address, which triggered Peggy Noonan to state that the Democratic-Socialist looked “sullen, teenaged and at a loss.”

After blasting DC political leaders for caring “about civility more than they appreciate mankind” and the Trump administration for not knowing the number of prohibited immigrant children have died or been separated, Ocasio-Cortez stated, of Trump: “And he’s going to stand there and say, like, ‘make America excellent,’ and I’m supposed to clap for that? No, I’m not going to. I’m not going to clap for that. This is, like, not a video game. It’s not a video game”
She likewise said Trump, who she has said is a “racist,” is an “authoritarian” who is targeting ladies and individuals of color.
” They are surrounding individuals’s rights,” Ocasio-Cortez said of the Trump administration. “They are targeting people of color.”
