(FreedomJournal.com) – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offers a seemingly endless supply of dumb quotes, and this time she has truly outdone herself. The radical socialist New York representative cited her high school science fair during a Twitter spat with Republican Senator Ted Cruz, prompting a whole lot of criticism.
In a Twitter exchange that began with Ocasio-Cortez criticizing a decision made by President Donald Trump to name Vice President Mike Pence the leader of the government’s coronavirus task force, Ted Cruz fought back. AOC claimed that Pence didn’t believe in science, to which Cruz responded by asking her about her views on biological gender.
“Mike Pence literally does not believe in science,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
“It is utterly irresponsible to put him in charge of US coronavirus response as the world sits on the cusp of a pandemic,” she added. With no evidence for her claim, of course.

This decision could cost people their lives. Pence’s past decisions already have. https://t.co/NhMPOusOWm

Cruz quickly responded, asking, “As you are speaking as the oracle of science, tell us, what exactly is a Y chromosome?”
Cruz’s comments went viral, with tens of thousands of retweets and likes. His reply referenced the increasingly radical view of many Democrats, including AOC, about transgender men and women. Many Democrats now claim there is no such thing as a biological man or woman, or that a biological man is the same as a biological woman.

Amazingly, AOC fought back by listing off her “credentials,” which included her participation in a…high school science fair.
an Intel global finalist,
a fmr multi-year intern for Sen. Kennedy,
a cum laude dual major in Economics & International Relations,
a fmr Educational Director for national organization,
Who to you is “just a bartender,”
And also your colleague.https://t.co/9ktAgXFXDE

The New York congresswoman was mocked relentlessly, and rightly so. Not only did she make wild and unfair claims about one of the most respectable men in American politics, but she went on to back up those completely baseless claims by referencing her involvement with a high school science fair.
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro nailed it when he said, “She makes it sound like she cured cancer. She came in second in a high school science fair. At age 30, she should probably update her resume.”
