For someone whose not very informed, she sure has a lot to say…
As this coronavirus outbreak begins to spread throughout the United States, AOC had some pretty offensive things to say about the Vice President.
According to The Hill, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) had a total meltdown over President Trump appointing Vice President Mike Pence to head up efforts to contain the coronavirus by saying, “Mike Pence literally does not believe in science.”
“It is utterly irresponsible to put him in charge of US coronavirus response as the world sits on the cusp of a pandemic,” AOC furiously wrote on twitter. “This decision could cost people their lives. Pence’s past decisions already have.”
Then to make matters worse, AOC shared an article which accused Pence of failing to maintain HIV outbreaks in his home state writing, “As governor, Pence’s science denial contributed to one of the worst HIV outbreaks in Indiana’s history. He is not a medical doctor. He is not a health expert. He is not qualified nor positioned in any way to protect our public health.”
