Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fires back at Peggy Noonan for SOTU criticism

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fires back at Peggy Noonan for SOTU criticism

"The average National Football League salary is $2.1 million, so most players would never experience a 70% rate", Ocasio-Cortez accurately fired back, retweeting Crenshaw.

Archila said she would be "honored" to attend and would sport the pin.

Cementing her commitment to believing survivors of sexual assault, Ocasio-Cortez invited Ana María Archila, the NY activist who went viral for confronting Republican senator Jeff Flake in an elevator during the Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh.

Ocasio-Cortez lamented the president had "no plan".

Speaking at a Chanukah event previous year, Ocasio-Cortez revealed her ancestors were "Sephardic Jews who fled to Puerto Rico", according to an article in the Washington Post.

After the speech, Ocasio-Cortez told ABC News what the moment felt like when the president's words and all eyes seemed to turn toward her. Trump's comments, she said, stiffened her resolve to push socialist policies, such as her proposal to increase tax marginal rates on the very wealthy. According to CBS News, the Center for Popular Democracy Action's co-executive director had bravely recounted her own experience with sexual assault in an effort to persuade the senator to not vote in favor of Kavanaugh.

CNN broadcast the entire confrontation, and Flake ultimately joined a compromise that forced an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh's record. I told it because I recognized in Dr. Ford's story that she is telling the truth. After the investigation, Flake ultimately voted for Kavanaugh's confirmation.

"I had to ask myself, is this a campaign stop or is this a State of the Union?" she said on an MSNBC post-speech special. What you are doing is allowing someone who actually violated a woman to sit on the Supreme Court'.

Tablet journalist Yair Rosenberg wrote, "Imagine that 85% of Muslims polled said they thought a particular European leader was Islamophobic". The poignant expression on her face and her beautifully crafted white clothing, which women in the event wore to symbolically send the message that they are reclaiming the power of women, made her message loud and clear, she doesn't buy what Trump is saying.

The tyro lawmaker replied that the conversation was "lovely" and that she and Corbyn shared "a great hope in the peace, prosperity, and justice that everyday people can create when we uplift one another across class, race, and identity both at home and overseas".
