With the critical midterm elections on Nov. 6 nearing, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cranking up the divisive rhetoric.
While speaking with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos on his show “Real America,” the New York socialist said it’s a “no-brainer” that President Donald Trump should be impeached.
“I mean, yeah. To me, it’s a no-brainer,” Ocasio-Cortez replied to Ramos.
“Well, I believe that he has violated the law. Violated potentially many laws, whether it’s the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution because he keeps his businesses open that foreign actors kind of participate in financial transactions with. Whether it’s what we are seeing with potentially illegal buyouts of campaign, you know, FEC violations of women that he is trying to silence,” she added.
Ocasio-Cortez went to say impeaching Trump should not be “beyond the pale,” and then offered a bizarre reference to former President Bill Clinton, which has no relevance to Trump at all.
“But overall, you look at the bar that the Republicans held for impeaching Bill Clinton and somehow impeaching Donald Trump is supposed to be beyond the pale? It seems ridiculous to me,” she added.
Clinton was impeached in the U.S. House of Representatives for perjury and lying under oath about his later admitted affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Conversely, Trump has not been charged with a single crime nor has he made any admission of guilt, particularity with the numerous things the socialist spouted off to Ramos.
Unsurprisingly, this is hardly the first time Ocasio-Cortez has made bizarre and controversial comments.
On Wednesday, New York Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent out a bizarre email demanding Democrats “push back” against Republicans and Trump, who she referred to as “cold-hearted monsters.”
In a very lengthy email, the self-described socialist vowed to protect voters from “white supremacist forces” that she claims are terrorizing Americans under Trump.
“Six days from now, we can defeat the brutal white supremacist forces of anti-Semitism, anti-immigrant nativism, and racism. We can hold accountable the cold-hearted monsters who have repeatedly attacked our health care,” the email stated.
Later in the email, Ocasio-Cortez argued it’s time to push back against white supremacists, bigots, and Islamophobes, which could be a reference to Trump.
“Our chance to push back against white supremacist forces across our nation, against the xenophobes who are militarizing the border, against the bigots who seek to erase our transgender families, against the apologists for sexual assault and the Islamophobes who sow hate to divide us,” the email stated.
This email has so many issues including telling voters defeating the Republicans means defeating anti-Semitism, calling people who disagree on healthcare ‘cold-hearted monsters,’ and more.

Last month, the Democrat darling argued in front of a near empty room that the blueprint for defeating “global warming” should be the same as the one used to fight Adolf Hitler.
“The last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II and so we’ve been here before, and we have blueprint of doing this before,” Cortez said.
“None of these things are new ideas,” she continued. “What we have is an existential threat in the context of war. We had a direct existential threat with another nation. This time it was Nazi Germany and the Axis who explicitly named the United States as an enemy.”
Prior to that, the socialist darling said her plan for Congress, when she likely arrives next year, will be to divide people; or, as she put it, “segmenting” them.
When asked about her ideas, she replied, “I think a lot of it has to do with changing our strategy around governance.”
“It’s a different kind of strategy, and what it is is really about organizing— and, and really thinking about that word ‘organizing,’ segmenting people, being strategic in their action,” she revealed.
Ocasio-Cortez has a long history of making bizarre comments, and she has even hinted at taking her socialist ideas with her to mount a presidential run in the future.
