Far left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is having a bad week and she’s pointing a lot of fingers. Everyone is to blame for something except her, apparently.
Her staff is to blame for the disastrous roll out of the Green New Deal.

AOC blames aide for ‘farting cows’ Green New Deal document
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., blamed an unnamed aide for the document that was sent out to the media and posted on her congressional website during the disastrous February rollout of her Green New Deal climate plan.
The freshman congresswoman told MSNBC Friday she didn’t accept any responsibility for the widely-ridiculed six-page document.
“I definitely had a staffer that had a really bad day at work,” she said.

When it comes to her awful poll numbers, same thing. It has nothing to do with her, it’s all that right wing media out there.

AOC: Let’s Face It, My Polling Is Bad Because Of The Far-Right Propaganda Machine
If all she had said here was that her numbers are lopsided because righty media covers her more than lefty media does, that’d be fair enough. I made that point myself yesterday in writing about the new Quinnipiac poll. The amount of coverage she’s gotten on Fox News is astonishing. Go figure that a pol who gets more coverage from opposition news outlets than from her own is going to end up net negative in favorability.
But she’s saying a lot more than that, isn’t she? And not for the first time.

It’s almost as though there is a directed + concerted far-right propaganda machine with a whole cable news channel, and a dark-money internet operation propped up by the Mercers et al dedicated to maligning me & stoking nat’l division, reported on by @JaneMayerNYer or something https://t.co/HChBp04c8W

When “centrists” care more about the GOP base than the Dem base, bigotry gets legitimized.
This is *the* playbook. GOP does it w/ virtually every Dem figure who isn’t a white male: otherize, demonize + splinter.
It’s vital that we adapt & dismantle this approach, not cow to it. https://t.co/dKlzflqZVn

She needs to take some responsibility and look in the mirror.
