Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Now Says She Was Only Joking About The World Ending In 12 Years

In January of 2019, far left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that the world would end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.

Ocasio-Cortez: ‘World will end in 12 years’ if climate change not addressed

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday said she thinks that there is an urgency needed in addressing man-made climate change, warning that it will “destroy the planet” in a dozen years if humans do not address the issue, no matter the cost.

During an interview at the MLK Now event in New York City honoring Martin Luther King Jr., Ocasio-Cortez told interviewer Ta-Nehisi Coates that younger Americans are looking for bold solutions to climate change, and are not concerned about the cost.

“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’ ” Ocasio-Cortez asked Coates.

Here is the video of her saying this:

Now that this is being used to mock her, she claims she was only kidding and you’re stupid if you didn’t get the joke.

Just Kidding, Says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s newest defense of her wacky ideas is that they’re just “dry humor” and “sarcasm.” We should take her seriously but not literally, I guess.

Ocasio-Cortez got roasted over the weekend after saying her tax-the-rich scheme would only apply to “like ten people.” Sunday she checked in to say that it was just a joke, and moreover her previous remark about the world ending in 12 years was also a joke. Moreover, anyone who didn’t get that these were jokes is an idiot.

See her tweet below:

If you go back and watch the video of her remarks, it sure doesn’t sound like she’s kidding.

What she’s doing now looks like damage control.
