MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell is either uninformed, or is a flat out liar.
She recently said on the air that no members of ‘the Squad’ which includes Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and others, are socialists. That’s just flat out wrong.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is openly a Democratic Socialists, and all of them were supported by the Justice Democrats, a group which promotes Democratic Socialism.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
MSNBC’s Mitchell: None of Trump’s Targets Are Socialists
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell defended four Democratic congresswomen attacked by President Donald Trump by falsely claiming that none of them were socialists on Thursday.
In a Wednesday speech, Trump attacked by name Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (D. Mass.), Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) and defended a tweet insinuating that the four minority women should “go back” to their country of origin. Only Omar is actually an immigrant, the other three are American-born citizens.
MSNBC covered live a press conference from Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy defending the president, in which he said Trump was waging “a battle over a socialist issue and the socialist Democrats, that’s one that he’s taken up even in the State of the Union, he promised that this country will never have socialism here.”…
“There’s not a single member of these congressional representatives who are avowed socialists. We don’t know where that’s coming from other than opposition research,” she insisted.
Watch the video:
It’s amazing that someone in the media could say something so wrong and not be challenged.
Andrea Mitchell just said on MSNBC that none of the squad are socialists and that she doesn’t “know where that is coming from,” that it’s a “Republican talking point.” Never mind that AOC said capitalism is irredeemable and that socialism is the answer.

Andrea Mitchell is a clueless moron. The speech and actions of AOC's squad show that they are Socialist. Denying does not make it untrue.

Will she issue a correction? Don’t hold your breath.
