GRANT STINCHFIELD (HOST): So the socialist darling of the left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is back in the news saying ridiculous things that prove she has no business in politics. She is throwing a tantrum that people keep calling her out for her insane and impossible ideas. So naturally, in an Instagram Live where she is putting together IKEA furniture, she defends her stupid comments by making this absurd accusation about what’s going on at the border.
STINCHFIELD: So many things to talk about here, let’s start with the most outrageous and the most disingenuous and the most maniacal comment in there, that we’re injecting children with drugs? Is she kidding? That she somehow thinks the federal government is actively being cruel to these kids on purpose and filling their bodies with drugs? That is an insane comment from a member of the United States Congress. Now, she says that comment in the same video where she is declaring that she says stupid things often. In the same video she's saying that it doesn’t matter that she says stupid things as long as she corrects them, she goes and says one of the most insane things I’ve ever heard her say. That the federal government is injecting migrant children with drugs. There is no evidence of that happening anywhere, ever. This is the problem with AOC, the mistakes that she makes over and over and over again are on a national stage. When she says something that is wrong, that is a lie to the American people. She is on the mainstage. When you are on the mainstage, there is no time for errors. Truthfully, I don’t think she is even making the mistakes, I think she’s doing it on purpose. She’s lying to all of you on purpose. And I promise you, the comment about the federal government injecting migrants with drugs is on purpose. She knows that is not going on, but she wants to rile up her base. So this is what we get. She ought to go back and get a job at IKEA instead of Congress. Make furniture there instead of make laws in Washington, we’d all be better off for it.
