Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s SOTU Sour Expression Provokes Republican Response
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)
Andy Borowitz: “Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s facial expression during the State of the Union address came under continued attack from Republicans on Thursday, with the former House Speaker John Boehner joining the chorus of disapproval.
‘When I saw her with that pained expression on her face, I couldn’t believe my eyes,’ Boehner said. ‘It was like nothing I had ever seen before in my life.’
The former Speaker said that Ocasio-Cortez broke his ‘No. 1 rule’ of reacting to a State of the Union speech: ‘No matter what the President is saying, be sure to look cheerful and upbeat at all times.’
‘I didn’t always agree with what President Obama had to say over the years, but I always kept a smile on my face,’ he said. ‘I think if the congresswoman went back and looked at video of me and my fellow-Republicans during the Obama speeches, she could learn a lot about maintaining a non-stop happy facial expression.’” Andy Borowitz, The New Yorker
Actually Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s facial expressions reveals quite lucidly what many of us feel in listening to the garbage spewed forth by Trump and supported by Republicans with nary a word out of fear. AOC portrays what we feel . . . disgust.
When they focus on your facial expressions, attire, dance steps etc., you are winning. Particularly, if you are 29 years old and a freshman member of Congress.
I suggest a bag Mr Speaker if that is your “happy” face. I am sure you told Joe Wilson “Joe, if you are going to stand up and tell the President “You Lie” at least smile when you do it”

I dunno–maybe she was more incensed that members of her own party were cheering and clapping when Trump was attacking “socialism.”
Karl must have watched the version of the speech heavily edited by the crew at Fox and Friends!
Karl tends to reflect Fox.
AOC…… wait til she “makes” her first million.
AOC is more politic than Warren (or Gabbard MSM all over Warren DNA), has not crossed the war press.
Either the Republican obsession with AOC is compulsive, or it is strategic. The question is, will making AOC and her politics the face of the Democratic Party help or hurt in 2020? I’m guessing that some think it will help Republicans.
AOC will be another face of the Dems and more than likely not the face. In my state, our new Rep believes she can cross the aisle and seek bipartisan agreement with Repubs. It may be true in some cases; however, it will not succeed in other. She is neutral on bullet-spewing-weapons as an owner herself. That is not going to fly in a society which is shooting themselves up as well as the community around them. Responsible ownership went out the door. She also has a slim edge so she is playing both sides of the road.
I believe AOC says much of what I want to hear and others do not as well as Repubs.
