Socialist love money – especially spending other people’s.
In this case, the wealth could’ve been distributed a little more equitably. (The Daily Wire)
In a photo shoot for Interview magazine, Ocasio-Cortez was pictured wearing a $3,500 outfit as she posed with construction workers. She was decked out in a Gabriela Hearst blazer ($1,990), Gabriela Hearst pants ($890), and some Monolo Blahnik shoes ($625).
The story — along with the above graphic, posted on Twitter by @LunarLemonade — hit the pages of Reddit, prompting plenty of responses.
“I’ve never met a socialist who had the faintest idea of redistributing a penny of their own money. They’re all about taking all the time,” said one Redittor.
“As a barmaid she took all $500 of the tips after a holiday night at the bar, stiffing the waitresses with only $50,” said another. “She is only a socialist if she can take as much as she wants and leave the scraps for everyone else.”
Ocasio-Cortez has portrayed herself as having grown up in the rough-and-tumble neighborhoods of the Bronx when in actuality she spent her childhood in wealthy Westchester County.
