AOC Pretends to be a Scientist, Gets Owned by Ted Cruz

Posted: Mar 02, 2020 7:30 AM

It began when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to Twitter to lament the fact that Vice President Mike Pence was tapped to head up the nation's response to the coronavirus. 

Sen. Ted Cruz couldn't resist. The Texas senator decided to test Ocasio-Cortez's strict adherence to scientific knowledge by asking her to explain "what exactly is a Y chromosome," a question the congresswoman never bothered to address in her flurry of tweets in response to Sen. Cruz. 

But Ocasio-Cortez did tout her scientific expertise by pointing to the internship she did for Sen. Kennedy, her "dual major" in international relations and economics, and her work as an "Educational Director for a national organization." All things that had absolutely nothing to do with science.  

But the icing on the cake was the picture Ocasio-Cortez tweeted of herself standing before what appeared to be a school science fair project, setting Senator Cruz up for the perfect "clapback," as scientific expert AOC would put it. 

Never change, AOC.
