AOC: I'm Going to 'Run Train' on the Progressive Agenda

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) used bizarre, sexual slang to describe how she will advance the progressive agenda.

Discussing her conservative critics in a lengthy Washington Post interview, Ocasio-Cortez said the GOP is out of ammunition to attack her with.

“Dude, you’re all out of bullets, you’re all out of bombs, you’re all out of all this stuff,” the democratic socialist said, referencing a fake photo circulating some have claimed is her in a bath tub. 

“What have you got left?” she asked. “I’m six days into the term, and you already used all your ammo. So enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda.”

The Post: Why would they see you personally as a threat?

Ocasio-Cortez: Because I fight back. I don’t know what they say, but I think they are attracted to conflict. They need a foil. I don’t think they see that they’re losing the war. They’re making all these battles, but they’re losing the war. Because they’re playing old-school politics, like, “Oh, I’m sorry, you think that faking a nude photo is going to take a woman down in 2019? Think again, brother.”

The Post: How did you feel when that hit yesterday?

Ocasio-Cortez: I was surprised and I was annoyed because it was a new tack. They’ve been for a very long time focusing on taking quotes out of context or manipulating them or making it seem as though I said things that I didn’t say. This was different in that it was an outright fraudulent thing. You can tell that they’re getting into hysterics because now you’re getting into my actual body, which is definitely crossing a level, definitely crossing a line.

I also think it’s encouraging because this is my sixth day in Congress and they’re out of all their artillery. The nude is supposed to be like the bazooka. You know, like, “We’re going to take her down.” Dude, you’re all out of bullets, you’re all out of bombs, you’re all out of all this stuff. What have you got left? I’m six days into the term, and you already used all your ammo. So enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda. (WaPo)

As conservative commentator Ben Shapiro points out, she’s from the Bronx, so it’s hard to believe she doesn’t know what “run train”—or to gangbang, according to Urban Dictionary—really means.

Or did she?
