Knowles: Now AOC Is Concerned About Facts

We already know Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi's thoughts on Donald Trump's speech to the nation regarding the border, but how about the true beating heart of the Democrat Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? She says the people advocating for a border wall are less American than the immigrants trying to get in. Michael Knowles took exception to that assessment on Wednesday's episode of "The Michael Knowles Show."

In an interview with MSNBC, the New York congresswoman said that "the women and children on that border that are trying to seek refuge and seek opportunity in the United States of America with nothing but the shirt on their backs are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be."

"First of all, she’s complaining about President Trump getting the facts wrong," Knowles said. "Two days ago, she was explaining how you shouldn’t be factually correct, how it could be morally wrong to be factually correct. She said that in a tweet. So she’s really changing her tune, but that’s always what she does."

He pointed out the amount of airtime Ocasio-Cortez receives not just from the mainstream media, but also on social media, where she has gained a small following.

"Now, she says untrue things with such confidence that they’re actually somewhat convincing," Knowles said. "So she’s saying that illegal alien criminals trying to cross into our country illegally are more American than American citizens. What does that even mean? But because she’s saying it with such confidence, it sounds like it means something, and they do this all the time."

He continued: "I mean this is another example of having crossed messaging. On one hand, America is a terrible, awful, racist, bigoted, sexist place that has caused wickedness and evil all throughout the world. On the other hand, these illegal aliens are more American than Americans."

Knowles added, "But of course they’re just trying to say both things, they will just speak out of both sides of their mouth, whatever is most convenient they will say. 'American' can be the worst adjective in the world, it can denote the most evil that you can imagine, or it can be the most wonderful thing. But again, only when it’s referring to non-Americans. Anyway, she’s getting very good as a press secretary. This is a little bit worrisome, and it’s worrisome for Pelosi."

Video and transcript below:

Our favorite socialist from that ritzy town in northern Westchester, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, gave a response to Trump's speech on MSNBC.

Ocasio-Cortez: "In the actual address their was falsehood after falsehood, and we have to make sure that we get our facts straight. Everyday immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than native born Americans. And not only that, but the women and children on that border that are trying to seek refuge and seek opportunity in the United States of America with nothing but the shirt on their backs are acting more American than any person who seeks to keep them out ever will be."

Where to begin. First of all, she’s complaining about President Trump getting the facts wrong. Two days ago, she was explaining how you shouldn’t be factually correct, how it could be morally wrong to be factually correct. She said that in a tweet. So she’s really changing her tune, but that’s always what she does. The first observation, Nancy Pelosi has a really tough case here on her hands, because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks that she’s the Speaker of the House, and for all intents and purposes, she is. She is right now a leading national Democrat. She’s the brightest star of the incoming Democratic Congressmen and she’s causing real headaches for Nancy Pelosi. Congress members very often are just glorified press secretaries. Very few of them know anything about public policy. Very few of them are interested in crafting public policy. Most of them just want to go on television and run for a higher office. So, that’s what they do, they just go on television.

This is sort of the Schumer model, though Schumer to his credit does have a lot of acumen in navigating the holes of government since he’s been in it his entire life. So Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is spending all of her time on TV. When she’s not on TV, she’s on Instagram Live, when she’s not on Instagram Live, she’s doing videos on Facebook. It just on and on, she’s putting herself out there. But what she’s saying isn’t true. The trouble is that it sort of sounds like she’s saying true things. She’s getting much better at the camera, you can see this even just in her eyes. Her eyes are less buggy and weird than they used to be. I don’t know, she’s just getting much smoother. And she can say things with such confidence now. She didn’t used to be able to do this. She used to be able to say, “I’m not the expert, ha ha ha, sorry”. Now, she says untrue things with such confidence that they’re actually somewhat convincing. So she’s saying that illegal alien criminals trying to cross into our country illegally are more American than American citizens. What does that even mean? But because she’s saying it with such confidence it sounds like it means something, and they do this all the time.

I mean this is another example of having crossed messaging. On one hand, America is a terrible, awful, racist, bigoted, sexist place that has caused wickedness and evil all throughout the world. On the other hand, these illegal aliens are more American than Americans. Could they keep them out, please? Don’t, no, don’t let them in, they sound like terrible people. But of course, they’re just trying to say both things, they will just speak out of both sides of their mouth, whatever is most convenient they will say. “American” can be the worst adjective in the world, it can denote the most evil that you can imagine, or it can be the most wonderful thing. But again, only when it’s referring to non-Americans. Anyway, she’s getting very good as a press secretary. This is a little bit worrisome, and it’s worrisome for Pelosi.
