On Saturday night, National Review writer and podcast host Katherine Timpf ripped into media darling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for the socialist’s widely criticized Green New Deal, which Timpf categorized as evidence that Ocasio-Cortez has completely "lost her marbles" and is “living in banana land."
Timpf ruthlessly mocked the New York socialist for recently branding herself as "the boss" for merely coming up with the flawed plan, which would reportedly cost some $650,000 per U.S. household to finance.
“I just think AOC has just completely lost her marbles. I think she’s living in banana land. Earlier this week, she called herself ‘the boss’ for coming up with the Green New Deal,” started in Timpf. “How are you the boss for coming up with a plan that doesn’t work? Are you sure that the Green New Deal is not what you’re putting in your pipe and smoking everyday?”
“I don’t understand. I can come up with plenty of plans that don’t work,” offered Timpf. “How about we fly around on unicorns instead of airplanes? How about instead of gasoline we use fairy dust we get from Tinker Bell? How about we get Harry Potter to come over and wizard-away all the emissions from the cow farts she’s so worried about?”
“See, I just came up with three plans that don’t work. Does that make me the triple boss?” she mockingly asked.
Timpf went on to tell host Greg Gutfeld that she’s uninterested in living like Laura Ingalls Wilder's “Little House” and will not “eat like some little f***ing bunny.”
Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez dismissed criticisms of her Green New Deal because at least she is “trying” and that makes her “the boss.” Or something.
“I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago, and it's creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried,” said the rep. “Because no one else has even tried. So people are like, 'Oh it's unrealistic. Oh it's vague. Oh it doesn't address this little minute thing,'" she added. "And I'm like, 'You try. You do it. Cuz you're not. Cuz you're not. So, until you do it, I'm the boss.' How about that?”
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro called the Green New Deal “one of the stupidest documents ever written.” Shapiro wrote:
How bad is the Green New Deal paper? Putting aside the fact that, as written, it would receive a C+ in any high school English class, it essentially articulates a magical world in which the skies rain chocolate, the world is powered by unicorn farts, and AOC dances through the gumdrop meadows to Lisztomania. The proposal calls for the United States to be free of carbon emissions within 10 years without the use of nuclear power. It calls for every building in the United States to be replaced or retrofitted in green fashion. It calls for universal healthcare, free college education, the replacement of airplanes with high-speed trains, charging stations “everywhere” (this is the sort of exactness the proposal contains), replacement of “every combustion-engine vehicle,” government-provided jobs, family and medical leave, vacations, retirement security, and the abolition of “farting cows.” It also calls for total “economic security” for anyone “unable or unwilling to work.”
Even Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) quickly distanced herself from the plan, condescendingly offering: “it’s enthusiastic and I appreciate the enthusiasm.”
