Libs Absolutely Freak as Conservatives Circulate 'Hypocritical' Photo of AOC & Staffer at Dinner

Combined Shape

After far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez railed hard against “farting cows” and beef, she was caught at dinner with a staffer who was eating a juicy hamburger.

Ocasio-Cortez was widely mocked for her attack on “farting cows” in her Green New Deal, but she doubled down on her stance last week on Showtime’s “Desus & Mero” late-night show.

The self-identified socialist explained that she wanted to “take a look at” factory farming and went on to suggest against eating beef.

“But it’s to say, ‘listen, we gotta address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real,'” Ocasio-Cortez said.

But apparently the socialist’s own staff doesn’t follow her advice.

On Tuesday, conservatives on Twitter began circulating a photo of Ocasio-Cortez at dinner with a hamburger-clutching staffer. Fox News identified Ocasio-Cortez’ companion as her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti. The restaurant was unidentified.

Instead of addressing the blatant hypocrisy here, Twitter liberals, including Ocasio-Cortez herself, had a meltdown and slammed the photo as “creepy.”

But the representative’s complaints would have more weight if liberals applied them to their own supporters.

Does this show hypocrisy by Ocasio-Cortez's supporters?

In fact, the whole outcry just proves the left’s hypocrisy even further because they’re known to ambush politicians in restaurants while their representatives cheer it on.

In comparison, a simple photograph is harmless.

As conservative journalist Caleb Hull pointed out, the left has “endorsed confronting people in the Trump administration anywhere in public and has run them out of restaurants repeatedly.”

Sometimes the conservative outrage toward Ocasio-Cortez gets a bit out of hand, such as the “controversy” over an old video of her dancing.

But this instance isn’t misplaced outrage. Ocasio-Cortez wants to control what Americans eat and disrupt an important industry in rural America, but her own staffer is unwilling to comply with her advice.

With many ridiculous far-left policy proposals, Ocasio-Cortez and her staff are following the old hypocritical liberal practice of “it’s good for thee, but not for me.”
