Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes late President Ronald Regan was a racist.
The former bartender turned lawmaker was at SXSW in Austin, Texas over the weekend where she gave her opinion on Reagan, saying that the term “welfare queen” was a term rooted in racism. The socialist believes it was a hidden and “logical” message to dislike black and brown people.
Ocasio-Cortez, who was not alive during the Reagan presidency, may not realize that Reagan won both of his presidential elections in a landslide. The second even more so than the first.
The more this woman opens her mouth the scarier the thought becomes that she is in a position to make laws.
