Politicians always want to connect with their constituents. Politicians want to empathize with people, seeing things from others point of view can help them do their jobs.
However, this can often come across as pandering. When this happens, it often rubs people the wrong way and just something typical politicians would do to get a few votes.
Well, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was speaking Rev. Al Shaprton’s National Action Network convention where she may have been guilty of pandering.
The Democratic congresswoman used an accent while speaking to the crowd that most people haven’t ever heard her use.
Ocasio-Cortez speaks in an accent that she never uses while telling a room of predominately black people that there is nothing wrong with them folding clothes, cooking, and driving other people around on a bus for a living. pic.twitter.com/FIbIAPokt0
