Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says 'no question' Trump is racist

"Yeah, yeah, no question", Ocasio-Cortez replied.
Asked by moderator Anderson Cooper if she considered Trump a racist, Ocasio-Cortez responded "no question".
Cooper: One of the criticisms of you is that- that your math is fuzzy. "The Washington Post recently awarded with you four Pinocchios for misstating some statistics about Pentagon spending".
Republicans attempted to attack Ocasio-Cortez's proposal-but were able to only by entirely misrepresenting what she said on "60 Minutes", suggesting that she supports taxing all Americans' income at 70 percent.
In the interview, Ocasio-Cortez also said, "People are going to have to start paying their fair share in taxes". Democrats and their allies sometimes make mistakes or stretch the truth in the pursuit of their goals, but they display nothing comparable to the historical level of manipulation and mendacity that sustains the right wing as it is presently configured. I say, "OK, this was clumsy." and then I restate what my point was. "But it's not the same thing as the president lying about immigrants". It's not the same thing, at all. But that's a claim that doesn't require the Washington Post to fact-check.
Scalise has not publicly expressed any objections to those tweets against Ocasio-Cortez.
She'd already grabbed headlines from the interview with the early release of remarks calling for a sharp tax hike on the highest incomes to fund a massive "Green New Deal".

After Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib's use of profanity last week in calling for Trump's impeachment, Ocasio-Cortez defended Tlaib and said removing Trump is "an issue that she's passionate about". If you tax the wealthy Americans at 70% why would they want to stay in this country? You can do both!
In a statement, the White House hit back at the NY lawmaker's "sheer ignorance on the matter". "The State Department says there hasn't been any terrorists found coming across the southern border", said Wallace.
For now, it is much more important that Ocasio-Cortez excels at this agitational, transformational role than anything else. Which is a very risky, slippery slope to tread at any time but especially in an age in which the President of the United States is actively seeking to undermine the idea that objective facts actually exist.
When New York's combined state and city income tax rates last peaked in the mid-1970s, reaching almost 20 percent, full SALT deductibility assured the net cost to affected taxpayers was less than 6 percent.
But Albany Democrats should think twice before cheering her on - because NY, in particular, would have a lot to lose from a return to confiscatory federal taxes on higher earners. The "worse" is that she is held to a different standard than her colleagues and reported on differently by the media, often with that narrative-rather than straight facts-in mind.
