AOC Mocks Electoral College, Middle Americans
In an Instagram video posted Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) ridiculed the Electoral College and, by implication, vast swaths of Americans who don’t live in Democrat-concentrated, coastal urban zones.
“We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” she said in the video, with the camera panning over empty fields. “Many votes here, as you can see. Very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean, I can’t think of any other way. Can you?”
In a later post, AOC added, “To all the Republicans getting big mad [because] the electoral college is, in fact, a scam” followed by an article arguing that supporters of the Electoral College are clinging to a racist system that disenfranchises “millions.”
“#FactsAreFacts, America. The Electoral College has got to go,” she concluded, because Democrats don’t want the Middle Americans they despise so openly to have a fair say in elections.
