Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed the Times Square billboard that criticized her as ‘wack.’
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers.)”

Per the Daily Caller:
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized a prominent conservative group Wednesday night for erecting a billboard in New York City’s Times Square criticizing her for running Amazon out of the state.
“Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers),” she tweeted, noting the conservative group Job Creators Network funded the billboard. The group is tied to the Mercer Family Foundation.
Amazon’s decision to ding a planned New York campus will cost the city thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in lost economic activity, the billboard claims.
“Thanks For Nothing, AOC!” the sign reads
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t take criticism without responding… so the Right should double down on criticizing her because she will lose it.
She graduated college in 2011, and still bartending 7 years later. Yep, she learned everything she knows about politics in the bar. Poor thing really believes she is brilliant.
But the folks on Twitter didn’t think she was brilliant:
Alexandra my nephew (Chad )lost the job he was going to get at Amazon thank’s to your antics ,, hope your happy now ,, wow

I’m a New Yorker and asked all my friends and people at the corner Starbucks and we all agree with the billboard message. Do you actually talk to people who matter?

But Al, in AOC’s mind she saved the pizza place $10
What’s more anti-worker than killing 25,000 jobs?

Yeah ding dong that billboard didn’t cost the tax payers one penny. When are you going after Hillary for the money she made on selling US uranium to the Russians?

I love that sign! Maybe you should have stuck with bartending. Once again, congrats on destroying 25k jobs.
— Andrew Darrah (@DarrahAndrew) February 22, 2019
But keep in mind those jobs were going to pay an average of $150K a year. AOC probably didn’t want to create upper-middle-class families.

#AOC, it takes a special kind of ‘smart’ to drive away 25,000 jobs and then tell everyone it was a “victory for the people”. That’s Pol Pot economics, not that you would know what I’m talking about of course.

How can offering 25K jobs be antiworkers? Start a compamy, make $1B in revenue, compete globally, sustainable, then talk. Ugh. It’s like someone getting a wheelbarrow full of gold and complaining it’s too heavy.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a bad day on just about every subject.
Maybe AOC isn’t that brilliant.
