The Republican National Committee released a new ad on Friday mocking Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, highlighting numerous false and outrageous claims she has made in recent interviews.
What does the ad show?
At the beginning, the ad declares Ocasio-Cortez, who is running for New York's 14th congressional district as the Democratic nominee, the "future" of the Democratic Party.
The ad then goes on to feature some of Ocasio-Cortez's most cringeworthy recent moments, including when she admitted she lacks sufficient knowledge to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and when she pledged to "flip this seat red in November" during a campaign stop in Kansas.
Other moments highlighted include false claims Ocasio-Cortez has made, which have since been debunked, including when she claimed unemployment rates are low because "everyone has two jobs" and when she said the U.S. defense budget was allotted a $700 billion increase last year.
Spliced in between the Ocasio-Cortez interviews is a famous scene from "Billy Madison," the 1995 movie featuring Adam Sandler, where Sandler's character is chided by his principal for giving a silly answer to a question about the industrial revolution.
"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul," the principal said.
