Progressive firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave a stunning answer when asked about the Supreme Court and the recent confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the highest court of the land.
‘We pack the Supreme Court…’
The socialist Democrat took questions after a screening of Michael Moore’s anti-Trump documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9,” and cheerfully took up a query about the Supreme Court from a member of the audience.
“If in a few months from now the Supreme Court looks like, I’m pretty scared it’s going to,” the man said, “a court that would overturn Roe [v. Wade] and make the President above the rule of law, what is to be done?”
“I think we take back the House,” Ocasio-Cortez answered. “We take back the Senate.”
“We take back the presidency,” she continued, “and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America.”
“Next!” she joked. “No, thank you, it’s a very important question.”
The answer received a lot of applause from the audience, but was jeered by others who thought it was as improbable as it was extreme.
Ocasio-Cortez has also said that she would like to abolish the electoral college, calling it “a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic.”
It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic. https://t.co/00HZN3MI6F
