Ok, it looks like a fake tweet. I didn't know you could search tweets. New at twitter.

Sorry for the mistake.
No worries, just wanted to make sure to clarify that it wasn't real. I've seen it a few times with fake tweets President Trump supposedly made, among other politicians.

Right up there with "buy more soy beans Xi, so I can get re-elected"
That doesn't COUNT!!! Trump can do anything because he is the great leader of 'Merica.

I would like to add that saying AOC is the face of the Democratic Party is extremely misleading. Anyone that pays any sort of attention to politics knows that the GOP is painting her that way to try and make her the official representative of the Democratic Party . A one term House member is not the face of a party. :roll: :roll: :roll:
Maybe not the face of the party, but she is a very popular person to a lot of people on the left, and a very recognizable face now. I mean how many other congresswomen/men can you name from other states?? I can't name many but I know Ilhan Omar and I know AOC. Dan Crenshaw, the eyepatch guy, is about the only other one I can think of.
Lots of members of the house gained notoriety during the impeachment hearings.

Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Devin Nunes, Adam Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Nancy Pelosi, Steve King, Ted Lieu, Maxine Waters, Katie Porter, Hakeem Jefferies...are a few off the top of my head.
Yes, they were so hell-bent on trying to take Trump down (for the 4th time) and make a name for themselves with the impeachment hearings instead of paying any attention to the Corona Virus - I know what I'll remember them for!

Oh btw, can anybody count how many of these stellar diplomats of peace and honor have been bribed by money from George Soros?


Socialism - the financial model historically used to control the masses! It has noting to do with
freedom, and seriously erodes the primary constitutional freedom of free enterprise.

This tweet is FAKE. C'mon, people, do a tiny bit of research - especially those of you who constantly rant about "fake news".
Yep, you are absolutely right. Saw this on Facebook yesterday too. Here to eat the crow. #-o

It is not hard to explain... Right wingers trying to make AOC the face of the party:
https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/ ... 466493002/
https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/21/media/fo ... ndex.html
Funny how easily right wing media can manipulated people. :wink:
Yep, its just the right wing doing it. Known right-wing publications putting AOC on their cover, like Rolling Stone and Time magazine... :lol: :lol: :lol:

"Women shaping the future:"

"The Phenom":
https://zh-prod-1cc738ca-7d3b-4a72-b792 ... 0cover.jpg
You are kidding? "The Phenom" literally says on the cover says she is a lightning rod! That is from GOP attacks and right wing media focus on her! :lol:
"Women shaping the future" was published on Feb 28, 2019. At that point Fox was mentioning her name around 75 times per day, it makes sense to have name recognition (from detractors in her case) on the cover. Also, the cover is going to show the diversity of the House, and she is 1 of 11 congresswomen of the Hispanic caucus. But I guess we can pretend a congresswoman for 18 months is the Democratic Party...
Just recently, Biden named AOC as an advisor. Apparently your party’s presidential nominee feels she is very influential.

Wow, an advisor on climate change. Crazy...
Let's see, Trump's advisor Gates, Manafort, Stone, Papadopoulos and Cohen have all been found guilty of breaking the law. We still are waiting on Flynn's sentencing and Giuliani's investigation.
But yeah, I guess asking someone who has dedicated time to understanding the ramification of climate change to provide information makes no sense...

You are assuming that she understands climate change. That green new deal would put our country out of business. And according to her, the world will end in 12 years. Talk about fear mongering! Kids were having nightmares worrying about the end of the world.

But of course you are misdirecting again! You downplayed AOC as just a freshman. Seems like a lot of pandering by the Democratic Party leaders to this poor little freshman. The Democratic Party might be in the worst shape it has ever been. Trump is a flawed candidate and the best you can do is BIDEN!!! Haha haha! The next in line was Sanders and then Warren?? OMG! I guess that I can understand the attacks on Trump when you don’t have anybody in your party to be enthused about!

I think there are a few that should listen to the last couple of years of the Dan Bongino podcasts. He lays out pertinent info. He gives a MUCH MORE detailed timeline rather than the "that damned Trump is really a bad guy cause he says mean things and he won the election. We don't like him." I stopped voting for senior class president when I graduated high school . Yes, he is brash and certainly doesn't always think before he speaks but as far as policies he is our guy!!!

I really hope that high schools start finding ways to show students how to point out fake news. And I'm not talking about narrative, agenda driven news like pretty much any MSM on both aisles that people love to call fake news. I'm talking about 100% made up doctored images and stories like this one. I'm talking the fact that as soon as I saw the screenshot on the first post in this thread my BS radar was pinging on high alert.

Guys, if it sounds too good or too bad to be true, it probably isn't. This reads exactly like it was written by someone who hates AOC and I don't even follow her on Twitter, I've seen maybe 5 total Tweets of hers.

I sure as hell hope this happens. Way too many people are quick to believe anything they see on Facebook or other social media outlets, even if it's quite obviously a total fabrication like this "tweet". And it happens on both sides of the political spectrum, as I've also seen supposed tweets from Trump that have been doctored or totally made up. People need to think for themselves. It's not that hard.

I think people see what they want to see. If something fits the narrative they have in their head, they are less likely to question it. To a degree, I think that's human nature.

It's like @ilovethecats posting all the fear porn about how bad Covid is and how everyone needs to go back inside.

It has been pointed out earlier, but when the facts are not on your side, you misdirect. Once again, you are misdirecting!

I will go ahead and play your game. Trump has had a number of shady individuals around him. Of course, Obama never had any sketchy characters around him... But wait.... A quick google search shows a number of crooked guys:

Hunter Biden - Sleepy Joe's son - How did he get an $80,000 a month job with the Croatian company, Burisma? He admits that he had no experience in the field. Funny how his dad, Joe Biden, was politically connected in Croatia.

Terence Flynn, an appointee of Barack Obama to the National Labor Relations Board, resigned in May 2012 after being accused of serious ethical violations.

Hillary Clinton. Benghazi. Emails. Enough said.

Terry Bean - Obama: A "great friend and supporter" - Convicted of sex abuse.

Solyndra - Multiple Obama political contributors - This cost US taxpayers $535 million.

Anyway, you stick with your conspiracy theories (surprised you didn't mention pizzagate) and I will stick with investigations that led to actual convictions.
