So a bunch of right-wing trolls decided they’d hold a press release so some young guy could claim he had an affair with Elizabeth Warrren. No one believed him, especially after it came out that he is a convicted felon who had lied about his military experience and responded to the question “Are you on any kind of medication?” with “That’s a violation of the privacy laws concerning medical records” (which is totally what people who are not on medication say).
Bette Midler had a great response:
But then Elizabeth Warren came out and admitted that yes, she is a Cougar:
This is how you deal with trolls like these: laugh at them.
Of course, that doesn’t stop these idiots who somehow think they’re making some grand point or are pulling a fast one. Take this Trump-supporting girl who showed up at an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez meeting, pretending to be a supporter, who made a ‘modest proposal’ that we all needed to save the planet by eating babies. It wasn’t long before Trump tweeted “Seems like a normal AOC supporter to me.”
AOC responded like a human being does, saying “This person may have been suffering from a mental condition and it’s not okay that the right-wing is mocking her and potentially make her condition or crisis worse. Be a decent human being and knock it off.”
Of course, it didn’t take long for people to discover that this was just another stupid troll from the right.
That, of course, won’t stop AOC’s detractors from sharing the video and trying to claim this person is one of ours. After all, they have demonstrated many times that facts don’t matter.
