Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unleashed a rant of logically challenged proportions against “people” — yes, “people” — for failing to properly support Chinese restaurants during this health crisis called coronavirus.

Leave it to Ocasio-Cortez to find a new way to slide in the left’s fave conversation ender, the race card.

“Honestly, it sounds almost so silly to say,” she said — and that there is the only factual phrase she made. She should’ve taken her own suggested advice and stopped.

But bless her heart, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one goofy broad.

She can’t help herself. Which makes her great for the print world.

She went on, via Instagram Live, as reported in The Washington Examiner: “There’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism. People are literally not patroning [sic] Chinese restaurants. They’re not patroning [sic] Asian restaurants because of just straight-up racism around the coronavirus.”


She meant patronizing, of course.

And then she tied in coronavirus with the need to embrace illegals — which is a strange position to take for a country that’s trying to isolate, confine and wipe out a rapidly spreading virus.

“Disincentivizing our immigrant neighbors from seeking health care is wrong,” she said, The Independent reported. “Health care is a human right for all people. Coronavirus doesn’t care if you’re documented or undocumented.”

Excellent; so let’s open the borders wide and let all the sick people into America?

Why not? That could kill two birds with one stone.

They could all go patroning at a Chinese restaurant.
