Full disclosure: We’re going to miss all of the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez memes when she gets voted out of Congress this November. That’s assuming, of course, that MSNBC doesn’t hire her for a daily one-hour show, because why wouldn’t they?
You probably heard that oil prices crashed this week after storage capacity was basically reached in all the ordinary places. (No one’s buying fuel during the shutdowns.) The price of oil actually dipped into negative territory, which is horrible for the economies of states like Alaska and Texas.
It’s even more misery heaped on top of the misery that the shutdowns have already caused. And guess who was cheering for this?
Yep. The lady who Spock just discovered is brain-dead in this meme. AOC was positively delighted at oil prices crashing. Pause to think about that: People’s jobs and livelihoods are going away, and she’s happy about it and using it to push her own Green New Deal policy. Gross.
