    That’s gangsta!😎

  2. V. Lee Walker

    I think she’s great!

    • Ann Linley Any business person is a fool if they leave in the words of Warren Buffet who is the third richest person 81.1 billion that higher taxes are needed for the rich and any individual leaving because of a higher tax bracket is a fool and not an entrepreneur and this wont happen for the simple fact of “money is money”. Also this is not new this was even higher in the past at 90% and these times were filled with such wealth during the 50 60s and 70s.

    • +Dom J. wait u think your explaining him how taxes work ??? How dare you …. he is just a troll

  3. Kevin Duggan

    I love her I really do believe she could be the next president of Venezuela

    • Kevin Duggan

      Progressive Humanist no

    • Charisma Fries

      Kevin Duggan Thanks for not using Scandinavia as an example. Highly appreciated. 😁

    • Kieran Flockhart

      Kevin Duggan I guess you haven’t seen the success of Canada, Scotland, Denmark, England, Sweden, Norway, etc. I live in a socialist country and the way yous feel about socialism we feel about fascism “, that’s why we have less poverty than yous. We have free healthcare and we don’t make people pay to learn in fact we give students money to go to college, you know, to encourage people to learn so they can get a job. Oh yeah yous don’t, stop watching Fox News for your media, if u go on media bias.com it shows u what way new channels lean and it leans far right. Try Al Jazeera or routers, most center ones

  4. Dan Mueller

    why cant rich people today do what JP morgen and John D Rockefeller did when the government raised taxes.

    • Wait your asking trolls that question???how dare you …. they r just trolls

  5. ReadyOrNot

    What you’ve just said was one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the nation is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    • At least she doesn’t have to pretend quotes from 90s movies are her own.

  6. Michael_C

    I mean she’s not wrong

  7. Elias Azhimi

    I think she is to weak

  8. BernieBro

    That’s an excellent answer. Keep underestimating her and keep losing GOP seats in Congress

    • Angel Martell

      Irwin K. NYC is blue wherever we walk it feels 80% blue. Being a rep is a waste o time here. If I wore a red hat in my Bronx I’d get shamed lol or beat up. Trust me it’s all blu lol. Like a tiny Cali. Ps. AOC is smaller in person than ppl think felt like my little sister was famous lol

    • KREATURE79

      No trump IS your president and mine too…with all of the election rigging and cheating Hillary still couldn’t win!!its time to.face facts,trump won fair and.square..you can.say hes not your President but here in.reality HE IS!😂😆😂😂😂😂😂

    • networkdeath1

      And keep assaulting the enshrined, hard fought freedoms that two centuries of real Americans fought for, in order to give the elite Left absolute mastery over your life.

    • Angel Martell

      Losing seats lol, left right is a the course of how things have always been. Knowone gets all the seats lol. But they can try.

  9. Matt Swift

    She’s not playing “the game” because the game needs new rules and is rigged by corporate influence in Washington. She’s changing the game.

    • Matt Swift

      +Michael She did have some help from groups that are working to take money out of politics.

      Ocasio-Cortez shunned corporate PACs, but her campaign accepted $10,000 from two progressive PACs: MoveOn.org and Justice Democrats. Both PACs contributed $5,000 each to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign.

      Trent said those groups and other progressive organizations have sent emails urging their members to support Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign. Those groups have nationwide membership, which Trent said could also be a reason why the campaign has seen donations from regions across the country.

    • Elizabeth B

      Changing it to what you nitwit?  More taxes and surcharges and fees to fulfill her socialist wish list.  Get real.  Get educated.  The population the size of the USA cannot support her dreams of FREE life for everyone.  You will be one of the first one whining why you don’t have any money to buy a new smartphone.

    • Yuri Orloff

      Matt Swift she isn’t changing anything, son. She was elected by 7% of voters in a backwater district as a junior Representative and has accomplished nothing in Congress or in life.

  10. Dabuss55

    Dude, every single link I click to watch the full episode leads me to stupid 1 minute clips from the episode. I even subscribed to the monthly CBS thing and still can’t access it. Ugh! Come on!

    • Eric W.

      I actually found a full length one and posted it on my facebook a couple hours ago and someone just mentioned that the link doesn’t work. I check it and the video was deleted. It wasn’t posted by 60 minutes and I am sure it was probably because of a copyright infringement, but even when I looked at my youtube history, nothing was there. So wtf?? I was trying to see who initially posted it to see if they had posted other videos of her but it was a dead end. Still have the dead link on my facebook profile though.

    • Eric W.

      @Dabuss55 I ABSOLUTELY hate watching 60 mins. They only have short clips of their videos, even on their website. It always makes me feel like they’re trying to brainwash me when I see partials of a full clip. Definitely not coming back to their Youtube channel or their website. Too shady for me to watch their interviews.

    • They deleted the full interview for some reason. It was up yesterday.

    • TheRickyp83

      Dude, just go to the CBS website and watch the full episode.

    • +TheRickyp83 you have a link, i just tried searching and couldnt find it

  11. William Healy

    I love her I think she will be the next president of Venezuela

  12. Matt Scott

    get rid of illegals please

  13. Dr. Richard Peter Johnson

    Thank God she’s cute because she’s not getting by on brains.

    • Patricia Witherspoon

      Welllllllll, I find that preferable to Cheeto Head. I also don’t agree. She is an exquisite young Hispanic woman, and she has brains as well as beauty. Pity Cheeto has neither.

    • Walter Flanagin

      Patricia Witherspoon How many people do you know that didnt go to college. Like straight up did not get a college degree. Almost EVERYONE goes to college and gets a degree. You can get a degree with C’s. International relations must have been a doosie of a course. I can only imagine the super hard exams and in depth papers she had to do. It’s as easy as getting a Philosophy degree. Anyone can do it

      International relations
      Minor in economics
      Really?

    • Patricia Witherspoon

      I disagree with you on all of that – the difficulty, and whether or not she got C’s (and you know that….how??). I thought the initial statement was that she was lying about her degree. It is to be presumed, according to public records, that she did not. End of statement.

    • Walter Flanagin

      Patricia Witherspoon i’m not saying she’s lying about her degree at all. I’m just saying it means nothing. I assume she got C’s judging by the fact that she doesn’t know the 3 branches of government that I knew when I was in 3rd grade. She doesn’t realize 90Bn>40Bn…she must have had great grades in economics. She consistently has no idea what she is talking about. And people like that make C’s and get degrees.

    • Patricia Witherspoon

      She may perhaps misspeak, and may make mistakes. Of course NONE of US have ever done that, right? She has some interesting ideas, and most of them are perfectly in line with my admitted, open and proud Liberal opinions. She may need to learn a lot. I vaguely remember being 29…..and how much I didn’t know. But she is passionate, caring and willing to suggest challenging ideas. Some will work, (the 70% tax on the rich is a breathtakingly good idea and goes right back to the past Republicans seem to love so much), some won’t. I’m glad she is there and I am glad she is fearless, even if it means she is sometimes wrong. That is the end of my discussion on this. Good life to you.

  14. Pallaton

    Barf!

  15. ABC ABC

    Horse teeth

  16. Fin Jeory

    Why won’t she debate any of her detractors? 🤔

  17. Doug Grinbergs

    She’s the right person, in the right place, at the right time; just wishing there were more Justice Dems like her. (;-)

    • silky johnson

      You are as dumb as she is low grade!

    • TheFoxSaid

      “”…people are too focused on being “factually” accurate, and not focused enough on being morally right.” Go ahead and try to defend that statement.

    • Your right Doug Grinbergs every body voted for paygo except her Ro Khana and Tulsi

  18. Stephen

    Stick with dancing….economics isn’t your thing

    • Dennis Gomez

      Stephen a little more than nothing, one must admit

    • Dennis Gomez

      Flynn Karrer history is a cookbook #twilightzone

    • KREATURE79

      She needs to get a refund from her college then because she.CLEARLY doesnt understand economics!! Shhe thinks unemployment is low due to people having 2 jobs.😂😆😂😆😂 “muh economics degree” gtfoh shes as dumb .as.a.rock

    • Flynn Karrer

      Dennis Gomez what ?

  19. Śūnyatā Advaita
