Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez discovers garbage disposal, wonders if it is ‘environmentally sound’

At first, we thought this was a joke posted by someone on Twitter.  But apparently it’s not.  On Tuesday, the New York Post reported that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the newly-elected Democrat Socialist who wants to completely destroy the U.S. economy with a “Green New Deal,” discovered a garbage disposal in her Washington, D.C., apartment and made a huge deal out of it on Instagram.

“OK everyone I need your help because I just moved into this apartment a few months ago and I just flipped a switch and it made that noise and it scared the daylights out of me,” she said in a video posted online.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal. I never had one in any place I’ve ever lived,” she added.

According to the Post, she also wondered if the device is “environmentally sound.”

Is America headed for a recession?


One person asked:

Good question.

Twitchy explained: “This is actually a pretty common reaction to a garbage disposal for those who don’t live in New York City as they were effectively banned until 1997. Well, it’s a pretty common reaction except for the monster part…”

Twitchy makes a point that AOC may have good reason to not be familiar with a garbage disposal, but it says a lot that members of a Party that wants to dictate every aspect of our lives while shredding the Constitution and the economy have “never really been outside of NYC.”
