Ocasio-Cortez compares Republican Party to famed 'Office' character

 

Bears, beets and … the GOP?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., compared the Republican Party to one of the most well-known television characters over the last decade: Dwight Schrute from NBC’s “The Office.”

Ocasio-Cortez likened the GOP to the character because the party has a “technique” to take “dry humor” and “sarcasm” literally and fact check it, she tweeted Sunday.

“This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and 'fact check” it,' the freshman Congresswoman tweeted. Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows.”

The comparison came in response to criticism for her explanation about taxing the rich.

 

I've seen criticism of "like 10 people." The ten richest Americans are worth $730 billion. The fourteen richest American families (excluding the Koch brothers, so no double-counting) are worth $511 billion. Together, they're worth more than 60% of Americans combined.

 
 
 
 

“When we say ‘tax the rich,’ we mean nesting-doll yacht rich. For-profit prison rich. Betsy DeVos, student-loan-shark rich,” she tweeted, adding “Because THAT kind of rich is simply not good for society, & it’s like 10 people.”
