AOC to Shining Sea

“The politics of our moment are dominated by a bully of miserable character, a President who has failed to contain a pandemic through sheer indifference, who has fabricated a reëlection campaign based on bigotry and the deliberate inflammation of division. His language is abusive, his attitude toward women disdainful. Trump is all about himself: his needs, his ego, his self-preservation. Along the way he has created a Republican Party in his own image. Imitators like Ted Yoho slavishly follow his lead. On the House floor Thursday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exemplified a different sort of character. She defended not only herself; she defended principle and countless women. And all in just a few short minutes on the floor of the House of Representatives.” David Remnick in The New Yorker: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Delivers a Lesson in Decency on the House Floor.

+ If you haven’t seen the speech, it’s top notch. (Yoho called her a bitch. She proved she’s a badass.)
