Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Quitting Facebook

Ocasio-Cortez was speaking with Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery" Sunday when she was asked to comment on Biden's long-rumored White House bid. I think it has effects on everybody: "increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism".

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez listens during the House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., February 27, 2019.

Ocasio-Cortez described her separation from Facebook as a "big deal" because the platform was crucial to her campaign.

"You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes", she said. She added, "It's always been about that for me". "I don't think it's out of line to simply call that out and criticize it".

"I'm very supportive of Bernie's run".

Ocasio-Cortez shot to national prominence a year ago after unseating New York Rep. Joe Crowley, then a top Democrat in the House.

The 29-year-old congresswoman from NY has reportedly been invited to talk at this year's event, which returns in June after a break in 2018.


More recently, Mr Corbyn has responded to Ms Ocasio-Cortez's request on Twitter for gardening tips.

Summarizing the looming problem of dealing with concentrated tech power, Ocasio-Cortez noted the conventional wisdom that "Congress is fundamentally slow and technology is fundamentally fast".

"I mean, I think it's on the table. I grew up with that Yankees dream team, like, [Derek] Jeter, [Jorge] Posada, like, Mariano Rivera", Ocasio-Cortez said.

While many of Ocasio-Cortez's critics and fans believe that her social media game is her greatest strength, Ocasio-Cortez has become a frequent punching bag on social media as numerous things that she posts are false, offensive, or both.

Much of the investigation into alleged Russian election meddling and related matters, Ocasio-Cortez said, "comes down to Emoluments".

"Justice is here", said one image Ocasio-Cortez posted to Facebook in 2017 for the left-wing political group Justice Democrats, in a play on the show's "Winter is here" tagline.
