AOC Doubles Down on 'Farting Cows' in Green New Deal
The freshman rep. continued to defend her Green New Deal, which plans to rid America of greenhouse gasses in a decade, on Showtime’s late-night “Desus & Mero” show Thursday.
She brought up the issue of factory farms by addressing America’s supposed mass-consumption of hamburgers.
“In the deal, what we talk about — and it’s true — is that we need to take a look at factory farming, you know? Period. It’s wild,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture. It’s not to say we’re gonna force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that. But it’s to say, ‘Listen, we gotta address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real.”
The freshman representative proceeded to claim that every decision we make affects climate change. (RELATED: 7 Signs Global Warming Doomsday Sayers Could Be Wrong)
