Sarah Sanders Drops Hammer, Wins Feud With AOC: “Most of us have to show up at work to get paid”

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came up the loser in a twitter feud with former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

AOC was going on off on not going back to work until people get better conditions or higher wages or some other nonsense that will never happen.

“As usual she’s wrong. The goal should be for Americans to SAFELY return to work because unlike AOC and members of Congress,” Sarah Sanders said before dropping the hammer:

“Most of us actually have to show up at work to get paid and support our families!”

Ouch. From The Hill:

The tweet was referring to a Wednesday interview with VICE in which Ocasio-Cortez said essential workers should protest pre-existing economic insecurity and inequities even after restrictions are lifted.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to Sanders’s tweet by pointing that while she was press secretary, the White House went months without holding press conferences, which were nearly daily occurrences in past administrations. The White House only began holding regular press briefings as the coronavirus pandemic began to take hold of the country.

“Look who’s talking about showing up for work! The woman didn’t hold a press conference for months while holding a job as press sec,” she tweeted.

In the VICE interview, the congresswoman noted that the coronavirus pandemic has shined a light on pre-existing labor inequalities among workers who have now been deemed essential while often lacking sufficient pay or health care.

“If you’re so supportive of this admin’s plan, why don’t you go out and try delivering groceries for a living w/o health insurance or mass testing?” Ocasio-Cortez added.
