“Removing Trump” is just the tip of the iceberg – AOC

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez teamed up with LGBTQ rights activist and former “Star Trek” actor George Takei point the finger at President Donald Trump for what they pair consider to be systemic problems with the minds of Americans today.

Takei began the exchange by theorizing that the president could go “down in disgrace” from one of the investigations against him, but even so, it wouldn’t explain why anyone would dare to support him.

“Let’s say Trump goes down in disgrace from Mueller or the SDNY or Congressional investigations. We’re left with a big question: How did a guy like that get elected? Why do so many still support him? We can’t just say ‘Fox News’ or ‘Russians.’ We have serious issues to sort out.

Ocasio-Cortez then jumped in and spoke to what she called the “REAL” problem that we have, referring to a “horrific” president who is a sign of a deeper issue:

“This is the REAL conversation we need to have as a country,” Ocasio-Cortez replied.

“As horrific as this president is, he is a symptom of much deeper problems. Even foreign influence plays on nat’l wounds that we refuse to address: income inequality, racism, corruption, a willingness to excuse bigotry.”

“He can stay, he can go. He can be impeached, or voted out in 2020,” she tweeted.

“But removing Trump will not remove the infrastructure of an entire party that embraced him; the dark money that funded him; the online radicalization that drummed his army; nor the racism he amplified+reanimated.”

Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described socialist-Democrat, has floated many radical theories about how to save the planet, and appears to be pivoting to finding ways to save the American people from their own indiscretions of thought.


“In order for us to heal as a nation, we ALL must pursue the hard work of addressing these root causes.

“It’s not as easy as voting. It means having uncomfortable moments convos w/ loved ones, w/ media, w/ those we disagree, and yes – within our own party, too.

“It’s on all of us.”
