Pot, Kettle, and Couture: AOC Says Trump Can Be Bought

In a recent interview on MSNBC, Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) made a thought-provoking statement: Donald Trump would sell this country for a dollar.

Yes, a single dollar.

But let’s not forget AOC’s own controversy – and how easily she can apparently be bought.

In 2021, during New York City’s prestigious Met Gala, AOC made headlines by wearing a white gown with the words “Tax The Rich” boldly scrawled across the back. The dress was intended to be a fashion-forward protest against economic inequality and a call to address wealth disparities in America.

The Allegations and Investigation

  1. Impermissible Gifts: A nonpartisan watchdog review found “substantial reason to believe that she accepted impermissible gifts” related to the Met Gala event. The investigation centered on payments for the dress AOC rented for the occasion. The gifts in question included not only the dress but also a handbag, shoes, jewelry, hair, makeup, transportation services, and the use of a hotel room 1.
  1. House Ethics Probe: The Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) issued a report stating that while AOC eventually paid for the rental value of the attire and related services, the payment occurred only after the OCE contacted her during their review. The OCE board recommended that the House Ethics Committee investigate the allegations against her.
  1. Denial and Response: AOC denied any wrongdoing, and her counsel emphasized that the matter did not rise to the level of a violation of House rules or federal law. However, the investigation focused on whether her rented dress violated congressional rules about gifts.

AOC’s Explanation

AOC defended her choice to wear the “Tax The Rich” dress, stating that she intended to carry the message into a wealthy space. She borrowed the dress because she believed that while the Met Gala is known for its spectacle, it was essential to have a conversation about wealth and privilege.

Public Reaction

The controversy sparked intense debate. Some praised AOC’s bold statement, while others criticized her for attending an event associated with opulence while advocating for taxing the wealthy. The dress became a symbol of her commitment to addressing income inequality.

Remember, folks – Donald Trump isn’t the only politician who can be bought. It’s something they’re all pretty good at.
