WHO Kidboy  the Squack?  she has no credibility only in certain places., In my personal view, she is disastrous to the Democratic  Party, bu they elected her. as far as her fame I am sure it doesn't extend beyond  the Bronx, so i wouldn't;t worry about her at all.
Worry for a change as to how much of your money Trump has spent in Mar Lago. and then start complaining about that.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended on Thursday her pricey haircut

The irony of comments in this thread is striking. We have a forum member, who relentlessly complained about the cost of Obama vacations and Michelle's shopping trips. But when Trump outspent Obama's 8 years of travel costs in a little over 2 years, he never complained. Isn't that interesting? Sounds like a huge double standard, doesn't it? 

 

And now, just like many Fox viewers, he's equally obsessed with AOC,. Most Americans couldn't care less about AOC. We don't care what she says or where she gets her hair done. But Fox is trying to portray her as the face of the democratic party, so they show her over and over on Fox. 

 

Since Fox viewers don't understand how propaganda works, they fall for it big time.

There is a government subsidized barber shop in the Capitol. She chose not to use it. 

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

I regret to inform you that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Derangement Syndrome (AOCDS) has struck again.


In actual fact, as the internet swiftly pointed out, Ocasio-Cortez’s $80 cut and $180 coloring were not actually that “high-dollar”. Women’s haircuts are incredibly expensive. Being a woman is incredibly expensive.


What’s more, spending money on a haircut is not incompatible with being a socialist.
Conservatives seem to think that if you want to tax billionaires and make the world a more equitable place you ought to live in a dirt hut and refuse to participate in modern society.


Last year, for example, a reporter for the Washington Examiner tried to insinuate that AOC was a hypocrite by posting a photo of her wearing a nice jacket and coat. The subtext being that you can’t call yourself a real socialist unless you dress in rags.


AOC responded to HairGate by tweeting a story about Mike Pence spending almost $600,000 in limo service for an unnecessary detour to Trump’s Irish resort in Doonbeg. You know, the one that was 181 miles away from Pence’s meetings in Dublin.
“Mike Pence used *taxpayer funds* - not personal ones - to spend several thousand haircuts’ worth of public money on a visit to Trump golf courses,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I wonder if Republicans care about corruption as much as they care about a woman’s cut & color.” I think we all know the answer to that question.


This is also a depressing reminder that being a woman means being forced to walk an impossible tightrope everyday.


You’re criticized if you don’t look good, but you’re also criticized if you look too good.

I did my own Google research on women's hair services after reading this post. But reading through it again I see that the actual salon is named! This made it really easy to go to Yelp! and check them out (www.yelp.com)

 

Here's the salon

https://www.yelp.com/biz/last-tangle-in-washington-salon-washington-2

 

Yelp gives it a cost factor of two dollar signs "$$". 

 

The range is one to four "$" up to "$$$$". So "$$" is "Moderate".

 

It gets Rave reviews, I give them that!

 

So, "OMG! She spent maybe 300 bucks to get her hair done!" What a crock. I'm sure this isn't even needed every month like us old geezers who go down to Great Clips for our $13 Senior hair cut (that takes all of 6 minutes).

 

This is more "Fake News".

 

Like the man said,  You go girl!

Let's tell AOC to pay for her own haircuts and Trump to pay for his weekly vacations to Florida.

This is what trump supporters want to talk about?  How about America being alienated from our allies by the maniac that trump supporters endlessly support by distracting from and denying his action?  How about trump's actions getting the Kurdish people slaughtered and ran into deserts while ISIS members are escaping from prison to plan attacks against America? How about trump and his administration refusing to comply with subpoenas from Congress, a violation of the law? How about trump's actions leaving Nukes in Turkey vulnerable to falling into the hands of terrorists?

 

All this and trump supporters want to talk about a Freshman Congresswoman's haircuts.  It reminds me of the obsession about Obama's vacations. Shallow.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended on Thursday her pricey haircut, claiming the 'right-wing' is 'mad' she looks good while promoting Democratic socialism.

The 29-year-old progressive congresswoman received a $260 haircut and dye last month, the Washington Times revealed in a Wednesday article that criticized the lawmaker for 'preaching socialism while living the life of the privileged.'

'40 million Americans live in poverty under today's extreme inequality, yet the right-wing want you to blame Democratic socialism for their own moral failures,' Ocasio-Cortez posted to her Twitter a day after the report circulated. 'Our policies, like Medicare for All, advance prosperity for working people. They're just mad we look good doing it.'

Ocasio-Cortez, according to the report, received an $80 haircut and $180 low light treatment at Last Tangle Salon in Northwest Washington D.C. in September. The Times noted that with a 20 per cent tip, the total would come out to more than $300.

You go girl!


Is this what the leaders want talked about to offset the mess Trump has caused in Syria. People are dying, We had to destroy one of our own bases in Syria as our troops ran for their lives. Russians have taken over some of our other basses and are now the top dog there. No country in the world would ever trust us again. Trump and the far right at work. This is what is being covered up by subjects like this.

Why do the regressives believe it is acceptable to disparage someone's appearance?

Can't hardly distract from trump's treasonous actions with a post about AOC's hair cut.  Nice try though.
