MTG versus AOC, over the GND?

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Wednesday challenged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to a debate over the economics of the latter’s signature “Green New Deal” policy proposal.

“@AOC I’d like to challenge you to a debate on the Green New Deal economic policy,” Greene tweeted Wednesday morning in a thread.

The controversial Georgia Republican also brought up her and the self-described democratic socialist’s economic and business credentials.

“Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have a degree in Economics, I’m sure you are more than qualified,” Greene wrote. “I just have a degree in Business Admin and have owned a construction company for 20 years.”

“A debate between AOC and I on the Green New Deal economic policy would be informative for the American People,” she added. “They deserve to hear the two sides with pro’s [sic] and cons.”

Proposing some ground rules, Greene suggested that she and Ocasio-Cortez each choose one moderator and then negotiate a major news network to host the debate.

“Let’s do this for The People,” the Georgia congresswoman said, concluding her pitch. “What do you say?”

The New York Democrat never gave a response to her, which prompted Greene hours later to further press Ocasio-Cortez on a debate, noting how many Twitter users expressed excitement over a potential televised event.

“People are saying they would pay money to see it,” Greene said, then floating the idea of making the debate “pay per view style” and have the money raised divvied up between the pair for places of each’s choosing.

“What do you think?” she asked.

However, Ocasio-Cortez has yet to respond to the debate proposition.

Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not immediately respond to this reporter’s request for comment.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
