AOC lectures Sarah Huckabee Sanders on the Bible after White House demands leaving climate change to God

Published

on

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday responded to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ argument that climate change should be left to God.

As Raw Story reported, Sanders patronized the Bronx legislator on Fox News for promoting a Green New Deal.

“I don’t think that we are going to listen to her on much of anything, particularly anything that we will leave into the hands of a much, much higher authority,” Sanders said, presumably referring to God. “And certainly not listen to the freshman congresswoman on when the world may end.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, who is known as AOC, disputed the religious understanding of Sanders by listing three different Bible verses.

“God looked on the world & called it good not once, not twice, but seven times,” Ocasio-Cortez cited from Genesis. “God commands all people to ‘serve and protect’ creation.”

“God mandates that not only the people, but the land that sustains them, shall be respected,” cited from Genesis.

Sanders graduated from Ouachita Baptist University and is the daughter of Pastor Mike Huckabee, who was the president of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention.

“You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet, but it does anyway,” Ocasio-Cortez noted.

Of course, Congress already has the report, so the move isn’t necessary. It’s Mueller’s way of saying, as he has previously, “The report is my testimony.”

‘They share staff with the Kremlin’: Maddow roasts Trump’s new favorite right-wing network OANN

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow roasted One America News Network (OANN) for employing a Kremlin operative to report on United States politics.

"If the Fox News channel is insufficiently pro-Trump for you, you may or may not know there is another boutique little news outlet that is designed specifically for Trump megafans called One America, One America News Network," she explained.

"The Trump White House gave this boutique outfit a hard pass for access to the White House grounds and a permanent seat in the White House briefing room -- remember when the White House used to hold press briefings? They had a seat," she continued.
