AOC clearly doesn’t understand the concept of an idiom when she cried ‘It’s literally impossible to pull yourself up by your bootstraps.’


AOC aka. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), despite graduating from Boston University (to their eternal shame) during an Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday, went off on the literal meaninglessness of the widely understood idiom, “pull oneself up by one’s bootstraps”

    1. (idiomatic) To begin an enterprise or recover from a setback without any outside help; to succeed only by one’s own efforts or abilities. quotations ▼
      We can’t get a loan, so we’ll just have to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps.


But just thinking about how someone can pull themselves up by their bootstraps made AOC’s one brain cell start throbbing mercilessly.

AOC whined inside the Oversight Committee hearing:

“You know this idea and this metaphor of a bootstrap started off as a joke?” Ocasio-Cortez began. “Because it’s a physical impossibility to lift yourself up by a bootstrap — by your shoelaces. It’s physically impossible.

The whole thing is a joke.”


Twitter Showed AOC No Mercy

Critics on Twitter were quick to point out Ocasio-Cortez’s own rag-to-riches story, which is surely another baffling idiom for the congresswoman.


Remember, AOC was once completely flummoxed by a garbage disposal

Last May we wrote an article titled AOC Screams For Help After Braveheart Came Face-To-Face With Something “Terrifying”.

AOC was so confused by the new fangled invention that she posted photos and videos on Instagram asking for help while showing the apparently “terrifying” contraption at work in her swanky DC apartment.

A dazed and confused Ocasio-Cortez can be heard on Instagram saying:

“OK everyone I need your help because I just moved into this apartment a few months ago and I just flipped a switch and it made that noise and it scared the daylights out of me,” 

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal. I never had one in any place I’ve ever lived,” 


Twitter had fun with this mental midget Congresswoman taking any idiom, literally.

Lord knows, AOC would immediately cry “That’s impossible, do you know how large the doors would be?” if someone happened to mention something about an ‘Elephant In The Room’.
