President Donald Trump is scared of smart independent women like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), which is why he attacked her during a speech in Pennsylvania. But it did not go so well for him because she responded.
Trump spoke in Scranton, which is the birthplace of former Vice President Joe Biden, to counter Biden’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. During his remarks, he falsely claimed that Biden was not born in Scranton.
It’s a pretty stupid attempt to promote birtherism against Biden.
But Trump also targeted Ocasio-Cortez by attacking her intelligence and her support of the Green New Deal.
“AOC, that’s another beauty,” Trump creepily began. “She’s the designer of the Green New Deal. She knows nothing about the environment. She probably never studied. If I asked her, how many hours have you taken on the environment.”

Ocasio-Cortez attended Boston University and graduated with honors. In fact, she double majored in international relations and economics and has a solid science background because she placed second in the microbiology category of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair when she was in high school.
You don’t through all of that without studying.
It didn’t take long for Ocasio-Cortez to fire back with some sarcasm.
Wow, really heartbroken to hear what a guy who thinks “windmill cancer” is a thing thinks about my climate policy.
Anyways check out our Green New Deal plan for Public Housing, we worked w/ scientists, building trade workers & NYCHA residents to write it: https://t.co/E8xOYR0QAS https://t.co/kqFuxw98gz

This is not the first time Trump has insulted her intelligence. AOC responded to that moment by challenging Trump to release his college transcripts. He has yet to do so. Because if this feud proves anything, it’s that Trump is truly the stupid one.
