The democrat party is completely tone deaf when it comes to the world around them.
Perhaps no member of the party is more tone deaf than socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is known for making thoughtless political stunts..
AOC’s latest stunt?
She wore a dress printed with the words “tax the rich” to a $30,000 gala.
Yup, she’s just stunning and brave like that…
Twitter just unloaded on AOC for this ridiculous cry for attention.
Check it out:
Tfw you wear a “tax the rich” dress to an event that costs $30,000 for a ticket and $275,000 for a table

The New York Post has more on AOC’s latest cry for attention:
Well, isn’t that rich.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who is the face of the Democratic Socialists of America — showed up to the glitzy Met Gala wearing a political message seemingly aimed at her fellow partygoers.
Ocasio-Cortez wore a white gown by Brother Vellies with “Tax the Rich” in red letters splashed across her back and accessorized with a matching slogan on her bag to the America-themed ball.
The 31-year-old rep, who is the darling of the far left, could have found a more receptive audience to her sartorial statement at a workers rally. The Met Gala is an exclusive event, which is a parade of millionaire pop stars, wealthy actors, trust fund society swans and members of the gliteratti.

.@AOC is wearing a Tax The Rich dress at a $33,000/person event, exclusively attended by Hollywood elites.
She understands irony almost as well as she does economics. #MetGala

I'm starting to think AOC is a parody congresswoman.
There's simply no way she thought wearing a designer "Tax The Rich" dress to an event with $30,000 tickets would be received well.
What a FOOL.

Our friends at the Daily Wire have more:
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) faced intense backlash and mockery online on Monday evening after attending the Met Gala, an event where individual tickets reportedly cost $30,000, in a designer dress that stated, “Tax The Rich.”
“Individual tickets are reportedly priced at $30,000 a piece, a far cry from when [Vogue editor-in-chief Anna] Wintour first took over the running of the event in 1995 when they were just $1,000,” Newsweek reported. “Then there are the tables, typically bought by brands and fashion houses. These reportedly start at $275,000.”
AOC was widely mocked and criticized online, including by her supporters, for the stunt, including:
Ej Dickson, senior writer at Rolling Stone, tweeted: “Am I the only one who thinks this is really f***ing stupid[?] 1) The dress is ugly, 2) She’s at a $35k per person event and this isn’t nearly the own she thinks it is. 3) The dress is ugly. I mean I love her but come on this is so dumb. Peak girl boss s**t.”
Glenn Greenwald, a progressive blogger, tweeted: “Lots of people commenting snidely on the lack of masks and social distancing in this opulent indoor event in the middle of a pandemic but — as was true of Obama’s indoor bash — COVID wasn’t invited to the #MetGala and these are the sophisticated people who aren’t in danger.”
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) tweeted: “I’m not even mad at the lack of self awareness or hypocrisy anymore. At this point it’s just hilarious. These people are a giant joke.”
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: “What makes @AOC a bigger fraud: The “tax the rich” dress while she’s hanging out with a bunch of wealthy leftwing elites or the lack of masks after spending the past 18 months as one of the biggest authoritarian mask Karens in the country?”

Needless to say, AOC is still being mocked relentlessly for her stupid political statement:
More offensive than the hypocrisy is the frivolity. A rich woman wore a "Tax The Rich" dress to a lavish party—and we must pretend these clowns define our politics when in fact such "bread and circus" battles mean little for how we're actually governed. pic.twitter.com/5cmxtnjFfI

Not an @aoc hater.
But come on, going to an event for super-rich with “tax the rich” written on your ass, won’t change a thing. It’s a stunt to justify her presence at an fancy shin-dig that doesn’t match her political persona.
She still looks better that Kim K in the bat outfit. pic.twitter.com/g4vi9Di53l

Ladies and gentlemen, this is what privilege looks like:
“Tax the rich” says AOC’s dress … at the Met Gala … where tickets cost $30,000.
But AOC doesn’t mean them; she means you. You’re rich. Because you work. Tax you. That’s the reality. The Met Gala guys get tax breaks. You don’t. pic.twitter.com/awGxEdT2xB

If it cost $30,000 to get into the Met Gala and @AOC was given a free ticket
How does this work FEC-wise?
Is this an illegal contribution

Why didn’t AOC help her abuela instead of spending 30K+ to go to the Met Gala?
