AOC, Queen of Disinformation, calls Hunter's Laptop "Half Fake"

In Brief: 

During a recent House Oversight Committee hearing on the abuse of power wielded by Twitter and the FBI, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pitched an unprofessional fit. The congresswoman called Hunter Biden’s laptop story “Half Fake” and “a 24-hour hiccup in a right-wing political operation.”

The Background: 

AOC is back to her unprofessional rants. This time, she’s claiming it is a waste of Congress’s time to be talking to former Twitter execs over their collusion with the FBI. AOC thinks she shouldn't be wasting her time talking about "the cost of prescription drugs, abortion rights, civil rights, voting rights, but instead, we're talking about Hunter Biden's half-fake laptop story.”  She added, “I mean, this is an embarrassment, but I’ll go into it."  

AOC started out by stating,  “I believe that political operatives who sought to inject explosive disinformation with the Washington Post couldn’t get away with it — and now they’re livid.” 

Congresswoman, it was the New York Post, not Washington Post. Get your facts straight before you give yourself away as a parrot of misinformation.

It should be noted that Joe and Hunter Biden never denied the story or laptop validity. And now the ownership, as well as contents, have been confirmed to be Hunter’s, by none other than Hunter's attorney. 

So, as the New York Post so aptly put it: “What we witnessed on Wednesday was a coordinated bit of gaslighting — social media figures shrugging off questions with vague answers and Democrats on the committee yelling about how this wasn’t a scandal.”
