In the long list of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lowlights, this ranks right near the top of the list.
Once, it was Ocasio-Cortez’s habit of “shoot first and aim later” style of social media activity that got her into trouble.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a fool out of herself with this idiotic public display.
Democrats are trying to shape a narrative that Republicans are to blame for the government shutdown.
Ocasio-Cortez and her allies don’t want the American people to know that it’s really Joe Biden and the left that shutdown the government.
Biden and the Democrats won’t accept border security measures, and they won’t accept spending cuts to get a handle on the nation’s $33 trillion dollar debt.
Ocasio-Cortez interjected herself into this fight with a bizarre post on social media using the “girl power” memes from TikTok and other social media platforms that mock so-called “boy match,” claiming it was “boy math” that it took Kevin McCarthy 15 votes to become Speaker of the House, and then McCarthy shut down the government within nine months.
Boy math is needing 15 attempts to count the votes correctly to become Speaker and then shutting down the government 9 months later

No one could understand what this meant, as it would take a stupid to English translation to derive an actual meaning.
Math problems involve an equation and a solution.
Ocasio-Cortez provided neither in this instance.
Instead, Noah Rothman of National Review argued that making sense wasn’t the point, and that Ocasio-Cortez just wanted to throw some slop up against the wall to signal to a collection of hyper online young Americans that she was one of them.
“Indeed, it’s not designed to convey a comprehensible or salient point. It’s gibberish. Worse, it makes no effort to be anything other than gibberish. The point of this exercise is, rather, not to be understood by everyone. The value in this sentence is that it is vaguely recognizable as both a tribal signifier — a sign that its author’s affinities aren’t with the GOP — and a display of the jargon exclusive to a (literally) plugged-in set of youthful Americans,” Rothman wrote.
There are now 11,000 illegal aliens crossing the border every single day.
Rather than solve this crisis, Ocasio-Cortez would rather shut the government down and post incomprehensible memes on social media.
