Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared in a video that was posted on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) Twitter account on Friday where she said that she was working to flip the seat “red.”
“Hello everybody,” Ocasio-Cortez began. “I’m so excited to be hopping on here, on Senator Sanders’ account, and we’re here in Kansas City to rally for Brent Welder.”
Then Ocasio-Cortez made her gaffe.
“We’re going to flip this seat red in November,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement of Welder, who is running in Kansas’ heavy Republican 3rd district, comes after she made a series of embarrassing statements over the last couple of weeks, including calling Israel the occupiers of Palestine and admitting she did not know what she was talking about.
