President Donald Trump had a good laugh at the expense of Democratic lawmakers that he said are “petrified” of a “young bartender.”
During the National Republican Congressional Committee dinner, Trump was speaking when he moved on to the topic of the “Green New Deal” and its founder, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Trump slammed Democrats for cowing to the congresswoman’s “crazy” deal, even though not a one of them voted for the resolution when it was put to a vote.
“The Green New Deal, done by a young bartender, 29 years old. A young bartender, wonderful young woman,” Trump said. “The Green New Deal. The first time I heard it I said, ‘That’s the craziest thing.’ You have senators that are professionals that you guys know that have been there for a long time. White hair, everything perfect, and they’re standing behind her shaking. They’re petrified of her.”
