Adulting Is Hard! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Needs A Vacation From Work

Adulting is hard, y’all! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has shown us time and again that she doesn’t understand basic economics, has zero clue about our Constitution, and don’t get me started on her plans for health insurance. Speaking of health, it seems that hers is in peril or something. You see, she already needs a vacation from her new job! This from a woman who was touted as a champion of the working class just a few months ago!

But life is hard, y’all, and she needs a vacation!

“I’m taking a few days to take care of myself before what is sure to be an eventful term,” the incoming New York congresswoman tweeted.

“For working people, immigrants, & the poor, self-care is political — not because we want it to be, but bc of the inevitable shaming of someone doing a face mask while financially stressed. So I’ve decided to take others along with me on IG as I learn what self-care even means and why it’s important.”

Are your eyes rolling? Mine are. BIGLY.

Self-care is political? What the hell does that even mean??!!

Shamed for doing a face mask while financially stressed? She evidently doesn’t shop at Walgreens or Ulta. You can get face masks there for practically nothing.

Then there’s the fact that her vacation will include posts on Instagram. I’ve always thought the purpose of a vacation was to “get away from it all,” included shutting off social media as well.

As for learning what self-care is and why it’s important…I had NO IDEA that people needed to be taught how to take care of themselves. We are living in stupid times.

Oh, but wait! There’s more to Alexandria’s little vacay. You see, Zen has left the building!

“Before the campaign, I used to practice yoga 3-4x/week, eat nutritiously, read and write for leisure,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “As soon as everything kicked up, that all went out the window. I went from doing yoga and making wild rice and salmon dinners to eating fast food for dinner and falling asleep in my jeans and makeup.”

Welcome to reality, toots. You wanted to run for office. YOU took on the responsibility of a campaign! Don’t go crying in your granola because your four-times-a-week yoga sessions had to go by the wayside! And, for goodness sakes, clutching pearls because once in a while you fell asleep with your makeup still on??!! OH. THE. HORROR.

I’d urge her to take a Civics class as well, but I doubt it would do any good.

Tom is correct; vacations should not be political stunts that pander to immigrants or the rest of us poor schlubs who work one or more jobs.

As for adulting? We have a long wait on that. No sooner had she gotten to Capital Hill to attend freshmen orientation, then she plopped her skinny butt on the floor of Nancy Pelosi’s office to protest climate change. Her latest is that she can’t understand the ethics rules around gifts versus people in Congress who build investment portfolios.

What I find ironic is that she has been whining about not being able to afford a place to stay in D.C., but had the money prior to her campaign to spend on facials, yoga four times a week, and salmon dinners. Tell me again how she’s a “champion of the working class.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez evidently doesn’t like that work, REAL work, is hard. She doesn’t like adulting in any way, shape, or form.

Stock up on popcorn and head desk protection, folks. Congress in 2019 is in for one helluva bumpy ride!

    Occasional-Cortex (and the mouth breathing free shit army that voted for her) is proof of just how few brain cells are required to support life…

    Oh, I’m betting that she has a GOOD handle on everything “self-“.

    I had NO IDEA that people needed to be taught how to take care of themselves.
    Well, if they weren’t taught how to be an adult, then they might have issues with that. But, it’s also a well-known problem with some personality types that they do not take care of themselves – and yes, they often have to be taught to do so. (The problem ones are generally the “giver” types, rather than the “driven” types. Somehow, despite her “champion of the meek and lowly” veneer, I doubt she is of the “giver” type.)

    That’s because you didn’t have a full-time job, sweety. Now you do.

    I’d urge her to take a Civics class as well
    She won’t have time what with all her championing and all.

    As a working person I refer to that as a vacation.
    First, I don’t think she has ever been a “working person” in the sense of 40+ hours a week.
    Second, this isn’t about the vacation, it’s how to make a vacation into a virtue-signaling statement. Because EVERYTHING is political now.

  • Wfjag says:

    She’s more self-centered than my cat (who, at least, kills vermin instead on acting like one).

  • Little Miss Snowflake hasn’t even started her job yet and already needs a vacation?

    Practically (no, not “practically”, definitively) the poster child of the fragile little dear.

  • Jim says:

    ”… and falling asleep in my jeans and makeup.”

    I guess that’s better and safer than falling asleep in another person’s jeans and face paint. This sheila makes the clinically insane appear normal.

    • GWB says:

      It’s not falling asleep in another person’s jeans and makeup that’s problematic, so much as waking up in them, when you did not fall asleep in them.

  • Mrs. M says:

    falling asleep in my jeans and makeup.”

    Well Cookiepuss. I’m sure that Este’ Lauder is more than happy to sell you some makeup remover to go with that top o’ the line face Spackle you buy from them. I know better that to think you have a single item of plain old Cover Girl in your makeup bag.

    One word, Honey, to get your life in order, your mind straight, and your colon cleansed; Goop!

  • Mark A Terribile says:

    Someone send her a copy of =12 Rules for Life=. Every week.

  • Raphael says:

    I suppose she expects to get the Nobel Peace Prize just for showing up for work!

  • Kevin says:

    I can’t wait for your next blog post on Spanky and his work ethic. Fair and balanced! Your leader sets the tone for conservative standards …. that’s a terifying thought but hey, your silence on his “work ethic” is deafening. Keep up the partisan rhetoric that divides the nation. Have a nice day.

    • GWB says:


      And it’s the folks who actually divvy everyone up into tribes and scream “Heretic!” at those who don’t go along that are dividing the nation.

      • Scott says:

        Kevin is just as delusional as Occasional-Cortex.. he reminds me of a seagull.. every so often, he flys in, squawks loudly and incoherently, craps all over everything then flys away…

  • Mark A Terribile says:

    I suggest ‘Occlusional-Cortex’ for a new-and-improved moniker.

  • “Wild rice and salmon dinners” and “financially stressed” don’t fit together.

    We mock this imbecile, but shouldn’t forget that she’s heading to Congress. Financial stress? If she gets her way the U.S. will be Venezuela, and we’ll be reduced to eating vermin with Wfjag’s cat.
