Saikat Chakrabarti, Chief of Staff To AOC Is Out

Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff to fellow Squad Member, AOC is out and is departing the office, according to reports made yesterday.

According to this, Communications Director, Corbin Trent, will also be switching positions and will be transitioning to AOC’s campaign staff. Chakrabarti and Trent both worked alongside one another with Justice Democrats.

Saikat has decided to leave the office of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to work with New Consensus to further develop plans for a Green New Deal. We are extraordinarily grateful for his service to advance a bold agenda and improve the lives of the people in NY-14. From his co-founding of Justice Democrats to his work on the Ocasio-Cortez campaign and in the official office, Saikat’s goal has always been to do whatever he can to help the larger progressive movement, and we look forward to continuing working with him to do just that.”-Corbin Trent

Help the larger progressive movement? Whilst lining his pockets as well and donning t-shirts depicting a Nazi collaborator? Guess that did not win him any brownie points with Pelosi. Just as well, Chakrabarti will move on to New Consensus to advance an even more socialist-err-“bold”-agenda, they say.

The big question here is–did Chakrabarti jump or was he pushed? Could it be Chakrabarti’s shifty move of using companies that he set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used? All of this after Ocasio-Cortez pledged to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics? Or maybe it was his inflammatory Tweet that has since been deleted?

Instead of ‘fiscally conservative but socially liberal,’ let’s call the New Democrats and Blue Dog Caucus the ‘New Southern Democrats’. They certainly seem hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s.”-Saikat Chakrabarti

Or perhaps his departure came as a nudge after Chakrabarti said this of Sharice Davids (D-Kansas) with regard to her vote in late June for a bipartisan bill to appropriate money to government operations on the southern border:

Her votes are showing her to enable a racist system.”-Saikat Chakrabarti

Another Tweet that has since been deleted.

Or maybe, just maybe, Chakrabati’s departure was brought on by his admittance that the Green New Deal was not about the environment at all:

The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.

Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”-Saikat Chakrabarti

Of course, we know the GND is not at all about the climate by eliminating air travel and farting cows. Chakrabarti loves farting cows, in fact he thinks they’re mighty tasty on a bun with some cheese. So does AOC. She just doesn’t eat burgers for “like, breakfast, lunch and dinner” like those backwoods, ignorant Americans do. She balances things out. Burger for lunch, fancy cheese from Whole Foods for dinner and an airport croissant for breakfast. Running corporations and jobs for residents out of large cities is hard work. Just like convincing individuals that $93 trillion in new government spending over ten years is a stupendous idea. More hard work? Writing compelling (for some), entertaining (for us) posts on Twitter. Can AOC be as whack without the assistance of Chakrabati? This to be determined…

We’re sure, though, that this is not the last we see of the shady-as-all-get-out Saikat Chakrabati. Alert the burger paparazzi and follow the New Consensus money in the meantime. Make some popcorn, too, because the wheels may be about to fall off of the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bus. Maybe we’ll get lucky and it will break down at a bar and stay there this time.
