AOC Defends Tax the Rich’ Dress at $30,000 Per Ticket Met Gala, It’s My ‘Responsibility’ To Party With Elites, ‘Haters’

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



AOC who makes an annual salary of $174,000 as a congresswoman was wearing a “Tax the Rich” dress at an elitist event held in New York City. An event that cost $30k a ticket. In fact, some of the tables reportedly cost more than $275,000. And do you think the folks attending this event were wearing the masks, that they demand the rest of us wear? It’s such a joke. Naturally, the corrupt mainstream media will not expose this blatant hypocrisy.

AOC Defends: It’s My ‘Responsibility’ To Party With Elites, ‘Haters’

By Daily Wire, September 14, 2021

Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) tried to defend herself online after she was swarmed with criticism for wearing an emblazoned “Tax the Rich” dress to the Met Gala, where tables could reportedly cost more than $275,000 and individual tickets are priced at around $30,000.

AOC scolded “haters” about the criticism and contended that going to the fancy event with rich elites was actually her just doing her job as a congresswoman in New York City.

“And before haters get wild flying off the handle, New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public,” the representative wrote via Twitter. “I was one of several in attendance in this evening.”

In the same Twitter thread, Ocasio-Cortez rationalized that the “medium is the message” and emphasized that her designer is a “Black woman immigrant designer.”

“The medium is the message,” read a screen-capped image from AOC’s Instagram account.

“Proud to work with @aurorajames as a sustainably focused, Black woman immigrant designer who went from starting her dream @brothervellies at a flea market in Brooklyn to winning the @cfda against all odds – and then work together to kick open the doors at the Met,” she wrote. “The time is now for childcare, healthcare, and climate action for all. Tax the Rich.”

“And yes, BEFORE anybody starts wilding out – NYC elected officials are regularly invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing our city’s cultural institutions that serve the public. I was one of several in attendance. Dress is borrowed via @brothervellies,” the post continued.

For good measure, AOC added, “All-BIPOC/women/LGBT+ team.”
