In a speech in front of Al Sharpton’s NAN, AOC ripped a page out of Hillary’s book and she began speaking with a fake Black accent. But, now she claims it’s the same voice she used in talking about Kavanaugh and the same voice she used at the Women’s March.
Unfortunately for her, there are videos of all three and the voices aren’t even close to her speech to Blacks. She claims that she learned to talk to Blacks at school, but I don’t see how that is possible because she lived in an exclusive neighborhood and an exclusive school, where Blacks do not live or go to school in large numbers.
“Folks talking about my voice can step right off,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Women’s March & Kavanaugh speech, same. Any kid who grew up in a distinct linguistic culture & had to learn to navigate class enviros at school/work knows what’s up. My Spanish is the same way.”

To recap, critics felt like AOC laid it on pretty thick during her Friday speech, speaking in an accent she otherwise doesn’t usually use. This was pointed out by Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra, who eventually got blocked after later posting videos that seemed to counter her claim.
