Ocasio-Cortez says she’d be teaching high school if Trump wasn’t elected

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday to Desus & Mero on SHOWTIME‏ that if Trump hadn’t won his presidential race in 2016 she’d most likely be teaching high school right now.

“But times of great challenge can also bring out the best in people too. So I think that’s what we’re really seeing right now,” Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said in a Showtime interview.

Ocasio-Cortez said she doesn’t regret getting into politics even though it can lead to unwanted attention and criticism on social media.

“No,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “In a weird way, that stuff is validation that you’re doing something real.”

“If you’re just flying under the radar and just trying to get your check, not rock the boat, then what’s the point of being in politics? What is the point of doing things if you’re just trying to maintain the status quo? That doesn’t help people,” she said.

Ocasio-Cortez called all the memes she gets thrown at her in her timeline “so weak,” wondering, “How do you have a computer that runs both Windows ‘95 and Twitter at the same time?”
