Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is out explaining things again, obviously taking Americans for fools:
Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent & are scared to pay their rent and so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don’t have money so… they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry.
