Leftist Representative Surrenders on Social Media

Ocasio-Cortez has stopped social media posting, citing effects on her “health”. The Breitbart reports:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), known for live-streaming herself on Instagram, said on Sunday that she has given up Facebook and is scaling back on all social media, which she described as a “public health risk to everybody.”

The New York Democrat said on Yahoo News’s Skullduggery podcast that she has stopped using her Facebook account — even though her official page remains active and still runs active advertisements sponsored by her campaign, according to the Washington Post.

“I actually think that social media poses a public health risk to everybody,” she said on the podcast. “There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of three, with screen time. But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody. Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.”

The representative said she is trying to limit her consumption of social media to the workweek. “Like every once in a while, you’ll see me hop on Twitter on the weekends, but for the most part, I take consumption of content; when it comes to consumption and reading, I take the weekends off,” she said.

Ocasio-Cortez is realizing that making ridiculous social media claims as a US Congresswoman will earn her robust challenges from conservatives.
