Yesterday, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to resurrect some obvisouly fake news in a back-and-forth with Laura Ingraham on Twitter.
During that exchange AOC slammed Ingraham for inviting on a guest who AOC says “faked their employment at Lenox Hill hospital.” Also, she said that the doctor was “tout[ing] a COVID “treatment” that…a man may have died trying to self-administer.”
Didn’t you just put a doctor on your show who faked their employment at Lenox Hill hospital and touted a COVID “treatment” that you tweeted & Twitter had to remove because a man may have died trying self-administer it?
I’m sorry, why are you on TV again? https://t.co/Lfc6RvtBDS

Concerning the former claim, Ingraham answered herself. She insisted that AOC needs to learn the difference between “admitting privileges” and “employed by,” before “maligning a man who has spent his life teaching and saving lives….”
Typical liberal. Doesn’t know the meaning of the phrase “admitting privileges” versus “employed by”—maligning a man who has spent his life teaching and saving lives of late stage cancer patients. https://t.co/omIV4IMlM7

But the former claim of AOC was not the most absurd part of the tweet, by far.
The claim that a man died trying to administer the treatment touted by said doctor and Trump is completely false. In fact, this narrative has been widely debunked for two weeks now.
The critism of this drug started, of course, when Trump brought it up as a possible treatment.
Trump said maybe the treatment would work, maybe it wouldn’t, but that he was optimistic. This caused Left media to loose their minds.
The media ran stories and asked questions that made it seem as if Trump was saying this was definitely a miracle cure. They also downplayed the study that showed it was working pretty well during testing.
A few days later, the media found the biggest idiots in the entire world. A woman and her husband ingested fish tank chemicals, supposedly because it had a similarly sounding name to the drug in question.
The media then pinned this on Trump, despite it being complete nonsense, as reported here by Richard Moorhead.
This isn’t a case of some story that was accidentally reported incorrectly. It was a blatant misrepresentation by the media in order to discredit Trump.
Also, this isn’t a case of AOC just simply reporting a verifed story that later turned out to be false. The coverage debunking this narrative was extensive and nearly impossible to avoid, and the narrative was utterly absurd to begin with.
It’s clear that AOC is just spreading fake news either for the purposes discrediting her political opposition or because she is a complete moron…or both.
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
