Cartoon of the day …

To top it off, AOL/NYDailyNews:

Apparently AOC stands for Amazon Online Customer.

Before freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrated scaring away the online retail giant, she spent thousands on the site.

The democratic socialist’s campaign spent nearly $9,000 on Amazon last year over a six month period — including nearly $300 in chalk.

Last week, Ocasio-Cortez applauded local politicians and advocates for Amazon’s decision to pull out of its plans to build a second headquarters in Long Island City, Queens.

“Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” she tweeted as the deal was canned.

The 29-year-old progressive politician was one of the most vocal critics of the billion-dollar deal to bring the company to Queens. She and other opponents focused their ire on the $3 billion in state and city incentives used to lure the e-commerce giant to the Big Apple, along with its anti-union track record.

    😯 $300 on chalk??? Is this a new name for coke? Do people even do coke anymore? I am sure no teacher spends that much on chalk. Maybe for the whole school? Weird.
