Trump's Response to Ocasio-Cortez Calling Him a 'Racist': 'Who Cares'


When someone says something stupid, irrelevant, and false about you, what’s the best thing to do? Ignore them!

Today, President Trump simply and beautifully gave us an example of just that when he answered questions from reporters at the White House.


“Mr. President, congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez called you a racist,” a reporter stated. The reporter was referring to Cortez’s interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, when she responded to Cooper’s question, “Do you believe President Trump is a racist?” with a, “Yeah, yeah, no question.”

“Who did?” the president responded. 

“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez,” the reporter repeated.

“Who cares?” Trump replied. He then moved on to the next question like someone who realized they had bigger fish to fry. 

Awesome! But as you’d expect, the “Democrat’s great hope” didn’t see it the same way anyone with a working brain would. She saw it as if she "got under" the president’s skin.

In a tweet she wrote, “I bartended for years in New York City. I understand guys like this like the back of my hand. We got under his skin”

So, somehow brushing you off with no interest in hearing your inaccurate perspective of them is the same as you serving some dudes at a bar? I’m not going to make myself try and understand her, I’m just going to do what the president did and move on without considering this very weird viewpoint. 

Here are some tweets for your pleasure:
