New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez truly is delusional and believes she is here to save the day for everyone.
AOC believes this so much that now she is adding time traveler to her list of superpowers.
In a narrated new video from the freshman Congresswoman she travels to the future where her magical Green New Deal has saved planet Earth from the evil Republicans.
Here is more from Fox News:
In a video released on Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., told a “story from the future” in which her “Green New Deal” transformed the American economy and rescued the United States from the dire threat of climate change.

The freshman congresswoman predicted that Democrats would take both chambers of Congress and the White House by 2020 — ushering in a “decade of the Green New Deal” that prompted the “social and ecological transformation to save the planet.”
“Lots of people gave up, they said we were doomed,” she said in the video in which she blamed fossil fuel companies for the damage.
“But some of us remembered that as a nation, we’d been in peril before — the Great Depression, WWII — we knew from our history how to pull together to overcome impossible odds,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Championed by Ocasio-Cortez, the “Green New Deal,” has been criticized as unrealistic and too expensive. According to a conservative think tank’s estimate, the plan could cost upwards of $93 trillion, more than four times the national debt as of April 15, 2019.
But in the video, published by the climate-oriented Sunrise Movement, Ocasio-Cortez described Green New Deal legislation as “the kind of swing-for-the-fence ambition we needed.”
“Finally, we were entertaining solutions on the scale of the crises we faced without leaving anyone behind,” she said.
Her plan included public works projects, a “federal jobs guarantee,” and Medicare-for-all, which she predicted would become “the most popular social program in American history.”
