Famous British TV Personality and co-anchor of Good Morning Britain Piers Morgan has received widespread criticism for his dig at Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s bartending career.
Earlier Ocasio-Cortez slammed the first daughter, Ivanka Trump, for attending the G20 Summit in Osaka, along with her husband Jared Kushner. The criticism came from AOC, when a video showing Ivanka’s failed attempt of getting involved in the conversation among world leaders at the summit emerged.
AOC commented on the video, calling Ivanka unqualified to be present at the event. She further took to Twitter, saying, “It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.”
Piers Morgan soon retaliated with a low dig and said, “Could be worse… Ivanka could have been a bar-tender 18 months ago.” With this tweet, Morgan not only defended Ivanka, but belittled AOC’s career as a bartender.
AOC used to work as a bartender and a waitress at a restaurant in the Union Square earlier. However, soon the tables turned for her after she defeated Joe Crowley in the mid-term elections in 2018 for New York’s 14th congressional district.
Ocasio-Cortez in her reply to Morgan, said, “Actually, that would make government better – not worse. We’d probably have healthcare and living wages by now.”
Soon Piers Morgan started receiving scathing reply from the army of supporters of AOC for condemning her job role as bartender.
While the attendance of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner at the G20 summit in Japan is controversial and a clear example of favoritism, it also reveals that to be a part of the Trump administration, one doesn’t really need skills.
With Piers Morgan devaluing AOC’s previous job in an undignified response and later clarifying the same shows that there might be a need for people rising from common jobs to change the present scenario of the politics.
