Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (former) chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, is so intensely disliked that even the House Democrats send hates tweet his way, and Friday afternoon he was kicked to the curb. Sure, it was labeled a “resignation” and opportunity to make more money during what’s sure to be the most expensive election cycle ever.


People who aren’t brainwashed, brain dead wannabe socialists dislike him for an entirely different reason than the House Democrats, that reason being that he foisted one Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upon the country. While she’s been a page click factory for every online news publication (and if they try to deny that, they’re either lying or not very good writers), that’s an unforgivable offense.

On the occasion of Saikat Chakrabarti’s legendary loss to senile, over-Botoxed, white grandma Nancy Pelosi, take a moment to sit back and laugh at these sick burns.


The whole drama has been quite Game-of-Thronesy, and Saikat didn’t learn the proper lessons from that show.


Although he was warned.


The typical Twitter response would be to learn to… um, nevermind.


Watch out, @Jehu11. Implying that the Squad is a “coven” could get you into trouble – just ask the man who made a billboard depicting them as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse learned.

Whatever you do, Twitter, don’t say anything that will remind the people of…



But this is probably closer to the truth. During the first few months of this year, disturbing details (details which could send him to federal lockup if true) about Chakrabarti’s financial relationship with AOC’s campaign, Justice Democrats, and Brand New Congress came to light.

Unfortunately, like both a bad rash and Kamala Harris, it’d be foolish to believe we’ve seen the last of Saikat Chakrabarti.


Especially since Soros has just created and funded a new Super PAC for the 2020 election cycle. Plus, it doesn’t seem like Chakrabarti’s quite cut out to lead a movement based on the Green New Deal.
