Longtime actress and co-host of "The View" Whoopi Goldberg scolded the popular freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for "pooping" on members of the Democratic establishment and advised her to "sit still" and "learn the job" first.
"She's been serving for nearly 2 years".
The Daily Caller's Joe Simonson wrote that the dancing story "served as another reminder of how desperate the media wishes to portray the GOP and its voters as something very different from what they truly are".
But as The Washington Post's Fact Checker noted, the $21 trillion claim was quite, well, fuzzy. We think of the president as having a "bully pulpit" because everything they say is newsworthy given their power, but anyone can have a bully pulpit. "Have a great weekend everyone", she tweeted along with the new video.
"Oh my goodness", she said. "These are legitimate questions not meant to attack. Is there a rubric?" She quickly retracted her statements, saying that it was "legal advice that any person would give" Trump Jr, but added that she apologized to him, in case he "felt genuinely threatened".

Her idea of radical is to make the US a Socialist State. But it's not the same thing as the president lying about immigrants.
Since then historians, economists, and journalists have jumped to Ocasio-Cortez's defense to point out that the proposal is not as outlandish as it seems.
Analysis from The Washington Post found that if taxes on the approximately 16,000 Americans who earned more than $US10 million in 2016 was raised from the 39.6% they paid that year to 70%, the federal government would earn an extra $US72 billion each year.
More recently, Trump was slammed for promoting a GOP campaign ad critics likened to the infamous "Willie Horton" ads supporting George H.W. Bush in the 1988 presidential election.
To suggestions her proposals are unrealistic, she told CBS: "We pay more per capita in healthcare and education for lower outcomes than many other nations".
"And the State Department says that there is, quote, their words: no credible evidence of any terrorist coming across the border from Mexico", he said. "And people know that if you're going to come after me, you're opening yourself up".
