A story satirizing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal has been turned into a meme that is circulating without a satire disclaimer. She did not say she wants to repeal daylight saving time because of climate change.
Since the ambitious and controversial Green New Deal debuted last month, Republicans and Democrats have sparred over the cost of the resolution, sometimes erring in their descriptions of the proposal and the costs of climate action and inaction.
A false claim circulating online states that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — in exchange for a border wall — “demands welfare” for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. That story originated on a self-described satire site before spreading elsewhere online without any disclaimer.
