U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein described as "spirited" a discussion she had with children reportedly as young as seven years old, after they called on her to support the Green New Deal on Friday. When the girl responds that she is 16, Feinstein says, "Well you didn't vote for me". "And so it's basically like, there is a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very hard and it does lead, I think young people, to have a legitimate question".

They ran video of Rush Limbaugh screaming that AOC "just keeps spewing this stuff", referring to her policies.

Fact check: As Newsweek points out, "Ocasio-Cortez didn't say that young people do not want to procreate, nor did she say that future generations should not have children at all".

A postal worker who delivers mail to the building said that in the last 10 years he has only seen Ocasio-Cortez intermittently, and that several months' worth of mail regularly accumulates in the mailbox before anyone bothers to collect it.

"The Green New Deal is clearly very expensive", the group said in its analysis.

Singer R. Kelly pleads not guilty to sex abuse charges
However, the 52-year-old singer remains in police custody after not being able to post bail. "He's a rock star". One of the charges describes a videotape allegedly featuring Kelly having sex with a young girl, "the victim".

The freshman congresswoman clarified on Twitter Sunday night that she would not disclose the address of her district residence because of safety concerns.

Ocasio-Cortez has previously revealed herself to be a comics fan, taking time out from launching her Green New Deal in January to quote Watchmen creator Alan Moore in a tweet to her detractors: "None of you understand. People want to work for what they get", failing to mention that the only reason she has been granted the privilege and access to government jets is because of her father. Zuckerman said the group had earlier sought a meeting with Feinstein, but the senator's staff said she was unavailable.

The "Fox & Friends" segment also rolled out a clip featuring Rush Limbaugh bashing Ocasio-Cortez as "blatantly wrong" about everything "she is passionate about" and adding there's no one around to tell her to be quiet and "grow up". "You come in here and you say, 'It has to be my way or the highway.' I don't respond to that". Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). Feinstein, the oldest sitting senator at 85, was primaried from the left in the midterms by a candidate with a robust climate record, and has faced some criticism from Californians for not pursuing a more aggressive environmental agenda.

We need a name for people who don't have a plan consistent with science, and we need the courage to hold them accountable.
