WATCH: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, being morally right is more important than being factually correct.


OKAY, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an easy target. And she’s had a lot of cringe-worthy moments. But could this one take the cake?

During a recent interview on 60 Minutes, Anderson Cooper highlighted the fact that the Washington Post had criticized Ocasio-Cortez for misstating statics about Pentagon spending.

Ocasio-Cortez responded: “If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees.

“I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right,” she added.
