Bernie Sanders: ‘If Elected, I Will Put AOC In Charge Of Math’

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Bernie Sanders has promised that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will play a key role in his White House if he’s elected, saying he will put her in charge of math.

Sanders said he will create a Department of Math that will make sure everyone knows math and figure out ways to bend mathematical realities to conform to his socialist ideas.

“I’m gonna have Alexandria here run all the numbers and make sure everything adds up,” Sanders said in a campaign speech, waving his hands around as though he were on a desert island signaling for help from a passing ship. “Every great socialist has a great math guy—or girl—running the numbers. She can approve the math textbooks, figure out the tax stuff, and count the number of people in the breadlines.”

Sanders said he realized none of his plans made any mathematical sense, but he could just have Ocasio-Cortez crunch the numbers again if buying everyone internet, food, housing, and medical care doesn’t work out. “I’ll just wave my hand and say, ‘Hey, run them again.’ And she’ll run them again and it will all add up.”

Ocasio-Cortez said she was flattered by his comments. “I’m real good at math. Things like adding, subtracting. Numbers, I do numbers. I can carry numbers in the division stuff, but I don’t like to do it much. They get heavy. Oh, and when you need to figure out a tip, you just double the tax. Doubling is when you divide something by 2. No, wait—”

    Oh My God!! A Socialist and a newly elected moron who doesn’t realize that she is being used by her party. It’s too bad I don’t have special powers to bring back Milton & Rose Friedman from the dead to occupy that MATH position.
