Available on her website are several garments of clothing emblazoned with phrases like “tax the rich” and “the green new deal”. Another t-shirt has “student debt” with a line through it, representing AOC’s belief that student debt should be wiped out.
Just like everything AOC does – like wearing clothes they don’t like, flying on planes and getting her hair cut – the new merch has enraged some people.
Conservatives have complained about the price tag of some of the garments.
They’ve also accused her of hypocrisy given she’s a socialist but these garments are an active participation in capitalism.
Not one to go down without a fight, AOC responded in just the way we’ve come to expect. She pointed out that the merchandise is all made in the USA by workers who are paid a fair wage.
Trump’s campaign have insisted their merch was USA-made. But it’s no secret his ties, suits and other clothing has, over the years, been made elsewhere.
