Madison Gesiotto is not your typical beauty-pageant contestant.
Far from being the stereotypical airhead regurgitating the pop-culture consensus, the former Miss Ohio winner and Miss USA contestant is a politically-astute attorney and an advisory board member for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.
During a recent appearance with Stu Varney on Fox Business Network, Gesiotto set her sights on somebody whose brain power does make her better-suited to pageants than the halls of Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

I think when you look at the majority of people in this country, she does not represent their views […]
I’m not sure where she gets her false sense of authority and power but guess what? She may be the boss of her staff, but she’s not the boss of the American people […]
Her boss is the American people in the 14th District of New York and I’m willing to bet that she won’t be around very long if she continues to go farther and farther and farther left because guess what? These policies aren’t going to work.
Our friends at Western Journal explain that Gesiotto was responding to the following temper tantrum AOC gave in response to criticism of her insane Green New Deal proposal:

Like I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago, and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried.
So people are like, ‘Oh it’s unrealistic. Oh it’s vague. Oh it doesn’t address this little minute thing,’” she continued. “And I’m like, ‘You try. You do it. Cause you’re not. Cause you’re not. So, until you do it, I’m the boss.’ How about that?
Reminder: the Green New Deal called for draconian bans on energy production, mass overhauls on almost every overhaul in America, and insanely expensive renovation of American buildings while simultaneously blowing away the concept of having a budget with new housing, education, food, and income entitlements.
The plan itself was so obviously stupid that Democrats themselves were angered by the prospect of simply being made to vote on it. Yet only people who’ve proposed their own legislation have any standing to notice that it’s expensive, authoritarian, and unworkable?
Notice how that formulation presumes that we need new legislation in these areas in the first place, stacking the deck in Ocasio-Cortez’s favor. But on an even more basic level, Gesiotto is right: the New York socialist has flipped her office entirely on its head.
Members of Congress are public servants, not masters. The burden is on our elected representatives to explain to us why we should enact their proposals, and if we find them wanting then they get scrapped. Instead, AOC seems to see her constituents as guinea pigs on which to test out her every theory of how society should run.
And the worst part? Her liberal New York district, at least, seems to be okay with that.
