Ivanka Trump Castigates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over Green New Deal

Dianne Feinstein Fumbles in Meeting With Young Climate Activists Over Green New Deal

In a now-mega-viral video, Mrs. Feinstein told the young activists who confronted her over the weekend that she's "been doing this for 30 years" and "I know what I'm doing".

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) left a few people scratching their heads after she declared herself the "boss" of the Green New Deal, despite criticisms that the deal is unrealistic and extremely expensive.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein was scorned on social media by people who accused her of talking down to middle and high school students who called on her to support the Green New Deal in a widely watched, edited video.

"Listen, it's like your kids spewing nonsense at you and you're like, 'Quiet, quiet, learn something before you come back to me.′ They're just letting her go", co-host Pete Hegseth complained of Ocasio-Cortez's proposed Green New Deal, which is gaining Democratic support.

It was clear from the tone of Feinstein's response that the six-term senator thought the ambitious strategy - in line with what climate science says is necessary to avert 1.5 degrees C of warming - is too heavy of a political lift.

Expel any thoughts of pressuring Pakistan, FM Qureshi tells India
In the wake of the Pulwama attack , India has reportedly been pressuring the FATF to take strict action against Pakistan . However, the Indian government denied there were any attacks on Kashmiris in the aftermath of last week's bombing .

When a protester shouted at the senator in 2017 that she should take a stand and automatically oppose Trump's nomination of Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court rather than examine his record first, Feinstein responded coolly: "Young man, I've made more stands in my lifetime than you are old, by far". "I may do that, we'll see", she said. Her comments on Friday line up with some of the more disdainful observations on the Green New Deal from the Democratic old guard.

In fact, in her Sunday Instagram stream, Ocasio-Cortez answered a question from a viewer who asked whether it was "still OK" to have children in the era of climate change. "People want to work for what they get", Ms. Trump said.

"I find it hard to believe that this isn't an SNL or The Onion sketch - did Senator Feinstein really speak like that to a bunch of kids?" She's generally known as a moderate, only recently declaring opposition to the death penalty and support for states who legalized recreational marijuana.

In December, shortly after being elected to the House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced that she would be paying her interns $15 hourly. She added, "I've been in the Senate for a quarter of a century, and I know what can pass, and I know what can't pass".

Later, a young woman stresses the need for a climate plan with "bold, transformative action", and Feinstein replies, "Well, you know better than I do".
