Appearing on the new Showtime program called "Desus and Mero", she was asked whether or not she would have considered a run for Congress had President Trump not been elected.

In, Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at people who pointed out that $2.5 billion of the $3 billion represented future tax breaks - not a large pile of cash that could now be spent elsewhere.

A self-proclaimed socialist, Ocasio-Cortez says many Democrats have eased their stance and begun embracing her ideals. "When that happens, do you kind of regret getting into politics?" host Desus Nice asked the congresswoman.

"It is heavy. But in a weird way, that stuff is validation that you're doing something real", she said. Ocasio-Cortez said. "Because if you're flying under the radar, just trying to get your check, not rock the boat, then what's the point of being in politics?" "What is the point of doing things if you're just trying to maintain a status quo that doesn't help people?"

Ocasio-Cortez went on to explain that the memes about "cow farts" are related to her Green New Deal, which states that "we need to take a look at factory faming" and how it's harming the environment. "I mean, it shows that everyday Americans still have the power to organize and fight for their communities and they can have more say in this country than the richest man in the world", she said, referring to Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. "But, it's to say, listen, we got to address factory farming", Ocasio-Cortez added.

The congresswoman further stated reducing climate change is going to come down every choice an individual makes.

The document was initially denounced by Ocasio-Cortez's staff afterward, but her office later acknowledged a draft was accidentally published.

The premiere episode is available for free now on YouTube.
