The left usually understands optics. They play the optics game far better than the right. But every now and then, their egos get the better of them and they end up making the worst possible optics moves imaginable. Case-in-point: Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attending the Met Gala with a dress that reads “Tax The Rich.”
Of course, you won’t see any poor or homeless people in attendance. You won’t see many middle-class people for that matter unless they’re with the press or invited by a rich friend. The tickets to get into the exclusive event are $30,000 each.
The dress AOC wore was lovely other than the propaganda plastered to her back, and it wasn’t cheap. Estimates range from high four- to low five-digits for a price tag. The dress alone could feed a family for weeks if not months.

Cost per Ticket: $30,000.
Virtue signaling to your base while partying—without a mask—with the people you claim to hate: Priceless. https://t.co/51bVQqZNn1

It’s not that they’re hypocrites. They simply view themselves as the priest-class of the religion of communism. If you do as you’re told, you can be treated as a standard parishioner. If you don’t, you’ll burned at the stake like any heretic.
But you can never be a priest. https://t.co/RT72MP7sTv

What makes @AOC a bigger fraud:
The "tax the rich" dress while she's hanging out with a bunch of wealthy leftwing elites or the lack of masks after spending the past 18 months as one of the biggest authoritarian mask Karens in the country? https://t.co/pE84Pjquh1

Of course, nobody at the very intimate event could be seen wearing a face mask, including AOC herself.
Leaders of the Democratic-Socialists know how to virtue signal, but they never let it get in the way of their extravagant lifestyles. Sadly, no Democrat nor mainstream media shill will blink an eye at this. AOC is too useful as their idiot for the left to tear her down.
