High-profile congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is out of step with most Americans, according to a former Miss USA contestant who serves on the advisory board for President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign.

Madison Gesiotto, an attorney and a former Miss Ohio, said that no matter how much the liberal Democrat from New York insists her way is the only way, most Americans would disagree.

“I think when you look at the majority of people in this country, she does not represent their views,” Gesiotto said during a March 1 appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co” that Gesiotto uploaded to Twitter on Sunday.

Gesiotto was responding to remarks Ocasio-Cortez made in late February, in which the congresswoman claimed that “I’m the boss” because she is pushing initiatives like the Democrats’ Green New Deal.

The comments engendered plenty of criticism, but Gesiotto’s was among the most severe.

“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,” Gesiotto said, noting that the freshman legislator is not even “the boss of her party.”

Gesiotto said the purpose of a legislator is not to be the boss, but listen to the real bosses.

“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,” she said.

Gesiotto elaborated upon the out-of-touch nature of the Democrats’ leftward drift in a recent commentary piece for The Hill.

“Many of the Democratic candidates for 2020 have been fully embracing socialist policies, but Americans simply do not want a socialist president,” she wrote.

Despite that, some conservative commentators are warning of the dangers of socialism.

“Socialism promises ‘prosperity, equality, and security’ but has repeatedly delivered ‘poverty, misery, and tyranny.’ The world has seen how socialist policies have destroyed countries like Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea,” Gesiotto wrote.

Gesiotto wrote that the socialist dream is, in fact, most Americans’ nightmare.

“The United States will never be a socialist country because Americans do not want socialism and will never let this happen,” she wrote.

“Simply put, an overwhelming majority of voters do not want a socialist to serve as president of the United States.”

She wrote that regardless of what voters want, far-left candidates keep proposing budget-busting bonanzas.

“Yet, the Democrats continue to propose socialist policies in their campaign platforms. Everything from free college tuition and the Green New Deal to universal child care and Medicare for all have been supported by many of the 2020 candidates,” she wrote.

“Sure, some of these policies might sound great at first. However, when you dig deeper into all the details, it becomes clear that they are nothing more than unaffordable first steps toward disaster in the United States.”

She wrote that Democrats have tuned out out the majority.

“Not only do Americans very strongly oppose socialism, but Americans truly want less government rather than more government,” Gesiotto wrote.

“Americans do not want a socialist president, and the Democrats are just not listening.”

    Its a shame so many dems are mislead by the media and don’t know the first thing about socialism. Before they vote for a demo, they better get their blinders off. Our stupid news media is so busy gossip about trump like a bunch of catty women. They should be informing the public about socialism. Most people won’t bother reading about it, not smart enough to understand it and only goes by the bias, dumb, misleading media; they probably don’t know much about it either as all they do is report trashy news.

    I’ll never understand why anyone would want the government running their lives. The president wants people to work if they can for benefits. That’s been in my state for years. If anyone is going hungry here it’s because they’re to proud to take advantage of the food pantries that are literally everywhere. The socialist think everyone should be standing in government bread lines. They want us feeding our families like the great depression where the government controlled what you ate. Socialism takes away the dreams of young people to want to go somewhere in life and be something. Instead they’ll be told what they can be.

    The Democrats aren’t listening because they don’t care what Americans want! The only thing the Democrats are trying to do is get their power back so they can control the American People!!
    Take a good look at our unsecured Border! Look at what is going on there! How many Invasions are we gonna have before they break down the GD door! If they are bringing in sickness, how are we gonna know if the Democrats keep sneaking them in and they keep finding ways in on their own! One person sick is all it’s gonna take before we have an epidemic that takes out half the Country! Wake the hell up People! We need our Border secured NOW not after this happens! Who will be held responsible when Terrorists get in and we have another 9-11?! Pretty easy to get in right now isn’t it!? I am going to blame the Democrats when this happens because they want open borders and they are coddling MS-13, Terrorists, And Illegal Criminals!!! Hope you guys are willing to take on that Burden!! Along with the rest of your miserable half crazy people in your Socialist Party! And don’t get me started on the babies born held on a table parts harvested and then killed!! That is NOT abortion that is MURDER! Pure and simple! And to think you were worried about the illegals children belong held in another place away from there criminal parents when they came through the Border ILLEGALLY!!! Sounded like you cared about the children! HA HA!! Now we know your true feelings on children! You want them killed!!! You are Satanists! You are actually a terrorist party!!
