Vernon Jones Blasts AOC “I hope AOC takes her own advice and stays home. Indefinitely.”

Vernon Jones is not staying quiet after announcing he is resigning as a lawmaker.

Jones tweeted Thursday morning:

.@AOC has argued that once the economy reopens, employees should go on “strike”, refusing to go to work anyways. While me and other everyday Americans will proudly return to work, I hope AOC takes her own advice and stays home.  Indefinitely.

Appearing on Vice, AOC argued “We’re not going back to working 70 hour weeks just so that we can put food on the table.”


When we talk about this idea of reopening society you know, only in America- does the president — when the president tweets about liberation — does he mean go back to work.

When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a lot people should just say no — we’re not going back to that.

We’re not going back to working 70 hour weeks just so that we can put food on the table and not even feel any sort of semblance of security in our lives.


Wednesday, Jones tweeted:

Straight white men aren’t the black community’s enemy. Decades of failed liberal policies that have fostered dependency are.

Jones also thanked those who have been supportive of him, writing:

Thanks to you all, I am almost at 50,000 followers.

While my party may have left me, freedom-loving, country over party Americans have embraced me.

Thank you, all. Our work is only just beginning.

Jones, who endorsed President Trump gave notice this week he’d be resigning from his role in office.

“I intend to help the Democrat Party get rid of its bigotry against Black people that are independent and conservative,” Jones said in the statement announcing his resignation, according to the Journal-Constitution. “I endorsed the White guy (Donald J. Trump) that let Blacks out of jail, and they endorsed the White guy (Joe Biden) that put Blacks in jail.”

Jones bashed Democrats in a series of tweets after his announcement.

I’ve seen more Democrats attack me for my decision to endorse @realDonaldTrump than ask me why.

They’ve used and abused folks in my community for far too long, taking our votes for granted.

Black Americans are waking up. An uprising is near.

.@RepVernonJones to @Rashad1380 : “I don’t care what the Democrat Party does to me. What are they going to do? Spank me?”

The Left hates me because they can’t control me.

They can stay mad.
