Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., zinged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Thursday for claiming climate change will end the world in 12 years -- and accused her of wanting to make Americans live as “Venezuelan socialists.”
“Let’s bury the hatchet and enjoy the next 12 years because they are going to be our last, right?” he tweeted.

Graham was responding to a tweet Ocasio-Cortez sent that hit Graham for ignoring President Trump’s various controversies and statements, while criticizing Democrats for refusing to allow Trump to make his State of the Union address in the House until the partial government shutdown ends.
But Graham instead took issue with comments she made about climate change on Monday.
Venezuela, once a top economy of South America is now in turmoil as the economy plummets thanks to liberal socialist policies.
Question: Is it possible Rep. Ocasio-Cortez could be wrong about the demise of the planet in 12 years and the American people reject her socialist agenda in 2020?— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 24, 2019
