Ocasio-Cortez vows to ‘run train’ on progressive agenda in bizarre turn of phrase

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., used a strange – and sexually charged – phrase to describe to The Washington Post her plan for implementing a progressive agenda.

“… enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda,” the newly minted congresswoman told the newspaper.

The choice of words sent the Internet into a tizzy, as it has a well-known and highly disturbing connotation. According to the Urban Dictionary, to “run train” means “to gangbang” someone. The phrase was injected into more mainstream parlance in October, after a client of adult film industry lawyer Michael Avenatti claimed – with no evidence – that now-Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh “ran trains” on girls while in high school near Washington, D.C.

The cringeworthy pledge appeared in the transcript of an extensive interview Ocasio-Cortez gave The Post, in which she complained of being targeted by conservatives. She noted a fake photo that has circulated, purporting to show her in a bathtub, and said her critics have run out of ammunition.
