The socialist congresswoman from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was once again in the headlines Friday, this time for saying her “privilege” is that she was born a “cisgendered woman.”

She’s also claimed the world will end in 12 years if global warming isn’t handled, that President Trump is a racist, she will “run train” in Congress and her campaign was something akin to the moon landing.

Her comment Friday got the attention of talk-radio show host Rush Limbaugh, who took only seconds to put her in her place.

“Well, I’ll tell you what my privilege is, Cortez. My privilege is being an American. My privilege is being born in the United States of America. My privilege flows from the two the greatest political documents ever written: the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. My privilege was to be born in a country that acknowledges the origins of my freedom and liberty and my right to pursue happiness. And that’s God,” he said.

Fox News reported Ocasio Cortez boasted of never having to know the “trauma” of being transgender.

“Almost every single person in this country can acknowledge some privilege of some type, you know?” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I’m a cisgendered woman. You know, I will never know the trauma of feeling like I’m not born in the right body. And that, that is a privilege that I have – a no matter how poor my family was when I was born.”

Online dictionaries explain that “cisgender” is having a gender identity that matches the person’s sex.

Limbaugh said, “There is no other country on earth where this privilege extends to everybody who is born in the United States.

“My privilege is not exclusive. You have this privilege, too, Cortez. And all of your other bigender, cisgender, nesgender, ifgender, whatever, all the rest of you out there, you have the same privilege. Just you don’t see it as a privilege. You see it as an obstacle or as an unfairness, racism, bigotry, sexism, homophobia, but I look at it as a privilege to be born in the United States of America. I don’t need much more than that, at least given to me.”
