Mike Pompeo was speaking in Florida at the CPAC event this weekend. Pompeo dropped a joke in his speech about Squad member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, but it flopped and the joke was actually just really bad.

Pompeo was saying how Democrats want to dismantle military spending, and he said they're going to trade "army green for AOC green."

Womp womp.

WATCH Pompeo try doing standup with an abysmal reaction:



Think whatever you want about Pompeo, AOC, the military, the Green New Deal - none of it matters in this video.

Nothing matters when you're telling a joke other than 1) the joke, and 2) the delivery.

Pompeo gets a 0/10 for his joke telling ability. The delivery fell flat and the joke just wasn't funny.

Look folks, if we're going to crack some jokes, then make sure they're good ones.

We can give Pompeo another chance, but he better bring the funny on the next one.

When it comes to the Green New Deal, don't forget that back in 2019, the Green New Deal died in the Senate and Democrats helped kill it.

The Green New Deal, Democrats' aspirational proposal to confront climate change and address social justice, died Tuesday in the Senate.

And Democrats helped slay it.

No senator voted for it; 57 (including all Republicans and a handful of Democrats) voted against it; and the remaining 43 (all Democrats) voted "present" as a protest.

The vote was on a procedural matter to continue debate on the bill crafted by liberal firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. At least 60 votes were needed to keep the bill moving, meaning the legislation is dead – for now.

Congressional Democrats viewed the effort by Republicans – who ridicule the plan as socialist fantasy – to bring the ambitious plan to the floor as little more than a political ploy to divide Democrats rather than a serious effort to confront an impending planetary crisis.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., called it a "sham" hours before the roll call vote.

Democrats had asked the Republican leadership to schedule hearings with experts and build broad support for a bipartisan solution before going straight to the floor. Republicans demurred.

"Climate change is not a joke," said Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal with Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. "Mocking it and comparing it to cartoon characters while the Midwest is flooded and people have died because of climate-related extreme weather is shameful."
