Ocasio-Cortez Vs Kylie Jenner: It’s ON!
As the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie Jenner, officially becomes a billionaire, Ocasio-Cortez declared the existence of billionaires to be immoral.
You can see where this whole thing is going, yes?
Jenner is the youngest-ever self-made billionaire, reaching a ten-figure fortune at a younger age than even Mark Zuckerberg (who was 23 when he hit that mark).
Freshman Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez suggested in a 60 Minutes interview that the highest-earning Americans may need to pay an income tax rate as high as 60 to 70 percent to combat carbon emissions.
Ocasio-Cortez also suggests that the mere existence of billionaires is both immoral, and a threat to American democracy.
“I do think that a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,”
So the question remains, what are Kylie’s feelings about Ocasio-Cortez’ 70% marginal tax rate?
How does Ocasio-Cortez feel about Kylie making a billion dollars, seemingly overnight?
The two women really do collide Ocasio-Cortez and her socialism with capitalism.
For Jenner, her company’s astounding success was a surprise. She told Forbes that she “did not foresee the future” when it came to the success of her products – she was just trying to sell some makeup and monetize her massive social-media following (she has 128 million followers on Instagram0.
With that kind of growth, and even using a conservative multiple from the booming makeup industry, Forbes estimates Jenner’s company is worth at least $900 million. She owns all of it. Add in the cash Jenner has already pulled from the profitable business, and the 21-year-old is now a billionaire, with an estimated fortune of $1 billion. She’s the youngest-ever self-made billionaire, reaching a ten-figure fortune at a younger age than even Mark Zuckerberg (who was 23 when he hit that mark).
“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” says Jenner, who is the youngest billionaire in the world. “But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
The breakthrough for Jenner came when she partnered with cosmetics retailer Ulta to begin selling her lip kits in stores. When her products first hit the shelves, they ignited a sales frenzy that surprised her partners.
When Kylie Cosmetics launched in Ulta in 50 states, the reaction was a real-life version of the online rush Jenner created years earlier, when her initial kits sold out online in less than a minute. Ulta shoppers went wild. In some stores inventory was gone in hours. “It sold out faster than we planned,” admits Tara Simon, Ulta’s senior vice president of merchandising.
In reality, Ocasio-Cortez has followed a similar capitalist past! Only in America can you go from a bartender, to the U.S. Congress, to a million dollar Netflix deal, to a comic book character, to..well, they sky is the limit for her.
But Ocasio-Cortez wants to end that. She despises capitalism. She could have never done what she has done in a socialist country.
And she does not understand the simple concept of the wealth in a country and how it gives everyone an exceptional standard of living. We want more billionaires, not less. Where does she think her Netflix contract came from?
Yes, Ocasio-Cortez Vs Kylie Jenner: It’s ON!
