Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just sunk the Democrats with an arrogant statement about Joe Biden and Barack Obama.
If you wondered if the Democrats would blow it again, as they do in election after election, look no further than AOC.
From Yahoo: “I’m very supportive of Bernie’s run. … I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” Ocasio-Cortez said, adding, “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”
While Biden hasn’t officially entered the race, he is leading many polls of the primary field. Yahoo News asked Ocasio-Cortez if she would support him.
“I don’t know. I mean … I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is,” she said. Yet she seemed decidedly unenthusiastic about the prospect of a Biden candidacy. “That does not particularly animate me right now,” Ocasio-Cortez said. The congresswoman said she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden White House bid.
“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”
Might she run for higher office one day herself?
“I really don’t know,” she said. “I think about it every once in a while, but … this is pretty hard already.”
From Fox News: There is a packed field with at least 18 Democrats have entered the presidential race – including Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., who announced his run on Sunday. Biden, who is projected to be a front runner in the race, has not yet said he’s running.
Ocasio-Cortez, who was an organizer for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign, said she was still supportive of the Vermont senator’s run, but that other candidates have also caught her attention.
“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she told “Skullduggery.” “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”
