Lieberman said Thursday that she's too "left-left" to help the Democratic Party be a sustainable political powerhouse. In truth, AOC is causing far more problems for the Democratic majority than the opposition Republicans.
Yes, but she was on "60 Minutes" and got to call Donald Trump a racist on national television. "We just don't need sniping in our Democratic Caucus".
"Ocasio-Cortez's desired "living wage" of $15 an hour has been a living hell for many small business owners in NY, who've been unable to offset the cost through higher prices", Employment Policies Institute Managing Director Michael Saltsman said in response to the closure.
CNN has reached out to Ocasio-Cortez's spokesperson for comment.
Since her election, Ocasio-Cortez has made a number of controversial statements which have provoked strong responses, including accusing the former White House Chief of Staff and retired Marine Corps General John F. Kelly of "cowardice". Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package. Back home in NY, she has stoked opposition to a deal with Amazon to set up offices in Queens, putting pressure on Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, both Democrats, to justify corporate incentives. Rank and file are peeved that there's a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesn't deserve. She also criticized POLITICO for publishing a story suggesting she considered backing a primary opponent against rising star Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), who many believe could become the first black speaker.
Her spokesman, Corbin Trent, added: "There has been a change in focus - though not a change in ideology".
One day, all of these rightwing pundits and centrist politicians are going to look up and shout, "save us", and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will look down and whisper "no".
AOC knows that - hell, she represents that - and judging by Joe's inane comments to somebody as far right wing as Cavuto... we think Joe may have an idea that his time has always been up, too.
