Joe Lieberman, 76, Says AOC, 29, Isn't The Future

Donald Trump

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has retaliated against fellow Democrat Joe Lieberman, who'd said he didn't see her as the future of the party.

Technically, it's the same political party, but a newer swath of lawmakers are filling seats in the Capitol, including Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman already making ripples in her first week.

Ocasio-Cortez has been very vocal on social media and unafraid of criticizing members of her own party.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, left, and D-N.Y., Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., center, walk down the House steps.

Recently Ocasio-Cortez told Politico that she wasn't interested in backing progressive candidates against incumbent Democrats, insisting that she's "focused on my job".

As reported by The New York Daily News on Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez's campaign has been hit with a New York state fine for failing to carry workers' compensation coverage.

U.S. shutdown stokes air safety fears
The FAA suspended training and limited safety efforts to "urgent continued operational activity to protect life and property". TSA hasn't heard of any other airport planning to shut an entire concourse like the one in Miami , Bilello said.

Trump digs in as some Republicans grow tired of shutdown
The move is meant to call out Republican tactics to move forward on Trump's border wall between the United States and Mexico. But Shelby said he believes that will put equal pressure on Democrats as well as Republicans to come to a solution.

Netflix's 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch' sued for possible trademark infringement
This idea does make some sense, considering the more than 265 million copies of the books have been sold over the years. Additionally, the suit suggests that 20th Century Fox has optioned the rights to develop films based on these books.

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo.

"People are afraid of her", a senior Democratic aide told Politico, as some Democrats have withheld criticism of Ocasio-Cortez in fear that she'll go after them on Twitter. 'Honestly, if the Democrats had 3 more of her, Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age'.

Some lawmakers are trying to convince Ocasio-Cortez to use her influence to unite Democrats, while others have warned her that she's headed for a lonely tenure in Congress if she treats her more moderate colleagues as enemies, the report said.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) said.

"I think she looks mature and they look juvenile", Walsh said. She's pro-labor, pro-equality, supports taxing the ultra-rich to pay for vital government programs and infrastructure, and champions the working class and minorities.

In a comparison that Ocasio-Cortez would surely hate, politicos have pointed out that the NY rep. has "Trumpian" tendencies.
