Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Schools Joe Lieberman Over Remarks That She’s Too ‘Controversial’

AOC office lottery

Lieberman appeared on Fox Business last Thursday and told host Neil Cavuto, "With all respect, I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is". He retired in 2013 after serving 24 years in the U.S. Senate.

Last week, Lieberman told FOX Business that Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley in a major upset previous year, is too "different" and "controversial" for the party. "But if you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House, they tend to be, I say, center-left, if they are not left-left". Millennials often use such a response to avoid unwanted conversations through text messages by pretending they have no idea who is trying to them.

At 29, she is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic socialist, has sought to establish herself as an advocate for working class Americans and has pushed for Medicare-for-all and a federal jobs guarantee program, among other progressive proposals. Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package.

"It was an honor of a lifetime to meet with Rev. Jesse Jackson to discuss how we advance the movement for economic and racial justice in the United States", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Duchess Meghan’s Bodyguard Quits After Just 6 Months
The Met could not confirm the bodyguard had quit because they said they do not comment on anyone involved in the bodyguard role. Meghan's personal assistant Melissa Touabti also announced in December after a similarly short period of time, just six months.

When she made a play this month for a seat on the powerful Ways and Means Committee, a senior Democrat told Politico that '[i] t totally pissed off everyone.

Incumbent Democrats are most annoyed by Ocasio-Cortez's threat to back primary opponents against members of their ranks she deems too moderate.

Veteran Democratic members suspected Ocasio-Cortez was behind a siable online campaign to convince Speaker Nancy Pelosi to give her the plum appointment. One of them, her new chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti, told supporters during a November conference call that "we gotta primary folks".
