Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez HILARIOUSLY Claps Back At Joe Lieberman’s Controversial ‘Future’ Co

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

"I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is", Lieberman told Fox Business Network when asked about Ocasio-Cortez's role in the Democratic Party.

How did Ocasio-Cortez respond? He retired in 2013 after serving 24 years in the U.S. Senate. On Thursday, Lieberman, an Independent, spoke with Fox Business about the future of the Democratic party and his thoughts on the rising political star, who was sworn in last week along with a fresh crop of House Representatives.

Last week, Lieberman told FOX Business that Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley in a major upset past year, is too "different" and "controversial" for the party.

"Who dis?" is a common response (mainly used by millennials) to a text message from an unknown number.

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".

Vocal critics of the approach say it's an expensive clone of socialized medicine systems found in Canada, Scandinavia and elsewhere.

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.

Lieberman added in the interview the Democrats will lose voters in the long term if Ocasio-Cortez's ideas are endorsed. You don't get picked for committees by who your grass-roots [supporters] are'. But their frustration goes beyond that: Democratic leaders are upset that she railed against their new set of House rules on Twitter the first week of the new Congress.

Veteran Democratic members suspected Ocasio-Cortez was behind a siable online campaign to convince Speaker Nancy Pelosi to give her the plum appointment.

Her new chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, told supporters during a November conference call that 'we gotta primary folks'.
