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’
Last year Ocasio-Cortez was also mocked after she lamented the shuttering of a coffee shop in NY, which, it was revealed, closed its doors because of the wage hike in the state - a policy that she supports, causing 150 people to lose their jobs.
Responding to a news story about fellow Democrats who were hoping to rein her in, Ocasio-Cortez said, "To quote Alan Moore: 'None of you understand".
Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff hit back at the Democrats quoted in the Politico piece, comparing them to King George III during the American Revolution, and approvingly quote-tweeting a tweet comparing them to people who opposed civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s.
The effort, described by almost 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans.
Ocasio-Cortez's mention of "brown lady says a curse word" was likely a swipe at the media attention Rashida Tlaib, a Muslim congresswoman from MI, garnered when she called Trump a motherf****r shortly after being sworn into office. "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress".
In private conversations, Velázquez told Ocasio-Cortez not to target her Democratic colleagues and to think twice before backing primary candidates against elected Democrats.
"Washington is a political animal where a lot of the work that you want to accomplish depends on relationships within the Democratic Caucus", Velázquez said.
However, the team was not acceptable for one new member of the House of Representatives.
Additionally, Ocasio-Cortez accused: President Trump "he has a proven track record of discrimination against anybody who's really non-white in the United States" predating his 2016 election to the White House.
"She's new here, feeling her way around", Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore., said.
"Democrats are insane to be criticizing this woman".
"People are afraid of her", said one senior Democratic aide.
