Presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) told ABC News that socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) would “no doubt” play a significant role in his administration if he is elected in 2020.
In fact, Sanders suggested he’d be willing to have her as a member of his Cabinet.
May we suggest secretary of Education — since there is no better evidence, in our view, of the failings of the American education system than AOC?
“If I am in the White House, she will play a very, very important role,” Sanders told ABC.
Sanders’ promise to Ocasio-Cortez echoes those he made during an interview with “CBS This Morning” three weeks ago.
In that interview, he told the New York Democrat that she definitely would be a part of his administration.
Sanders throughout the interview gushed like a smitten schoolboy over Ocasio-Cortez’s qualifications and the impact she’s had during her short tenure in Congress.
“At the end of one year, she is a leader in the United States Congress,” he raved.
“Her ideas are resonating all over this country.”
Nay — her ideas are a punchline all over this country, as we see it.
“I don’t know of any person — I’ve been in Congress for a few years — who in the course of less than one year, she’s been in office for less than one year, who’s had more of an impact in American politics as a freshman member of Congress than she has,” Sanders claimed.
AOC has no accomplishments to speak of, outside of dragging the Democrat Party into oblivion by lining up behind her extremist policies and platforms.

A Bernie-AOC union. It’s difficult to get an understanding of the benefit this political marriage between the curmudgeonly Sanders and the exuberant but bafflingly incompetent Ocasio-Cortez has for either party, in our view.
Granted, they’re both hardcore socialists bordering on full-fledged communists.
But Sanders’ poll numbers have remained stagnant, if not slipping outright, ever since members of the radical “squad” lent him their endorsement.

For a group of people constantly grousing about old white men in the Republican party, AOC and the squad sure picked a super old and super white man to stand behind.
A CBS reporter recently noted the contrast in messaging involved in the squad — who always plays the race card — locking arms with an “old white guy.”
“As a woman of color, why back an old white guy?” the reporter asked.
“And is this the future of the party?”
Socialism is the future of the party, of course — just not America.
President Donald Trump, during his last State of the Union address, vowed that America would never succumb to the travesty of socialism.
Bernie appeared to object to the idea.
President Donald Trump slams socialism: “America was founded on liberty and Independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free and we will stay free.”
“America will never be a socialist country.”
