Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) of NYC is making the media rounds telling everyone how the big mean white males (like Nancy Pelosi and James Clyburn) are forsaking her elderly socialist comrade Bernie Sanders for the slightly less elderly Joe Biden.
She made the pitch on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Thursday night, confident the viewers of such twaddle could translate kiddie Bolshevik into English: “I think it’s a two-way street,” AOC said to Meyers. “I’ve been concerned by some folks that say if Bernie’s the nominee, they won’t support him—and the other way around.”
Yeah, lass, “some folks” do not want to commit political suicide.
Oh, and she had this to say about Liz Warren: “She’s a champion and I think that she ran an absolutely stunning, incredible race.”
Yup, such a champion, such a stunner, such an unalloyed winner that she punted several months before the convention, hardly got out of single digits in the polls, and showed a generation of young women how not to drink a beer. What an icon…yawn.
But AOC saved the best for last and helpfully predicted the landslide of President Trump’s re-election campaign, given these are voters she is relying on: “It is going to be now and in November, I believe, turnout of young people that will have a huge determination in our future as a country. And this is an enormous responsibility. And we’ve got to really, really turn up or else—you get what you fight for. And you get what you vote for. And I think it’s so incredibly important that we fight for a future that will work for us,” she said to Meyers.
After that diatribe the cracking sound that could be heard from New York City was AOC’s high school English teacher shooting herself.
So the cadet commie from the Bronx, who is putting her bet on the non-existent youth vote, wants them to vote for a man who is old enough to be their grandfather and is the loyal acolyte of a failed and bloodstained 19th century political and economic philosophy.
Well, one thing you can say for AOC, when it comes to sheer non-intentional amusement, the young lady never, but never, disappoints.
