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

The failure to provide the coverage to campaign staff is particularly awkward for Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist who rose to stardom after unseating top Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley with a campaign theme of improving conditions for the working class.

Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman to serve in Congress, is considered a rising star in the Democratic Party and a champion of workers' rights. She's repeatedly stated her support for legalization and advocated to fix the harms caused by the War on Drugs.

In responding to the Politico article Friday morning, Ocasio-Cortez quoted a character from the comic book Watchmen to signal her intention to resist the influence of more experienced lawmakers.

Now, Democratic members of Congress are saying they're done with her "sniping" at their own party and aren't sure if her career in Congress will go too well if she keeps up the criticism. Older and wiser Democrats don't care how many Twitter followers she has or how much ink she's getting. And establishment Democrats are beginning to become annoyed with her. "Honestly, if the Democrats had three more of her [Ocasio-Cortez], Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age". "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress".

There is a stark contrast between Ocasio-Cortez's style and freshman congressman Dan Crenshaw's (R-Texas) as both of their names have been in the media several times.

Bayern could be taking a huge gamble by signing Callum-Hudson Odoi. " He is one of the best (young players) in Europe ". Bayern are continuing their public pursuit of the Blues youngster, who has indicated that he wants the move .


Lieberman may have served almost 25 years in the Senate - first as a Democrat, and later as an Independent - but he's certainly been lost to history at this point, and the political world is passing him by.

"The restaurant I used to work at is closing its doors", she wrote in a tweet.

"I think she looks mature and they look juvenile", Walsh said.

Recently Ocasio-Cortez told Politico that she wasn't interested in backing progressive candidates against incumbent Democrats, insisting that she's "focused on my job".
