Ocasio-Cortez generating more Twitter interactions than major media outlets

AOC office lottery Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Schools Joe Lieberman Over Remarks That She’s Too ‘Controversial’
Ellis Copeland | 14 January, 2019, 18:11

In the two months since her election, Ocasio-Cortez has had the uncanny ability for a first-term member of Congress to push the debate inside the Democratic Party sharply to the left, forcing party leaders and 2020 presidential candidates to grapple with issues that some might otherwise prefer to avoid.

What did Ocasio-Cortez say?

According to Politico, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) said, "I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people". 'Honestly, if the Democrats had 3 more of her, Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age'.

Ocasio-Cortez, who describes herself as a "democratic socialist" has become the face of a new younger and more "woke" demographic focused on fixing systemic problems in the country.

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". Rank and file are peeved that there's a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesn't deserve.

Moving on to politicians who are actually relevant today, that's not even the only great clapback AOC has delivered in the last 24 hours!

"She needs to decide: Does she want to be an effective legislator or just continue being a Twitter star?" said an anonymous House Democrat in the Politico report, who said he agrees with her radical ideology. "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress". "The honeymoon between the voters that you represent and yourself could be a short one".

I think she has matured.

According to the Daily News, her spokesman had "nothing to add".

"The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law".

From Dec. 11 to January 11 (when Ocasio-Cortez had been on the job just eight days), @AOC Twitter interactions (11.8 million ) - meaning retweets of her messages plus likes - were more than twice the 4.6 million interactions for Sen.

Ocasio-Cortez, a Bronx-born 29-year-old of Puerto Rican descent, is the youngest congresswoman ever, and Washington veterans say they can not recall a similar congressional debut.
