Ocasio-Cortez Gets Torched by Fellow Democratic Women in the House

Our favorite socialist superstar just got torched by fellow Democratic women who declared that she does NOT represent them, nor is she an example of someone who can help Democrats retain the House in 2020.
Five freshman Democratic women House members joined together to let the country know that AOC is not reflective of those who ran and won in tough and highly competitive districts, including four won by President Trump.
Roll Call has the story:
At an event to tout their formation of a joint fundraising committee to tap each other’s donors (and hopefully bring in more), the five, all with military or intelligence backgrounds, never mentioned New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by name.
But the message from Reps. Elaine Luria and Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey and Chrissy Houlahan of Pennsylvania was clear: Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t represent them, and she’s not the one who’s going to help Democrats maintain their majority.
“There’s been an overwhelming focus on a small number of members in our caucus who did not flip seats, who did not help win the House, who are doing what is right for their districts, but who don’t represent our districts, or at least my district,” Slotkin said at a Friday breakfast with a small group of reporters.
All five flipped seats previously held by Republicans last fall, helping Democrats retake the House. Now they’re banding together to help each other fundraise to hold on to those seats in 2020.
Now THAT is funny, and sure to cause some to have a very bad day.
While Ocasio-Cortez defeated her primary opponent, Rep. Joe Crowley, in 2018 she ran in a safe district for Democrats.
Nancy Pelosi famously said “a glass of water” with a D by it’s name could have won in AOC’s district.
We know that Ocasio-Cortez will not be able to refrain from speaking out about this latest jab at her.
Can’t wait to hear what stupid thing she’ll have to say!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the gift that keeps on giving, to the Republican party.
