Some House Dems upset with Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Democrats and Republicans alike have accused Ocasio-Cortez of hypocrisy.

Meanwhile, Politico ran an article today claiming "Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez", for which AOC had yet another ideal response, not just shutting down the sentiment but also solidifying her nerd cred for the foreseeable future. Ocasio-Cortez shared with her more than 2 million Twitter followers that she'd vote against a Democratic rules package. And establishment Democrats are beginning to become annoyed with her.

AOC is heading for a fall.

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).

"I don't know enough about her to be able to determine if she's going to be a good member or what", said Rep. She's pro-labor, pro-equality, supports taxing the ultra-rich to pay for vital government programs and infrastructure, and champions the working class and minorities.

Meet Sarah Thomas: The First Female Official in NFL Playoff History
According to NBC Sports , Thomas has been an NFL official since 2015 and is now in her fourth season in the league. National Football League official Sarah Thomas is set to make American Football history.

Incumbent Democrats are most annoyed by Ocasio-Cortez's threat to back primary opponents against members of their ranks she deems too moderate.

House Democrats were also annoyed that Ocasio-Cortez sought a seat on the powerful Ways and Means Committee - on which veteran lawmakers typically serve - with a grassroots campaign to pressure Speaker Nancy Pelosi to add her to the panel, Politico reported, adding that Ocasio-Cortez's office denied being behind the effort. 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.

Some House Democrats aren't convinced.

"It was an honor of a lifetime to meet with Rev. Jesse Jackson to discuss how we advance the movement for economic and racial justice in the United States", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

AOC knows that - hell, she represents that - and judging by Joe's inane comments to somebody as far right wing as Cavuto... we think Joe may have an idea that his time has always been up, too.
