There’s increasing anxiety among Democrats and the Trump-hating press that newbie Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her war on farting cows is hijacking attention away from the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential candidates.
Media Lament: No One’s Talking About Other Dems
ABC News reporter Tom Llamas expressed his concern to ABC News host George Stephanopoulos, the former White House communications director for Bill Clinton.
“George, it reminds me of 2016. You have all these candidates. The question is, who has that baked-in 20% [base]? Is that Biden? Is it Bernie Sanders, like President Trump did when he ran?
Remember, [Trump] started at 20% and then started to build from there because there were so many candidates fracturing the party.
The other big problem Democrats have right now is that the most talked-about Democrat in this country is not running: AOC. What does that say about the party? Is that where the party’s at right now?”
Greenpeace Founder: AOC Is a ‘Pompous Twit’
Self-declared socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has received outsized media attention despite being in Congress for only a month. It’s because AOC is young, cute, and knows how to work social media.
That — coupled with Ocasio-Cortez’s inane policy ideas — makes her a rich target for widespread mockery and criticism.
As a result of her laughable Green New Deal, Ocasio-Cortez has stirred bipartisan backlash. Even the co-founder of Greenpeace slammed AOC as a “pompous little twit.”

The thin-skinned Ocasio-Cortez continues to fuel the snark by repeatedly whining about negative media coverage.
When President Trump does it, he’s “attacking the free press.” But when AOC does it, she’s standing up for herself.
Why is @AOC attacking the Free Press?
Next she’ll call them the Enemy of the People. https://t.co/VrXztqMOfy

Conservatives: AOC Is the Gift That Keeps On Giving
Meanwhile, conservatives LOVE having the media spotlight on Ocasio-Cortez because she discredits the entire Democrat Party with each unhinged tweet and emotional outburst.

Over the weekend, AOC was enraged that the New York Post did a story exposing her environmental hypocrisy.
While Ocasio-Cortez tried to frame the exposé as a “right-wing” smear, she neglected to mention that the left-wing New York Daily News also slammed her.
The Daily News called AOC a bully for putting moderate Democrats on a hit list if they don’t go along with her move to push the party to the far-left.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was slammed by both liberal and conservative media outlets in New York.
AOC Still Reeling After Amazon Disaster
As BizPac Review reported, Ocasio-Cortez is still upset over the bipartisan uproar she stirred when she chased Amazon out of New York.
“This episode illustrates just how out of touch AOC and other lawmakers on the far left are with the needs of ordinary Americans, who want jobs and opportunity.
Government doesn’t produce, but only can spend the money created by others. Capitalism creates and socialism takes.
The people hurt most by this socialist agenda are ordinary Americans who lose out on job opportunities needed to better their lives.
OC’s policies threaten the booming economy, driven by Republican tax cuts and deregulations, that’s providing the most opportunity in a generation.”
