Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (a.k.a. – “Bronx Bolshevik”) warned her fellow leftists not to vote for billionaire Mike Bloomberg in November even if he became the Democratic Party’s nominee. Why? Because AOC claims that a Bloomberg presidency would be the catalyst for another candidate who’s “even worse” than President Trump.
Shockingly, it sounds as if Ocasio-Cortez — who endorsed socialist Bernie Sanders — prefers a second Trump term over a Bloomberg presidency.
“We obviously have to beat Trump,” AOC told NYC radio show The Breakfast Club. “But if we beat Trump and go back to the same policies that we had before, a worse Trump is going to come. A Trump that’s more sophisticated — whose fascism is less obvious — is going to come, and things could get even worse.”
Ocasio-Cortez trashed Bloomberg, who was the mayor of New York from 2002 to 2013. AOC contends that Bloomberg was racist for instituting a controversial stop-and-frisk policy.
“A lot of people don’t know Bloomberg. We’re here in New York City. We lived under his tenure as mayor,” AOC said. “We know exactly what he did. This is part of what he’s doing when he comes in, swoops in super-late in the game with billions of dollars at his disposal and is able to shower the airwaves with his cash.”
Bloomberg has since apologized for his stop-and-frisk policy, saying it was too aggressive. However, Ocasio-Cortez says Democrats should not give him a second chance because he doesn’t deserve it.
“I think that redemption in politics is an acceptable thing, but you have to earn it,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “It needs to be proven through years of work and evolution for the right thing.”
AOC insists that Bloomberg wasn’t sufficiently apologetic about the policy and had merely changed his position in a bid to pander to black voters.
AOC explained: “This is what happened with Bloomberg: He was down with stop-and-frisk. He fought for it in the courts. The courts overturned it as unconstitutional. He still fought it, defended it after being mayor and then five minutes before he runs for president, he says, ‘Maybe this wasn’t the right policy.’”
Ocasio-Cortez — whose claim to fame is that cauliflower is a racist vegetable — is at odds with the Democratic Party for refusing to pay her party dues.
AOC is also facing a primary challenge from fellow Hispanic, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera — a Reagan-loving, pro-capitalism, centrist Democrat.
