Former VP Joe Biden says Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a “brilliant, bright woman who won the primary. Um, she won the primary and then the general election for her district.
Biden told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he was skeptical of the Democratic Party moving further left. “By the way, I think Ocasio-Cortez is a brilliant, bright woman, but she won a primary. In the general election fights, who won? Mainstream Democrats.”
I do agree that the party is mostly center left. That is what I consider myself and I do not agree with many of the positions of the far left, pushing for programs that will be mostly paid for by the middle class. But we have to find a middle ground. It’s all hands on deck.to beat Donald Trump.
Well, Biden may have stepped in it again. Ocasio-Cortez responded to a tweet from Bernie Sanders slamming Biden’s comments:
Thank you, @SenSanders. It’s an honor to work alongside you and the millions of other people fighting for education, healthcare, and a living wage as rights.

More from Twitter:
1) AOC won a general election also. Biden hasn't successfully won a presidential primary despite multiple attempts
2) We see AOC leading charge against racist CBP, we see Biden defending segregation
3) Progressives almost won GA & FL. GOP vote suppression was major factor https://t.co/Yq67PLuEJm
