Congressman calls progressive Latina candidate 'This girl…or whatever she is'

Congressman calls progressive Latina candidate 'This girl…or whatever she is'

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D., Mo.) on Tuesday dismissed the idea of the Democratic Party moving to the left and expressed his dissatisfaction with prominent left-wing politicians.

DeSantis went on to criticize her for her views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Lending some credibility to that argument, one Republican congressman, Ron Desantis, who is a candidate for governor of Florida - nowhere near New York's 14th Congressional District - referred dismissively to Ocasio-Cortez as "that girl, or whatever she is" at a campaign event at the weekend.

"She was asked to justify those views and she couldn't justify her views", DeSantis said.

GOP Congressman Calls Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 'This Girl ... Or Whatever She Is'

In response to the video, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: "Republicans are so scared of me that they're faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can't deal with reality anymore", demonstrating that she either doesn't recognize satire or is happy to mislead Facebook fans in order to capitalize on the publicity. "The unity on issues is very strong". "Good Lord...she has no clue what she's talking about". "It was nice to meet her", Gabbard said. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.).

A spokesman for Pocan said they discussed possible committee assignments, what she hoped to work on in Congress and how the progressive caucus could work with her.

In the mash-up, Ocasio-Cortez appears unable to answer basic questions about her socialist ideology and the direction socialism might take her country. "Socialist Ocasio-Cortez is a textbook example of someone who doesn't understand the basic principles of our Constitution". She has emerged as the face of a growing democratic socialist movement that emphasizes government-paid health care for all, a $15 minimum wage, free college tuition and the abolition of the federal department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also known as ICE. Bernie Sanders, was at the rally to support Kansas congressional candidate James Thompson.
