Biden Throws Shade at AOC: ‘Mainstream Democrats’ Won Last Year’s Midterms, Not Far Left
Former Vice President Joe Biden tossed some shade at progressive superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during a CNN interview that aired on Friday morning, suggesting she’s not representative of the Democratic Party as a whole while claiming liberal policy proposals can’t win in swing states.
“By the way, I think Ocasio-Cortez is a brilliant, bright woman,” he said. “But she won a primary. In the general election fights, who won? Mainstream Democrats who were very progressive on social issues, and very strong on education, health care.”
