Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Schools Joe Lieberman Over Remarks That She’s Too ‘Controversial’

Report: Ocasio-Cortez still mum on taking paycheck despite 13 in Congress refusing during shutdown

"I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is", the 76-year-old Lieberman, a moderate Democrat, said.

In responding to the Politico article Friday morning, Ocasio-Cortez quoted a character from the comic book Watchmen to signal her intention to resist the influence of more experienced lawmakers.

Lieberman, 76, represented CT in the US Senate from 1989 to 2013. On Thursday, Lieberman, an Independent, spoke with Fox Business about the future of the Democratic party and his thoughts on the rising political star, who was sworn in last week along with a fresh crop of House Representatives. "But if you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House, they tend to be, I say, center-left, if they are not left-left".

Possibly the "crying while laughing" emoji Ocasio-Cortez included in her tweet was a signal to all that her response should be taken in good fun.

The two announced they were separating but had made a decision to continue their "shared lives as friends". In a statement , the couple said: "We want to make people aware of a development in our lives".

Ocasio-Cortez also advocates for an ambitious "Green New Deal" that calls for a transition to a 100 percent renewable energy system and the complete replacement of America's power grid as a means of generating jobs and saving the natural environment.

"A bartender from the Bronx has been able to create a litmus test around climate and economic policy for every 2020 Democrat", said Waleed Shahid, who was one of Ocasio-Cortez's early campaign advisers and is now communications director for Justice Democrats, a liberal activist group.

Vocal critics of the approach say it's an expensive clone of socialized medicine systems found in Canada, Scandinavia and elsewhere. The stunt backfired as the dance went viral and Ocasio-Cortez dancing her way into her Congressional office in a short video for Twitter.

Just kidding, she'll keep on plugging away on the exact social and environmental reforms she has been, which will ultimately do more to save us than Joe Lieberman ever did.
