Elected representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made it clear on Saturday that she is not only willing to confront the Republicans who criticize her by responding to the comments of outgoing Senator Claire McCaskill, who essentially repeated many of the Republican points of discussion against the entrees. lawmaker. “I’m not sure why the first Senator McCaskill is still going on TV to call me ‘thing’ and ‘shiny object,’ but it’s pretty disappointing,” Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, wrote on Twitter. She continued to criticize the senator for two terms in Missouri that lost her seat in November when she was defeated by former state attorney general Josh Hawley, who received Trump’s endorsement.
“I do not know her,” McCaskill told CNN in an interview earlier this week when asked if he would consider Ocasio-Cortez a “crazy democrat” when referring to some of his party members in the campaign. “I’m a little confused why she’s the thing, but it’s a good example of what I’m talking about: a shiny new shiny object came out of nowhere and surprised people when it beat a very experienced congressman.” that although Ocasio-Cortez is “now he talked a lot”, at the end of the day, “I’m not sure what he’s done yet to generate that kind of enthusiasm”.
McCaskill was also more than a little condescending with the incoming legislator, wishing him well wishes but also offering advice. “I hope she also realizes that the parts of the country that reject the Democratic Party, like so many white working-class voters, need to know how their work and the dignity of their jobs will be respected, and how we can really get attached. to the problems where we can really achieve something, “he said. “Rhetoric is cheap. Getting results is much more difficult. ”
Ocasio-Cortez then continued his criticism of McCaskill in a subsequent tweet, questioning why he felt it necessary to speak publicly about how Republican senators criticize the president in private conversations. “I’m also not sure why McCaskill is covering the Republican Party saying that” secretly they think Trump is crazy, “he wrote.” Nobody cares. Trump is fusing our institutions and inciting division among people. At any time, GOP could have reviewed it and chosen not to. They are accomplices. “
