No one thought they would ever see this day.
The Democrat Party is being torn apart.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on Fox News. She exposed the Democrats’ big scandal.
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made her first appearance on Fox News appearing on “Special Report” with host Bret Baier.
Baier began the interview by asking Ocasio-Cortez about the future of Bernie Sanders’ Presidential campaign by wondering if Sanders was merely acting as a “spoiler.”
Ocasio-Cortez disputed that notion and said it was important for Sanders to continue to talk about his issues like a complete government takeover of healthcare.
“One of the things that we saw with Bernie Sanders’ leadership, even today, is how transformative it is for the American people. Just today, he laid out a very strong plan in response to the coronavirus for everyday people, for Main Street, not just Wall Street.” Ocasio-Cortez added, “He’s talking about how do we make sure that everyone who needs access to Medicare can get it? … How do we make sure people aren’t getting booted out of their homes whether it’s not being able to afford the mortgage payment this month or not being able to afford their rent payment?”
But Ocasio-Cortez then took the interview in a shocking turn by claiming Sanders lost the crucial battleground of Michigan because of voter suppression.
“I think one thing that isn’t being talked about is the rampant voter suppression in this country. Right there in Ann Arbor where we had that rally, those kids were waiting three hours in line to vote in Michigan. When we talk about who’s turning out and who’s not turning out,” Ocasio-Cortez revealed.
Baier pressed Ocasio-Cortez on this claim and Ocasio-Cortez proceeded to double down.
“Absolutely. There’s more that we need to do in terms of turning out youth voters. We need to make sure we are inspiring young people to turn out, but when you do turn out, you should not be waiting three, four, seven hours in order to vote.”
Michigan has a Democrat Governor.
And this was a Democrat Presidential primary.
Democrats usually play the “voter suppression” card against Republicans.
Liberals like Ocasio-Cortez claim any law that requires voters to prove who they say they are before casting a ballot – is “racist.”
But in the case of the Michigan primary, Ocasio-Cortez is training these guns on her own side.
Ocasio-Cortez appearing on Fox News to level these charges will make the upcoming efforts by Joe Biden to stitch the Democrat Party back together all the more difficult.
Bernie Sanders is leading an ideological movement.
A percentage of his supporters refused to back Hillary Clinton in 2016 and that helped Donald Trump win.
In that election, Democrats worked behind the scenes to rig the election against Sanders.
In 2020, Ocasio-Cortez is accusing the establishment of stacking the deck against Sanders once again.
Will this divide be too great to heal?
The answer could determine the winner of the 2020 election.
