Is AOC is the new leader of the Democratic Party?
In a shocking turn of events, Former President Barack Obama encouraged Democrats to welcome people like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez into their party with open arms.
According to the Washington Examiner, Obama said in an interview, “One thing I will say about the Democratic Party, promoting young people is really important. We stick so long with the same old folks and don’t make room for new voices.”
Obama then said, “The fact that AOC only got, what? Three minutes or five minutes? When she speaks to a broad section of young people who are interested in what she has to say, even if they don’t agree with everything she says. New blood is always good. And I say that as somebody who used to be the young, shiny cool guy. But now is the gray-haired old grizzled vet.”
