Congressman calls progressive Latina candidate 'This girl…or whatever she is'

Wichita Kan. Ocasio Cortez along with U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders Vt.-I were at the rally to support Kansas congressional candida Congressman calls progressive Latina candidate 'This girl…or whatever she is'

While figures from both parties say her policies are too progressive and socialist, her supporters claim that she and others like her represent a real threat to the status quo and have simply rattled the establishment.

As they discussed how Ocasio-Cortez's views fit in with broader liberal thinking, McCain said she wants more Democratic Socialists running for political office...because she thinks they'll "lose spectacularly" to conservatives. She campaigned on such ideas as abolishing Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, a universal jobs guarantee, and forgiveness of all student debt.

The 29-year-old political newcomer, who was a volunteer for Senator Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign in 2016, hit back at Desantis on Twitter, clearing up the confusion about "whatever she is" by referencing her Puerto Rican heritage and noting that 75,000 Puerto Ricans had relocated to Florida since Hurricane Maria devastated the USA island territory.

"I mean, she's in a totally different universe". "She has no clue what she's talking about".

The producers of the video also made it easier for viewers to mistake it for a genuine news clip by digitally altering the original footage to replace the PBS "Firing Line" logo behind Ocasio-Cortez with the logo for Stuckey's show, "Allie".

"Rep DeSantis, it seems you're confused as to "whatever I am", Ocasio-Cortez wrote". It's unusual you don't know what that is, given that ~75,000 Puerto Ricans have relocated to Florida in the 10 mos since María. "But I'm sure these new FL voters appreciate your comments!".

"My problem is not with your identity but with your unhinged socialist views", he said in one message.

McCain ranted about the conditions in Venezuela, prompting Behar to reply Ocasio-Cortez is "talking more about Scandinavia than Venezuela".

"WASHINGTON ― Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) on Saturday referred to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democratic congressional nominee who is seen as a rising star in her party, as "this girl Ocasio-Cortez or whatever she is".

"Trust me", he added in a second tweet, "socialism wrapped in ignorance is something Floridians from all walks of life reject".
