Joe Lieberman, former Democratic Senator from CT, made it clear he is not a fan of New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

AOC knows that - hell, she represents that - and judging by Joe's inane comments to somebody as far right wing as Cavuto... we think Joe may have an idea that his time has always been up, too. "Congress of ALL places should raise MRAs so we can pay staff an actual DC living wage".
