Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez froze when asked about the future leadership of the Democratic Party this week; stuttering through a series of incoherent sentences when pressed on Pelosi’s political ambitions.
Cortez was speaking with CNN when she desperately tried to deflect questions on whether she’d back House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House should Democrats retake control of Congress this fall.
.@Ocasio2018 on Nancy Pelosi: "I think absolutely right now..she is the leader of..no no, um, she is speaker..or rather leader Pelosi..hopefully we’ll see..she’s ah..she’s the current leader of the party and..the party absolutely does have its leadership in the House and Senate" pic.twitter.com/6FUTWpgS98

CORTEZ CONFUSION: Socialist Star Says Trump Tried to ‘BAN ALL MUSLIMS’ From US
Liberal superstar and New York Democratic Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unloaded on the Trump administration this week, falsely claiming the White House was trying to “ban Muslims” from entering the United States.
Cortez slammed the President on social media Monday, saying his administration’s attempt to “ban Muslims” was based on their worldview “where the expansion of one’s rights must come at the cost of another’s.”
I highly doubt that Sessions and this administration, who fought to ban Muslims from this country, value “religious liberty” at all.
They believe in and prop up a false, zero-sum world where the expansion of one’s rights must come at the cost of another’s.

Cortez found herself in hot water in recent days after the left-wing candidate referred to Israeli settlers as the “occupiers of Palestine” and claimed closing tax “loopholes” would finance a universal healthcare system in the United States.
CLASS WARFARE: Ocasio-Cortez Says American Society Divided by ‘TOP VS DOWN’
Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez urged her fellow Democrats to “reframe” their message to American voters this week, saying candidates should no longer view issues as “left and right” but rather “top and down.”
Cortez made the surprising statement during a recent radio interview Monday, blasting West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin for “dropping $2 million” against a progressive challenger who still received 30% of the vote.
“That, to me, tells me that we need to start reframing our issues instead of left and right to top and down and it’s not about, like, oh, you know, ‘I have to whether my message to Republicans.’ There are people that really want to feel like there’s an unapologetic working class champion for them,” said Cortez.
