(PatriotHeadline.com) – Poor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It looks like New York’s craziest congresswoman won’t get to vote for fellow socialist Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential election. Joe Biden, former vice president under the Barack Obama administration, has taken the spot as the frontrunner and looks to be the next Democratic presidential candidate.
Ocasio-Cortez, known for her wild ideas and overly emotive style, is an ally of Sanders. Her proposed “Green New Deal” that would have ended air travel in the United States and crippled the economy in the name of preventing climate change, was even picked up by Sanders as part of his presidential campaign.
However, AOC will not see her dreams come true this year and has admitted she will be forced to support Biden in the next election.
During an interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers, AOC suggested she would support Biden if (or when) he wins the nomination.
Meyer was upfront with AOC about the likelihood of Biden winning the nomination. He described how most people are now saying the Democrats are down to two nominees and supporters need to start accepting the fact that they are going to have to rally behind a candidate they initially opposed.
Meyer’s comments are important because Biden supporters are staunchly opposed to Sanders’ radicalism, and Sanders’ supporters are equally opposed to Biden’s…well, his general lack of charisma and ideas.
Responding, AOC explained how she’s “said throughout this entire process that what is so important is that we ultimately unite behind whoever that Democratic nominee is.”
“I think it’s a two-way street. I’ve been concerned by some folks that say if Bernie’s the nominee, they won’t support him, and the other way around. Right now, November, this is more important than all of us and we really need to make sure we defeat Donald Trump at the polls. Assuming and knowing how insane it’s going to get between now and then.”
AOC might well be admitting she will have to support Biden, but her talk of this being a “two-way street” could imply she hopes Biden supporters will stop attacking Sanders so much.
As if that’s going to happen.
