When they were handing out speaking slots for their convention this week, Democrat leaders thought it would be a good idea to diss rising far-left progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by giving her just 60 SECONDS to speak.
I’m pretty sure they are now regretting that decision — BIGLY.
That’s because AOC (D-NY) used her one minute of time to SNUB presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden — and instead to nominate Bernie Sanders for president.
She did not even mention Biden — snubbing him completely.
Ocasio-Cortez began by stating, “Good evening, bienvenidos, and thank you to everyone here today endeavoring toward a better, more just future for our country and our world, in fidelity and gratitude to a mass people’s movement working to establish 21st-century social, economic and human rights, including guaranteed health care, higher education, living wages and labor rights for all people in the United States.”
“A movement striving to recognize and repair the wounds of racial injustice, colonization, misogyny and homophobia,” she continued. “And to propose and build reimagined systems of immigration and foreign policy that turn away from the violence and xenophobia of our past. A movement that realizes the unsustainable brutality of an economy that rewards explosive inequalities of wealth for the few, at the expense of long-term stability for the many. And who organized a historic, grass roots campaign to reclaim our democracy.”
“In a time when millions of people in the United States are looking for deep systemic solutions to our crisis of mass evictions, unemployment, and lack of health care, en el espíritu del pueblo, and out of a love for all people, I hereby second the nomination of Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont for president of the United States of America,” she concluded.
Here’s her full speech:
So what the DNC thought would be a throwaway mini-clip will turn out to be likely the most re-Tweeted video of the entire night.
What a dumpster fire.
Even AOC clearly seems to know what a loser Biden will be on November 3rd.
