Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is not letting up on Joe Biden.
In AOC’s first big interview, on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the leader of the new breed in the Democrat party hit Joe Biden pretty hard on his ongoing problems with inappropriate touching.
Reason for Concern
In the age of #MeToo, looking at someone the wrong way is reason enough to get them removed from office.
Biden, however, has and continues to have a real problem with how he interacts with women and young girls when making appearances. Nobody is accusing Biden of sexual assault, including AOC, but they are accusing him of being downright creepy.
AOC stated she does not believe Biden has effectively reached all women voters on this subject.
Biden, of course, did not help matters about two weeks ago when he draped his arms around a young girl during a campaign stop, right after having vowing not to do such things again.
Calling Out Bill Clinton
Since she was on the subject, AOC also took the opportunity to go after the biggest serial offender in the party, Bill Clinton.
Democrats did everything they could to cover up for Bill Clinton’s alleged rapes and sexual misconduct before and during his time in the Oval Office. They continued to shrug off the allegations against Bill Clinton during Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
There is little doubt that came into play somewhat and influenced some women voters to pull the handle for Trump.
AOC wants them all called out now, regardless of party, stating: “I wouldn’t look at this through a partisan lens. I think that this is part of an evolution that we’ve been having as a country.”
Her comments will no doubt reverberate through the party and possibly cause Joe Biden even more problems as he moves forward in this election cycle.
To this point, Biden has been unable to woo the freshman congresswoman to get behind him, something that could hurt him not so much in the primary, but rather in the general election if he actually gets the nomination.
