Ocasio-Cortez: Social Media Are A Public Health Risk To Everybody

"Could you imagine if no one ends on the throne and they transition to democracy?" said Ocasio-Cortez in a Sunday interview with Yahoo News' "Skullduggery" podcast. 'I mean I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is'.

"But I think that we need to expand what those policy conversations are because I would-as just a citizen of this country-I would be very concerned if Trump started really pursuing more and more and more increasingly unsafe policies, and everyone just standing aside saying this is normal", she said.

"As wild as it can get some times", Ocasio-Cortez concluded to reporters, "this is something beyond normal".

She added that a potential Biden run "does not particularly animate me right now" and she has "a lot of issues" with that prospect. "And I said don't talk like the Founding Fathers on Twitter".

The New York congresswoman is a rising star in the Democratic Party and a frequent target for Republicans for her liberal views. A separate Pew Research survey found that 74 percent of USA adult Facebook users have done one of the following: changed their privacy settings, taken a break from the platform or deleted it. "As an American Jew, I can tell you there's nothing more hurtful to us than having us linked to money and saying that all we care about is money-that's the Holy Grail when it comes to insulting Jews". She raised only $6 million in the first quarter of 2019 after promising not to engage in expensive fundraising events.

Ocasio-Cortez shot to national prominence a year ago after unseating New York Rep. Joe Crowley, then a top Democrat in the House.


Asked for comment on Saturday, a Fox spokeswoman noted that Ocasio-Cortez, 29, has received plenty of media attention elsewhere, including prominent features in Time magazine, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and the Hollywood Reporter.

'I really don't know.

'I don't think any president of the United States should use the tragedy of 9/11 as a political tool, ' Pelosi said.

"There's just so many things", she said.

"They'll find somebody to challenge her in that district... somebody more moderate I think will take her lights out". But I don't have like a 10-year plan or a five-year plan or anything'.
