Ocasio-Cortez HUMILIATED Publicly By White House – New Details!
(TheRedWire.com) – A new movement sprung up when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came out of nowhere in 2018 to defeat then-Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), the third highest-ranking Democrat in Congress at the time. Since then, AOC has used her social media pulpit to rail on moderate Democrats while promoting far-left wing ideologies. At the same time, the far-left group known as the Squad rose up and expanded its influence in Congress, creating a massive headache for Democrats and President Joe Biden. Excepts from an upcoming new book revealed that a White House advisor slammed AOC and her radical accomplices.
Beginning in 2020, Democrats shifted dramatically to the left due to the influence of the Squad, even as some claimed a moderate label. With only six months to go until the 2022 mid-term election, some Democrats are expressing their dismay with the Squad. In a new book, releasing on Tuesday, May 3, several top Biden officials slammed AOC and her group of far-left co-enablers.
Biden Officials Slam AOC and the Squad
On Monday, April 25, Fox News released some excerpts from a new book titled “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.” Authors Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin noted that White House Office of Public Engagement director and senior adviser Cedric Richmond had strong feelings about the Squad’s damage to the Democratic Party among voters.
The book says that Richmond, a former Congressman before agreeing to serve in Biden’s White House, leveled a private mutiny against the Squad in a phone call with a personal friend. Richmond argued strongly that the Left misread the 2020 election results, didn’t have any political savviness or skills, and referred to AOC and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) as “f*****g idiots.”
Richmond wasn’t alone in the criticism. The book says that Counselor to the President Steve Ricchetti expressed strong feelings toward the Squad as well. He told an ally to President Biden on Capitol Hill that the Left doesn’t understand that they lost the battle inserting far-left ideas into the COVID stimulus bill in March 2021. The Squad argued that the government wasn’t giving citizens enough free money.
White House Refuses to Respond
The administration said the White House wouldn’t respond to specific claims in the book. A Biden official said there wouldn’t be a lack of books making numerous claims about the administration. The official added that they had no intention of confirming or denying anything written in the book.
The Squad was initially composed of Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), AOC, and Tlaib. Since 2018, it’s grown to approximately 30 of 435 elected members of Congress.
