Waleed Shahid, former staffer for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared his old boss to a cross between Bernie Sanders and Cardi B, which is particularly funny as the singer/songwriter had an old video resurface this week where she bragged about drugging rich men and robbing them back when she was a stripper just trying to support herself:
AOC's former staffer, Walid Shaheed, says Democratic Socialism is now "not as fringe as you might think. In fact, what's becoming fringe is if you call yourself a capitalist openly." pic.twitter.com/03Z9gYqyIz

And consider us “fringe” members as well who are not afraid to defend capitalism:
Capitalism has been the greatest force for good in world history. It has created enormous opportunity, improved our standard of living immensely, reduced real poverty to a tiny percentage, and almost completely eliminated world hunger.

Fix it? They’re bragging about it:
You can't fix this level of stupidity and ignorance.
You simply can't. https://t.co/3TUL79wfDL

And have fun in 2020 with this message:
While this might play well with AOC's part of the Democratic base, this is not going to be a winning strategy for Democrats in 2020.
Continue to let AOC be the mouthpiece of the party at your own peril, Dems. https://t.co/aNBUQ5aSg5
