We’ve said it before and we’ll probably say it again.
Democrats are in trouble.
And you know it would be sad if it wasn’t so convenient because traditionally when one party takes the White House the other party does really well in the midterms, and considering how unpopular Trump still is with some even on the right this should have been a cakewalk for them.
But then the Democratic Socialists showed up …
"The average age of a House Democrat right now is 65 years old… I don't think that they exactly see how rising income inequality has resulted in a very stark political reality." — @Ocasio2018

Y’all old timers GOTS TO GO. ‘A lot of these folks were in their heyday in the 90s … ‘
HA HA HA HA.
And you know what, we don’t actually disagree with Alexandria on this point, Democrats have well and truly turned into the party of rich, old, white people.
See Hillary Clinton.
She does know Bernie age right? I love when young people think they are the first generation of progressives ever in the whole wide world

Man, Bernie supporters are almost as cranky as he is.
Sure, alienate moderates and insult seniors. That's a great way to win every vote…

All I've heard from her is "Democrats are the enemy". I'm not a New Yorker, so it doesn't matter, but I've soured on her very quickly.

Hey Democrats, tell us more about that blue tidal wave.
Feinstein is more a progressive than Bernie or his puppies like Cortez will ever be.

I hope when she talks about removing old politicians she's talking about Bernie!

She might want to re-think some of these arguments. Some reek of ageism. She is a bright girl so I will give her the benefit of the doubt. But just because folks are old does not make them useless.

This is fun.
I like @Ocasio2018, but her attacks (there is no other word to use) on people older than millennials needs to stop. Is the idea to add age to the identity politics of Democrats? As far as Congress goes, the excessive time served in Congress may be the bigger problem.

Really wish we stopped doing the GOP's work and refrained from amplifying voices within our party that represent the very extremes of our ideological spectrum. It seems I can't turn anywhere without seeing Ocasio-Cortez somewhere. I don't share her views! Where are the moderates?
