How did Ocasio-Cortez respond?

Strikingly, the scene from the comic book series from which the quote is taken occurs in a prison cafeteria-a potentially provocative, though perhaps fluid, metaphor for what Congress has become to many lawmakers.

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman, (I-CT.), on calls from some Democrats for a tax hike and the 2020 presidential race.

Joe Lieberman doubled down on his suggestion that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the future of the Democratic Party.

Since her election, Ocasio-Cortez has made a number of controversial statements which have provoked strong responses, including accusing the former White House Chief of Staff and retired Marine Corps General John F. Kelly of "cowardice". Back home in NY, she has stoked opposition to a deal with Amazon to set up offices in Queens, putting pressure on Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, both Democrats, to justify corporate incentives.

"This is a disgrace", she wrote on Twitter. I'm not locked up in here with YOU.

This is not the first time the democratic socialist congresswoman's values has come under question.

Ocasio-Cortez was denied a seat on the influential Ways and Means committee this week despite a public pressure campaign launched by progressive advocacy groups. The 29-year-old's zealous confrontations with more senior lawmakers, which she appears to have dialed back in recent weeks, have drawn the consternation of those concerned about the potential for her to splinter the party.

A message left with her Washington office wasn't returned.

By Friday morning, Lieberman began trending on Twitter as others felt similarly.

One day, all of these rightwing pundits and centrist politicians are going to look up and shout, "save us", and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will look down and whisper "no".

Lieberman pointed to the many moderate Democrats who beat Republicans in purple districts in 2018.
