AOC Gets Ripped by Local NYC Council Speaker

Throughout her brief political career, House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become rather skilled at finding the limelight, making attention perhaps the most valuable commodity in her legislative arsenal.

But this attention is not alway positive, and this week the precocious progressive got an earful from one of her own.

City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams told progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to stay in her lane on Thursday, after the Congress member weighed in on a Council budget dispute that has fractured the body’s progressive wing.

Adams was brutally honest about the situation.

“Some federal elected officials forget that a city is not managed through Twitter or social media,” Adams said at an unrelated press conference, not mentioning Ocasio-Cortez by name. “I’ve stepped back and decided not to engage in the back-and-forth mudslinging and frankly slander by some, who acted without factual information, showed no care to, and never bothered to even seek the truth. Today, I want to set the record straight, because facts still do matter, at least to me, even if they may not to others.”

This is perhaps just the beginning of the backlash against AOC, but given just how much we’ve heard from the young Democrat thus far in her career, there is already plenty of ammunition of her opponents.
