Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez waded into the 2024 presidential election.
Ocasio-Cortez’s announcement was not what many of her allies on the left were hoping to hear.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez left Democrats fuming with this 2024 presidential decision.
Ocasio-Cortez officially endorsed Joe Biden for president during an appearance on Pod Save America.
The New York congresswoman claimed Biden earned her support by signing the trillions of dollars in socialist spending for the Green New Deal.
“I believe, given that field, yes. I think he’s done quite well, given the limitations that we have. I do think that there are ebbs and flows as there are in any president, in any presidency. You know, I there are areas that I think were quite strong when he came right out of the gate with the American Rescue Plan. And, of course, the Inflation Reduction Act was a massive step in terms of our climate agenda,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
Ocasio-Cortez then declared that Democrats need to pick up seats in the Senate in 2024 so Chuck Schumer can nuke the filibuster and Joe Biden can turn America into a one-party state through packing the Supreme Court, adding Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico as the 51st and 52nd states, and granting amnesty as well as voting rights to tens of millions of illegal aliens.
“But there are also areas that I think could have gone better. We have major structural issues in this country and start, I think it starts with the United States Senate. And I think that until we have senators that are willing to stand up and stare the filibuster in the eye, there are a lot of structural issues about the Senate. The United States Senate will be what holds back this country from an enormous amount of progress,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
It’s not usually controversial for elected officials to endorse a sitting president from their own party.
In fact, it’s actually what is demanded of members of Congress as anyone not backing their party’s president usually catches a primary challenger.
But normal presidents are not 80 years old and descending into senility before the public’s very eyes like Joe Biden.
Joe Biden’s approval rating sits at just 42 percent and polling from Echelon Insights shows him trailing Donald Trump in the key swing states 48 to 41 percent.
Biden’s plight ties back to his age which is why a recent NBC poll showed 70 percent of Americans – including 51 percent of Democrats – do not want Biden to run for re-election.
Bernie Sanders’ senior aide Briahna Joy Gray blasted Ocasio-Cortez for giving Biden political cover to remain in the race and risk losing to Trump.
“Endorsing Joe Biden now is a betrayal of progressive interests. It was true of Bernie Sanders’ endorsement & its true of AOC,” Gray ranted.
“*Most* Democrats don’t want Biden to run. Bernie and AOC are tragically out of step w/ the movement & the moment,” Gray added.
The media published a spate of stories in recent weeks about California Governor Gavin Newsom.
A-list media members like liberal New York Times columnist Maureen Down called Biden appalling for refusing to acknowledge the existence of his four-year-old granddaughter Navy Joan Roberts because Roberts is Hunter Biden’s child from an affair.
And even Biden’s cheering section on MSNBC is warning that Biden’s age is an issue and his staff needs to step up and stop Biden from ending up in embarrassing predicaments.

Democrats know running Joe Biden is a roll of the dice and that he could very well lose to Donald Trump.
And that’s why liberals are furious at Ocasio-Cortez for endorsing Biden and easing the pressure on Biden to drop out of the race.
