"You know, the president is from Queens", Ocasio-Cortez, 28, said. In the hopes of keeping it, her mother cleaned houses and drove buses and, and Ocasio-Cortez-flush with a background in public policy and that economics degree from BU-took a job waitressing and bartending at a Mexican restaurant in Manhattan.
Cardillo has since tweeted more than a few times about Ocasio-Cortez, saying he believes that she'll fail in Congress and that, despite his incorrect mention of where she went to school, he still believes she's "not a 'girl from the Bronx.'".
Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., added to the conversation on Sunday by suggesting that what worked in the Bronx for Ocasio-Cortez may not work nationwide.
This is 100% true and I also have 600 unread text messages on my phone.
"I have three kids. two of them are daughters". It'll take a minute.
"Democrats are a big tent party", she said.
But Ocasio-Cortez shot back.
Progressives nationwide are applauding the wave of left-wing victories in a number of Democratic primary races-and warning that centrist Democrats who dismiss the growing nationwide enthusiasm for candidates who refuse corporate money and support bold proposals like Medicare for All and tuition-free higher education, do so at at their own peril. So, yeah, she's from the Bronx, unless anyone who's ever moved anywhere is no longer from anywhere. "Carper", she said. "He was jogging". "Calls herself a democratic socialist, actually, like Bernie Sanders did, she was a Bernie Sanders reporter", Press said.
John Cardillo, host of Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live", tweeted an image of Ocasio-Cortez's childhood home in Yorktown Heights with the claim that she lived in that home before attending Brown University. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters last week that the surprising election result doesn't have broad implications for the party.
"I didn't go to Brown or the Ivy League".
Cardillo, Deace, and the others attacking Ocasio-Cortez keep talking about how glad they are that an open socialist is running for office so they can debate socialism honestly. However, he said he stood by his remark that she is not a "girl from the Bronx".
