Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Shredded Joe Lieberman In Just Four Words

Former senator Joe Lieberman gave a quote to FOX Business on Thursday saying that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t the future of the Democratic party.

It did not go well for him.

Unsurprisingly, when America’s least-favorite former representative criticizes America’s new favorite representative the odds aren’t exactly even.

Ocasio-Cortez batted Lieberman aside like an annoying fly with four simple but devastating words that dismissed the former Senator completely.

She’s just so much better at this than they are.

Lieberman’s history of switching party allegiances, endorsing John McCain for President in 2008, and from dooming Obamacare’s crucial public option by opposing it as the tie-breaking vote hasn’t exactly endeared him to Democrats,

So the idea that Joe Lieberman knows what’s good for the party was seen by most as fairly absurd.

Ocasio-Cortez then burnished her nerd cred by following up her Lieberman smackdown with an ominous quote from Watchmen in which the character Rorschach says to his fellow inmates who are threatening him: “You don’t seem to understand…I’m not locked in here with you. You’re locked in here with me.”

The quote follows a particularly violent scene in which Rorschach has just kicked a would-be attacker’s ass, and could only be read as a thinly-veiled “watch out” from AOC to her many critics and online trolls.


Most responses simply boiled down to the spirit of AOC’s dismissive “Who dis?” in that people simply don’t think Joe Lieberman is relevant to anything anymore.

As one person pointed out, Lieberman’s disapproval is actually a badge of honor.
