Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s epic clapback at Joe Lieberman has Twitter laughing out loud

Former Democratic vice presidential candidate and general curmudgeon Joe Lieberman is a former Senator best known for bucking his party by supporting conservative positions. So it’s no surprise the man who left the party to become an “independent” has thoughts on newly elected liberal Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez, who describes herself as a “democratic socialist” has become the face of a new younger and more “woke” demographic focused on fixing systemic problems in the country. She’s pro-labor, pro-equality, supports taxing the ultra-rich to pay for vital government programs and infrastructure, and champions the working class and minorities.

In other words, she’s Lieberman’s worst nightmare.

“With all respect, I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is,” Lieberman said during a spot on Fox Business News.

Ocasio-Cortez, the left’s version of Donald Trump when it comes to social media savvy, quickly shot back an epic burn on Twitter.

Lieberman, perennial grumpy old man that he is, probably won’t even catch the reference.

Twitter, with its younger-than-1000-years-old demographic, doubled over with laughter at Ocasio-Cortez’s clapback at the former Senator.
