On the heels of tonight’s historic primary win by 28-year-old Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York’s safely-Democratic 14th congressional district, the president took the opportunity to not only make the race about him, but humiliate himself in the process.
Ocasio-Cortez’s win is significant in that she unseated 10-term incumbent Democrat Joe Crowley, representing a huge victory for her extremely progressive platform over a more centrist one held by Crowley.
Nonetheless, Trump decided that Crowley was voted out because “he should have been nicer, and more respectful, to his President!”

Wow! Big Trump Hater Congressman Joe Crowley, who many expected was going to take Nancy Pelosi’s place, just LOST his primary election. In other words, he’s out! That is a big one that nobody saw happening. Perhaps he should have been nicer, and more respectful, to his President!

It doesn’t seem like that’s the case. Her platform includes Medicare for All, a universal jobs guarantee, protection for DREAMers, a “clean campaign finance” system, and the abolishing of ICE, on which Trump has heavily relied to execute his inhumane agenda of separating families at the border. In fact, a platform more antithetical to Trump’s agenda couldn’t possibly exist.
While Trump’s narcissism may only be outdone by his ignorance, both are going to be quite cumbersome for his party as the Democratic “blue wave” continues to bear down upon the embattled – and complicit – GOP.
