In an article in The Hill on Tuesday, Democrat consultant Michael Starr Hopkins argued in all seriousness that radical “Squad” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is the Party’s best hope of defeating former President Trump in 2024.
Hopkins wrote that AOC, “the future of the Democratic Party,” is populist and thus “less of a personality and more of a movement,” and “a force to be reckoned with” against Trump, should he run in 2024. “She has been unafraid, unapologetic and unwilling to bend to the will of Washington,” the op-ed read.
“In the age of social media and quick sound bites, no Democrat is more prepared to embarrass a bully like Donald Trump,” Hopkins explained. “The simplicity with which she talks about everyday struggles hints that she’s not just a persona for consumption. She isn’t beholden to corporations, is a prodigious small-dollar fundraiser, and could out-Trump Trump like no other politician has been able to,” he continued.
Asked about a potential run in 2024 on The Late Show with left-wing propagandist Stephen Colbert, AOC did not rule out the possibility.
Yes, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, please run against Trump.
