Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared on CNN Monday alongside Don Lemon to react to Senate Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (D-CA) picks for the Jan. 6th comission. Her reaction was to call McCarthy “chauffeur of the clown car.”
“I think Kevin McCarthy has decided that his role as a minority leader in the House of Representative is to essentially be chauffeur of the clown car,” she said. “He believes that his job is to champion some of the most ludicrous, irresponsible and dangerous members of his party instead of centering some of the more even-keeled and responsible members of his party. And that’s what he’s decided his leadership is and what it means to this country.”
But AOC says it won’t deter the Democratic Party. “I think it’s shameful, but it will not stop Democrats,” she said. “It will not stop people who are actually interested in setting this country on the right track and trying to do their best to do so.”
