Axios: ‘Democrats Buzz About AOC Primarying Chuck Schumer…In 2022’

Fox Business / YouTube GOP should make socialist Ocasio Cortez...

Chuck Schumer has come under fire in recent years for not being progressive enough. There may be merit to that argument. However, there is greater merit to the argument that he’s an old war horse who has been around for quite some time, and before we set him out to pasture, or talk about doing so, it would behoove us to all focus on the only thing that matters to Democrats or this country: Getting rid of Donald Trump. That said, here’s what AOC has in mind, ostensibly. Axios:

Top Democrats tell “Axios on HBO” they expect Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may eventually primary one of the two New York senators — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in 2022, or Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in 2024.

Why it matters: AOC has instantly become one of the party’s most coveted endorsers (up there with Clintons and Obamas) — and has recently made common cause with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a pairing that could take off. AHarris poll for “Axios on HBO” shows socialism is soaring in popularity, especially with women ages 18 to 54 (55%) and younger Americans.

We don’t live in normal times. My objection is not to AOC having bigger dreams. My objection is solely to giving Trump any ammunition the next time he decides to take a shot at Chuck Schumer. For now until the 2020 election, the only thing any Democrat should be thinking about is unity and defeating Trump — or we’re not going to have a country left, and party politics and purity considerations will be rendered moot.

That is correct as the only issue that matters is removal of trumper-without him GONE none of the other issues can be handled…he is the sole problem facing this country along with his ignorant base; but then again look at the ones that supported Hitler and elevated Hitler to power….how is this different? And the religious fanatics who give parenting rights to rapists in Alabama in the name of their god….not my president and not my God
