Ocasio-Cortez Says She Would Be “Honored” To Be Bernie Sanders’ VP


While campaigning with socialist presidential
candidate Bernie Sanders in Las Vegas, Nevada on Tuesday, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
said that it would be an “honor” to be Bernie Sanders Vice President pick if he were to
become the Democratic presidential nominee. “It’d be an honor to be vice president,”
Ocasio-Cortez said during an interview with Telemundo. The socialist later came back to reality when
she admitted that, “I can’t because I’m not old enough.” Check out what the Daily Wire reported: Ocasio-Cortez just turned 30 years old and
is five years short of the age threshold set by the Constitution to hold the office of
President. All nominees to the office as well as their running mates must be 35 years old
by election day to qualify to hold a spot on a presidential ticket. The Telemundo interview yielded a number of
strange quotes from Ocasio-Cortez, including her observation that President Donald Trump
is “afraid of strong women” — his White House staff roster, which features a number
of prominent female senior aides seems to speak differently on the subject. According to Ocasio-Cortez, she has been a
supporter of Sanders since 2016. “I was a community organizer in the Bronx for Sen.
Sanders during the last presidential campaign. That was my first experience, organizing right
there in the street for an election,” she stated in the interview with Telemundo. “Before that, I did community work in education,
with the Latino community and with the National Hispanic Institute, but that was my first
time organizing for an election. It was an experience that I will never forget,” she
continued. “It was an important part of my experience when I decided to run for Congress.
I learned that there was another way of doing politics here in the U.S.” The Daily Wire continues: The Sanders campaign activated Ocasio-Cortez
for the senator’s Nevada appearances, in the hopes that the Spanish-speaking New York
Rep can motivate the state’s fast-growing bloc of Latino voters to commit to voting
for the Democratic socialist in that state’s February cacuses (Sanders is currently running
behind former Vice President Joe Biden and is either tied with or just slightly ahead
of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)). Ocasio-Cortez did her townhall, and the subsequent Telemundo
interview, mostly in Spanish. Democrats and left-leaning political operatives
have mentioned “adjusting” the Constitutional requirements for the office of the President
before, in order to accommodate the slightly-too-young Ocasio-Cortez, but it’s unlikely such a
major change would occur before November of 2020, allowing the young House member to run
alongside Sanders.
