Ocasio-Cortez: We’re Going to ‘Run Train on the Progressive Agenda’

Share

Progressive congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has joined the House Financial Services Committee to help regulate Wall Street.

Wall Street had better brace itself, because the House Financial Services Committee is about to be loaded with some big names from the left wing of the Democratic Party.

The panel will be chaired by Maxine Waters (Calif.), who is on the moderate wing of the Democrats.

The Free Beacon noted that while Ocasio-Cortez most likely meant "she and her fellow liberal Democrats would enthusiastically pursue their agenda items, "run train" is known as a crude sexual term, which is sometimes used to denote acting in an aggressive manner".

Luckily, Ocasio-Cortez sprang into action, schooling the recently ousted governor that his analogy was completely wrong and proving that her Twitter game remains supreme. It oversees big banks, lending, and the financial sector.

The rapper, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, has denied sexual assault allegations against him. Kelly rose from poverty on Chicago's South Side to become a star singer, songwriter and producer.

On Monday, Donald Trump dismissed pot-shots fired by Ms Ocasio-Cortez, after she called the president "racist".

"I'd say we'd be taxing 70% of Trump's income, but he probably hasn't made more than $10 million in years", she wrote, "and that's the real reason he's hiding his taxes".

"Everybody knows someone in their life that is already an unbelievable public servant", Ocasio-Cortez said in a nine-minute video released Wednesday by Justice Democrats.

The 29-year-old Democratic socialist claimed on Twitter that she understood Trump "like the back of my hand", comparing him to men she encountered bartending in NY.

"Nominate that unbelievable public servant to take their service to the halls of Congress. Give them that nudge", she said, adding "my brother did it for me". "I understand guys like this like the back of my hand". We got under his skin'.
