  1. The extreme leftists are now being given a spotlight…. want to make the US like the country they immigrated from… nice. I’m mexican american and I like the US to fight these commies not to embrace them.

    • Luis Magana

      She came from New York. She’s American. Her parents are Puerto Rican’s. They’re American.

    • +Luis Magana Maybe but first gen usually have more allegiances to their parents country….you sound first gen.

    • Michael Minjares

      As a Mexican-American myself, you truly are a disappointment stuck in the Cold War mentality.

    • Luis Magana

      zkppy my parents are American.

    • Ian Baker

      The only reason the us fought communist regimes was because Russia was public enemy number one and was self declared communist. We made it about democracy vs communism to hide the fact it was superpower against superpower in a imperialist battle to control the world.

  2. ARBAZ QURESHI

    Socialism dosen’t works.Its a failed concept.Look what socialism has done to Venezuela.

    • Mark Gray

      ARBAZ QURESHI You look what The Osama did To America with socialism? The Qsama almost turned us into a Socialist Communist deep State criminal Democrat dictator country! Thank God they voted him out; And voted in a not politician neither Republican or Democrat! that ran on a Republican ticket otherwise he wouldn’t have gotten in!

    • Mike Scott

      To anyone wondering if ‘socialism’ has ever worked, it works just fine RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW for DECADES!…Guaranteed public education, Public transportation, Fire departments, Police departments, Public libraries, Every branch of the US military, Roads & highways, Social Security, Medicare/medicaid, Public, not private prisons & jails, Public hospitals, The Veterans Affairs Administration, Public universities, Public parks, Public toilets, Public drinking fountains, Public parking, Public everything…thats what ‘Democratic Socialism’ is…save the boogeyman buzz words for other nitwits

    • Fernando Arista

    • Lester Walker

    • Lester Walker

      +silky johnson silky Johnson I d id not want to reply until I had a great answer and when I came up with one I put it on my to do list.
      Here is a very good answer: Please on YouTube search DL Hughley videos. Type in “DL Hughley Donald Trump” check out a lot of them and then we will talk. Have a great one(as knuckle head Tony Robbins ) would say “Love Yah!”

    • silky johnson

      +Lester Walker DL Hughley is a race baiting idiot, Interviews on CNN and MSNBC are not changing the fact Trump has done NOTHING racist, If you believe CNN and MSNBC you are just an misguided sheep they love.

  13. J.B.SMITH GOLDHUNTER

    I havent seen an Iota of comprising from the Democrat party. On any issue at all. Whats she talking about?

    • Benjamin Fields

      American horror GOREY any proof on that? As for housing: depends on who. Housing should at least have price caps and shouldn’t be determined by somebody who understands the struggles that the working and middle class go through because of the capitalist system. Say… $500,000 max for a house and $1000/month max for apartments in the super wealthy neighborhoods. Much less in other neighborhoods. Or… if housing were to be “free” make the 1% pay for the houses.

    • American horror GOREY

      +Benjamin Fields well who would own the houses with capped value? That would be like u selling your car and somebody saying nope $5000 is the max u can sell your car. But what if u had a Cadillac? that would b a bit unfair.

    • charlie cleveland

      You dont compromise with a racist who wants a wall to keep people out ,especially when thats all he hires

    • jxsilicon9

      You must be blind.

    • Thanks A Million

      Joelunchbox they did not prolong it

  14. Wilson Wu

    Compromise! What compromise? Impeach Trump and fund Planned Parenthood? Much compromise.

    • Miguel Spagna

      +Iron wall Other than those tax breaks every single thing you mentioned was caused by Obama

    • Miguel Spagna

      +Iron wall “no minimum wage increase” We don’t want one. Look at San Francisco, they increased their minimum wage to 15 an hour and their economy collapsed within 2 weeks

  15. BR0DUDEMAN

    If her head was filled with anymore hot air she’d float away.

  16. david forte

    I’d be embarrassed to be Democrat and have this as my leadership

    • Donut Frump

      Good thing you’re not a Democrat. How’s Trump working out for you? So much winning!

    • Mark Gray

      Donut Frump That’s great as long as Donald Trump keeps winning! The no good Socialist Communist deep State criminal Democrat dictators don’t like that! So f**k them right up to the shoot!

  17. IIIUMlNATI

    gives off a very psychopath ex-girlfriend vibe…

    • Mark Gray

      Rick Barnadas Hey Stoopid socialist! There are Socialist Communist Americans idiot not Socialist Communist Chinese or Cuba or Russia! They are Socialist Communist American Democrat criminals idiot! Cortez is a modern socialist! She admitted a lot of times! But is she is American moderate Socialist Communist!

    • Byron Padilla

      Mark Gray you’re delusional, show your face! Cortez is our future 🙂

    • Byron Padilla

      Bill Holstein in my opinion it does, but it definitely doesn’t make her a psychopath!

    • Thomas Casavana

      Yea for sure plus her teeth are nasty

  18. Frank Umlaut

    Yawn, another dreamy eyed socialist who went from barkeep to overpaid politician who will save us from ourselves because she is just that brilliant (with other peoples money too!).

    • Donut Frump

      Trump made it to President (with other people’s money), you scared now bud?

    • Hugo Stiglitz

      Yawn, another useful idiot for super rich multinational corporations who have their own “welfare” in the form of huge unfair tax cuts and bailouts. Socialism helped make northern Europe some of the happiest nations on earth by following policies similar to what Cortez wants. Much better than neoliberal Hillary.

  19. Gangster Caesar

    The democrats are the true threat to the American people

    • Rafael Pena

      Idiocy is a true threat to the american people..btw..who are THEE american ppl..according to your definition😁
