Despite Michelle Obama’s pleas for party unity in her Tuesday night address at the 2020 Democrat National Convention, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), or AOC, just about shattered those dreams in a minute, flat.
During her short time slot at the Democrat National Convention, AOC used her time to warn Joe Biden not to discount the socialist wing of the Democrat Party by refusing to utter the words “Joe Biden” in her speech. In her speech, she focused her short spot blasting “racial injustice, colonization, misogyny.”
“I hereby second the nomination for Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont for President of the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
In April, AOC pledged her support for Joe Biden after much reluctance once socialist Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race.
Shortly after 10:17 p.m., Joe Biden became the official nominee for the Democrat Party.
