Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) had a meltdown on Twitter Tuesday after it looked like her preferred candidate, Jessica Cisneros, would be defeated by incumbent Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Democrat in Texas’s primary runoff for the 28th Congressional District.

The Daily Caller reports:


Cuellar, a nine-term incumbent, is leading Cisneros by 177 votes in Texas’ 28th District as of Wednesday morning. Although Cuellar declared victory early Wednesday, Cisneros has not yet conceded, and ballots will be recounted. Top Democrats, most notably Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Majority Whip James Clyburn, supported Cuellar’s campaign through robocalls and in-person events, while Ocasio-Cortez and Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed Cisneros.

Accountability isn’t partisan. This was an utter failure of leadership,” Ocasio-Cortez complained of leadership’s support for Cuellar.

Congress should not be an incumbent protection racket and sadly it is treated as such by far too many. The fact is those who fail their communities deserve to lose. They don’t need rescuing from powerful leaders who state they fight for gun safety, the right to choose, and more,” she continued.

Consistently rated one of the most conservative Democrat in the House of Representatives, Cuellar was the only member of his party to oppose a bill that would legalize abortion up to the moment of birth and eliminate conscience protections for healthcare providers. He has spoken out against the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis, and has an A rating from the National Rifle Association.

Somebody give AOC the hook. Tired of her complaining about almost everything in regards to America’s future. Hopefully she will finally be voted out if New York has any sense at all.

Or they can gerrymander her out of her district since NY lost a seat in congress and need to redraw the maps to reflect that.

Theres not many smart New Yorkers. Those idiots keep electing fools like Cuomo, Hotcher or whatever her stupid name is and fools like AOC. Those morons in New York love high crime, lockdowns, mask mandates and all the other stupid laws their crappy legislature made. Just let the shi*hole called New York IMPLODE in on itself. With any luck it will fall into the Atlantic Ocean.

Do you realize the total irony of the Democrats? They are ready to kill helpless infants right up to and including after birth with their abortion on demand policies, but they feign concern and anger when kids are brutally gunned down in schools? But do they REALLY CARE??? Hell NO!!!
Again, it is all about power and social policies for these pathetic band of morons. Somebody should remind them to pick a lane–you can’t have it both ways, but they never seem to get it. When a deranged Dem gets in your face about gun control. quickly remind them about their baby killing policies—it will shut their asses up fast, and end of discussion!!!!
