AOC becoming as thuggish as Trump


Threatening moderate Dems who don’t tow the progressive line with primary challenges. Sound familiar? There are some very common threads between Trump’s rise and AOC.

Not many took Trump seriously in 16 at first, but it quickly became clear that we overestimated the overall political IQ of the GOP base. Downplaying this movement on the left might have the same result.

Bennett had some thoughtful comments on the matter—he is representing Colorado well, as does Hickenlooper. I’m pleased with both of Colorado’s prospective Presidential candidates-the Dems would be smart to follow their path. Unfortunately, the momentum doesn’t seem to be on their side.
