The queen has spoken…
As if poor old Joe Biden didn’t have enough problems as he waits for this big coming out party during the second night of the big debates, he now has to deal with a less than enthusiastic attitude toward his candidacy with the de facto leader of the Democratic party.
Lunchbucket Joe has had a lousy week after a thorough pummelling from his fellow contestants for the nomination over remarks where he praised pro-segregation Dixiecrat senators and then refused to knuckle under and apologize for such unforgivable blasphemy.
The former Vice President was flayed alive by Cory Booker who much to old Joe’s relief, won’t be onstage for Thursday’s main event in Miami but the dagger that he has now found embedded squarely between his shoulder blades has been driven in by celebrity Twitter diva Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who slammed the frontrunner in a new interview for feminist gossip mag Vogue which gave the 29-year-old the star treatment.
In the interview, AOC declared that if all that stood between President Trump and a second term was Biden then Tuesday, November 3, 2020, will be another very sad day for the tortured souls whose lives were irreparably destroyed when Hillary lost the 2016 election because she thinks that Beltway Joe is going to be roadkill.
She still has not settled on who she will endorse.https://t.co/uRjANgYuGS

Via The Washington Examiner, “AOC: Democrats will lose to Trump if Biden is nominee”:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez predicted President Trump will be reelected if Democrats nominate Joe Biden to challenge him in 2020.
The New York congresswoman said Biden, the front-runner in the Democratic presidential primary, is “not a pragmatic choice” because he could repel more liberal Democrats while appealing to Trump voters.
“That’s my frustration with politics today, that they’re willing to give up every single person in America just for that dude in a diner,” she told Vogue. “Just so that you can get this very specific slice of Trump voters? If you pick the perfect candidate like Joe Biden to win that guy in the diner, the cost will make you lose because you will depress turnout as well. And that’s exactly what happened to 2016. We picked the logically fitting candidate, but that candidate did not inspire the turnout that we needed.”
One year after she won her Democratic primary against Joe Crowley on June 26, 2018, @AOC has brought a different color palette and an eagerness to Congress that has shifted the stale air. https://t.co/9DYfqCQwbn

Additional details from Vogue’s “36 Hours With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez”:
On the other hand, she also rejects Joe Biden’s “appeal” as a centrist Democratic Party presidential candidate. “I think that he’s not a pragmatic choice,” she says when we discuss his latest comments on working with segregationists. “That’s my frustration with politics today, that they’re willing to give up every single person in America just for that dude in a diner. . .Just so that you can get this very specific slice of Trump voters?
If you pick the perfect candidate like Joe Biden to win that guy in the diner, the cost will make you lose because you will depress turnout as well.
And that’s exactly what happened to 2016. We picked the logically fitting candidate, but that candidate did not inspire the turnout that we needed.” Despite pressure to endorse, she thinks it’s too early for anyone to do so. “We haven’t even had a debate yet.”
AOC will likely be further piqued after the septuagenarian gaffe machine stuck his foot into his mouth in another fundraiser for the establishment high-rollers who are fronting him by admitting that “nothing” would really change under his presidency which will infuriate the volatile young socialist.

She tipped her hand last week when joining with others blasting Obama’s ex-second banana for demanding an apology from Booker who all but called Sloppy Joe a racist:
For the record, Cory Booker does *not* owe Joe Biden an apology for pointing out that waxing nostalgic about working with segregationists is insensitive.
“He knows better?” Really? What is “better?” To stay quiet about it? https://t.co/RvFzqAXPI5

Now that the leading voice in the Democratic party – at least according to the national media – has delivered a running dropkick to Biden’s crotch on the eve of the debate, things could deteriorate rapidly once he squares off with a desperate Bernie Sanders and the vicious knife fighter Kamala Harris, both of who need to take him down a peg to enhance their own chances.
As for lunchpail Joe? Don’t hold your breath for AOC’s coveted endorsement.
