How do you solve a problem like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Ocasio-Cortez, who at 29 became the youngest woman to be sworn into Congress, had the ideal millennial four-word response to the criticism: "New party, who dis?" For example, during a recent "60 Minutes" interview, she explained that being "morally right" is more important than being factually accurate.

Newly sworn-in democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has quickly become a darling on the Left, fashioning herself as the voice for the working class and the poor. Older and wiser Democrats don't care how many Twitter followers she has or how much ink she's getting.

"I'm sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people", Representative Emmanuel Cleaver (D., Mo.) told Politico.

Just kidding, she'll keep on plugging away on the exact social and environmental reforms she has been, which will ultimately do more to save us than Joe Lieberman ever did.

Republicans jumped on the revelations, telling the newspaper that the episode reveals "hypocrisy at its finest" by Ocasio-Cortez. Rank and file are peeved that there's a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesn't deserve.

Robert Mueller met with Trump's pollster
Since Robert Mueller made this a sticking point in seeking to overturn Manafort's plea deal, the answer thus far seems to be no. Trump has long denied any wrongdoing during the campaign and has labeled Mueller's probe a "phony witch hunt".

"She needs to decide: Does she want to be an effective legislator or just continue being a Twitter star?" said one House Democrat who's in lockstep with Ocasio Cortez's ideology.

"It's not a great look", one Democratic campaign veteran told the Daily News.

Some House Democrats aren't convinced.

"She's new here, feeling her way around", said Representative Kurt Schrader (D., Ore.). They've noticed that Ocasio-Cortez has hired two former organizers from the anti-establishment group Justice Democrats to run her office.

"I'm focused on my job", Ocasio-Cortez said.

AOC knows that - hell, she represents that - and judging by Joe's inane comments to somebody as far right wing as Cavuto... we think Joe may have an idea that his time has always been up, too.
