Joe Lieberman betrayed his party in 2008 by endorsing John McCain for president. Then he proceeded to sabotage the Democratic majority in the Senate. He is now a lobbyist for a Chinese company. So it shouldn’t be of much concern that he is now attacking AOC. It’s a badge of honor:
The former Democrat, who stumped for Republican nominee John McCain in his loss to Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential race, made similar comments about the newly elected 29-year-old congresswoman last week on FOX Business, saying “I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who taunted conservative critics with a video of her dancing in the halls of Congress, snapped back at Lieberman on social media following his first round of comments.
“New party, who dis?” she tweeted to her 2.3 million followers.
It makes you wonder who Lieberman is working for when he attacks AOC. He hasn’t been saying much over recent years. Now he’s come out of the woodwork. Maybe he’s looking for a job with another disloyal American, Donald Trump:
Former US senator Joe Lieberman should register as a foreign agent for his work on behalf of Chinese telecommunications company ZTE, according to a complaint filed on Tuesday with the Justice Department by the Campaign Legal Centre.
Lieberman filed as a lobbyist last month for ZTE, which is facing scrutiny over alleged national security threats its products pose to the US. Under federal law, lobbyists for foreign commercial clients are exempted from the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA.
