Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was just humiliated in front of America when former President Barack Obama did not include her on a list of over 100 Democratic candidates who he is endorsing as they run for office this November.
Obama released a statement on Monday voicing his support for 118 Democrats running for federal, statewide, and state legislative offices from 17 locales including New York, New Jersey, California, Texas, Illinois, Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Nebraska and Nevada.
“I’m proud to endorse this diverse and hopeful collection of thoughtful, empathetic and highly qualified Democrats,” Obama said, according to Fox News. “Together, these candidates will help us redeem our country’s promise by sticking up for working people, restoring fairness and opportunity to our system, and fighting for the good of all Americans — not just those at the top.”
He went on to add that these candidates make him “optimistic not just about our party’s chances in November but about our country’s future so long after that.”
“So if you’re in one of their districts or states, make sure you vote for them this fall,” Obama said. “And if you can, vote early — by mail or in person.”
The former president’s office added that he will be issuing a second wave of endorsements this fall after the remaining states’ primaries have ended.
“Our country’s future hangs on this election, and it won’t be easy,” Obama said. “But pandemics have a way of cutting through a lot of noise and spin to remind us of what is real, and what is important.”
“Elections matter,” he continued. “And we need Americans of all political stripes to get involved in our politics and our public life like never before.”
One of the candidates that Obama endorsed was Jamaal Bowman, a former middle school principal and first-time candidate who managed to beat longtime Rep. Eliot Engel in New York’s Democratic primary in June. Though Bowman is supported by Ocasio-Cortez, Obama pointedly did not include her on his list of endorsements.
Ouch, that has got to hurt for Ocasio-Cortez!

The narcissist obama* was afraid she would get some of the attention he KNOWS is meant for him alone. How DARE SHE try to steal part of the stage from his one man show ? She was supposed to stand in the wings, applauding every face he made and word he uttered. (or is it "uddered") (I guess we'll have to ask the cow)
It's not the Communist way. Look at ANTIFA and BLM as examples.
Can't believe the PC Police on this site did not nail your post. Have said mush less and got zapped.
