Joe Biden: Ocasio-Cortez is ‘Smart as Hell’
Biden praised the Democrats on a Morning Joe interview that aired on Tuesday
As Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to push the Democratic party to the brink of losing the House in 2020, presidential front-runner Joe Biden praised the socialist democrat saying, "I think the freshmen, particularly AOC, is smart as hell."
The former Vice President also said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's handling of the freshmen lawmakers "squad" was masterful.
Biden praised the Democrats on a Morning Joe interview that aired on Tuesday morning, seemingly unaware that both Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) recent antics may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020, according to a new internal Democrat poll in swing districts released on Sunday.
Bidens' remarks come a day after the Ocasio-Cortez, and three other female freshman lawmakers condemned President Donald Trump's tweets were he said they should, "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came."
In March, a Quinnipiac University poll quizzed both Democrats and Republicans regarding the 29-year-old New York socialist and found that those who know who she is, don't like what they see.
The Democratic Party freshman has been causing a stir Capitol Hill and in the media since she was recently elected.
When asked about AOC, however, the poll found that the majority of the voting public answered either "unliked" or "unknown" regarding their opinion on the controversial congresswoman.
"All is definitely not A-OK for AOC," Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement.
"Most voters either don't like the firebrand freshman Congresswoman or don't know who she is."

Smart as hell
It's not hard to challenge Biden's praise for AOC, here are just a few pointers:
- The freshman lawmaker blamed the Washington DC tornado on "Climate Change."
- She's compared the Southern border detention facilities to Nazi concentration camps.
- She collapsed the Amazon deal with New York that cost New Yorkers over 25,000 new jobs, for simply not understanding it.
- And she also said American workers should be "excited" about losing their jobs to robots after "being automated out of work."
These are just a few 'smart as hell' things Ocasio Cortez has said; we'll leave the rest to floppy Joe elaborate.
