Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Comments from Claire McCaskill: ‘Pretty Disappointing’

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded today after comments about her from outgoing Democratic senator Claire McCaskill.

McCaskill gave an interview to CNN this week wherein she said Republican lawmakers privately admit President Donald Trump is “nuts,” but she also made news in questioning why Ocasio-Cortez is “the thing” and “a bright and shiny new object” for Democrats.

“I’m not sure what she’s done yet to generate that kind of enthusiasm,” McCaskill said, “but I wish her well.”

She also suggested that Ocasio-Cortez’s message may not necessarily resonate with voters in states like Missouri.

Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter today, calling McCaskill’s comments “disappointing” and saying what Republicans admit in private means nothing:
