A former staffer to radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has ripped Joe Biden by going public with insider sentiment on the Democrat president.
Communications director Corbin Trent worked in AOC’s Congressional office and on her re-election campaign before departing under mysterious circumstances in March 2020.
Trent co-founded the far-left group Justice Democrats.
The group was responsible for Ocasio-Cortez’s sudden rise, and her shocking upset victory against incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY).
Trent ripped Biden saying: “He’s deeply unpopular.
“He’s old as sh*t.
“He’s largely been ineffective unless we’re counting judges or whatever the hell inside-baseball scorecard we’re using.
“And I think he’ll probably get demolished in the midterms,” he added before saying Biden may not even be the nominee in 2024.
“People will smell opportunity, and D.C. is filled with people who want to be president.”
The news shows an even deeper divide within the Democratic Party and spells trouble for Biden and Democrats in the looming elections in 2022 and 2024.
From Fox News:
Progressive activists are also beginning to blame the president for his inaction on issues such as climate change.
Between Dec. 25 and Jan. 1, a group called “Occupy Biden” formed a camp near President Biden’s residence in Delaware, demanding that he declare a “climate emergency.”
A spokesperson for the group criticized President Biden for not doing enough when it comes to climate change.
“We do understand that an administration that at least believes and asserts that climate crisis is real is an asset.
But in a time of emergency we must act to do everything possible to avert catastrophe,” Karen Igou, a spokesperson for Occupy Biden told Fox News on Saturday.
While progressives are criticizing President Biden more and more, from issues like Build Back Better to climate change, some are skeptical that any primary challenger would be successful.
“I think when you look at the AOC and the Bernies, they’re really disappointed that the deal was struck by the end of this year.
I think they feel like he’s sold out. I think that they were really disappointed with any compromise that he made,” Lee Carter, a Republican Pollster said.
“They’re ready to pounce on him.”

When asked about rampant insider trading in Congress, all Nancy Pelosi could say was, “We’re a free market.”
All I heard was: “Let them eat cake.”
Why are the rules harsher for you, me, and Martha Stewart than they are for the Speaker of the House? pic.twitter.com/r5vmg3nz3V
