The Democratic party is about to tear itself apart.
Now that the Democrats think President-elect Joe Biden has won the presidency, they will be fighting harder than ever amongst themselves to push through some of their radical agendas.
Just today, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) fired back at Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) after he criticized her for being more active on Twitter than actually doing any work.
According to Breitbart, an angry Ocasio-Cortez fired back at Manchin and stated, “I find it amusing when politicians try to diminish the seriousness of our policy work, movement organizing & grassroots fundraising to ‘she just tweets,’ as though ‘serious’ politics is only done by begging corporate CEOs for money through wax-sealed envelopes delivered by raven.”
Issues began between Manchin and AOC last month when Manchin spoke out against the “Defund the Police” movement and AOC responded with an image of her staring viciously at Manchin when he was unaware.

Former President Barack Obama recently came out and endorsed AOC and told Democrats to be more accepting of her radical ideas.
Then, strangely enough Rep. Ilhan Omar attempted to pick a fight with Obama and said “Defund the Police” wasn’t just a slogan it was a demand after Obama said the idea was too radical.
We lose people in the hands of police. It’s not a slogan but a policy demand. And centering the demand for equitable investments and budgets for communities across the country gets us progress and safety. https://t.co/Vu6inw4ms7

We’re not sure how much worse this battle will get between Manchin and AOC. However, one thing is for sure. Pelosi is in store for some HELL by trying to deal with “The Squad” in the House which has already lost several important seats to Republicans giving Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley a lot of power among Democrats.
Will AOC Take Over The Democratic Party?
