Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) admitted that Democrats should have taken former President Bill Clinton’s treatment of women more seriously.

Clinton admitted to having a sexual relationship with a White House intern while he was president of the United States. Beyond his White House infidelity, he has also faced several allegations of sexual assault and rape from people like Juanita Broaddrick.

While Clinton remains innocent until proven guilty of the allegations against him, that doesn’t mean that Democrats couldn’t have been more critical of the former president, as they were against other public figures accused of sexual assault.

During an interview on “ABC This Week,” Ocasio-Cortez admitted that Democrats “probably should have done more to respect the allegations against Clinton.

Watch Ocasio-Cortez’s interview:

The congresswoman also noted that she believes that former Vice President Joe Biden still needs to prove himself when it comes to his treatment of women, as well.

“I think that’s something that he has to, kind of, show the electorate. I think that, you know, I think that’s an issue where there’s a struggle. I’ll be completely honest. I don’t think he has — I wouldn’t say it is an incredibly severe — I don’t think voters think that he’s necessarily guilty of sexual misconduct or anything like that. But I do think there may be some discomfort especially seeing some clips this week and, you know the week before, telling a 13-year-old, telling her brothers to watch out for her and I think there are some things with female voters it’s not quite locked down and I think that there’s some ways to go. But this is also a cultural evolution I think that we’re having as a country.”

Ocasio-Cortez has remained consistent on the issue of mistreatment of women, regardless of party, while some of her colleagues have found that to be a more difficult task. She noted that she believes this is a reminder that women still face inequalities.

“Considering her cavorting around activities with her boy-toy and others no doubt….” What on earth are you babbling about?

Considering her cavorting around activities with her boy-toy and others no doubt, I don’t really believe she should be commenting on the misconduct of anyone.

Why is it she, like, is apparently educated – at least it’s on her credentials,- does she, like, write ‘valley girl’ talk and, like, cannot seem to form a coherent sentence. Like, is this, like, a person that you, like, want to, like, represent you?

What is the fascination that people have with this airhead?

Quit throwing softballs to this cabbage head, and start grilling her about the $1 MILLION she embezzled from her campaign fund….

This babble-mouthed bubble-brain has an opinion on everything.
It seems as if everytime she opens her mouth to fart the gaseous release makes the news.

Why is she constantly in the news? I could go a couple of well forever not hearing from or about her.

This woman cannot string together a coherent sentence. How did she get elected? Yes Clinton was guilty of crimes against women and was impeached yet remained in office.
