Trump Campaign Aide Claims Democrats Are in ‘Disarray’ Because They Must ‘Kiss the Ring’ of AOC’s Squad

Mercedes Schlapp, a top campaign aide for President Donald Trump‘s reelection, claimed the Democratic Party is in “disarray” due to their support for members like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

For the past several weeks, Democrats have been clashing as a liberal “squad” of four freshmen congresswomen demand the party move further to the left. As IJR previously reported, Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff claimed that he would back primary opponents for moderate Democrats if they do not back the policies supported by his boss.

In return, Pelosi called on her members to take their disputes offline and address them in person. Ocasio-Cortez then accused Pelosi of “singling out” her, and Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) because they are women of color.

This public feud was sidelined after President Trump claimed the four could “go back” to other countries if they wanted to implement their far-left policies, a statement many took to be racist.

Schlapp claimed that the chaos on the Democratic side of the aisle stems from their fear of Ocasio-Cortez’s “squad.”

During an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Schlapp outlined why this may be a problem for Democrats.

Watch Schlapp’s comments:

“What are you seeing the other side? You’re seeing the squad dictating the rules of the Democratic Party which is very clear that they’re pushing forward, you know, very disturbing statements. […] They’re calling our Border Patrol agents Nazis. They’re calling our detention centers concentration camps. Omar herself has come out with very anti-Semitic remarks, basically saying to legislators that you have dual loyalty. That is problematic. And I think that is where you see the Democratic Party in disarray, where these Democratic presidential candidates are gonna have to kiss the ring of the squad because they are the new voices of the Democrat Party.”

It remains unclear how much influence the so-called squad will have over the 2020 elections. Ocasio-Cortez has yet to endorse any of the candidates, but recent bills with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Mass.) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) highlight that candidates are eager to work with the freshman representative.

The “Commie Quad Squad” hates America and Capitalism more than Marxist #44 hated America and Americans. Of course he loved capitalism because it filled his bank account with taxpayer money. Has a net worth of $40+ million; pretty good for a guy who never worked a job.

“No, a majority of Republican do NOT support Medicare for all!” Toni

You would be right if you were only referencing Republican POLITICIANS, but many surveys clearly show that the majority of Republican VOTERS understand that it is THEIR lives and money on the line and that a serious medical problem could at least bankrupt them or, in fact, kill them.

Don’t confuse the two groups. One is trying to kill you because they are corrupted by Big Medical and Pharma, the other fear for their lives.

They need to call that squad the fantastic fascists. Their superhero names should be criminal, crazy, deviant and lazy. Their abilities: to destroy freedom of speech, freedom of life, freedom of self defense and freedom to pursue prosperity.
