Full title.........Democratic Whip Reins in Ocasio-Cortez: She Has an Understanding That Not Everybody Has the District She Has..............House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) said he spoke with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and suggested the young Democratic star had received the message that not every district is as open as New York's 14th to far-left ideas.
Hoyer spoke with the 28-year-old by phone on Thursday and they had a "good conversation" where he told her to focus on helping Democrats win the majority in the House of Representatives, Roll Call reported.
"I think she has an understanding that not everybody has the district she has," Hoyer said.
Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist who stunned the political world last month with an upset primary win over Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.) in New York's 14th district, has become an in-demand campaigner for progressives across the United States. She campaigned on such ideas as abolishing Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, a universal jobs guarantee, and forgiveness of all student debt.

President Trump needs to make that dumb ass the face of the Commie Rat Party..every time she opens up her trap more idiocy comes out. I would be shocked if she knew basic math skills
Does he mean a district full of racist dole scroungers?
IOW, most Americans aren’t as stupid as her voters...................
Note he is not saying “your ideas are bad ideas”, or “your ideas are not the ideals of our party”.
He is saying “go easy on the other members who can’t be so open about stuff because people in their districts aren’t crazy.
He is shushing her so that the more moderate Democrats won’t be scared off. They have been playing this double game for a long time, otherwise they would not be a major party.
Personally, I think little miss hottie Cortez should be allowed to run her mouth whenever and where ever she pleases. For she does represent the message the rats want to hide. This naive little thing is just being honest, which is why she’s being reined in.
I’m going to LMAO if Cowley does mount a third-party campaign and takes the seat anyway. I don’t care for Windbag Joe at all but it’d be awesome to watch the commie get her comeuppance in November.
Steny: “Hey, Lexy. Don’t let the crazy show yet.”
Does not matter, she is going to win in a landslide un November.
Cortez really needs to start pushing for the release of all the black guys locked up in prison. That will surely win!
He doubtless told her to STFU or no money for campaign.
Not just a simple ‘cray’, but a special ‘cray cray’.
(or, ‘kray kray’)
Haha, she really has gotten an ego boost from all the PR. She’s still an idiot socialist.
The Socialism gig won’t sell nationally for Dems.
Thats what Hoyer told her.
If the Rats get back in power, they will go right along with the little Commie.
Exactly! Hoyer just wants her to keep it under wraps so she doesn’t scare off EVERY Dem voter. We all know he would love to have a “socialist utopia”.
