    President Joe Biden criticized supporters of former President Donald Trump as a “significant minority” of Americans during a press conference in Europe on Monday. The president spoke about Trump and his supporters during a press conference after a day of NATO summit meetings with world leaders. He said: I think it’s appropriate to say that the Republican party is vastly diminished in numbers, the leadership of the Republican party is fractured and the Trump wing of the party is the bulk of the party, but it makes up a significant minority of the American people.

    Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel is ready to step out and party - well, almost. The chair of the department of medical ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania hasn't been to the theater in over a year and he says he's "dying to go." He's also planning to travel to Switzerland this summer. But first, he has to sort out a big open question - both for himself, and for anyone he's going to share some air with. "How am I supposed to prove that I've been vaccinated?" he asks. "What I have now is a CDC cardboard piece...

    New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said at a press conference Thursday the U.S. should “stop building” jails if we want to reduce the inmate population. “It is not acceptable for us to use jails as garbage bins for human beings. We need to treat people and see them as human,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “If we want to reduce violent crime, reduce the number of people in our jails, the answer is to stop building more of them.” “The answer is to make sure we actually build more hospitals, we pay organizers, we get people mental health care,” she said. “It’s...

    Rep.

    House Democratic leadership discussed the legality and logistics of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) filing a restraining order against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) after the Republican has verbally attacked the progressive lawmaker, and likened COVID-19 restrictions to the Holocaust. Top Democrats have reportedly floated a potential restraining order for Ocasio-Cortez against Greene, sources told Politico, noting the Democrat would likely have to seek the order out herself. Greene first confronted Ocasio-Cortez before she was elected to Congress last year as a conservative activist. Earlier this month, after Greene shouted “Hey, Alexandria” multiple times outside the House chamber, Greene pressed the...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took a swipe at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Thursday, likening her to the “kinds of people that I threw out of bars” after the Georgia Republican aggressively confronted her outside the House chamber the day before. "I used to work as a bartender. These are the kinds of people that I threw out of bars all the time,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters on Capitol Hill. “For me, this isn't even about how I feel. It's that I refuse to allow young women, people of color, people who are standing up for what they believe, to...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blamed the worsening immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border on imperialism, climate change, trade policy, and the prison system. Ocasio-Cortez sounded off on the border crisis Tuesday on Instagram. The New York Democrat did not explicitly blame President Joe Biden for the surge of illegal migrants crossing the U.S. border, though migrants themselves cite the president and his policies as primary factors in their decision to travel to the U.S. “So let’s talk about this because so much of our national conversation, which is not a conversation, about immigration is driven by people who could...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accused the Republican leader of the House, Kevin McCarthy, of being controlled by QAnon-supporting members of Congress, claiming the party has had an influx of 'legitimate white supremacists' into its ranks. The New York congresswoman appeared on MSNBC on Wednesday night and was asked about shocking behavior by Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. Greene, who openly supports the QAnon conspiracy theory - the idea that Donald Trump was sent to save the world from a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles, working in the 'deep state' - has found herself in the spotlight for her social media posts.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was noticeably missing from President Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday. The self-described democratic socialist claimed that security concerns were a factor in her skipping the inauguration, adding that she and fellow Democratic lawmakers don’t feel safe around Republicans. Ocasio-Cortez appeared on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” where she was asked about her absence at President Biden’s inauguration. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said Thursday evening. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is criticizing President-elect Biden's new coronavirus relief, arguing that it doesn't go far enough to help people in need during the pandemic. Biden's stimulus plan, which includes the increased payments, would cost $1.9 trillion. According to The Washington Post, most people would end up with a total of $2,000 in stimulus, including $600 checks dispensed in recent legislation. But that wasn't enough for Ocasio-Cortez, who appeared to want the latest checks to reach $2,000 as she and others have repeatedly requested. "$2,000 means $2,000. $2,000 does not mean $1,400,″ she told the Post.

Kathleen Rice. The New York congresswomen had been jockeying for the seat and lobbying colleagues behind the scenes, but Rice ultimately won in a vote of 46-13, Politico reported Friday.
