AOC evades question about potential presidential run in 2024 [Video]

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:


  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dodged Stephen Colbert’s question if she might run for president in 2024.
  • “I don’t know about all of that,” AOC replied with a laugh, emphasizing the “need to focus on keeping a democracy.”
  • Ocasio-Cortez also told Colbert that House members who asked Trump for pardons should be expelled from office.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dodged a question from Stephen Colbert who asked if she would run for president in 2024. 

In an appearance onTuesday’s episode of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Ocasio-Cortez was asked on the possibility of her joining the 2024 presidential race.

“You know, I know somebody who is going to turn 35 about a month before the election in 2024, and they represent New York’s 14th. Is that job appealing to you at all?” Colbert asked the 32-year-old New York Democrat.

Ocasio-Cortez would turn 35, the minimum age required to become a U.S. president. several weeks before the 2024 presidential election.

“Listen, I think that we need to focus on keeping a democracy for anybody to be president in the next couple of years. And that’s my central focus is helping the people of this country right now,” she replied. 

“So it’s possible,” Colbert prodded.

“I don’t know about all of that,” Ocasio-Cortez, responded while laughing.

In the interview, the congresswoman told Colbert that she thought House members who asked Trump for pardons should be expelled from office.

“It was just stunning to understand and see the detail and the depth through which there was a conscientiousness of guilt,” she said, adding “They knew that what they were doing was wrong.”

During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez declined to answer if she would back President Joe Biden for re-election in 2024.

“I’m focused on winning this (House) majority right now and preserving a majority this year and 2022, so we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,” Ocasio-Cortez told host Dana Bash.

The White House has already stated that Biden will seek reelection in 2024. He will be 81 by then.

  1. Ocasio-Cortez would be the LAST person we need as president! She would be worse than biden( if that were possible) she is dumber than a bag of rusty hammers! The ignorant things she comes up with would be the worst things for our country. Thinking cow farts are the cause of global warming is just one of many! Hopefully, she will be voted out of congress in the mid-terms, along with the rest of the “ squad”. We Need way better candidates than they are to represent their districts!

    1. Hi Patty; Lookey here, gas-passing cows might be the problem. They may stop out-gassing if a vaccine were developed for these poor animals. Just think, Vaccinate and no more climate change. I say let’s go for it…

  2. REALLY this last AIR HEADED PUPPET isn’t enough? This broad couldn’t make a good bartender so they elected her out o there.

  3. The bitch that needs to be expelled from office is AOC. She should be prosecuted for insurrection and instigating terrorism and national riots. She should be sentenced to death by burning at the stake over a small fire, so it takes the evil witch a long time to die. It should be televised globally.

  4. 3/3 previous commenters (and I as 4/4) think she’s been terrible at everything she’s tried. Gee, I wonder who the DNC is probably priming to run?

  5. It is quite evident these nit-wits do not understand the Constitution. The term “democracy” has been thrown around by high officials who should know better! The United States is not a democracy! The word never appears in the Constitution, which plainly states we are a Representative Constitutional Republic. Big difference!

  6. Quite correct JD. They just throw this word around as mucn as possible to try and make everyone THINK we are. We a NOT a “mob rule” country. If we were a “democracy”, all the coastal states, who have the most population and are mostly populated by the communist, fascist democrats, would always be in power, forever. Our Constitutional Republic allows EVERY vote to count……or at least it used to before the democrat voter fraud. In the 2000 election they, along with Al Gore, experimented on just how far they could go without being caught. In the 2020 election, these communist clowns were all over the D.C. government and the swamp……….and HIGHLY ORGANIZED!!! We need a Republican Witch Hunt, complete with BBQ!!

  7. Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, AOC, Kamala Harris, NO NO NO the liberal democrats could NOT find any candidate, WOMAN, BLACK, WHITE, MAN, BROWN, that would be worth voting for! I personally have had enough! Biden/Obama administration has done enough damage to our Republic that who knows if we will ever be able to get back to being a great place to live, especially if we have to wait until 2024/25 to get rid of the idiots in power of this administration!
