Barack Obama just lost everything because of one stunning betrayal
Barack Obama was the unquestioned leader of the Democrat Party.
But now Obama is seething after facing this massive challenge to his authority.
And Barack Obama just lost everything because of one stunning betrayal.
Barack Obama waded in to the 2020 campaign with a plea for Democrats to reject the radical candidacies of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
Obama argued America was not a revolutionary country and that if Democrats veered too far to the left, Donald Trump would win re-election.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who endorsed Bernie Sanders in the 2020 Presidential elections – immediately fired back at Obama.
Ocasio-Cortez argued that by pursuing policies such as the “Green New Deal,” a socialist health care takeover, and massive tax increases, the left was actually pushing the Democrat Party to embrace its radical roots.
I want to be the party of the New Deal again.
The party of the Civil Rights Act,
the one that electrified this nation and fights for all people.
For that, many would call us radical.
But we aren’t “pushing the party left,”
we are bringing the party home.pic.twitter.com/wLeDaxCHkZ

There is no question that Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement – as well as those from fellow “Squad” members Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar – saved Sanders’ candidacy.
Sanders was floundering the polls and eventually left the trail after suffering a heart attack.
But three members of the fabled “Squad” endorsing Sanders injected new momentum into his campaign.
And even though Sanders’ radical platform renders him unelectable in a General Election, he stands a strong chance of winning the nomination because – as Ocasio-Cortez points out – Democrats are a radical party at heart.
