Joe Lieberman, former Democratic Senator from CT, made it clear he is not a fan of New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Republicans jumped on the revelations, telling the newspaper that the episode reveals "hypocrisy at its finest" by Ocasio-Cortez. "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress".

"I think she needs to give herself an opportunity to know her colleagues and to give herself a sense of the chemistry of the body before passing judgment on anyone or anything", Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) said.

"People are afraid of her", a senior Democratic aide told Politico, as some Democrats have withheld criticism of Ocasio-Cortez in fear that she'll go after them on Twitter.

Recently Ocasio-Cortez told Politico that she wasn't interested in backing progressive candidates against incumbent Democrats, insisting that she's "focused on my job".
