Only the pres needs to be 35 I thought?
The 12th amendment makes it so you can't be VP unless you meet the requirements to be president. ("But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.")

Wish Porter was the new face of the party over AOC and the squad. Yes passionate each of the squad. But they let emotions get in front of their mouth. Porter is far far more articulate and not a hot head.

I think AOC rarely puts her foot in her mouth regardless of how passionate. She puts her foot in her mouth less than most "calculating" types.

This is the difference between a Sincere Apology and an Apology just to do it.

If Yoho issued a sincere apology without the typical political wiggle room he would be in much better shape today and I believe AOC would accept and thank him for the apology.

For some reason the majority of Republicans have trouble stating clear and sincere apologies. I’m guessing that has to do with the people who vote for them, see Obama’s “Apology Tour” or see a potential future “Biden Apology Tour”.

Super simple example:
Yoho: “I am sorry for my behavior it was far out of bounds and disrespectful to you (AOC). You and I are colleagues I should have behaved better around you. I do not anticipate doing that again.


or give a reason:

I was particularly upset about x, y and z and I wrongly took my frustration out on you (AOC)

The bullshit he came up with by essentially saying he doesn’t remember using those words and *if* he did they weren’t directed at her is a sniveling way of avoiding the purpose of the apology.

Like I said. But apparently him and the other guy ran into Bill Cosby or the Men in Black.

AOC scares Trump, that's why he attacks her so viciously. He hates all competent women, probably a deep seated issue in his psychic because he is incompetent, and deep down he knows that.

That sounds a lot like a certain poster here as well.

He has so damn many psychological 'issues'. He's kind of fascinating in that respect. What kind of society seeks out the most psychologically-dysfunctional and damaged person they can find and puts him in charge?

I'd vote for her as president in the future, maybe 2028?
Oh yeah.... AOC is the future and as well for those like her. Just needs a bit more focusing and experience and she'll be ready to go for the presidency. She can raise my taxes any time. :p

That's what "home of the brave" means now. Let's put someone with obvious psyche problems in mental decline in the seat to lead the nation. Let's blame others, and I'll bring the popcorn.
