Birds of a feather, am I right?
The liberal left is growing ever more radical, thanks to a wave of progressive politicians such as freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC, as she calls herself on Twitter, has been pushing the party hard to the left, and gaining momentum among millennials as she does.
Witnessing this success, some of the old guard Democrats appear to be jumping on the NY Representative’s bandwagon, hoping to hitch a ride on her curiously shooting star.
Failed Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has now latched herself onto AOC’s bizarre call to have White House Adviser Stephen Miller removed from office.

“Every day Stephen Miller remains in the White House is an emergency,” Clinton tweeted before promoting a letter calling for Miller’s removal, signed by organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and NAACP.
The letter was produced by The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, a nonprofit coalition of “more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the civil and human rights of all persons in the United States,” according to its website.
The letter accused Miller of supporting white supremacy and stoking bigotry during his career.
“Supporters of white supremacists and neo-Nazis should not be allowed to serve at any level of government, let alone in the White House,” it read. “Stephen Miller has stoked bigotry, hate, and division with his extreme political rhetoric and policies throughout his career. The recent exposure of his deep-seated racism provides further proof that he is unfit to serve and should immediately leave his post.”
The SPLC, a liberal nonprofit known for accusing conservatives of “hate,” claimed last week that Miller sent emails “promoted white nationalist literature and racist propaganda” to conservative news site Breitbart in 2015 and 2016 when he was working for then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham offered a stinging rebuke of Clinton’s statement, issuing a statement to Fox News saying “Every day Hillary Clinton was in office WAS an actual emergency”.
