(VIDEO) AOC: I’m Polarizing Because ‘Rich Men Are Not the Center of My Universe’

Could not load the poll.


BEHAR: “Because you are a star yourself. It’s almost like you’re running. The media gives you —“

OCASIO CORTEZ: “For reelection.” (Laughter)

BEHAR: “Well, yeah, but I’m talking about president. And the media gives you a lot of attention, and yet you’re very polarizing for some reason. Some people — some people love you and some people don’t love you. I mean, we have that problem ourselves but since you’re — I mean, it goes with the territory, really, and we all accept it. But you trigger people. Why do you think you do that, and how does it manifest?”

OCASIO CORTEZ: “Yeah. I think there’s a couple of reasons. One, before people even knew who I was, like five minutes after I won my primary, it was the apocalypse on Fox News.”

HOSTIN: “Yeah.”

BEHAR: “Why?”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “And I think it’s because our political system is not designed for people like us. They’re not designed for working people to succeed, for young people, for women, for people of color. It’s not particularly welcoming, and historically to have someone like that ascend, especially when I was running against someone who was the antithesis of those things.”

BEHAR: “Yeah. To ascend so rapidly.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Right. It’s — it’s — it’s upending but also I think it’s because our entire political system revolves, frankly, around rich men and rich men, and rich men are not the center of my universe. Working families are. And — (Cheering and Applause) — I think that is controversial.”

BEHAR: “You have that in common with Bernie Sanders.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Absolutely.” (Laughter)
