Michael Moore is all in for Ocasio-Cortez, going as far as saying the age limit for President should be repealed so she could run. Fox News reports:
Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore declared U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the new leader of the Democratic Party, while urging political moderates to take a position because there “is no middle ground anymore.”
“She is the leader. Everybody knows it. Everybody feels it,” Moore said of the freshman congresswoman from New York during a Friday interview on MSNBC.
Moore said the age requirement to run for president – 35 – should be constitutionally amended so that Ocasio-Cortez could make a play for the White House. He said Ocasio-Cortez is the leader of a movement, citing a Fox News poll that showed voters favored her proposal to increase the tax rate to 70 percent for the richest Americans.
Moore also urged those with moderate views to “take a position,” in response to a question about whether someone like Ocasio-Cortez, with very progressive politics, could turn off moderates.
Although Ocasio-Cortez has potential for leadership within the Democrat Party in the future, she remains a 29 year old former bartender with good social media skills but little life experience compared to Donald Trump or any top level experienced politicians.
