I have the same advice for Democrats re: AOC as I did for Republicans re: DJT.

Focus on policy and people, and shut your mouths long enough to maybe figure out why it is she resonates.

No one cares what you think. That's why we have them both.

Notice AOC criticizes but does not obsess over Donald Trump? She's substantively wrong but substantive, nonetheless.

She focuses on policy and people, something she ripped right from Donald Trump. No one cares if someone offends your delicate sensibilities. It's not about you...
Since no one really buys your "I'm so offended" holier/smarter than thou acts, people naturally begin to ask why these outsiders are met with such a visceral response.

B/C they don't buy the holier or smarter than thou acts, they conclude it is B/C they threaten a status quo...
You will then find yourselves defending that status quo, which enjoys bipartisan opposition among the little people who are tired of being ignored.

Good luck with that.
