[Ed. – She’s so adorable when she swears gratuitously.]
Tom Brokaw can laud the sacrifices of Americans who grew up during the Great Depression and then went on to fight in World War II, but for firebrand freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the Greatest Generation are millennials.
The 29-year-old Queens-Bronx Democrat stroked the egos of both her fellow millennials and the subsequent Gen Z in her latest Instagram live video, claiming that young people are more “informed” and “willing to go to the streets” in protest than earlier generations.
“I think they’re badass,” said Ocasio-Cortez of young people in the clip, a copy of which was tweeted by conservative political voice Caleb Hull. “I think young people are more informed and dynamic than their predecessors.
“I think they’re profoundly courageous, because they’re willing to puncture more taboos and have conversations that, frankly, older generations sometimes struggle to have,” said AOC.
