AOC Defends Biden’s Legacy as Highly Successful

(IntegrityTimes.com) – Republicans have long criticized President Biden for his gaffes and failing memory, but most of the mainstream media has chosen to ignore the issue. That all changed when Special Counsel Robert Hur released his final report after investigating Biden for his mishandling and willful retention of classified materials. The report highlighted Biden’s inability to recall significant dates and occurrences throughout his career, which thrust the issue of his age and cognitive capabilities into the spotlight.

Some Democrats and media personalities have begun publicly expressing concerns, but the White House has attempted to reassure the American people that Biden is up to the job. Others have defended him and compared him to former President Trump, who is nearly four years younger than Biden. Far-left radical progressive New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) believes that Biden is “one of the most successful presidents in modern American history.” She made the claim during a CNN interview on February 13, citing Biden’s legislative successes such as the Inflation Reduction Act and the American Rescue Plan.

AOC told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Biden and former President Trump were close in age, adding, “And beyond that, Donald Trump has 91 indictments.” She said that Biden would have her vote in 2024 and that it appeared he would be receiving the Democratic nomination since most of the filing deadlines had already passed. NBC News recently laid out the scenarios in which Biden could be replaced as the nominee. Outside of his withdrawal from the race, the likelihood of that happening is virtually zero.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Biden campaign co-chair Mitch Landrieu defended Biden during a February 11 interview on MSNBC. Mayorkas said that Hur’s remarks about Biden’s mental acuity should not have been included in his report. Landrieu claimed that Hur’s report proved that Biden did not do anything wrong. In reality, Hur found that Biden did mishandle classified information.
