“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg criticized New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for “pooping on people” before she has accomplished any legislative wins.
"[Ocasio-Cortez is] very opinionated, which we like. We like opinionated women," Golberg said on Monday. “But it is very, very difficult when people make accusations where you say, you know, the Democrats have done nothing, the establishment of the Democrats have done nothing.
“And I just want to throw this out to you. [Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.)] wasn’t sitting still. [Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.)] wasn’t sitting still," she continued. “You just got in there, and I know you got lots of good ideas, but I would encourage you to sit still for a minute and learn the job. There are people in that party who have been working their tails off for this country. You could learn some stuff from them."
"You don’t have to be born into it,” she added. "You don’t have to know it when you step out, but before you start pooping on people and what they’ve done, you got to do something, too.”
AOC takes aim at establishment Democrats:
Goldberg’s comments came after Ocasio-Cortez vowed to back primary challengers to unseat establishment Democrats.
On Sunday’s edition of “60 Minutes,” Anderson Cooper asked the newly elected congresswoman about her “politically dangerous tactics” in taking on her own party.
"It requires risk to try something new, but also we — we know so much of — of what we've tried in the past hasn't worked either," she replied.
