Bernie Sanders camp blasted AOC’s Iowa rally performance last month, report says

When U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez filled in for Bernie Sanders at an Iowa campaign rally last month, her performance ended up irritating the Sanders camp, according to a report.

The New York Democrat and fellow Sanders supporter Michael Moore shared top billing at the event in Ames, home of Iowa State University, because Sanders was busy attending President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial in Washington.

But Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir wasn’t happy that Ocasio-Cortez neglected to mention Sanders’ name while speaking to the crowd – as Fox News reported at the time – and others on the Sanders team thought the congresswoman went too far by encouraging the crowd not to cooperate with U.S. immigration officials as they pursue illegal immigrants, Vanity Fair reported this week.
