Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) spoke with David Remnick of the New Yorker:
AOC: I think that, when it comes to age, I think age gets used as a proxy for capacity. And so I think there are some folks that are of a certain age where you can kind of question their capacity.
REMNICK: Who are you talking about?
AOC: I think Donald Trump is a perfect example. [Laughs.] I don’t think he’s all there.
REMNICK: Joe Biden?
AOC: I think Joe Biden, his performance on the stage kind of raised some questions with respect to that. But I don’t want to say, just because someone is seventy-nine, they can’t or shouldn’t run for President. I don’t want to use those proxies, a number as a proxy for capacity. I think you have to assess a person’s capacity on a case-by-case basis.Save to Favorites
