Jorge Ramos Says It’s Time for Latina President, Says AOC Is “Fearless”


It really shouldn’t matter what color the President’s skin is.

In a democracy, citizens should vote for the most qualified candidate.

Not the case though in journalist Jorge Ramos’s view!

He says the next President shouldn’t just be Hispanic, but a Hispanic woman.

And who does he have in mind for a candidate?

None other than socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez!

Newbusters provides the translation for Ramos’s original interview with El Pais:

Ramos sat down with El País for a broad interview which, in addition to some of his usual tropes (such as the demonization of Hispanic conservatives), closes out by reaffirming his singular devotion to the cult of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

RODRIGUEZ MANTILLA: Do you hope to see a Latino president?

RAMOS: Of course! Not just to see one, but I hope I’m able to cover one as a journalist. There are more Latinos than African-Americans. They’ve already had one. The next giant step would be to see a Latina in the White House.

RODRIGUEZ MANTILLA: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, once she’s old enough to run, after turning 35?

RAMOS: She’s part of the generation that my 31-year-old daughter Paola belongs to.

RODRIGUEZ MANTILLA: How do you define them?

RAMOS: Direct, fearless. They tell it like it is. They don’t wait. They show themselves to be very impatient. They handle cell phones and social media like no one else, and will quickly seize control from those who hold it now. So much so that I hope they’re in even more of a hurry.

Check out some of the reactions on Twitter:

By far, AOC is one of the most entitled, radical members of Congress.

Just last month, she called for the NYPD to be completely defunded!

How would she perform as President? Completelt disband the military too?

Fox News previously reported on AOC's call to disband the NYPD:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., weighed in Tuesday on the proposed New York City budget cuts to the police department she said don't go far enough, saying “defunding police means defunding police.”

“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the congresswoman said in a statement.

Establishment Democrats and progressives have debated over what “defund the police” actually means. Some argue the phrase shouldn’t be taken literally and just stands to represent police reforms.

“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”

The New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio reached a deal Tuesday to cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion budget.

If this country is still America, someone like AOC will never get anywhere close to the White House.
