On a recent appearance with Fox Business News, former U.S. Senator and 2000 Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman criticized rising-star, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying her progressive positions are not where the heart of the Democratic Party lie today.

“With all respect, I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is,” said the perennially grumpy Lieberman.

"She's gotten a lot of attention because she's different. She's controversial," Lieberman continued. "But if you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House, they tend to be, I say, center-left, if they are not left-left. And that is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans."

The 29-year-old social media-savvy congresswoman (the youngest woman ever elected to Congress) fired back via Twitter with an epic burn asking, “New party, who dis?”
