Former Rep. Barney Frank said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s decision to support the Sunrise Movement’s takeover of the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was “stupid” during an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher Friday night. Ocasio-Cortez was supporting the Sunrise Movement’s efforts to pressure Pelosi into making the Green New Deal a legislative priority. Frank believes that Ocasio-Cortez is attacking Democrats too much and needs to focus more on going after Republicans.
In case you didn't know, this is the same Barney Frank who decided to completely sell out progressive values after ending his time in Congress by joining the board of a bank (part of the very industry he helped regulate as a congressman) and he recently supported limiting some regulations which would financially benefit his current employer. This kind of transparent corruption is very common amongst ex-legislators and is referred to as the “revolving door” of politics.
Frank also viciously attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary and earlier in Friday’s Real Time with Bill Maher episode he criticized Sanders for his handling of sexual harassment allegations on that same campaign. I find it quite odd that Frank, who hired a prostitute to work for him as an aide while also paying this prostitute for sex and providing their housing, would go after anyone for how they handle their staff.
Barney Frank is a sellout corporate Democrat with questionable morality. Nothing he says should ever be taken seriously from here on out.
