You won’t find many out there arguing that the democratic party is in ostensibly good shape. In fact, it seems as though the left side of the aisle is actually in quite a bit of peril.
The election of 2016 may have been just the first of many signs of a dying regime. Not only was the DNC in utter financial peril, but they then allowed themselves to be co-opted by Hillary Clinton’s coffers in exchange for a clear shot at the nomination. It was collusion at its finest, but, given that The Clintons were involved, not a great many folks were surprised.
Now it looks as though the left is ready to hang their hopes on a democratic socialist named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who, at 28 years young, has shown her age for more often than her acumen.
It’s been a hilarious, gaffe-prone OTT mistake-fest on par with “Road House.” Almost anyone with a humorous molecule in their body can’t help but laugh.
Well, except for Kaniela Ing.
For all I know, Ing is a fellow with a goodly dollop of humor added to his constitution. He’s a state rep and democratic socialist who was vying for the seat in Hawaii’s 1st District this fall.
Ocasio-Cortez, of course, has been big about lending a helping hand to democratic socialist candidates across the fruited plain, including outside of the contiguous United States. With Hawaii’s primaries fast approaching, she visited our nation’s 50th state Thursday to give a boost to Ing.
One problem — she forgot to introduce him.
Get ready to cringe:

If this doesn’t just sum up the recent iterations of the democratic party, I don’t know what does.
