Here's looking at you, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez . . .
Saying that he blames the Democrats as much as the Republicans for the current DC disarray, Tom Brokaw, appearing on today's Morning Joe, said, "you've got the young people running through the halls, who are the new members of Congress, who are conducting pep rallies every day." Brokaw described the Dems being "driven hard by the left."
Brokaw urged both sides to "get together and talk to each other."
Leftists on Twitter have not reacted kindly to Brokaw's outburst, describing him as "trash," in full "get off my lawn" mode, etc.
TOM BROKAW: It's a very troubling time. I think the Democrats are as much to blame right now as the Republicans are. They've got control of the House but they're mostly just, yeah, yeah, yeah, we're not going to do what you want to do. I haven't seen a grand plan. You've got the young people running through the halls, who are the new members of Congress, who are conducting pep rallies every day, instead of getting together with the more moderate people, or the people from the Midwest who have won in Ohio, and Wisconsin and Minnesota where they need to win again if they're going to get the control, but they're driven hard by the left.
Make no mistake: Brokaw is a liberal. But he's an old-school liberal. He undoubtedly yearns for the good old days when Republicans were in a perpetual House minority, and complaisant Minority Leader Bob Michel would amiably find a way to go along with Dem plans.
