Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said the Democratic Party is not as far-left as people may think. In a recent interview with Axios, the former U.S. vice-president debunked the notion that the bulk of the party is severely liberal.

Despite Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) being a prominent face of the party, Biden said the notion that the majority of the party is following her lead is a false one.

When asked what he thought about Medicare for All, Biden said that’s not what the party wants. “The party’s not there. The party’s not there at all. … you know the numbers” You guys got it all wrong about what happened,” Biden said.

Jamarlin talks about the recent backlash against Lebron James for not speaking up for Joshua Wong and the violent Hong Kong protestors.

When host Mike Allen told Biden he sounded like President Donald Trump, he admitted he did.

“It’s not fake, it’s just bad judgment. You all thought that what happened was the party moved extremely to the left after Hillary. AOC was the new party. She’s a bright, wonderful person. But where’s the party? Come on, man,” Biden said.

According to the New York Post, this isn’t the first time Biden has been at odds with AOC’s extreme liberalism. He once told CNN despite how brilliant ACO was, she only “won a primary.”
