Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went on to describe Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a "Trump-like figure" following his announced plans to formally annex Jewish settlements on the West Bank.

"I think these are part of conversations we are having in our caucus, but I think what we are really seeing is an ascent of authoritarianism across the world".

Democratic superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to back former Vice President Joe Biden's potential presidential run over the weekend; saying the top Obama aide's win would be "going back" while she hopes to "move forward".

"I actually think that social media poses a public health risk to everybody", she said.

Ocasio-Cortez also spoke highly of Sanders, who she campaigned for in 2016.

"I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue", she said.

In March, she said that she "had been clear" about how she would vote on an impeachment resolution, but that she would "defer to party leadership" regarding an actual impeachment vote.

"I think so", Ocasio-Cortez responded.

Ocasio-Cortez, who was born in the Bronx in 1989, explained that her affinity for the Yankees was fueled by growing up during the team's late-'90s dynasty.

She said cutting military or economic aid to Israel was "certainly on the table".

Scaramucci said New Yorkers are "tired" of the congresswoman.

"Like every once in a while, you'll see me hop on Twitter on the weekends, but for the most part, I take consumption of content, when it comes to consumption and reading, I take the weekends off", she said.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at a rally in New York City. "I think it's something that can be discussed", the prominent progressiver lawmaker said on Yahoo's "Skullduggery" podcast on Sunday.

An impeachment on Emoluments Clause grounds, she said, would "include any financial misconduct in relation to Russian Federation".
