    Personally, two freshman Congressman (Congresspeople, Congresswoman, Congress person, whatever) will have exactly zero influence in what happens in Congress at this point in their careers.

    The press will eventually get tired of them and remove their current "bully pulpit" and they will disappear largely from view like all Freshman Congressmen. So to quote Alfred E. Newman, "What? Me worry?".

    @Counter Intelligence;

    There's no problem calling someone a racist, sexist or homophobe when it's the truth.

    matching Trump would necessitate a "rise".

    For almost no one

    If “little Marco” was as low as Trump went, you may have a case.

    I would argue that calling someone with a different opinion as being a :
    is more offensive than calling someone Little Marco

    Democrats have not sunk to Trumps level - because it is hard to sink to someones level when you began below them - matching Trump would necessitate a "rise". Which is a rather horrifying commentary on current affairs.

    Yet another false equivalence from Conservative minds.

    Ocasio-Cortez is a freshman Congresswoman from a liberal district. She has little influence on the big issues of the day.

    Trump is President. He has enormous, almost unchecked influence over the direction of the country.

    Yet, conflating the two and their over-the-top commentary is folly in the extreme.

    Its OK to call out every elected official that uses misinformation (outright lies) and profanity.

    Even when its your own party. I absolutely condemn the remarks of Rashida Tlaib and Ocasio Cortez.

    See, it's easy. We dont have to play Whataboutism when doing so.

    Lets all condemn it every time. Just a flat out condemnation with out any conditions or comparisons.

    Each side tends to paint the other side as the lowest member of their ranks. That is unfortunate. You cant heard all the cats into a line, but you can call out the strays.

    “Of course, one of the reasons facts have primacy over morality is that the latter is subjective.”

    Shocking that someone “on the right” was make such a philosophically bankrupt statement.

    Republican Cupp is a critic, but she never offers a constructive alternate to dealing with Trump. One expletive by a Freshman member of Congress and everyone goes nuts, yet no one bats an eye with Trump's vulgarity. Ocasio-Cortez is more of a media attraction but has little sway in the party, yet everyone thinks it is her voice that rules the day. Yet there are yawns at Trump's outrageousness. The reality is that the right wing propagandists are whipping up the media, and the media is too dense to see they are being used. Instead, wringing hands over a couple of comments by brand new members of Congress who have no power. See how absurd it is? And Cupp certainly can't keep it in perspective.

    Just like Quayle in '92, Ocasio-Cortez is going to be the gift that keeps on giving for 2020.

    Both parties have been down in the mud for quite some time. The only recent politician I can think of who rose above the filth is Mitt Romney, and he lost his presidential bid.

    "Why, so we can act like him, but this time with the Democrats' impunity and imprimatur? No thanks."

    She's right, of course. However, Ms. Cupp is looking at a few individuals, expressing poor choices of words. A far cry from an entire GOP party, aiding and abetting Trump in whatever he says and does.

    It's true that S.E. Cupp has been critical of trump and his behaviour but it's also true that trump has not been seriously impaired by his own vulgarity and boorish behaviour either with his party or his supporters.
    Democrats don't have to go there, but there doesn't seem to be as much value in elevating the level of discourse in the nation, does there?
