New progressive champion Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke to Anderson Cooper during Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” and actually apologized if the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., was hurt by her insults.
“If he felt genuinely threatened by me, then I apologize,” she said. “But I think that frankly, it’s any legal advice that anyone would give him.”
Ocasio-Cortez noted that Trump Jr. should probably not come on the attack against those in Congress because they now have subpoena power over him.
Cooper reminded her that most politicians don’t apologize, but Ocasio-Cortez said she doesn’t mind breaking all of the rules.
“On the other hand, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen,” she said of Trump Jr.’s whining.
“People know that if you’re coming after me, you’re opening yourself up,” she continued. “People know that my style is sarcastic but honest and I take people at their word. And I will hold them accountable as well.”
She said that she wasn’t threatening consequences to anyone who comes after her, but admitted: “I will take you down a peg if you’re not being fair.”
She also said that Trump didn’t invent racism but he’s given a voice to it, and for that, he should be held responsible.

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
