...AOC is still pretty much a newbie.
Who would think in this short time she would have the clout to drive legislation to fulfill her wish list?
That's stupid to expect it.
As long as she's advocating for it, what's Sarandon's problem?

Susan and people like her believe you only have to "fight" hard enough and things the people want will get done. The only reason they don't must be corruption, bribes. All dysfunction in government comes from money in politics. Bernie Sanders has said so for decades and Susan believes what he says:

"The point that I make over and over ... is the ideas that I talk about are ideas the American people want. They don't get it because you've got a Congress indebted to wealthy campaign contributors."

... surely, Susan knows how government works! Protesting AOC... for not making Democrats and some Republicans more progressive? For not getting other congress persons into those states' positions? How, Susan?

those working for corporations, the financial industry, oil and gas industries, pharmaceutical companies (pretty much anybody with a job at a big company) are corrupt because they "take" money. This is such an old silly lie.

But taking money from a huge corporation is perfectly fine for Susan. No corruption as a political activist, don't be silly! The quid pro quo only applies to Democrats. Never ever give them the benefit of the doubt. Assume not having enough votes to do something progressive is because of corruption, money (her snarky tweet about AOC: "Please show us we were right to believe that you were owned by nobody but your constituents." ) "We" are pure, "They" are immoral and corrupt.
