Wait, what? When did this happen?
I’ve seen efforts by the Establishment to use Bernie and AOC as pawns to trick people into voting for a status quo agenda but I have never seen anything remotely resembling “mainstream acceptance” of their platforms. Yeah, the response to Tulsi has been rabid to say the least but there is no reason to paint Bernie and AOC as more acceptable to make Tulsi seem less acceptable. The Establishment still hates all 3 with a burning passion.
