Ocasio-Cortez spoke at a ceremonial swearing-in at a high school in the Bronx.

Republican strategist Susan Del Percio agreed.

"She needs to follow some of the more successful more mature members", Ms. Brzezinski said, suggesting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as an example. "I watch AOC with a lot of hope but I'm cringing, and I would love to give her some advice".

"Nice to see her adapting to the swamp so quickly", he added.
