Watters: 'Baffling' That Ocasio-Cortez Would Declare Upper Middle Class Extinct
Jesse Watters said that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "added insult to injury" in declaring that America's upper middle class "doesn't exist anymore" as her wing of the Democratic Party took a hit in Tuesday's primaries.
In a podcast interview, the New York democratic socialist congressional candidate said that the "upper middle class is probably more moderate but that upper middle class doesn't exist anymore."

"Its heyday was in the '90s when, like, kids had, like, Furbies and, like, parents ... had two vans and stuff," Ocasio-Cortez said.
Watters said it was "baffling" that Ocasio-Cortez, who is heavily favored against St. John's University economics professor Tony Pappas (R) in the Queens and Bronx district, would say such a thing.
Dana Perino agreed that the far-left is not being as successful at the ballot box as the media portrays it would be, compared to the moderate Democrats.
The Five also discussed Maryland's far-left Democratic gubernatorial nominee cursing at a Washington Post reporter who asked him about socialism.
"Are you f***ing kidding me?" former NAACP Chairman Benjamin Jealous said during an appearance in Towson, Maryland, when asked whether he "identifies" with the "socialist" label given to him by incumbent Gov. Larry Hogan Jr. (R-Md.).
