"Ingraham Angle" host Laura Ingraham spoke at CPAC in Maryland Thursday in an address streamed on Fox Nation.

Ingraham said she has received criticism for taking Democrats seriously and even for occasionally complimenting Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

"[Ocasio-Cortez] is the thought-leader of the Democratic Party right now," Ingraham said of the Bronx and Queens legislator.

Ingraham said the rise of such ultra-liberal politicians prove that President Obama "wasn't left-wing enough for the Democrats."

She said that today's Democratic Party "responds to peace and prosperity ... with socialism."

Ingraham added that many pundits on the left and right have underestimated President Trump's success on multiple fronts.
