Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Schooled Aaron Sorkin After He Told Democrats To ‘Stop Acting Like Young People’

Aaron Sorkin has always been an inconsistent genius. For every Sports Night or The West Wing, there’s a Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. He’ll write Moneyball or The Social Network, but also The Network. So it’s not surprising that he occasionally says the wrong thing. For instance, the Oscar-winning writer just went after the new crop of elected Democrats, with predictably grisly results.

Sorkin was speaking on CNN with Fareed Zakaria when he weighed in on the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib. This particular stretch was caught by the progressive activist Jordan Uhl, who posted it to Twitter.

“They now need to stop acting like young people. It’s time to do that,” Sorkin said, adding that the Democrats have, he believes, “a great opportunity to be the non-stupid party.”

The Oscar-winner wasn’t done. He questioned the sincerity of some social battles Democrats have fought. “It’s not just about transgender bathrooms. That’s a Republican talking point they’re trying to distract you with.”

Sorkin’s words received worse reviews than The Newsroom. Ocasio-Cortez, one of the people he was likely subtweeting, tweeted out her disapproval:

David Hogg, not (yet) a politician, also weighed in:

Soon the pile-on was on.

Failed Larry King replacement, Entourage movie cast member, and tireless internet troll Piers Morgan inevitably tried to get in on the fun, not to beat up Sorkin but to mansplain to Ocasio-Cortez.

But that didn’t go well either.

In addition to recently mounting a stage version of To Kill a Mockingbird, now on Broadway starring Jeff Daniels, Sorkin is toying with the idea of a sequel to The Social Network, which will surely show that the 2010 film was, if anything, too kind.
