ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: The president is running around saying, did she even go to college? And on one hand, I could correct him and say, absolutely, I did. But on the other hand, what I was sharing with folks is, what does it even matter? There are plenty of people in this country that don't have a college degree, that could have absolutely run this country far better than President Trump has.

And so his gloating about people, and mocking of food service workers and people who don't have college degrees, is classless. It's disgusting. And frankly, he's telling you all what he really thinks of you. And I think that voters should really understand that and take it into consideration.
