9. AOC

She needs to show some real leadership and fire her Chief of Staff. Ad-hominem attacks are the lowest of logical fallacies, and it displays to the whole world this guy can’t see beyond the color of his own skin.

For AOC’s Chief of Staff to stoop to ad-hominem attacks waters-down her excellent message. It emphasizes the weakest card in her hand—racism—something that may work locally on her base, but make enemies of allies she needs beyond that one tiny Congressional district election.

People like that on her staff are a liability, unless she agrees. If she does, then she owns the statement, too.
