Speaking of young liberals, the 79-year-old politician also took another swipe at the New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying, without making a direct reference to the latter, that granting that some people have a considerable following on social media, the more crucial matter is that there is a high participation in voting "on the floor of the House".

"But I'm primarily a Yankees fan", Ocasio-Cortez said. Now festival organisers hope to sprinkle some political stardust in the form of a glamorous 29-year-old congresswoman from NY.

Fox Business host Stuart Varney even acknowledged: "We have an AOC segment every single day nearly every single hour" because "she is good for our ratings".

The congresswoman said she has "a lot of issues" with a potential Biden White House bid.
