You're missing the point.

It doesn't matter if you support Ocasio-Cortez. Do you support a less divisive political climate (or society in general)?
As for your argument, Ocasio-Cortez may be a bright-eyed optimist with no real experience, and a lot to learn, but she differs from Trump greatly. She has a distinct ideology (regardless of how well she can defend it), she doesn't lie everytime she opens her mouth, she speaks coherently the majority of the time, she has bigger balls (sorry Trumpists, but being a bully doesn't equate to being tough), oh and she ain't running for the presidency.
I don't even necessarily support her (she has a few ideas I have a hard time coming to terms with), but comparing her to Trump in any way is ridiculous. Also, the reason we can't get problem solvers with experience is that they're all bought and paid for by the time they land in DC. We need fresh blood, even if they lack experience. Intelligent and open minded people have the ability to learn, afterall. These are folks who are shunning corporate money, and offering something that's sorely lacking in Washington, integrity.
