"The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Monday called out Rep.

"[Ocasio-Cortez is] very opinionated, which we like. We like opinionated women," Golberg said on "The View." “But it is very, very difficult when people make accusations where you say, you know, the Democrats have done nothing, the establishment of the Democrats have done nothing.


“And I just want to throw this out to you. [Rep.

“You just got in there, and I know you got lots of good ideas, but I would encourage you to sit still for a minute and learn the job. There are people in that party who have been working their tails off for this country. You could learn some stuff from them."

Goldberg concluded by saying that "you don’t have to be born into it."

"You don’t have to know it when you step out, but before you start pooping on people and what they’ve done, you got to do something, too," she said. 

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress in November and is considered a rising progressive star in the Democratic Party. 

She acknowledged on CBS's "60 Minutes" on Sunday that she's ruffling feathers among the party's establishment. She's thrown her support behind an initiative to encourage primary challenges of Democratic incumbents who take corporate dollars or fail to embrace progressive policies.  

"It requires risk to try something new, but also we — we know so much of — of what we've tried in the past hasn't worked either," she said. 

Ocasio-Cortez was officially sworn into Congress last week.
