Ocasio-Cortez STUNNED After Republican HITS Back
Did she think she would get away with saying this?
During an Instagram Live video, Ocasio-Cortez had compared Ted Cruz along with Roy and others with “abusers” which caused Roy to respond to her statement.
Roy said, “I was saddened to learn about the trauma that my colleague, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, described in recent days regarding sexual assault. Nobody should go through that, and I hope that she has received justice and experiences peace in the matter. As to her claims about my position, I will not be swayed from my beliefs about right and wrong — regarding this or anything else. Her comparison of my defense of colleagues to her circumstances were again inappropriate, but I am not going to participate in discussing her personal experiences as a political matter.”
“It does not change the fact that her allegation against Sen. Cruz was completely unacceptable for a Member of Congress to make against another member for engaging in free speech and debate about what our Constitution says about electors. Nor does it change my position that she should apologize for and retract those remarks. Members of this body have a duty to work to mend the tattered fabric of our Republic, stop this heightened rhetoric, stop the social media sniping, and move forward to actually do the work the American people sent us here to do.”
Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats are willing to bring others down to make themselves feel better. Read the rest of the article here.
