Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez clapped-back HARD against Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
AOC tweeted yesterday to condemn the app Robinhood, which banned users from purchasing Gamestop stock in the battle raging between hedge fund managers and lay investors.
Then Cruz quoted her saying that he “fully agreed” with her suggestion that Robinhood should be investigated.
No ma’am. Not having it. She shot back,
“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered three weeks ago so you can sit this one out.
Happy to work with almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed. In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign.”
The anti-LGBTQ Cruz co-sponsored a bill that would explicitly permit discrimination against the community based on
“a sincerely held religious belief.”
Cruz also insisted that the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from Trump.
Seven Democratic senators filed an ethics complaint last week against Cruz, along with Missouri senator Josh Hawley, arguing that they “made future violence more likely” by giving “legitimacy” to voter fraud conspiracies. In an accompanying letter they said,
“When Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley announced they would object to the counting of state certified electors on 6 January, 2021, they amplified claims of election fraud that had resulted in threats of violence against state and local officials around the country.
While Congress was debating Senator Cruz’s objection, a violent mob stormed the Capitol.”
Ocasio-Cortez told Cruz:
“While you conveniently talk about ‘moving on’, a second Capitol police officer lost their life yesterday in the still-raging aftermath of the attacks you had a role in.
This isn’t a joke. We need accountability, and that includes a new senator from Texas.
You haven’t even apologized for the serious physical and mental harm you contributed to from Capitol Police and custodial workers to your own fellow members of Congress.
In the meantime, you can get off my timeline and stop clout-chasing. Thanks. Happy to work with other GOP on this.”
#WhatSheSaid: The only thing I can think to say good about Cruz is that he looks SLIGHTLY less disgusting with a beard.
