Ocasio-Cortez says a Biden presidential run doesn’t ‘animate’ her

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

"We apologize to Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez for the use of unacceptable language in this email, and we do not approve of the message conveyed".

Like an unfortunate person suffering from Tourette's Syndrome - an affliction that presents itself as a series of uncontrollable public verbal outbursts - Australian-owned media giant Fox News can't stop talking about United States lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Barr had invited Ocasio-Cortez to come to his district in eastern and central Kentucky to learn how her Green New Deal could impact his constituents.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota on Friday after the duo criticized him for taking offense to Omar's description of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

For the record, here's Omar's comment in greater context, which does nothing to make what she said better.

The freshman congresswoman, who became a rising star in the party after scoring a shocking victory against a high ranking Democrat previous year, said she hasn't picked a 2020 candidate to support.

"From fundraising emails labeling @AOC a domestic terrorist to the constant questioning of @IlhanMN's loyalty to and love of country, the right-wing is actively inciting violence against young progressive women of color in Congress", organizers with the Women's March posted on Twitter. Elizabeth Warren for a tweet she fired off on Friday night, blasting Trump for his video montage - which showed clips of the Twin Towers collapsing alongside footage of Omar speaking about the terror attacks. "Why don't you go do something about that?" she demanded.

While Crenshaw has not co-sponsored the bill that Ocasio-Cortez referenced, he has not yet announced how he will vote.

"It is patently obvious that @IlhanMN wasn't trying to downplay the 9/11 attacks".

"Peak [Ocasio-Cortez] Telling a combat veteran that lost his eye FIGHTING terrorists in AFGHANISTAN to "do something" to help against terrorism", said one user.

"But I'm primarily a Yankees fan", Ocasio-Cortez said.

After the Texas Republican replied that it is "unbelievable" that a member of Congress would describe "terrorists who killed thousands of Americans" in such a manner, Omar called on leaders of both parties to join her in "condemning" Crenshaw's "dangerous incitement".
