WATCH: AOC Dismisses Criticism as Republican “Conspiracy Theory”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) addressed criticism that she had faked being handcuffed when police arrested her at a pro-abortion rally in Washington, D.C., dismissing it as a Republican conspiracy theory.
“Republican’s favorite hobby is to make conspiracy theories out of everything to distract you and keep you from talking about what actually important which is the fact that they are trying to take away your right to bodily autonomy,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “If I was faking that, why would I intentionally fist pump somebody? It’s so silly.”
The congresswoman was one of 17 lawmakers arrested by the US Capitol Police on Tuesday for blocking traffic during a pro-abortion protest. Ocasio-Cortez said she was “arrested, charged, and fined.”
“Politics has become performative art,” Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) wrote on Twitter. “So of course @aoc fakes being in handcuffs. Performance, not policy, is the name of the game here.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter, writing: “No faking here. Putting your hands behind your back is a best practice while detained, handcuffed or not, to avoid escalating charges like resisting arrest.”
AOC Stay relevant – go back to bartending
You mean kneeling ?? She has a porn video out and I saw it but it disappeared from My old
win 10 Laptop .
She is such a phony. Putting your hands behind your back is the worse thing to do. The cops will think you are hiding something back there. I suggest she do her job and quit wasting tax payers money and quit thinking it’s OK to murder innocent babies.
AOC is not even a convincing idiot, just an idiot.
For a person (can’t say lady) to get arrested and fined, she then complains that she needs a raise, like $170,000 is not enough. I wonder how much she makes on the side?
