Liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez clashed with her conservative colleague Rep. Lauren Boebert over who hosts a better town hall, a few days after one of AOC’s was crashed by other liberals who accused her of being a warmonger.
“On the rare occasions that [Ocasio-Cortez] actually spends time with her constituents, she is reminded that she has sold them out at every turn. She campaigned as an outsider and has now just morphed into #SandyPelosi,” Boebert tweeted on Thursday, sharing a video of the protesters squaring off against the liberal rep and accusing her of “voting to start a nuclear war” with Russia.
The self-proclaimed socialist lawmaker responded to Boebert’s criticism by claiming that the Republican was afraid to hold “town halls open to all.”
“Hey Boebert, you seem to have us confused,” AOC said on Twitter. “I have attended & hosted 100s of community events, hold regular town halls, don’t take a dime in corporate cash. You: are bankrolled by corporate PACs, Big Ag, & Oil, are too scared to hold regular town halls open to all.”
In her response, Boebert noted that AOC had clipped the video of the heckling incident out of her response and called her a part of the “machine now.”
“I notice you took a screenshot of my tweet instead of sharing the original one with the video of you getting completely ripped to shreds by your own constituents. I have governed as I campaigned. You sold out your supporters. Just own it. You’re the machine now,” Boebert tweeted on Friday.
Far left activists crashed Ocasio-Cortez’s town hall earlier this week and slammed the congresswoman for her support of sending military aid to Ukraine, citing Tulsi Gabbard, who recently left the party.
“Tulsi Gabbard, she’s left the Democratic Party because they’re a bunch of war hawks,” the heckler continued. “You ran as an outsider, yet you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine. You’re voting to start a third nuclear war with Russia and China. Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens?”
“You have done nothing! Tulsi Gabbard has shown guts where you’ve shown cowardice,” the man said, asking Ocasio-Cortez to “denounce” the Democratic Party as well.
