AOC made headlines this week for her harrowing tale of near death during the Capitol riot earlier this month. But don't take my word for it:
"I'm here, and the bathroom door starts going like this [opening]... and the door hinge is right here," said AOC. "And I just hear, "where is she? Where is she?" And this was the moment where I thought everything was over... I go down and I mean I thought I was going to die."
She then broke down crying about potentially facing death.
This one Twitter clip was viewed over 6 million times.
Newsweek reported that rioters were trying to enter her office:
"Ocasio-Cortez said that rioters actually entered her office, forcing her to take refuge inside her bathroom after her legislative director Geraldo Bonilla-Chavez told her to "hide, hide, run and hide."
"And so I run back into my office," Ocasio-Cortez said. "I slam my door. There's another kind of like back area to my office, and I open it, and there's a closet and a bathroom. And I jump into my bathroom."
But, as it turns out, AOC was actually telling a story about Capitol police entering her office, as this AP Fact Check states.
Following protocol, the Cannon Building was evacuated briefly. It was not a mob, but officers who were looking for her – to protect her and safely take her to the nearby Longworth Building.
How did she repay the officers who would give their lives for her without hesitation?
By inferring that one of the officers intimidated her "in all of this anger and hostility," that she was confused about if he was coming to help or hurt her, and said one of her staffers thought he might have to fight him:
What a circus show.
AOC has also decided to accuse Sen. Ted Cruz of trying to literally murder her.
But the wonderful former barista from the Bronx would NEVER put on a show to manipulate tens of millions of Americans, knowing only a fraction would see the truth after the fact...
