[Ed. – Paranoid much?]
When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not weeping in congressional hearings — and then tweeting out her emotional performances — she’s alleging racism, as she did this week against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
But she’s now amping up her game in a new direction: Claiming she’s getting death threats — and blaming Pelosi for them.
The two have been locked in a battle, with AOC claiming Pelosi is giving her committee assignments that demand a lot of work, effectively taking the media-starved newcomer out of the spotlight. When Pelosi dismissed the charge, AOC then claimed the Speaker is racist.
Pelso [sic] has slapped four mouthy newcomers — Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). That, AOC said, is horrific.
“It’s singling out four individuals, and knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration of attention,” Ocasio-Cortez said on CNN. “I think it’s just worth asking why.”
