Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez And Republican Representative Get Into A Major Altercation On The Steps Of The Capitol, AOC Says He Called Her A ‘B**ch’

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is no stranger to getting into some heated fights with Republicans but this one went to the extreme.

According to a report from The Hill the 30-year-old representative from New York was confronted at the Capitol by Florida Rep. Ted Yoho.

Tensions flared on Capitol Hill this week when a Republican lawmaker challenged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on issues of crime and policing in an unusual — and decidedly personal — confrontation on the Capitol steps.

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) was coming down the steps on the east side of the Capitol on Monday, having just voted, when he approached Ocasio-Cortez, who was ascending into the building to cast a vote of her own.

In a brief but heated exchange, which was overheard by a reporter, Yoho told Ocasio-Cortez she was “disgusting” for recently suggesting that poverty and unemployment are driving a spike in crime in New York City during the coronavirus pandemic.

“You are out of your freaking mind,” Yoho told her.

Ocasio-Cortez shot back, telling Yoho he was being “rude.”

The New York representative took to Twitter on Tuesday to tell her side of what she says happened and to go on the attack.

“I never spoke to Rep. Yoho before he decided to accost me on the steps of the nation’s Capitol yesterday,” she said.

“Believe it or not, I usually get along fine w/ my GOP colleagues. We know how to check our legislative sparring at the committee door. But hey, “b*tches” get stuff done,” she said.

True to her statement, staunch conservative Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz defended Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet.

“I can confirm that AOC gets along w many of her Republican colleagues on a range of things that don’t have anything to do w legislation or politics. She is not a bitch,” he said.

US News reporter Paul D. Shinkman said a third member of Congress, presumably Rep. Roger Williams of Texas, who witnessed the exchange said “I was thinking about some issues I’ve got in my district that need to get done.”

“What’s wild to me @RogerWilliamsTX is why would you blatantly lie to a reporter who saw this exchange? You were yelling at me too, about ‘throwing urine,’” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“Gotta love Republican courage from Rep @RogerWilliamsTX: when he undeniably sees another man engaged in virulent harassment of a young woman, just pretend you never saw it in the most cartoonish manner possible and keep pushing. (He’s lying, by the way. He joined in w/ Yoho),” he said.
