AOC Literally Runs Away When GOP Opponent Asks for Debate

Troubled socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suddenly fled a public event and literally ran down the street when a potential Republican challenger asked her for a debate.

The bizarre scene isn't the first time she's literally run away when asked a question, and is adding to mounting worries about her state as she commits almost-daily gaffes and often fails to comprehend or understand basic information.

Talk radio producer Rich Valdes, who plans to run against Ocasio-Cortez, was at New York's National Puerto Rican Day Parade when he spotted her near West 47th Street greeting voters.

Valdes plans to move into the district to run against her in 2020.

Valdes attempted to ask Ocasio-Cortez to debate capitalism and socialism when she reportedly jerked back, turned and literally ran, fleeing down Fifth Avenue.

Ocasio-Cortez "cut her handshaking short, jerked her hand back and jetted to the other side of the street," Valdes tells Fox News.

"She literally ran!" he added.

"I thought this was a good time to try and get a response but I honestly only saw the back of her head as she trotted across the street," he tells Fox News.

Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa witnessed the bizarre meltdown.

"As soon as she saw him she did a pirouette — a spin — and she ran north on Fifth Avenue, ahead of her delegation, just to get away from Rich," Sliwa tells Fox News.

Sliwa's wife was able to get photographs of the incident.

This isn't the first time Ocasio-Cortez has literally turned around and ran away when asked a question.

In January a New York Post reporter attempted to ask Ocasio-Cortez if she planned to forgo her salary during the government shutdown.

Ocasio-Cortez publicly called for congressional salaries to be withheld during the government shutdown, but it was unclear whether she joined others in voluntarily doing so.

Rather than answer "yes" or "no," she cried "I have to run!" before fleeing down a crowded hallway.

She was then spotted waiting in line for a photograph with Nancy Pelosi.

Her attempt to flee a question came just days before Ocasio-Cortez was completely stumped in a committee hearing, and could not comprehend testimony from FBI Assistant Director Michael McGarrity.

Ocasio-Cortez repeatedly asked McGarrity why white supremacists arrested for violence were not charged with "domestic terrorism."

Despite repeated attempts by McGarrity to explain to Ocasio-Cortez that "domestic terrorism" is not its own federal crime, and supremacists were charged for each individual terrorist act, and that what she thinks are "foreign terrorism" charges are for enlisting the support of designated foreign terrorist groups, Ocasio-Cortez could not process the information and continued to repeat her erroneous claims.
