GOP firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene reportedly confronted far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez outside the House chambers on Wednesday over what Greene implied was her support for ‘terrorists and antifa.’
As Fox News reports:
Two reporters from the Washington Post said they witnessed the interaction outside the House chamber. The report said Greene yelled to Ocasio-Cortez, and the Democrat continued walking. Greene reportedly tried to catch up and continued to ask questions. Greene also brought up her desire to debate Ocasio-Cortez, the paper said. At one point, Greene reportedly shouted, “You don’t care about the American people.”
Neither office responded to an after-hours email from Fox News seeking comment.
The Post reported that Ocasio-Cortez never stopped to talk, but at one point turned around to throw “her hands in the air in an exasperated motion.”
A spokeswoman from Ocasio-Cortez’s office told the paper that the office hopes “leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff.”
Greene has been attempting to arraign a debate with Cortez for some time, but it seems as though AOC isn’t interested in taking her up on the offer.
I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC to plan our debate about the Green New Deal.
