AOC Denies Claim She Wasn’t in Capitol During Jan. 6th Insurrection

We’ll just have to wait and see if Cortez can spin her way out of this one. 

There appears to be a great deal of controversy with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez today, and pretty much every day, for that matter.

The new-to-politics liberal has been a veritable media goldmine during her first couple of years in office, often finding new and innovative ways to catch attention on social media.

Yesterday, AOC reiterated the fright that she felt on January 6th, as a mob invaded the Capitol building.

On Wednesday, she was getting into Twitter feuds about whether or not she was even present during the attempted insurrection.

Newsweek even claimed that’s what AOC said.

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 then…

The two continued to bicker online.

Many social media users chimed in, reminding Americans of a photoshoot that AOC took part in at an immigrant detention facility earlier in her career.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Cortez can spin her way out of this one.
