A report from conservative media outlet Red State claims Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) wasn’t in the Capitol when rioters breached the building on January 6.
AOC wasn’t even in the Capitol building where all the action was going down. If she was in her office, she was in the Cannon Building which is nearby, but a different building. But of course, many didn’t get the logistics and just assumed that she was in the Capitol building.
According to Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who has an office in the same hall as AOC, two doors away, there were never any rioters in their hall so there was never any physical danger from rioters coming in at any point.
AOC said in recounting her “near-death experience” that she feared for her life when a Capitol Police officer came to her office who “didn’t feel right.” According to the dramatic re-telling, the officer was looking at her “in all of this anger and hostility.”
Capitol Police officer knocking on her door to direct her to another building, the Longworth Building, where she then stayed in the office of Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA).
Okay, so maybe Ocasio-Cortez was being a little melodramatic in her retelling of that time when Ted Cruz practically hired a group of assassins to take her out (sarcasm alert). That said, we’re pretty confident you don’t thank an officer for saving your life by publically shaming him for allegedly looking at you with “anger and hostility.”
