Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ate her own fake news after she was called out by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
On Monday morning Ocasio-Cortez got her feathers in a ruffle from a fake news attack on Press Secretary McEnany, claiming that she was racists for referring to AOC as a Biden advisor and not calling her by her correct title Congresswoman. The fake news was instigated by politico reporter Jake Sherman.
“@PressSec wouldn’t be the first person to mistake a women of color for having a lower position or title than she does, but Kayleigh – in case you haven’t picked up a newspaper in two years, I’m a Congresswoman,” she posted.
“The @PressSec comment is steeped in a long, hurtful, & horrendous history of stripping women of color of titles and diminishing them to “the help.”,” she continued in another tweet.
“Perhaps she isn’t aware that what she did is mired in racist history. If that is the case, I look forward to her apology tomorrow.”
We posted screenshots of the congresswoman’s tweets at the very bottom of the post just in case they delete their tweets.
For some reason, she deleted this tweet while she was raging.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany didn’t wait long to respond and her answer silenced Ocasio-Cortez.
She posted a screenshot of the transcript that showed she correctly referred to AOC as a “congresswoman.”
Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has hammered the White House press core since taking the job, they tried to send in AOC to shut her down and failed.
