Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex (D-NY) just issued a ‘death’ announcement on live television. It is terrible news and millions of people are stunned.
Appearing on ABC News, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that “we came close to half of the House nearly dying on Wednesday,” referring to the U.S. Capitol being stormed by rioters following a pro-Trump rally nearby.
“We have to understand that what happened on Wednesday was insurrection against the United States,” she said. “That is what Donald J. Trump engaged in, and that is what those who stormed the Capitol engaged in.”
Ocasio-Cortez is blaming Trump for the riot, even though he encouraged supporters at the rally to march to the Capitol “peacefully and patriotically,” which is a far cry from how the media has reported it.
Trump never told people to riot; he never said to go inside the building. It is enraging that a group of supporters chose to reject his advice and make everyone else look foolish, including the president himself.
The FBI has been aggressively involved since the riot, which left at least one brave officer dead. There must be swift justice for this wanton act of violence, but there’s no proof that Trump incited it. Ocasio-Cortez needs to be called out.
