Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may have expected sympathy but she’s getting sharply criticized for her shady recounting of her personal experience on January 6th during the violent capitol riots.
According to Breitbart News, Rep. Nancy Mace blasted AOC’s “dishonest” account of the U.S. Capitol riot in January. “Mace has challenged Ocasio-Cortez’s account of the story because their offices are two doors down from each other, and she argued that the ‘insurrectionists never stormed our hallway.'” noted Breitbart.
Mace did not hold back as she discredited AOC:
I own facts and not fiction. And when I saw the media reports of how it was being portrayed, I said this is dishonest. There weren’t rioters in our hallways banging down our doors that day. We were all barricaded in our offices in Cannon Office Building. I’m not going to discount the trauma, the harrowing experiences each of us had who were here that day. It was a very scary experience, and I’ve been very open with people about it. I sent my kids homes that week because I was worried about violence that might transpire.
