Politicians will find any excuse to have an argument.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shut down Nancy Mace‘s claims she was putting on a show after being arrested at an abortion rights demonstration outside the Supreme Court.
Radar has learned that drama imploded between the two after a viral video showed AOC walking with her hands behind her back while being escorted away by police on Tuesday. Moments later, she was seen lifting her fist in a show of solidarity with other pro-choice supporters.
Mace posted a photo of AOC after being cited for blocking traffic at the protest.
“Politics has become performative art. So of course @aoc fakes being in handcuffs,” tweeted Mace. “Performance, not policy, is the name of the game up here.”
AOC fired back one hour later, continuing their heated Twitter spat.
“No faking here,” she replied. “Putting your hands behind your back is a best practice while detained, handcuffed or not, to avoid escalating charges like resisting arrest.”
“But given how you lied about a fellow rape survivor for ‘points,’ as you put it to me, I don’t expect much else from you,” Ocasio-Cortez doubled down.
AOC previously disclosed that she didn’t tell police about being sexually assaulted in her 20s because they didn’t believe her when she had reported her stalker.
Mace, for her part, made headlines after sharing her personal story of being raped at 16.
“Idk,” the political figure replied to Ocasio-Cortez in another follow-up tweet, this time, sharing a video of the arrest. “Here you are @aoc breaking your fake handcuff pose for a good fist pump and shout-out to the crowd — looking ‘tough’! Good theater though,” Mace continued.
RadarOnline.com recently confirmed that Ocasio-Cortez was among the 17 lawmakers who were arrested and cited for crowding, obstructing or incommoding this week.
Amid the controversy over the ordeal, Capitol Police confirmed to The New York Post that “nobody was handcuffed as is standard for a noncustodial arrest.”
“As is standard for peaceful, planned protests — those who were arrested were ticketed and released on-site,” a spokesperson said.
AOC also defended herself from critics in a statement on Wednesday, saying, “I was arrested, charged, and fined. Police confirmed this fact and I posted the paperwork.”
She tries, oh how she tries. Anything to stay in the news, no matter how stupid it is. And right after her show, she passed the hats for donations for her reelection. That’s just what her constituents deserve for ever hoisting a bartender/ waitress on the American public. Oh, and she wants a raise for her performance s.
AOC is a HABITUAL LIAR , CON ARTIST , FRAUD , THUG and a 2 FACE ***** ! AOC was Nerve Ever Cuffed by the Capital Police or Secret Police at any Time during the Protest. Her and her 17 STOOGE Followers in the House were never Cuffed. I watched that Video 3 Times and she had hands behind her back without Cuffs and at One Time she raised her Right Hand and was Waving it around. U can’t always believe what a Bar Maid or Bar Fly ever says.
Too bad she wasn’t thrown in with the J6 protesters.
She is such an ASS.
AOC needs to go back to bartending.
She should have been thrown in Jail that would have the BEST place for this ***** ! It’s GOOD that Nancy Mace did call her Out on this B S . A LIAR ALWAYS A LIAR ! That’s how the STOOGE SQUAD SISTER’S got their Name ! Lol !
Those who vote for people like these deserve what they get in return.
She, like Biden, is not stupid. Those that voted for them however…
I dare you to post this comment!!!
Wow! Maybe you are unbiased after all.
