AOC Says GOP Is ‘Getting Scared’ of Her

Written by on April 18, 2019

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is accusing Republicans of “getting scared” after plans to have her visit a Republican-controlled district in Kentucky were canceled.

After Rep. Andy Barr, R-Ky., extended the invitation to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez during a House Financial Services Committee hearing in March, the freshman lawmaker accepted on the spot. But this week, Barr demanded Ocasio-Cortez apologize for comments she made about another Republican β€” Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas β€” before she could visit with Kentucky coal miners and talk about her Green New Deal legislation.

Ocasio-Cortez now believes the Republicans were bluffing about the trip all along.

She tweeted:

“GOP thought they could catch us with a bluff. Now we’ve got ’em on their back foot stutter-stepping πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ #TooLate”

She wrote in another:

“GOP’s getting scared that up close, their constituents will realize I’m fighting harder for their healthcare than their own Reps πŸ™‚”

In another tweet, she wrote:

“You know what’s interesting? Last month I invited @RepAndyBarr to come visit us in the Bronx and offer perspective in our MSNBC Climate Town Hall. He said no, because UK had an NCAA game that night. Fair. So I offered to fly him home in time for the game. He still said no. πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ”
