Ted Yoho He put his finger to my face Ocasio-Cortez details the "anger" incident with the Republican Chamber
I was walking up the Capitol steps to vote when reps Yoho and Williams came around the corner of the second flight. Ocasio Cortez recalled Tuesday speaking to Yahoo News via Twitter direct messages. When I pass other members on the steps, regardless of party, I usually nod or say hello, if I’m able out of nowhere, yo ho comes up to me and puts his finger in my face and flies off in a rage, he started going off about shootings and Bread and nonsense calling me crazy, shameful out of my mind, etc. At first I tried to talk to him, but that just made him yell over me more. She continued Williams then started joining in yelling things at me and said something about throwing urine. I don’t know what that was about. I said he was being rude and that this was unbelievable and started to walk away. He said I’m rude, you’re, calling me rude and I just kept walking to my vote. A spokeswoman for Williams denied the allegation that he yelled at her about throwing urine. According to the hill, which first reported, the incident yo ho called Ocasio Cortez a effing bitch as he walked away a spokesman for yoga denied their report. He did not call rep Ocasio, Cortez Wood has been reported in the hill or any name for that matter.
Brian caveny yokas press secretary, said in a statement. Instead, he made a brief comment to himself as he walked away summarizing what he believes.
Her policies to be Bulls, Ocasio Court has told Yahoo News. She did not hear exactly what he said at the time he kept muttering insults at me as I was walking away, but I and try to make it out. She explained. I thought he had said something, but didn’t assume that’s what he said. I actually confronted him later that day about what he did and he doubled down yelling at me again for a second time later in the afternoon, but their exchange on the steps of the Capitol was unusual. Even in a highly partisan town like Washington, there is usually a general understanding and decency among members on house grounds. She explained we are all in politics and understand how vicious media and campaign attacks are. Almost everyone has had bad faith or unfair attacks levied against them. At some point, which creates a strange sort of common ground among members when it comes to this sort of thing, folks at least ask if you actually said what’s being reported or, if it’s being taken out of context etc, but to launch into an attack based off Some random segment is really unusual to launch into an attack of any kind on house ground with not just one, but two members is virtually unheard of yokas spokesman denied. It was an unusual exchange.
Congressman Yoho had a brief member to member conversation on the steps of the Capitol caveny said. As you know, these conversations happen frequently when the house is in session.
He added it sounds better for the hill newspaper and gets more media attention to say he called her. A name which he did not do. It is unfortunate that Rep Ocasio Cortez is using this exchange to gain personal attention it’s unclear what if any repercussions yo ho could face for his conduct House Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer, called on yo ho to apologize to Ocasio Cortez on the House floor, Mr Ewell, who Is not only the congresswoman, an apology, but also an apology on the floor of the House of Representatives, Hoyer told reporters Tuesday. It was the act of a bully, the Maryland Democrat added bottom line. I think it was despicable conduct. It needs to be sanctioned. Yokas reported Rand may have been triggered by comments Ocasio Cortez made during a virtual town hall about a recent spike in crime in New York City Ocasio Cortez, who represents the Bronx and queens in Congress, said. Economic desperation caused by the koruna virus pandemic is partly to blame. Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent, and so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don’t have money. She said they’re put in a position where they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that night.
The comments were featured on Fox News and by other outlets, accusing her of conflating petty crime and gun violence.
Ocasio Cortez said her comments, who were purposely taken out of context by the right, but she couldn’t recall any past conversations with Yoho on this or any other topic I tend to get along with Republicans. I serve on committees with as much as they drive us nuts. Sometimes but I don’t recall having a conversation with yo ho in my entire time here, she wrote asked what she sees as a solution. The congresswoman said she wasn’t sure. I do not know what the solution to conservative media is, but it is dangerous. She said my office always sees spikes and violent threats after I am on Tucker Hannity and ingre hams programs in particular. We know it’s their programs, because the people who call tend to repeat lines and topics from their show the night before almost verbatim in their attacks. She said many of her GOP colleagues understand that much of what she says is intentionally manipulated or taken out of context, but many do not I’ve had some GOP members ask me in confidence. If some conspiracy theory ask right wing claims about me are true. Ocasio cortez said this has very real implications for policy making policymaking. Aside representative Matt gates Republican Florida tweeted in support of his Democratic colleague. I can confirm that Huck gets along with many of her Republican colleagues on a range of things that don’t have anything to do with legislation or politics.
