New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loves to blast people on Twitter but when it comes to take some of what she gives she runs and hides.
One America News Network (OANN) reporter, Liz Wheeler, called out the 29-year-old freshman representative in one of her tweets and got blocked for it.
“Trump spent millions on a poorly attended, 1 day parade days after saying he couldn’t afford toothpaste & soap for caged children,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Did he ask Congress for military parade💰? No.Trump held these kids hostage to secure billions for their abusers. Congress needs to see that,” she added.
Liz Wheeler didn’t wait long to respond to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, so she went on Twitter and slammed the freshman representative using truth and facts.
“Stop. You voted NO on a $4.5B bill to give emergency humanitarian relief to migrant children in the border detention centers.”
“If you wanted to help the kids, YOU COULD HAVE. But you didn’t,” Wheeler responded in the tweet that got her blocked.
“Omg hahahah @AOC blocked me!” Wheeler said in another tweet. “I am ALWAYS respectful & civil. I present facts only, nothing personal. Somebody is threatened by facts & the truth!”
“This is the tweet which made her block me. And this is her tweet I was responding to. The truth stings,” Wheeler said with a screenshot.
“Dear Lord. Just ignore people who are rude & civilly engage people who challenge your policies. You are a PUBLIC OFFICIAL, @AOC. It’s a critical part of our public dialogue & self-govt to hold elected officials accountable,” she said in another tweet.
And she is 100% correct. A court ruled that a public official can not block anyone on Twitter after President Trump blocked some users a while ago.
“I’m also team never-block. I’ve legit never blocked a single person on Twitter. I love engaging with people who disagree with me! Guess @AOC isn’t confident enough in her ‘principles’ to do the same,” Wheeler said.
“Also you’d have to be a tech illiterate Granny to think blocking somebody prevents them from seeing your tweets.”
“So the only reason to block… is so your ideas aren’t challenged. There’s a fitting word for that: cowardice,” she also added.
