I would trust AOC over 90+% of those in govt with an R after their name. She seems like an open book to me.
Yes they lie too...heck cnn had a running total of Trump lies. This is not about Trump lying this is about AOC lying. We should demand more out of all these people as they represent us, but the world is full of lairs so maybe they do represent us.

The gang is pissed because they don't perceive that she wasn't in ENOUGH danger, disgusting.

If a bunch of hostile people with loaded guns break into your attached garage, i bet you'd still feel like you were in pretty grave danger. To minimize these things is jackass behavior.

Haha, what a ridiculous analogy. She's a lying POS and she's lied several times in the past. People that support her are morons. She's about 10X loonier vs. MTG- it's science.

You sir are an idiot.
While there have been the usual partisan takes on this during the last couple of pages of this thread, CNN actually took the time to fact check and believes that both AOC and her critics are stretching the truth.

CNN Fact Checks AOC

To AOCs credit, she has been the subject of more vitriol and hate than any Representative in recent memory. I think that she had every right to be scared out of her mind for the attack on the Capitol complex.

When the Luftwaffe started bombing London during the Blitz in 1940, everyone was scared shirtless. It's not like ladies were out tending their gardens in adjacent areas of England while London was getting clobbered.

Did you even read what I posted? Did you read the article? Where did I say anything about supporting lying?

I pointed out that CNN- of all media outlets- is being critical of AOC... supporting your case. You are so easily confused that I am again worried about your well-being. I hope that you get the help that you need. Does all of this talk about politics make your eyes rain like Simple Jack?

Snopes: Did AOC Exaggerate the Danger She Was in During Capitol Riot?

Claim

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exaggerated the danger she was in during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, in that she "wasn't even in the Capitol building" when the rioting occurred.

Rating

Mostly False

What's True

Ocasio-Cortez wasn't in the main Capitol building where the House and Senate Chambers are located.

What's False

However, Ocasio-Cortez never claimed to be in the main Capitol building. When the attack on the Capitol began, Ocasio-Cortez was, as she stated, in her congressional office, which is located in a network of office buildings immediately surrounding the Capitol, and her office building was one of the two buildings that were evacuated.

Around the time the clashes at the Capitol started, Ocasio-Cortez said she was at her desk scrolling through lunch options when she heard a loud, “violent” banging on her office doors. She ran over to her legislative director Geraldo Bonilla-Chavez (whom she calls “G”), who told her, “Hide, hide, run and hide.”

She hid in the bathroom of her office and realized that the person who was banging on the door had gotten inside and was yelling, “Where is she?” Ocasio-Cortez said didn’t know it while she was hiding, but the person calling that out was actually a Capitol police officer. In the moment, while she was hiding in her bathroom and the door started to open on her, Ocasio-Cortez said, she thought she was going to die. “This was the moment where I thought everything was over.”

Ocasio-Cortez went on to describe the ensuing chaos as she and Bonilla-Chavez tried to find a place to hide after the officer told them to evacuate, without directing them to a specific evacuation destination. While she and Bonilla-Chavez ran up and down stairways and wandered hallways, she said, they could hear rioters getting louder and louder, trying to break inside, and felt that at any moment the attackers might breach the building.

Ocasio-Cortez said they finally found U.S. Rep. Katie Porter, D-Calif., and ended up sheltering in place in her office. Porter stated in a Feb. 1 interview on MSNBC that Ocasio-Cortez’s level of “fight-or-flight” was so heightened that when Porter informed her that she was a mother and had everything they would need to stay there as long as necessary, Ocasio-Cortez had replied, “I just hope I get to be a mom. I hope I don’t die today.” Porter’s office also found Ocasio-Cortez extra clothes and sneakers to change into so she could blend in and flee if she needed to.

Ocasio-Cortez never claimed she was in the main building. She said was inside her office, which is in just one of the network of buildings containing congressional offices that comprise the Capitol complex. The office buildings and the main Capitol building are interconnected by a series of tunnels known as the Capitol Subway System, which allows members of Congress to traverse underground from their offices to their respective chambers.

Ocasio-Cortez’s building, Cannon House, is across Independence Avenue from the Capitol and was one of the buildings evacuated:

The online attacks on Ocasio-Cortez downplayed, from a safe distance, not only the sense of fear she felt in the moment during the attack on the Capitol, but also the imminent physical danger that she and others in and around the Capitol really were in during the attack. Five people died in the assault on the seat of the U.S. legislature, including a Capitol police officer who was beaten by a rioter with a fire extinguisher. Videos, images, and personal accounts by officers tell stories of mobs beating and overrunning police and injuring 140 officers. Rioters who breached the Capitol loudly voiced their desires to kill lawmakers, and hours after the attack began, one rioter wrote on social media, “assassinate AOC.”

The House Trial Brief for Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, prepared weeks later, observed that it wasn’t just those inside the main Capitol building who were in danger:

1612709509562.png

In her video, Ocasio-Cortez alluded correctly to the fact that it took police and the National Guard hours to secure the Capitol complex after the attack due to a series of glaring security failures. Images and videos from the attack show rioters had a significant period of free rein, breaking into and casually sitting at the desk in an office used by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, leaving behind smeared excrement and stealing the Speaker’s lectern.

Ocasio-Cortez made history when she was elected in 2018 as the youngest woman ever to serve in Congress. She is also a political progressive and a woman of color, and she is the frequent target of smear campaigns and disinformation. She has stated multiple times that right-wing smear campaigns have prompted death threats against her.

Capitol Rioter Also Made Death Threat Against AOC, Feds Say

A Texas man who boasted of being at the Capitol riot has also been charged with making a death threat against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

AOC reveals she got regular stacks of pictures from FBI of 'people who want to kill' her

Ocasio Cortez had her first taste of the threat of danger that came with her public profile barely a month into her first term representing New York's 14th District. A Coast Guard lieutenant — and self-described white nationalist — was arrested in Maryland with a stockpile of guns and a plot to kill AOC, vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and others. Investigation revealed that his internet search history included "where in dc to [sic] congress live." He eventually pleaded guilty to federal drug and gun charges.

Remember that this version of Right's vitriol is directed toward women of COLOR. Nothing scares the mediocre white male and his privilege than being eclipsed by a women of color.

It'd been nice if this horse-faced bartender actually had a real job before she started constantly talked about giving other people's money away.

What this country needs right now is the working middle class to pay for middle class white kids to study Russian lit while living in luxury apartments. Good to see she has her priorities straight.

I don't come from any money. You know how I (and all the other interns that I worked with did), we interned and worked a second job. If she was ever more than a bartender, she'd know that almost all internships will work with your schedule so you can work that second job.

Pay the intern? Well, now there are considerably fewer of them. Great idea.

Having people work for no pay is not a good idea either.
