President Donald Trump is not the only politician keeping his supporters and critics glued to social media. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is also dominating the headlines on this Tuesday.
The fiery Democrat has found herself in a bitter Twitter fight with Liz Cheney.
AOC has captivated the nation by destroying senior officials working for Trump who put the safety of the country at risk by granting security clearances to 25 individuals whose applications had been previously denied for “disqualifying issues.”
During a hearing on the disturbing New York Times report on the security clearance, the New York congresswoman said: “I mean, every day that we go on without getting to the bottom of this matter is a day that we’re putting hundreds, if not potentially thousands, of Americans at risk. I mean, really. What is next? Putting nuclear codes in Instagram DM? This is ridiculous.”
Miss Ocasio-Cortez brought up the September 11 terrorist attacks by saying: “We need to get to the bottom of this. And in order to do that, we have to issue subpoenas because people in this administration are not cooperating. And every day that there is an insecure line of communication that could be leaked, that could be hacked, that could be screenshotted without proper channels is a day that we are putting our national security at risk.”
She went on to say: “It is so serious, especially as a New Yorker, especially as anyone who cares about the security of what happens on American soil, every day that we have an insecure line of communication, we have a responsibility to investigate and make sure that is — that we get to the bottom of it.”
Ocasio-Cortez recently appeared at a Town Hall on MSNBC where she made a gaffe by saying that Congress amended the Constitution to prevent President Franklin D. Roosevelt from being re-elected for a record fifth term.
Ocasio-Cortez incorrectly stated: “They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt did not get reelected.”
The Republican daughter of the former Vice President Dick Cheney seized on the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gaffe to mock AOC: "We knew the Democrats let dead people vote. According to @AOC, they can run for President, too."
AOC hit back: "Hey Rep. Cheney,
I see from your dead people comment that you get your news from Facebook memes, but the National Constitution Center + Newsweek are just two of many places where you can clarify your misunderstanding of the history of the 22nd Amendment."
Cheney said: "Hey @AOC, I know you’re busy, so I thought this short video would be helpful to introduce you to the basics of the Constitution. If you’re still trying to figure out how a bill becomes a law, they have a great video on that, too."
Do you agree or disagree that the feud is good for the two sides?
