New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is getting more out of control with each passing day that she wields power. After noticing most people are against her new proposal, the congresswoman is making up conspiracy theories as excuses.
In a tweet that offered no evidence and was quickly removed, AOC claimed that the reason she was experiencing so much backlash was a Republican was dumping money into a bot army to attack her.
The deleted post previously read:
“If you notice a lot more trolls on social media re: politics, it’s because Mitch McConnell’s former Chief of Staff runs a multimillion-dollar operation to have bot accounts manipulate online discourse.” Adding, “Because we all know how hard they work to make the world a better place.”
The Republican on the receiving end of this bizarre attack is Josh Holmes. He responded by calling on journalists to seize this moment and ask what was going on in a series of tweets.
“Every journalist in America should ask @AOC what she’s talking about here. This was a voter registration project. She’s easily the most reckless politician in America,” the first read.
It was soon followed by, “If It becomes ok for Representatives to use their office to attack private citizens and businesses solely because of their political allegiances we lose the essence of American democracy.”
Democrats have got to start finding a way to keep their raving upstart more in check.
