Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (R-NY) launched a vile, below the belt attack on Sen. Lindsey Graham (D-SC) after he took a small swipe at her during his debate on Friday night against his Democratic challenger, Jaime Harrison.
Ocaso-Cortez did not take kindly to Graham calling her out in the debate, saying that Harrison supports her “radical agenda” on environmental issues. After pointing out that he is a member of the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, Graham warned that going “down the AOC road” could “destroy the economy.”
This did not sit well with Ocasio-Cortez, who held nothing back as she attacked Graham with everything she had in response to his comments about her.
“@LindseyGrahamSC I’m not sure you believe in *anything* except preserving yourself. & let’s not get started on your climate denial,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I’ve seen a lot of spinelessness in DC, but you’re at the top when it comes to folding on your own values like a wet napkin. SC deserves better.
This is not the first time Graham and Ocasio-Cortez have gone at it publicly in this way. Last year, Ocasio-Cortez launched an all-out assault on the senator’s character after he dared to say, “We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists … they’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America.”
Once again, Ocasio-Cortez posted a hateful response to this on Twitter.
“I see @LindseyGrahamSC’s biggest issue w/ Trump’s racism is that it doesn’t go far enough – Graham wants to bring back 1950s McCarthyism, too,” the freshman congresswoman wrote. “GOP is doing this because they have no plan for our future. We’re the ones fighting for healthcare, edu, good jobs, & they got nothing.”
This comes days after Ocasio-Cortez attacked Trump on Twitter for bringing her up during his final debate with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“If you look at his plan, his environmental plan, you know who developed it?” Trump said at the debate, referring to Biden. “AOC plus three. They know nothing about the climate.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter, which appears to be her favorite medium to fight with lawmakers on.
“If we’ve been identified as public enemy #1 to the worst president in modern history and an entire party of his sycophants, then we must be doing something right,” she tweeted.
