AOC Still in Fetal Position After Jan. 6 Riot

  • The Hill

By: Konrad Holden

In Brief: 

On a podcast last week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) admitted that she was doing therapy as a way to work through her experience due duringto the January 6 riot at the Capitol. With gross disrespect to US soldiers, she even went so far as to say that members of Congress had basically served in war. 

The Background:

On the Latino USA podcast last week, Ocasio-Cortez admitted that she is still recovering from the January 6 riots at the Capitol. This is despite the fact that the congresswoman was in the Cannon House Building across the street from where the breach happened.

She went on to claim that the nation was 60 seconds away from a “martial state” and that people “don’t want to acknowledge that that is how close we got.” 

Ocasio-Cortez admitted to her interviewer that she is in therapy due to the Capitol riots. Her colleague and fellow “Squad” member, Ayanna Presley, told her that she needed to recognize the trauma that she went through on January 6.

All of this should make a red-blooded American wonder if someone who needs therapy after experiencing zero actual violence to herself has the intestinal fortitude to lead and exercise her office as a lawmaker. 

Notable Quotes: 

“Yeah. Oh, yeah, I am doing therapy.” - Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

“There are things that happened that day, that if 60 seconds went differently, if a different door was opened, if a chair wasn’t barricaded in a certain way, we could have a completely different reality right now.” - Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
