Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) exchanged barbs once again on social media after AOC was brutally heckled earlier this week.
In the exchange, Boebert also tagged “AOC” with a humiliating new nickname.
On the rare occasions that @AOC actually spends time with her constituents, she is reminded that she has sold them out at every turn. She campaigned as an outsider and has now just morphed into #SandyPelosi!” Boebert tweeted.
The New York Democrat responded: “Hey Boebert, you seem to have us confused. I have attended and hosted[hundreds of community events, hold regular town halls and don’t take a dime in corporate cash. You are bankrolled by corporate PACs Big Ag, and Oil.”
Hey Boebert, you seem to have us confused.
✅ have attended & hosted 100s of community events
✅ hold regular town halls
✅ don’t take a dime in corporate cash
🚮 are bankrolled by corporate PACs, Big Ag, & Oil
🚮 are too scared to hold regular town halls open to all pic.twitter.com/A0jrRbyFDO

“You are too scared to hold regular town halls open to all,” she added.
Boebert responded: “I notice you took a screenshot of my tweet instead of sharing the original one with the video of you getting completely ripped to shreds by your own constituents. I have governed as I campaigned. You sold out your supporters. Just own it. You’re the machine now.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faced several hecklers during an event in New York City earlier this week.
Video clips of the event and the New York Democrat being brutally heckled over her support for Ukraine in its war against Russia were posted online.
“None of this matters unless there’s a nuclear war, which you voted to send arms and weapons to Ukraine. You ran as an outsider, yet you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine,” one man said.
“You’re voting to start a third nuclear war with Russia and China. Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens? Tulsi Gabbard has shown guts where you’ve shown cowardice!” he added.
“I believed in you, and you became the very thing you sought to fight against. That’s what you’ve become. You are the establishment,” the man said.
My friend @Noggatone and I confronted Congresswoman @AOC on her support for Nuclear War and Ukrainian Nazis. I call her out for being a coward in the face of the party that will push us all into Nuclear war right now. Will she stand up like @TulsiGabbard and fight for peace? pic.twitter.com/aQiQvQSWIN
