BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is facing criticism over initial claims she made about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, with many noting that she wasn’t even in the Capitol when it occurred.
The controversy erupted after the New York congresswoman posted a video in which she described a confrontation with Capitol Police at her office, which is located on the larger Capitol complex. But it is not in the Capitol itself — which includes the dome, the House, and the Senate — and was where many rioters stormed in and were seen breaking windows.
Ocasio-Cortez explained the discrepancy. “Apparently my critics know nothing about teleportation,” stated the Congresswoman. “They have no idea how it works. If they spent more of their time watching the Sci-Fi Channel instead of the news, they wouldn’t doubt how I appeared in the Capitol for one second, and then vanished into thin air when I saw trouble brewing.”
