Before the vote to remove U.S. House Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, U.S. House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC)(D-NY) brought vitriol to the house floor.
Conservative commentator Monica Crowley shared a clip from the house floor of AOC having herself a little meltdown. In the final part of her tirade, AOC brings up that U.S. House Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene had once made a comment about “Jewish Space Lasers” causing forest fires.
AOC claimed to remove Omar is about targeting “women of color”.
“Communists never go off script and they always put on a good show *eye roll*”

AOC started her tantrum by going on about the targeting of Muslim Americans since 9/11, Omar is a Muslim. She then accused the GOP of consistent racist attacks on women of color. ACO waving her arms shouted, “I had a member of the Republican caucus threaten my life and the Republican caucus rewarded him with one of the most prestigious committee assignments in this Congress.”
She referenced a video that was shared by U.S. House Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) which depicted AOC being defeated in a battle, this video was removed by Gosar after complaints were made that it was threatening to her. She states that he was been rewarded “with one of the most prestigious committee assignments in this Congress.”
At the end of her speech, she brings up that she didn’t get “a single apology” for the video she claimed was a threat.
Throughout the video, you can see U.S. House Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) behind her shaking her head in agreement nodding, and smiling
