Ocasio-Cortez Actually Compared Ben Shapiro’s Challenge to ‘Catcalling’


Democratic socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is running for a House district seat in New York, has been a lightening rod in American politics since her candidacy first took off. (Time will tell whether she’s a flash in the pan or not.)

The tweet skyrocketed by Thursday night, garnering over a 118,000 “likes” within 12 hours.

It’s obvious why: She drew an unflattering analogy to being tweeted.

Liz Wheeler, a One America News host, fired back:
