Ocasio-Cortez Says She’s In ‘Therapy’ Because of Capitol Mayhem, Says Lawmakers ‘Served In War’


Just when we thought New York socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could not stoop any lower, she surprises everyone.

During an interview on Latino USA, Ocasio-Cortez made a series of eyebrow-raising comments about the Jan. 6 mayhem at the U.S. Capitol.

AOC played the victim and said she’s in “therapy” because of the supposed trauma she is still experiencing.

Ocasio-Cortez also said it “had a lot of us, especially Latino communities, in a very reactive mode” and even falsely claimed that the experience meant that she and other lawmakers “served in war.”

“After the 6th, I took some time and it was really Ayanna Pressley when I explained to her what happened to me, like the day of, because I ran to her office and she was like, ‘you need to recognize trauma,’” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“And I feel like I learned this the hard way after my father had passed away when I was a teenager … That happened at a young age and I locked it away. You have to live with it for years,” she added.

“Oh yeah, I’m doing therapy but also I’ve just slowed down,” she said. “I think the Trump administration had a lot of us, especially Latino communities, in a very reactive mode.”

Ocasio-Cortez then turned the conversation to Mike Pence, saying he was removed from the chamber just a minute before “these terrorists, insurrectionists got into the Senate chamber.”

“Pence was the one person, arguably, that had one of the most important roles in making sure that procedurally the Electoral College counts went on as proceeded,” the socialist said.

“Sixty seconds could have meant potentially the difference between what we have right now and a martial state,” she continued. “This was an all-out attempted coup.”

“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,” the radical lawmaker added. “We don’t want to acknowledge that that’s how close we got, but that is how close we got.”
