Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shares her ideal 'Game of Thrones' outcome

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shares her ideal 'Game of Thrones' outcome

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., says there are health risks associated with Facebook and that's why she's made a decision to stop using her account.

"I actually think that social media poses a public health risk to everybody", she said.

However, she said on the podcast, she's trying to cut back.

Ocasio-Cortez said there were "many ways" to respond to Netanyahu's pledge and protect Palestinian rights, including through supporting a bill that would force the USA secretary of state to certify that U.S. taxpayer funds were not being used on the Israeli detention of Palestinian children in the West Bank. "I think that Netanyahu is a Trump-like figure".

Tlaib famously said shortly after being sworn in as a congresswoman that "we're going to impeach the motherfucker".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may seem undefeated when it comes to laying waste to trolls on Twitter.

'I don't think any president of the United States should use the tragedy of 9/11 as a political tool, ' Pelosi said.

In a letter hand-delivered to Ocasio-Cortez's office Friday, Republican Rep. Andy Barr of Kentucky told the congresswoman he "was greatly trouble to hear of your comments about our colleague and patriot to our country". "I grew up with that Yankees dream team, like, [Derek] Jeter, [Jorge] Posada, like, Mariano Rivera", she said.

Ocasio-Cortez told Yahoo News that she writes her own tweets and creates her own Instagram posts, saying that she tries to participate on social media "both as a person with a larger audience but also as an individual user of these platforms".

After Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, a former Navy SEAL, responded to Omar's comments, calling them "unbelievable", Ocasio-Cortez attacked him on Twitter. She said later in March that "I think what's tough is impeachment is something that I openly support, but it's also just the reality of having votes in the Senate to pursue that".

Though other progressives like New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio have had frosty relationships with Wall Street, Ocasio-Cortez has chosen to have no relationship at all, Fox Business reported - and she might be the only high-profile local elected official to refuse meetings with the banks.
