Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Harasses Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Asking Why She Supports ‘Terrorists’
The Democratic congresswoman was leaving House chamber Wednesday afternoon when Greene tried to get her attention by shouting, “Hey Alexandria.”
Greene, screaming, asked Ocasio-Cortez why she supports Antifa, a left-wing activist movement, and Black Lives Matter, which she referred to as “terrorist” groups.
Ocasio-Cortez did not respond to Greene, but only dismissed her comments by throwing hands in the air.
“She’s a chicken. She doesn’t want to debate. I don’t think the debate has been agreed to yet,” Greene told reporters who witnessed the scene.
Following the incident, Greene continued to criticize Ocasio-Cortez on social media.
“I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC to plan our debate about the Green New Deal,” Greene Tweeted.
“After I finish reading all 14 pages, like we agreed, I’ll schedule time for our debate.”
I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC to plan our debate about the Green New Deal.

Ocasio-Cortez did not immediately respond, but her spokesperson Lauren Hitt later told The Washington Post that the leadership should take actions “to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff.”
