Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday utilized Twitter to call out the hypocrisy of Republicans who “stalk my livestreams” on social media and “obsess over any & every word.”
“Meanwhile, many GOP electeds hide from constituents & avoid town halls,” the congresswoman composed. “Maybe that’s why they’re so preoccupied w/mine.”
I discover it entertaining that GOPers stalk my livestreams to consume over any & every word, bc I’m * really readily available * to constituent Qs at 10 pm after a long day.
On the other hand, lots of GOP electeds conceal from constituents & prevent city center. Perhaps that’s why they’re so preoccupied w/ mine ♀

Ocasio-Cortez frequently takes concerns from constituents by means of live sessions on Instagram. She was most likely reacting to criticism she gathered from some conservatives after stating in a broadcast Tuesday that individuals weren’t going to Chinese and asian dining establishments in the U.S. “because of just straight-up racism” around the coronavirus, that came from China.
“Honestly, it sounds almost so silly to say, but there’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism,” she stated. The section was later on magnified by a press reporter for the conservative website, The Daily Wire.
