Rep. Nancy Mace on AOC: “She’s Lost it, She Doesn’t Deal in Reality”


Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has clearly lost her mind, or what was left of it.

Since the events of the Capital riot on January 6th, AOC has continually changed her story of what she experienced that day.

She has exaggerated events, and even falsely accused Ted Cruz of attempting to have her murdered.

It’s clear to see that she is starved for attention, and obsessed with being a victim.

Other politicians are calling AOC out for refusing to deal in reality.

Republican congresswoman Nancy Mace doubled down on her own criticizm of AOC, saying this:

“She’s lost it today, she doesn’t deal in reality.”

Mace also pointed out that AOC has been very dishonest with the American people and that dishonesty is only causing more division which hurts the country.

Fox News has more on AOC's original claims:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is facing criticism over initial claims she made about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, with many noting that she wasn't even in the Capitol when it occurred.

The controversy erupted after the New York congresswoman posted a video in which she described a confrontation with Capitol Police at her office, which is located on the larger Capitol complex. But it is not in the Capitol itself — which includes the dome, the House, and the Senate — and was where many rioters stormed in and were seen breaking windows.

Her office is located in the Cannon building, which is accessible through underground tunnels connected to the Capitol as well as via a short stroll down a walkway and across the street. It was also one of the buildings where staff was told to evacuate after suspicious packages were found in the area. Law enforcement found pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails in the vicinity.

In response to the incident, the congresswoman said: "I did not know if I was going to make it to the end of that day alive." She also accused Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, of almost having her "murdered," touching on accusations that Cruz and others incited the attack through their rhetoric about the election.

"I can tell you that I had a very close encounter where I thought I was going to die," she said in a video last month.

In her more recent video, she offered an emotional recollection of how she hid behind a bathroom door and heard the police officer break into her office.

"I thought I was going to die," she said, noting that she didn't initially realize the person trying to enter her office was police. "I have never been quieter in my entire life."

She added that the situation "didn't feel right because he was looking at me with a tremendous amount of anger and hostility -- and things weren't adding up. There was no partner there and no one was yelling, he wasn't yelling like, 'this is Capitol Police, this is Capitol Police.'"

Rep. Nancy Mace sets the facts straight on what happened on Jan 6

Mace's comments followed AOC's dramatic and emotional accounting of the events in an Instagram video.

Here's what Rep. Mace had to say last Wenesday.

According to Mace, AOC's exaggerative tales only serve to "water down everyone's trauma."

Here's the New York Post with more:

“When you exaggerate it, or are dishonest about how you represent what happened, it waters down everyone else’s trauma,” Mace added.

Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) detailed her experience of the encounter during an Instagram Live stream this week.

After the video aired, Mace (R-SC) tweeted, “My office is 2 doors down. Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway.”

Ocasio-Cortez said a Capitol Police officer barged into her office without identifying himself, which made her fear for her life.

Mace claimed that statement was disparaging to law enforcement.

“So we have to be very clear and not exaggerate this experience or take advantage and politicize it,” Mace explained.

AOC can only keep playing the victim card for so long before everyone else gets fed up..

Of course, AOC just got some more backup for her "victim army."
