AOC Under Fire for Remark About Gas Stoves Amid Reports of Possible Ban on Appliance


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) sparked backlash after making a comment about gas stoves amid reports of agencies considering a ban on the appliance.

Ocasio-Cortez reacted to a tweet posted by Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) reacting to the reports of a possible ban.

“I’ll NEVER give up my gas stove. If the maniacs in the White House come for my stove, they can pry it from my cold dead hands. COME AND TAKE IT!!” Jackson wrote.

Ocasio-Cortez reacted, saying, “Did you know that ongoing exposure to NO2 from gas stoves is linked to reduced cognitive performance.”

Twitter users were quick to call Ocasio-Cortez out.

Radio host Erick Erickson tweeted, “It’s always funny when they rush to defend a policy, then the Biden Administration pulls the rug out from other them and walks it all back. Also, she has a gas stove herself.”

Another user wrote, “Don’t ever listen to these people about liberty again. They literally want to tell you how you’re allowed to cook your food. FOR THE WEATHER.”

Ian Miles Cheong joked, “That would explain your intellectual deficiency.”

Writer Cassandra MacDonald mocked Ocasio-Cortez, saying, “Remember when she didnt know what a garbage disposal was? Now she is a sudden expert on household appliances lol.”

Earlier this week, it was reported the Biden administration is considering a ban on gas stoves over concerns about health and respiratory issues.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced it was planning to take action to address what the agency says are harmful air pollutants that are emitted by the stoves indoors.

“This is a hidden hazard,” Richard Trumka Jr., a commissioner for the agency, said.

He added, “Any option is on the table. Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.”
