Marjorie Taylor Greene Suggests AOC Should Have Thanked Heckler for 'Compliment'

Share

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) reacted to an incident Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) had with a heckler, suggesting she should have thanked him for the “compliment” he gave her.

Greene brought Right-wing instigator Alex Stein on her podcast after the incident.

“You’re a comedian. You’re doing what you do, saying things that are actually quite the compliments,” Greene said.

Stein chimed in, adding, “I was complimenting. She’s Jenny from the block… All I was trying to do is say you look great.”

He claimed he did not mean anything sexual by it.

“I’m just commenting on your beauty. I don’t think that that from me is some sort of negative thing but they live in a society where compliments are bigotry and based in racism and hate,” Stein said.

Greene continued, “I think women should be confident and if a man gives you a compliment, a woman can say thank you. That’s a good thing. Say thank you.”

She argued if Ocasio-Cortez “is going up the stairs and someone’s yelling stuff at her, she can just wave and go on and not go into full outrage.”

Ocasio-Cortez shared a video of the incident on Twitter Thursday, as IJR reported.

“I posted about a deeply disgusting incident that happened today on the Capitol steps, but took it down bc it’s clearly someone seeking extremist fame,” she tweeted.

The congresswoman continued, “It’s just a bummer to work in an institution that openly allowed this, but talking about it only invites more. Just really sad.”

She “was actually walking over to deck him because if no one will protect us then I’ll do it myself but I needed to catch a vote more than a case today.”
