‘I’ll Call Your Bluff’: Ocasio-Cortez Responds After Trump Says He Agrees With Her

President Donald Trump used a recent quote from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to help his case against impeachment. Now, the New York congresswoman is setting the record straight.

Ocasio-Cortez made the quoted comments on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday morning, saying she was worried about Democrats’ chances of taking back the presidency.

“I agree,” Trump tweeted Sunday with the congresswoman’s quote, “and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used!”

Except that Ocasio-Cortez feels the exact opposite. In fact, in the very same Sunday morning interview, she argued for impeachment.

The Twitter-savvy congresswoman called out the president for his selective quoting.

“Mr. President, you’re from Queens. You may fool the rest of the country, but I’ll call your bluff any day of the week,” she wrote Sunday.

“Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do when the President obstructs justice, advises witnesses to ignore legal subpoenas, & more. Bye.”

Ocasio-Cortez isn’t alone in her opinion. The most recent count by The Washington Post shows that 67 Democrats and one Republican — Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) — in the House have expressed they want to at least open up an impeachment inquiry.

  1. It’s a good thing Socialist Barbie is going to be a one-term wonder.

    I say she must, should push for impeachment, along with all her bobblehead cohort. It’ll be worth the laughs.

    1. Maybe not only for the laughs; but for the possibility of a historic landslide for Trump in 2020. I say the Dems should proceed at full break neck speed (towards their demise).

      1. You are confused, James.

        Even King Donald The Loser’s own internal poll numbers point to him being in trouble. He has alienated and attacked nearly every demographic or interest group going for about 3 years. That won’t pay dividendsb except with his 30% cult following. That is no way to win an election and he doesn’t care. All the King is interested in is campaigning – the show of it.

        1. First there is no cult following him we are voters just like you we have a right to vote for who we want just like you so if we are cults what does that make a idiot democrat who believes the lies that democrats are spreading that everything they want to do is free which one they can’t do without congress and senate two some of the things like over taxing the rich taking their money and business is illegal can’t be done so they will tax all Americans high taxes

          1. Bonnie, the “cult” label is classic Leftist projection of their own failures to live up to the “values” they espouse.

            Here are some of the lies/hypocrisy of all the Leftist plans for redistributing wealth:

            Were any TRULY committed, then why are they still wealthy? Whyd does Bernie still have three homes?

            We’re all going to sweat to death. q.v. the multiple homes, private jets, etc. so many global warming cultists still use. I’m looking at you Al Gore, Leo DiCaprio, etc.

            Why don’t THEY pay for the programs they espouse? Sponsor a family of illegal immigrants. Pay for someone’s child murder, err, abortion. Send your damn kids to public schools/non-Ivy League colleges? No?

            It’s always easier paying lip service and with other people’s money.

        2. Genital, you’re so confused (and limited in thought as usual).

          Your continued lies about military service aside, the MOST IMPORTANT group Trump has not “alienated and attacked” is Americans. Remember us? Or are you a separate entity/Russian bot?

          Trump doesn’t have a cult. That was The Lightbringer™ and, somewhat, Hillary.

          Hitler/King/dictator, etc. Your ilk is SOOO f’ing stupid AND limited in imagination. Also the use of words.

          Does the fact that the Dims still exist, you aren’t imprisoned/executed/visited by agents tell you you’re lying/delusional? How ’bout the MSM? Obozo was the one who launched attacks by the FBI on the Associated Press, James Rosen, Sheryl Atkisson, etc.

    2. Yes so we don’t have to listen about it anymore
