"I think so", Ocasio-Cortez responded.
Ocasio-Cortez's voice then dropped to a whisper.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen.
"So here you go, you guys are breaking news".
Ocasio-Cortez suggested her opponents "get back to policy" after Omar recently told a Los Angeles gathering of the Council on American-Islamic Relations that 9/11 was an event where "some people did something".
The youngest woman ever elected to Congress was a guest on Yahoo's "Skullduggery" podcast, where she recounted the February release of her far-reaching, intersectional effort to combat climate change, which has an estimated price tag of $94 trillion.
When asked if she supports curtailing military or economic aid to Israel, AOC said, "I think it's certainly on the table", adding, "I hope to play a facilitating role in this conversation and a supportive role in this conversation".
The Democratic party has left itself open to criticism in recent months that it is becoming anti-Israel due largely to controversial statements from its freshman class, particularly Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who has made remarks borrowing from classic anti-Semitic tropes.
Much of the investigation into alleged Russian election meddling and related matters, Ocasio-Cortez said, "comes down to Emoluments". "And I said don't talk like the Founding Fathers on Twitter".
In Omar's full quote, she said: 'Far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen, and frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it. In June of a year ago, ahead of her November election victory, Ocasio-Cortez said she would support impeaching Trump. He urged her to apologize before visiting Kentucky, which would be "a step toward restoring a culture of respect among Members of the U.S. House of Representatives - a culture I hold in high esteem". "I gave up on it", Ocasio-Cortez said to Yahoo News.
The Congresswoman admitted this had "muddied" her message.
More specifically, host Tucker Carlson called her an "idiot wind bag", a "pompous little twit", a "garden-variety hypocrite", "self-involved and dumb", a "moron, and nasty and more self-righteous than any televangelist".
