Media has been spinning like mad to cover Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s meltdown when it was clarified for the public that she wasn’t in the Capitol building at the time all the action went down on Jan. 6.
When she told of her ‘near death’ experience of being scared by a policeman knocking on her door, she was actually in the Cannon House Office building, almost half a mile away. Also the incident happened around 1:00, about an hour before the Capitol was breached and before there had been any real rioting. There has been no evidence that rioters ever got near her or breached her building. AOC flipped out when Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) stated the simple truth that there were no rioters in their mutual hallway. Mace’s office was two doors away from that of AOC.
AOC even sent her flying monkey brigade of trolls to mass report to Facebook and Twitter any posts or tweets that criticized her or spread “disinformation” (translation: clarified where she was and when it was).
As we reported, she had CNN’s Jake Tapper attacking Mace on her behalf accusing Mace of lying when it was AOC spinning whoppers.
Of course, she also had the assistance of CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo to justify and say how could any one be questioning what she was feeling?
Cuomo, likening it to when he once wrongly he thought he was under fire in Iraq, says “It doesn’t have to be real, the threat, for you to believe it’s imminent”

“I don’t understand how this is a story. How is she supposed to know who was on the other side of the door? How is she supposed to know how many people were on the other side of the door? This has nothing to do with anything AOC or whatever, but I kept trying to figure out how the people that were actually involved in that siege, and all the chaos, could be criticizing someone else who was involved in it,” Lemon said.
“She was explaining how, what she thought was going on in her particular situation.”
Lemon called it “partisanship” and Cuomo claimed the criticism of AOC was because of the Democrats going after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). “I lived a situation like that and it doesn’t have to be real, the threat, for you to believe it’s imminent,” Cuomo said. Lemon agreed, “It’s what you believe.”
Wow, doesn’t that just tell you everything. And how true that is because it’s all about emotions and feelings, not facts and reality.
So let’s review. It doesn’t matter if there was no actual threat and that nothing had actually happened yet at that time. It doesn’t matter if she then attacked people for pointing out the truth like RedState or Nancy Mace. It doesn’t matter that she then said that the reason she was evacuated was because people were trying to get into office buildings when it was because of a bomb threat and not because as she suggested people were trying to get in. It doesn’t matter if she falsely accuses Trump supporters of planting bombs. It doesn’t matter if she attacks the GOP and blames them for it all when one of the bombs was planted at the RNC. It doesn’t matter that she must be a time traveler to impute all the riot information to an hour before it happened. It doesn’t matter that she accused Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) of trying to have her murdered. Because it isn’t important if it’s real or an actual threat, it’s what you believe.
So why is Marjorie Taylor Greene no longer on her committees? How can you attack her? Isn’t that just “what she believes?”
