AOC Pulls Drama Queen Card on 'Arrest' and 'Handcuffs,' Gets Hit With Reality by Nancy Mace

We saw Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) pretending to be handcuffed during a protest outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday. They were not handcuffed despite their playacting which they both proved when they were able to raise their fists in the air.


Some in the media still spread the claim even though Omar visibly raises her fist in the air.

Not only weren’t they handcuffed, but they also weren’t even taken in to be processed. The members of Congress were all assembled nearby the protest area, police took their pictures and checked their IDs. The members of Congress didn’t even have to leave the area. And some even took selfies with the cops. Oh, the humanity!

Talk about cushy treatment for a celebrity “arrest.”

But that didn’t stop AOC and her staff from trumpeting the arrest as though she were heading to Gitmo. Her response to people noting her pretending to be in handcuffs? She claimed it was a Republican conspiracy theory.


No, AOC, it was all you and some of your buddies who thought it would add to the photo op.

She then claimed that she was doing it because that was the best practice when being arrested.

People who identified themselves as police officers then contested that claim on Twitter. What is true is that you should always keep your hands where the police can see them and not make any sudden moves or try to resist.

AOC attacked Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who AOC doesn’t like because Mace pointed out there were no rioters near AOC’s office on Jan. 6, blowing up the image that AOC had been trying to present of what she experienced that day.


The arrest? They were issued a ticket for blocking the street. They have to pay $50 or they can ask for a hearing to contest it.

But here was AOC kvelling about her “arrest paperwork” (the ticket).

If there were an award for a drama queen, AOC definitely would win.

But Mace laid her out. Again.
