when she thought Ted Cruz sent rioters to kill her FEB. 3, 2021 2:20 PM BY THE RIGHT SCOOP
It was revealed by Nick Arama at Redstate this morning that AOC wasn’t actually in the Capitol building when she hid in her bathroom because Ted Cruz sent rioters were going to kill her or something:
But a few important things to note that seem to have been left out of this whole story. AOC wasn’t even in the Capitol building where all the action was going down. If she was in her office, she was in the Cannon Building which is nearby, but a different building. But of course, many didn’t get the logistics and just assumed that she was in the Capitol building. According to Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who has an office in the same hall as AOC, two doors away, there were never any rioters in their hall so there was never any physical danger from rioters coming in at any point.
I don’t know about you, but it sure sounded to me like AOC was suggesting she was in the Capitol building where the riot was taking place.
Jack Posobiec posted a map showing where AOC’s office was in relation to the Capitol Building:
AOC has since attacked the article as ‘manipulative’ and now says she was on the ‘Capitol Complex’:
The bombs surrounded her office building? Um that’s a streeeeetch. The bombs that were found were planted at both the headquarters of the DNC and RNC, which are outside of the Capitol complex but very close to it. They weren’t ‘surrounding’ the office building.
It’s already been reported that what AOC said she thought was a rioter Ted Cruz sent to kill her was really a Capitol police officer there to protect her. But that didn’t stop her from denigrating the officer:
As it turns out, however, as my colleague Bonchie reported earlier, AOC said in her Instagram drama that the person who came to her office was a Capitol Police officer. But she denigrated the officer who came to help, claiming he “didn’t feel right” and that he was looking at her “in all of this anger and hostility.” Her staffer reportedly wondered if he would have to fight the officer and suggested that he might put them in a “vulnerable situation.”
Cop was probably in a panic trying to ensure that Congress members were safe. AOC overreacted to his demeanor and now denigrates him as if he may have been trying to do her harm. Ridiculous.
I don’t find it hard to believe that AOC was worried that a rioter might have come to her office, but once she found out it was a cop, she should have adjusted and realized she had just overreacted. Instead it feels like she’s trying to milk this incident for every bit of sympathy she can get.
