Rep. Ted Yoho has no business in politics and thank God he says he’s not running for reelection And apparently the fact that he’s not seeking another term gives him a right to act like a rabid cur. Yoho accosted Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez on the steps of the House and called her a fucking bitch. This is not how ladies and gentlemen of Congress used to address one another. This is what goes on in Trump world. The Hill: Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) was coming down the steps on the east side of the Capitol on Monday, having just voted, when he approached Ocasio-Cortez, who was ascending into the building to cast a vote of her own. In a brief but heated exchange, which was overheard by a reporter, Yoho told Ocasio-Cortez she was “disgusting” for recently suggesting that poverty and unemployment are driving a spike in crime in New York City during the coronavirus pandemic. “You are out of your freaking mind,” Yoho told her. Ocasio-Cortez shot back, telling Yoho he was being “rude.” The two then parted ways. Ocasio-Cortez headed into the building, while Yoho, joined by Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas), began descending toward the House office buildings. A few steps down, Yoho offered a parting thought to no one in particular. “Fucking bitch,” he said. I never spoke to Rep. Yoho before he decided to accost me on the steps of the nation’s Capitol yesterday. Believe it or not, I usually get along fine w/ my GOP colleagues. We know how to check our legislative sparring at the committee door. But hey, “b*tches” get stuff done. ????????♀️ https://t.co/WlG3xccwR7 — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 21, 2020 Gotta love Republican courage from Rep @RogerWilliamsTX: when he undeniably sees another man engaged in virulent harassment of a young woman, just pretend you never saw it in the most cartoonish manner possible and keep pushing. (He’s lying, by the way. He joined in w/ Yoho) https://t.co/TAjvXBdd9u — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 21, 2020 Republicans are profiles in courage, no question about that. And this was not an isolated incident in Congress today — incredibly. Liz Cheney was attacked by Matt Gaetz, and then the rest of the Forever Trump caucus piled on as well. Things getting HEATED at House GOP conference meeting right now. Matt Gaetz & Thomas Massie both got on the mics and went after Liz Cheney for backing Massie’s primary opponent, per source in the room. — Melanie Zanona (@MZanona) July 21, 2020 Reps. Louie Gohmert & Andy Biggs also got on the mics to defend Massie & express their concerns. Biggs even accused Cheney of undermining their ability to win back the House & said if you don’t have something nice to say about Trump, then don’t say it at all, per source. — Melanie Zanona (@MZanona) July 21, 2020 Now Jim Jordan is laying into Cheney for all the times she has broke with Trump and started listing them off. He said it'd be better if their conference chair helped Trump instead of going after him. — Melanie Zanona (@MZanona) July 21, 2020 Cheney did not back down from confrontation: She defended Fauci. She told Gaetz I look forward to seeing ur HBO doc. She told Massie his issue is w/ Trump, not her. She told Jordan I look forward to hearing ur comments […]
