Gee, don’t you feel bad for her?
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), known as AOC, posted a video describing how she felt during the breach of the Capitol on January 6. She thought she would be murdered. She hid in a bathroom, terrified. Her video has been viewed more than six million times.
There’s just one problem. She wasn’t there.
As self-described, AOC was in her office, which is not in the Capitol, it’s in the nearby Cannon 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.
But hey, the video makes you famous.
