AOC Pounds Table Like a Petulant Child

Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chastised Republican Rep. Clay Higgins for his rude treatment of a female witness during a climate hearing Thursday.

AOC accused the Louisiana congressman and other GOPers on the House Oversight Committee of disrespecting Raya Salter, a lawyer and clean energy advocate, during her testimony on corporations and climate change.

Higgins and Salter got into a tense, and times, shouting exchange. At one point, Higgins even called Salter “boo” as he pushed her to answer his question.

“Frankly men who treat women like that in public, I fear how they treat them in private,” Ocasio-Cortez said as she pounded her fist on the dais. “We can be better than this, we don’t have to resort to yelling.”

Ocasio-Cortez, who reps Queens and the Bronx, later expressed regret on behalf of the committee.

“I would hope that someone would issue you an apology, but because I don’t believe (Higgins) will, I want to apologize to you about the conduct of this committee,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Higgins, who’s been in office since 2017, earlier asked Salter what she would do with all the material items she has from petrochemical products.

Salter then implored Higgins to “search your heart and understand why the EPA knows that toxic petrochemical facilities are some of the most toxic polluting facilities in the world and are killing black people throughout Louisiana.”

“My good lady, I’m trying to give you the floor, boo,” Higgins told Salter, who is also a law professor and member of the New York State Climate Action Council.

The two raised their voices at each other during the hearing that focused on the oil and gas companies’ contribution to climate change.

Salter again encouraged Higgins to search his heart and “ask your God what you are doing to the black and poor people in Louisiana.”

He also called Salter “young lady” and told her she has “a lot of noise, but you got no answers.”

Ocasio-Cortez said Higgins’ behavior is something she hadn’t previously seen since she began on the House Oversight committee four years ago.

“I do not care what party they are in,” AOC said. “I’ve never seen anything like that.”

  1. This twit, has done nothing in Congress except start trouble, and make asinine statements, that everyone can dispute! She is supposed to be a college educated person, but most of what she blathers on about, makes absolutely no sense! She is a dolt, and should be removed from office!!!

  2. Racist and fascists go to any e themes to disrespect Black and Brown women.Particularly when they are educated and have more sense and moral than white Congress people.

  3. im down for equal rights. but aoc and her version of women’s rights. no. hell no. and she accuses implied this man of spousal abuse? then has the arrogance to apoligise for what a presumptive asshole. further as we dont have the actual discussion that prompted this rant i will bet the one being yelled at is another idiot who deserved to be yelled at.

  4. It’s always the same with these liberals. They use the race card to try to intimidate, but have no real answers. Then when are able to sue and get money, where does the money go??? Directly in their pockets and none to the so called victims. They manage to hurt(kill) the people they are saying they are helping. Just look at Black Lives Matter. How many innocent black children were killed during their riots??? Also how many of them were convicted and gone to jail??? It’s all bullshit. Occasionally has A Brain (AOC). Is just one of most stupid idiots to get into congress. Hispanic voted this stupid bitch in just because she is Hispanic . No other reason. Remember she was a waitress before. So what does that tell you???

    • she was supported and put into position by The Young Turks founder. Cenk Uygur. He supports putting new people in that will bend to the far left will. As many as they could fine. AOC said she never even considered politics until her brother told her she could be a mouth piece. $174,000 a year sparked that greed she thought she never had. equality? what a joke.

  5. Anytime any conservative asks a Nazicrat a reasonable common sense question that shows just how insane their ideologies are, they attack the person with ridiculous personal remarks. Such as, you’re a sexist, racist, bigot! This is to scare off the question the person wants answered. In reality, the radical left cannot answer the question because the American people will not approve..

    I think most reasonable Americans have figured out the Nazicrat people, who support the “Liberal New Order,” pretty much use their same old tactics that use to work for them, which is accuse the opposition party of what their radical party is actually doing!!! It’s the old idea of don’t look at what we’re doing or want to do and look way over here you bigoted racist. That doesn’t work anymore…,

    The anti-American, radical Nazicrats can’t explain away how bad ALL of their failed policies are doing. Attack on energy making gas over twice what it should cost; inflation costing EVERYTHING to cost more; Open borders, allowing illegal immigrants, terrorists, gang members, and drugs to overthrow our border in record numbers; Defund and attacks on law enforcement, treating criminals as victims and no bail allowing bad guys to do no jail time; Attacks on 1st, 2nd, and 4th amendments of the Constitution; Disarming law abiding American citizens; Printing and spending money we do not have causing a recession; Creating voting laws that makes it easier for Nazicrats to cheat and steal elections…..I can go on and on! Democrats can’t cover that up.

  6. She pounds on table , Beto stands on tables
    What is it about tables?
    Biden hides in basement
    And Nancy eats ice cream
    They all have their so important

  7. Where the hell do these petulant women come from? From Liz Chainme, to Hillaryous, to Peelousy, to AOC can you see? Why don’t they go live in another country like China or Afghanistan and see how they get treated there. So silly are they.

  8. Hopefully, she will soon be taken out of office and become just another embarrassing incident of past politics. AOC is a racist in that she constantly makes claims of injustice due to the ethnicities of people she supports while ignoring those of the same ethnicities who oppose her. She is sexist in the fact that she blames there not being a female president on American citizens hating women. She is too hostile to too many of US to be relevant to any of US.
