Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently went off the rails and Republicans are more than willing to call her out for it.
AOC has been making numerous tweets in response to Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signing the Human Life Protection Act, which bans abortions, into law.
“Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions a felony punishable w jailtime,incl [sic] women victimized by rape+incest,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
This comment was quickly torn apart online.
“Everything about this tweet by @AOC is false,” read a tweet from Caleb Hull. He went on to explain that women who receive abortions have no repercussions to fear, rather it’s the doctor who faces charges should “they illegally perform abortions.”
The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles agreed with Hull, sharing that what AOC shared “is a lie.”
“Section 5. No woman upon whom an abortion is performed or attempted to be performed shall be criminally or civilly liable. Furthermore, no physician confirming the serious health risk to the child’s mother shall be criminally or civilly liable for those actions,” Knowles posted.
By late evening AOC was still on her kick, spouting that the abortion bans were about “controlling women’s bodies.”
A statement that was also picked apart.
Crumbling under the assault, AOC tried to blame the backlash on Twiiter’s 280-character limit, making it difficult for readers to pick up on “context clues.”
Once again Ryan Saavedra was quick to point out the truth, “Ocasio-Cortez gets caught lying on the Alabama abortion bill, gets embarrassed, then quits debating.”
