Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York suggested that Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado should leave Congress.
bobert tweeted on Wednesday: “You can’t put away evil.” Her tweet came after Tuesday’s deadly mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
“Why even be in Congress if you don’t believe in doing your job?” Ocasio Cortez tweeted in response to her GOP colleague’s post. “Just quit and let someone who really doesn’t care do it instead of acting like a useless piece of furniture when babies are being shot with AR15 bombs that we teens impulsively have bought before they can legally have a beer. “
bobert answered to Ocasio-Cortez: “Ms. Defund the police, gun-free zones have proven deadly. Let me know when you are ready to do your job and effectively protect our schools with armed security forces. Let’s meet and solve the problem.”
Fox News’ Bill Melugin reported that Texas DPS informed him that “there was indeed a school police officer on the Robb Elementary campus who exchanged gunfire with the shooter and the officer was shot and injured. That’s when the gunman ran into the school and barricaded himself in a classroom & started killing.” Melugin continued“Furthermore, TX DPS tells me that three local officers were injured in the shooting, and as a result of the shooting with the school officer, the shooter dropped a bag of ammunition that he was unable to get inside.” A Zavala County assemblyman responded engaged & had a weapon malfunction.”
Last year, Ocasio-Cortez spoke about a Christmas photo that showed Boebert’s sons each holding a gun.
“Tell me again where Christ said, ‘Are you using the commemoration of my birth to use violent weapons for personal political gain’?” Ocasio-Cortez tweetedAdding, “lol @ all those years Republicans spent with society’s cultural hysteria ‘erasing Christmas and its meaning’ when they’re doing it so well all by themselves.”
bobert answered“@AOC is using her position as a congresswoman to attack my boys with their Christmas presents. Doesn’t look good, Sandy…”
Ocasio-Cortez was among those who pounced on Republican Senator Ted Cruz Tuesday after the senator noted he and his wife were praying for children and families following the shooting.
“Heidi and I pray fervently for the children and families involved in the horrific shooting in Uvalde. We are in close contact with local officials but the exact details are yet to be revealed. Thank you to the heroic law enforcement and first responders who acted so quickly,” Cruz said tweeted.
“Don’t you want to be conducting a speaking engagement for the NRA in three days — in Houston, no less? You can do more than pray. Faith without works is dead,” said Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in reply to Cruz.
