WASHINGTON, DC—Over a year after the War of January 6th, US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has issued a statement saying she was “nearly murdered” in a new attack on the Capitol steps.
The incident took place yesterday where a man dressed in “Make America Great Again” hats threw a noose around Ocasio-Cortez’s neck and screamed, “This is MAGA Country!”
Ocasio-Cortez posed the video on Twitter of the harrowing experience:
Ocasio-Cortez was immediately admitted to Walter Reed Hospital with burn wounds and a dangerously inflated ego.
“I heard the people shouting. They were coming after me. They were going to kill me,” Ocasio-Cortez said of the Capitol Steps Attacker, holding back tears.
Ocasio-Cortez said that the attacker was trying to kill her because, “they couldn’t date me.”
