I couldn’t get through it, but I understand that, in it, the Juvenile Drama Queen recounts her allegedly terrifying experience (cue tears) on January 6th when horrible, violent people sent by Ted Cruz made her fear for her life!
Reality check … AOC was in her office during the riot. Her office is in the Cannon Building which folks who know the area say is a six minute walk away from the Capitol Building. See map. The closest she got to the violence was when a cop stopped by her office to do a welfare check.
She was predictably pissed when her latest Big Fat Lie was ridiculed. She tweeted in high dudgeon, “This is the latest manipulative take on the right. They are manipulating the fact that most people don’t know the layout the Capitol complex. We were all on the Capitol complex – the attack wasn’t just on the dome. The bombs Trump supporters planted surrounded our offices too.”
People who have or do work on the Hill responded that the reason folks are sneering is that they DO know the layout of the Capitol complex.
But let’s just parse that last line that I bolded.
First, there were two small pipe bombs found on January 6. One was near the RNC headquarters, while the other was at the DNC headquarters. Again, see the map. That doesn’t qualify as “surrounding” the Cannon Building where “our offices” are.
Second, they were found around noon and rendered safe. I couldn’t find any report about how potentially deadly the devices may have been, but I also found no evidence that anyone was evacuated from the areas where they were found.
Third, the earliest news report I could find of their discovery was after 10 pm on January 6.
Fourth, investigators have now determined that a single man, whose identity is as yet unknown, planted the two bombs the night before the riot. There is a large reward being offered for his identity.
IOW, the two bombs were rendered safe and removed long before AOC had any reason to know they ever existed and there is zero evidence they were planted by a Trump supporter.
Tweeted by Jesse Kelly: “Michael Brown was a gentle giant with his hands up like David Hogg survived a school shooting like Christine Blasey Ford got assaulted by Kavanaugh like AOC almost died at the Capitol. Sensing a pattern? They lie. Stop believing anything these people say.”
