    Republicans Christian values for you people.

    Yoho chased her down to insult her. He pretty much stalked her.. Donald Trump made this kind of behavior acceptable when he stalked Hilary Clinton on stage during one of the debates. I am not a Hilary fan, but even I saw how intimidating that could be.

    He pretty much telling her what faux news says about her. You can tell what he watches. I’m sure if you do some digging into the previous nights opinion shows on faux that you will be able to see clear as day that he will be repeating the thoughts the hosts had of a duly elected congresswoman that they like to demonize. But ask them what they think of tRump, the sexual assaulting narcissist who took his own daughters virginity ( ivanka) and not a peep. And if he hasn’t well he sure has displayed and verbally acknowledged such thoughts.

    Not that she is telling the truth for once but !
    She knew when she took the job that she was gonna have to put on her Big Girl Panties !
    I mean like most of us worked 45 years or more at places where if we weren’t cussed at almost hourly then we would think that we were in some kind of Utopia.
    My god tell me where you can work where there is no strife and human conflict,seriously they are few and very far between in the real world.
    P.S.@AOC, And as soon as you get the opportunity will you please trim the beards under your arms !!? Thanks hun !

    Aoc is female, non white, non republican, works for the people and not the lobbyists, basically everything Republicans hate.

    • Bartolome Esteban Murillo Reply

      LOL. AOC cost her district 25K jobs by driving out Amazon.

    • MrMoss786 Reply

      @Bartolome Esteban Murillo its not that simple. Big corporations use this job creation as a means to negotiate until it becomes a loss to host them. Bezos is not stupid but he’s ruthless. It took legislation from Bernie sanders to get him to increase his minimum wage to something decent.
      Another example is glencore in Zambia with regards to copper mining there. Watch the documentary, you’ll understand.

  6. VLADIMIR TROTSKY Reply

    Just more noise from the radical leftists amounting to no more than hearsay and conjecture on her part .
    As a shill and a DNC/Soros/ANTIFA puppet that is seeking an uphill re-election, this very unpopular communist is looking for all of the attention that she can summon.
    Her reputation ever pending,there won’t be many taking what she said very seriously as she has been harping and griping since she cheated her way into the winners box.
    So when she suddenly comes forward with these outlandish claims about a fellow politician who is beyond reproach then everyone is naturally going to roll their eyes knowing her past phony ranting!

  7. Mike Fas Reply

    Yoho was probably a name change from Yahoo. See its definition. He is
    such a little spineless weasel that he did not even really apologize but
    was basically sorry that he was heard by the press. I wonder if when he
    retires he will get his spine installed back, which most Republicans
    had removed years ago so they could kiss some orange rear.

    His jealous can’t except that a Latina is in the Senate,

  10. TWS Van Reply

    poor AOC, called a bad name and criticized for being a poor example of a congresswoman!

  11. Wild Weasel Reply

    Why waste time and airspace to air anything this George Soros funded Marxist has to say. If this is the best New York has to offer I feel sorry for them. Come election time you fokks have a chance to elect a real American.

  12. MARK H Reply

    So this is how we make America great again treat women like c*** I don’t think so anybody did that to my wife or daughter would regret it and I feel bad if you have a daughter and wife and think this is OK your sick

    You can hear Trump at 1:22 warning her Hey, and she acknowledges the President and then he says 1:35 She Just Won’t Go Home and then she speeds it up.

  19. Why Soitanly Reply

    Yoho is a real a**-ho… I don’t like AOC that much either, but she showed she has more cojones than Yoho does. Republicans are beginning to hemorrhage as Trump’s “administration” circles the drain.

    Where is the evidence that this even
    happened?

  34. YONATAN C Reply

    Liberal news is destroying our country, and purposely misleading the nation with half truths and complete lies to gain support for their democratic candidate Joe Biden. What’s happening to our country?? We’ve got radical socialist democrats trying to destroy our country from within. They have encouraged riots and destruction of private property, and have burned down churches, and have taken down a statue of Jesus, because they want to take religion out of society. They want to police out thoughts and opinions, and tell us what to think and do. Democratic candidate Joe Biden, actually said to the African American community , that if we don’t vote for them, then we ain’t black. That’s the party that has taken us for granted, as if we are somehow beholding to them, for our own lives. This is a party with a slavery past. Check it out for yourselves and you will see the roots of this political party. They’re not for us, they simply need our vote. That’s where their solidarity ends. The Democratic Party has even put illegal aliens rights and concerns, before African American citizens born in this country. Their party has moved so far to the left, there’s no more place to go, but socialism. To the Democratic Party, NO LIVES MATTER, more than THEIR OWN selfish ambitions. The Democratic party is ANTI-RELIGION, ANTI-FREEDOM OF SPEECH, and ANTI-AMERICAN. They will never have my vote again.

  41. montacap Reply

    Some part of me felt a little bit like I was listening to the description of a elementary school bullying moment.Which maybe if we took those things more seriously at that age we wouldn’t have much more serious situations later. But these are grown adults and that makes it even more disturbing.

  42. M N Reply

    What a f.ing piece of sh*t that man! I wonder if he would’ve been so bold and daring to harass and insult a man that way. I think the outcome would have been a much different one.

    AOC and other millennials have to stop becoming so offended when they are addressed with same or similar harsh or vitriol language they themselves use towards others when their opinions and beliefs are opposed or challenged. She’s like the little kid in school who constantly calls others ugly names, then runs to the teacher crying when another kid finally stands up to them and returns with the same.. This is typical millennial behavior.

    I am 68..old and white and I am from Florida. I am also head over heels about AOC.

    If Yaho is father of two, he should take the responsibility and step down.. Lawmakers are responsible for policy making and not for name calling.. We need to elect respectable representative who can take responsibility for their actions..

  59. tonyface2007 Reply

    Lawrence O’Donnell summarised Yoho, perfectly another Republican hypocrite, crying for himself, remembering when he was poor, and lived on food stamps, but now want to deny them to poor people. How many people make the journey from food stamps to Congressman who gets rich on bribes. Yet that is there model for success, and there are so many Republican voters who fall for that, if only the Federal Govt would get out f my way I too can be a crook like Trump or Yoho.

They are NOTHING BUT HYPOCRITES! God help us!!! This has been going on for CENTURIES. Remember the KKK in how they abused people, then turned around and used the name of MY SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. What a shame! No one told him to apologize for Loving or denouncing GOD!

  95. Prophecies Of The End Times Reply

    AOC did the classic thing all empaths do..if he said “That’s disgusting,” referring to her platform, she literally interpreted that as she’s disgusting. However, what’s more “disgusting” is claiming your a victim, when you are part of a squad that endorses “Impeaching the Mother F*****”…I rest my case.

  96. K A Reply

    Symbolic. Yoho ( and Williams ) were descending. AOC was ascending. She can go nowhere but up from here. All the way up to being POTUS one day. She’s powerful. She’s fearless. She’s empathetic. She’s a natural leader. Poor men are jealous of her young and fast ascent. Resort to dirty tactics to call her names.
