Democrat firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been known to put her foot in her mouth.
And she’s done it again.
But she should have looked before she leapt into this fight with this rising star in the GOP.
In the heated arena of Capitol Hill, the battle for the Speakership escalated into a high-stakes power struggle.
Many Americans watched the spectacle unfold with bated breath, wondering who would emerge as the party’s champion.
With tensions running high, it’s no surprise that there were some clashes.
Representative Byron Donalds, a Florida Republican, recently delivered a scathing response to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s unwarranted criticism when he briefly threw his name in the ring.
AOC took aim at Donalds on Sunday, arguing that the fact that he’s only served one term in the House makes him an unfit candidate for Speaker.
“I think it helps to know where all the bathrooms are before you run for the U.S. House of Representatives, personally, and I think it helps to have some real experience in one of most complex legislative bodies in the world before you try to run it,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
With a resume boasting two decades in the financial industry, four years in the Florida legislature, and significant achievements in Congress, Donalds boldly challenged Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks.
He questioned her understanding of the intricate legislative processes, asserting that her critique showcased a lack of comprehension about the complexities of Capitol Hill.
With only a slim majority and staunch Democrat opposition, any Speaker candidate faced an uphill battle.
While the GOP eventually did find one candidate they could get behind with Mike Johnson (R-LA), Byron Donalds found one more thing the GOP can agree on: there is no need for commentary on the future of GOP Leadership from radical left-wingers like AOC.
