On Wednesday, Greene tried to confront Ocasio-Cortez as the two left the House floor, shouting after her that she supported “terrorist” organizations like “antifa” and Black Lives Matter.
But, she added, she won’t be seen letting Greene intimidate her.
Greene has sought out Ocasio-Cortez before, seemingly fixated on the idea of debating the Green New Deal with her.
“She’d approached the congresswoman one time previously — though this was decidedly an escalation,” Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director Lauren Hitt told TPM.
Greene dismissed both Ocasio-Cortez’s safety concerns and the idea of her filing an ethics complaint, saying that she’s “reacting like a child.”.
Screaming is what people do when rockets are fired at them like Hamas terrorists are firing into Israel,” Greene told reporters.
Later on Thursday, Greene and members of her staff accused reporters of harassing her with their questions on the episode. »
