Thursday, AOC responded to Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s criticism to her tweet.
Cruz said “You know, there’s a lot of partisan anger and rage on the Democratic side. It’s, it’s not healthy for our country, it’s certainly not conducive of healing or unity, but everyone has to decide how they want to interact with others.”
AOC responded to a quote of Cruz’s statement and responded:
Oh, there’s anger?
Now why would there be anger that Cruz amplified known lies about our election that fueled an insurrection that cost ppl’s lives?
What does he think the logical response to his lies should be? A hug?
Maybe there’s anger bc his actions deserve accountability.
She mocked the GOP in a follow-up tweet
“We need healing + unity, but I will not take any responsibility for my actions, nor will I acknowledge the contributions my lies made to the violence or the harm that it caused, nor do I believe anyone should be held accountable. But if you’re mad at that you’re divisive.” – GOP
