AOC Says People Criticize Her “Because They Don’t Have Another Woman to Vilify”

Recently, Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brushed off mounting bipartisan scrutiny, which she attributed to her critics’ “need” to “vilify” a female politician, making a reference to Hillary Clinton.

Ocasio-Cortez alleged her critics “need to find another woman, to kind of ‘prop up’ and become a lightning rod” while claiming to currently serve as such a foil for her political detractors.

Since her upstart election to Congress during the 2018 midterms, Ocasio-Cortez has frequently lamented growing criticism coming from both Republicans, as well as her fellow Democrats.

Social media, however, was less-than-sympathetic towards the young congresswoman, with many overwhelmingly suggesting Ocasio-Cortez is “playing the victim.”
