Representative Alexandria Occasio Cortez (D-Ny.) is no stranger to theatrics and inflating the threat to her personal safety.
After the January 6th ‘Stop the Steal’ protests, Cortez repeatedly said that she believed her life was legitimately threatened by the protests.
In an interview with CNN, she reportedly said that she “didn’t think that I was just going to be killed,” but that ‘other things were going to happen to her as well.’
Since then, AOC has gone all-in on playing the victim.
In an interview with GQ magazine this week, the Congresswoman openly expressed her fear that she may not even ‘be alive in September’ due to threats on her life.
She also discussed feminism and abortion during the interview, saying that ‘men suffer from being under patriarchy’
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested in a lengthy interview with GQ that she fears for her life and is uncertain about her future because “so many people in this country hate women” and “women of color,” specifically.
Ocasio-Cortez, who is featured in the latest edition of GQ, praised the magazine for taking “some big risks” and interviewing her so she could “tackle the issue of gender and politics.” She made it clear that was proud to have “two legendary trans icons … photographing and styling the images” in the feature shoot.
“Shout out to GQ for being willing to go there and discuss good men, what it looks like to step up and grow, and what healthy masculinity looks like in the modern age,” she wrote on Instagram, promoting the interview.
While she discussed issues such as abortion as well as gender in politics — she claimed “men suffer from being under patriarchy” — she also talked about her future and expressed great concern.
