During the White House Press Conference today, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany spoke about Alexandria Ocasio Cortez calling her “Congresswoman in one part of her comment and then “Biden adviser” in another part of her comment.

The fake news media chose to ignore the fact that McEnany addressed AOC as “Congresswoman” and chose to focus on McEnany calling AOC a “Biden adviser.” The media completely lied about what was said and pushed out a tweet from AOC repeating the lie:

.@PressSec wouldn’t be the first person to mistake a women of color for having a lower position or title than she does, but Kayleigh – in case you haven’t picked up a newspaper in two years, I’m a Congresswoman.

AOC continued with a second tweet claiming racism:

The @PressSec comment is steeped in a long, hurtful, & horrendous history of stripping women of color of titles and diminishing them to “the help.” Perhaps she isn’t aware that what she did is mired in racist history. If that is the case, I look forward to her apology tomorrow.


McEnany wasn’t having it. She tweeted back to AOC to “read the transcript.”
