AOC Slams Ted Cruz After He Tried To Question Her Knowledge Of Coronavirus

A fight on Twitter broke out on Friday between Republican Senator Ted Cruz and Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The feud began when Ocasio-Cortez criticized Donald Trump’s decision to appoint Vice President Mike Pence to lead the fight against the Coronavirus, saying the right-wing Christian “literally does not believe in science.”

“It is utterly irresponsible to put him in charge of US coronavirus response as the world sits on the cusp of a pandemic,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “This decision could cost people their lives. Pence’s past decisions already have.”

Cruz tried to attack the New York Democrats by mocking her on Twitter.

“As you are speaking as the oracle of science, tell us, what exactly is a Y chromosome?” Cruz tweeted.

But Ocasio-Cortez did not stand back. She responded to Cruz by questioning his knowledge.

“Sen. Cruz, while I understand you judge people’s intelligence by the lowest income they’ve had, I hold awards from MIT Lincoln Lab &others for accomplishments in microbiology,” Ocasio-Cortez replied. “Secondly, I’m surprised you’re asking about chromosomes given that you don’t even believe in evolution.”
