Newt Gingrich Crashes And Burns After Trying To Shame Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R) got more than what he bargained for after he attacked Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a vicious op-ed for Fox News.
Ocasio-Cortez fired back on Friday, tweeting she would take Gingrich’s attacks “as a compliment” because of all the other people that Gingrich and his fellow Republicans have also previously called liars:
“Ah yes, now Newt & the GOP are resorting to calling me a liar,” she wrote. “Who else do they call liars? 96% of scientists who agree on climate change, millions of Americans they locked up in the War on Drug, #MeToo survivors'”
So I’ll take it as a compliment. Thanks,” she added.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough also responded to Gingrich:
“While trying to attack @AOC, Newt unwittingly writes a scathing indictment of Donald J. Trump,” he wrote, noting that lying is a natural habit for Trump.
Ah yes, now Newt & the GOP are resorting to calling me a liar.
Who else do they call liars?
– 96% of scientists who agree on climate change
– Millions of Americans they locked up in the War on Drugs
– #MeToo survivors
So I’ll take it as a compliment. Thanks. https://t.co/2AXUz5zave
