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.
