After A Republican Congressman Got Done With Her, AOC Absolutely Exploded…

This is an awkward moment for the Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) as she exploded in anger at GOP Rep. Clay Higgins after he questioned a witness who repeatedly shouted while being questioned.

AOC accused the Louisiana congressman and other GOPers on the House Oversight Committee of disrespecting Raya Salter, a liftest lawyer and green energy advocate, during her testimony on corporations and climate change.

Higgins and Salter got into a tense, and times, shouting exchange. At one point, Higgins even called Salter “boo” as he pushed her to answer his question.

“In the four years that I’ve sat on this committee, I have never seen members of Congress, Republican or Democrat, disrespect a witness in the way that I have seen them disrespect you today,” AOC pontificated. “I do not care what party they are in. I’ve never seen anything like that.”

“And for the gentleman of Louisiana, and the comfort that he felt in yelling at you like that,” AOC claimed, “there’s more than one way to get a point across.”

“And, frankly, men who treat women like that in public, I fear how they treat them in private,” she concluded. “We can be better than this. We don’t have to resort to yelling.”

Higgins, who’s been in office since 2017, earlier asked Salter what she would do with all the material items she has from petrochemical products.

Salter then implored Higgins to “search your heart and understand why the EPA knows that toxic petrochemical facilities are some of the most toxic polluting facilities in the world and are killing black people throughout Louisiana.”

“My good lady, I’m trying to give you the floor, boo,” Higgins told Salter, who is also a law professor and member of the New York State Climate Action Council.

The two raised their voices at each other during the hearing that focused on the oil and gas companies’ contribution to climate change.

Salter again encouraged Higgins to search his heart and “ask your God what you are doing to the black and poor people in Louisiana.”
