Cutting to the heart of the matter with her characteristic bluntness, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez this week pointed out the absurdity of placing Pence in charge of a potentially looming health crisis. “Mike Pence literally does not believe in science,” she tweeted on Wednesday.
Rushing to the defense of the administration the next day, Ted Cruz jumped into the fray. “As you are speaking as the oracle of science, tell us, what exactly is a Y chromosome?” Cruz responded on Twitter. “And at what age of gestation does science tell us that an unborn child feels physical pain?”
He may have picked the wrong opponent – Ocasio-Cortez, it transpires, holds an award for microbiology from MIT. Ocasio-Cortez did not let the slight go unaddressed this morning. Touting her scientific background bona fides, and jabbing at Cruz, who, like Pence, gives primacy to his religious beliefs over science, she delivered an acerbic put-down. “I’m surprised you’re asking about chromosomes given that you don’t believe in evolution,” she said.
Cruz stopped responding after that.
