New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday night called out a far-right troll who approached her on the Capitol steps earlier that day and made lewd comments about her body.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) recently shared footage of a right-wing heckler sexually harassing her outside the Capitol. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene(R-Ga.) thinks she should be grateful for it.
In the clip, the white man, Alex Stein, yelled lewd and racially-charged comments at Ocasio-Cortez as she walked up the steps to the Capitol.
But Greene called his actions “quite the compliment.” She even had Stein on her podcasts.
“I think women should be confident,” Greene said. “And if a man gives you a compliment, a woman can say ‘thank you.’”
Stein also posted other videos on Wednesday, including one in which he approaches Rep. Adam Kinzinger on the Capitol steps, calling him a “fake RINO Republican,” and a “scumbag,” among other insults.
Stein first went viral in March 2021 when he rapped about putting a “bullet in Putin’s brain” while speaking at a city council meeting in Texas.
He then got into a kerfuffle with Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw at a GOP event in Texas in June, where he called Crenshaw a “globalist RINO” and “eyepatch McCain.”
Crenshaw later shot back at Stein in a tweet, stating: “This is what happens when angry little boys like @alexstein99 don’t grow up and can’t get girlfriends.”
