Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Republicans Criticizing Her Over Latest Mistake: Stop 'Drooling' Over My Every Word

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit back at Republicans for criticizing her latest misstep, saying they need to stop “drooling” over every word that comes out of her mouth.

“Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd, they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare,” she said in response to a Republican state lawmaker wondering if the Democratic Socialist could explain a “chamber of government.”

The exchange comes after Ocasio-Cortez seemed confused about the structure of the U.S. government.  

"If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House," she said Saturday in a call with Justice Democrats, a progressive political action committee. 

Ocasio-Cortez encouraged far-left supporters to join Justice Democrats if they were interested in becoming a member of Congress.  

“If you’re a strong progressive leader in your community and committed to getting money out of politics, I want you to join me in Congress. I want you to run.
