Bartender AOC on MTG: “These Are the Kinds of People That I Threw Out of Bars All the Time”

 Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) spoke to reporters Thursday about being confronted by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) outside the House chamber Wednesday night over her support for terrorists and ducking a debate on the Green New Deal. Ocasio-Cortez refused to speak to Greene, but played the race card when speaking to reporters and insulted Greene as the kind of person she threw out of bars when she worked as a bartender. Greene commented separately to reporters that Ocasio-Cortez is “reacting like a child.”

Washington Post’s Mike DeBonis, “>@AOC to reporters on her encounter with @mtgreenee: “I refuse to allow young women, people of color, people who are standing up for what they believe to see this kind of intimidation attempts by a person who supports white supremacists.”

CNN’s Manu Raju, “AOC says of MTG: “I used to work as a bartender. These are the kinds of people that I threw out of bars all the time.”

The Guardian’s Hugo Lowell, “House Dem AOC says it’s up to House Ethics whether to investigate Marjorie Taylor Greene for what Pelosi described today as abuse, but notes: “This is a belligerent person not in control of themselves.”

AOC chimed in Twitter with a comment about tipping and gamers, “Friendly reminder to keep generously tipping your bartenders, servers, delivery, venue, and hospitality workers…(And no this is not intended for magic the gathering players, you’re cool w/ me)”

Greene also spoke to reporters, likening Ocasio-Cortez to a child, “See, that’s bipartisanship, talking to one another, debating policy for the American people. That’s what needs to happen. So, no, she doesn’t need to file ethics, uh, violations or whatever she’s doing. That’s, that’s reacting like a child. Adults are able to debate policy.”

The Hill’s Scott Wong, “MTG on AOC: I was “talking to her, talking to her. You know what screaming is? Screaming is what people do when rockets are fired at them like Hamas terrorists are firing into Israel. “I was talking to @AOC saying you need to debate me about the Green New Deal.” Per Hill pool”

CBS News’ Nicole Killion, “#MTG explained earlier to reporters that she was trying to “talk” to #AOC, not “scream” — “I was talking to AOC, saying you need to debate me about the Green New Deal. That’s her legislation. She should be able to defend it for the American people, ” she said.”

The Washington Post’s Jacqueline Alemany, who first reported on the confrontation, “Caught @mtgreenee on her way out of votes: She says her behavior towards @AOC was appropriate and that she was only “raising her voice.” “She can’t call me a bully bc I’m trying to talk w her about policy that will change our economy.. What she is a coward & a fraud & a fake.”…MTG: “Ever since Jan. 6 they can’t even treat us w/ respect and we were victims, too. We didn’t cause it. All these lies they say on and on and on. They need to be civil. None of them are civil to me,” she said referring to Democrats…”This behavior you’re exhibiting is exactly the same type of behavior…. Actually, this is far worse,” @mtgreenee said, equating her yelling at and chasing down @AOC yesterday to engaging in dialogue with reporters on her walk to her car.”

The Post’s Greg Sargent reports Rep. David Cicilline is going to sic the House Sergeant at Arms on MTG, “Once again, Marjorie Taylor Green has crossed the line. I’m concerned it will continue to escalate…I’m going to ask the Sergeant at Arms to directly speak with MTG and make it clear she can’t confront other members of Congress.” Rep @davidcicilline, to me, in this piece:”
