Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just made the biggest mistake of her life.
The socialist Congresswoman launched an attack on America like never before.
And how two veterans responded will leave you speechless.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was on her home turf speaking before a Bronx community group.
During the closed-door session, she fielded a variety of questions.
One was about American foreign policy.
Ocasio-Cortez launched into a tirade about how America was fueling the Yemeni civil war.
Three veterans in attendance heard enough and got up and walked out.
The New York Post reports:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bashed US foreign policy during a private meeting with Bronx community leaders, prompting two military veterans to storm out.
“She knocks the country, she knocks the president. And that’s not what America is about,” said Silvio Mazzella, a Vietnam War vet and treasurer of Community Board 11.
Anthony Vitaliano — an Army veteran who worked in the NYPD for 38 years, and commanded the Bronx’s homicide detectives — was sitting between Ocasio-Cortez and a staffer for the freshman Dem.
“I just couldn’t hear her BS anymore,” the former CB11 chairman said. “I just got up, got my umbrella in my hand and walked right out.”
Picking a fight with veterans is a fight not even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can win.
America’s heroes serve with honor and dignity.
And when they speak on political matters, Americans pay attention.
Ocasio-Cortez made the situation worse when her spokesman claimed no one walked out of the meeting.
But one of the vets called that a lie.
The Post also reports:
“The only person that left the meeting while it was underway was someone who had to go pick up their children,” said AOC spokesman Corbin Trent.
Asked about Trent’s comment, Vitaliano said, “That’s bulls–t. Everybody that was there knows I walked out.”
