AOC Rips Pence As ‘Anti-Science.’ Cruz: What’s A Y Chromosome?

When President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that Vice President Mike Pence would be assisting in overseeing the response to the Coronavirus, far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) rifled off tweets ridiculing Pence for “literally” not believing “in science.”

“Mike Pence literally does not believe in science,” hurled Ocasio-Cortez via Twitter. “It is utterly irresponsible to put him in charge of US coronavirus response as the world sits on the cusp of a pandemic.”

“This decision could cost people their lives,” fear-mongered AOC. “Pence’s past decisions already have.”

The congresswomen blamed an HIV outbreak in Indiana on the VP and blasted: “He is not a medical doctor. He is not a health expert. He is not qualified nor positioned in any way to protect our public health.”

Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz took issue with AOC’s “anti-science” smear, particularly over the elected Democrat’s views on things like sex, gender, and life. For example, AOC supports policies which suggest biological men who identify as women are female and living unborn humans are not living unborn humans.

“As you are speaking as the oracle of science, tell us, what exactly is a Y chromosome?” blasted the senator.

With regard to abortion, Cruz added: “And at what age of gestation does science tell us that an unborn child feels physical pain?”

The Republican then took a shot at AOC for continuously blasting the Trump administration with regard to her climate change hysterics: “And, of the 195 countries on planet Earth, which country produced the greatest total reduction in CO2 emissions in 2019?”

AOC responded to Cruz on Friday morning, though she side-stepped the issues of abortion and transgenderism highlighted by the senator, instead boasting of her credentials.

“Sen. Cruz, while I understand you judge people’s intelligence by the lowest income they’ve had, I hold awards from MIT Lincoln Lab &others for accomplishments in microbiology,” she responded. “Secondly, I’m surprised you’re asking about chromosomes given that you don’t even believe in evolution.”

Ocasio-Cortez signed off:

Sincerely, an Intel global finalist, a fmr multi-year intern for Sen. Kennedy, a cum laude dual major in Economics & International Relations, a fmr Educational Director for national organization, Who to you is “just a bartender,” And also your colleague.

“We see evolution every day: the Dem party is rapidly evolving into an angry, anti-science socialist ideology,” Cruz snarked in response. “You insulted Pence & I asked you 3 real Qs re science. You ignored all 3 & responded w/ your resume & ad hominem attacks. Instead of insults, address the substance.”

Attempting to get a real answer from the representative, Cruz again listed his questions:

To reprise, science Q1 was “tell us, what exactly is a Y chromosome?”

Science Q2 was “at what age of gestation does science tell us that an unborn child feels physical pain?”

And Science Q3 was “of the 195 countries on planet Earth, which country produced the greatest total reduction in CO2 emissions in 2019?”

Closing the thread, Cruz said he awaited AOC’s “engagement on the actual substance, as a colleague as you noted, hopefully without the insults.”

“Btw, congrats on the science fair,” the senator ended the exchange, quote-tweeting AOC’s list of her own accomplishments.
