Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during an interview over the weekend after she suggested late last week that he was a bully for mocking childish antics that played out in the U.S. House that involved AOC.

Fetterman had commented on the drama that unfolded on the House Oversight Committee when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) got in a verbal altercation after Crockett insulted Greene’s intelligence and Greene responded by insulting her appearance. The incident quickly escalated from there, with other members getting involved, including AOC.

“In the past, I’ve described the U.S. House as The Jerry Springer Show,” Fetterman posted on X. “Today, I’m apologizing to The Jerry Springer Show.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded by lashing out at Fetterman, and appeared to take a shot at his mental fitness for office, calling him “confused,” which comes after he suffered a serious stroke in 2022 and has had lingering issues related to speech and hearing ever since.

“I understand you likely would not have stood up for your colleague and seem to be confused about racism and misogyny being a ‘both sides’ issue,” AOC posted. “But I stand up to bullies, instead of becoming one.”

“And to the women of Pennsylvania: I’d stand up for you too,” she continued. “Enjoy your Friday.”

Fetterman responded to AOC’s remarks during a Sunday appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper when asked about the situation.

“Oh, well, of course, that‘s absurd,” Fetterman said. “I was just simply responding to the kind of chaos and everything that Rep. Greene started as well.”

“And if everyone on the committee was proud of what they‘ve produced, they are entitled to their opinion or if they feel that this is the kind of a video that you want to send to a classroom of 8th grade civics kind of students across America,” he added. “That’s their choice.”
