Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) triggered Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Friday when he criticized a congressional hearing during which she recently made news after she got into a verbal spat with other female lawmakers.

Fetterman commented on the childish drama that unfolded yesterday 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.”
