Teen pundit responds to Dem Congresswoman who attacked him on Twitter: I’d rather discuss ‘issues I care about’ with you

Evie Fordham, DCNF

A pro-Trump teen pundit said he would prefer to discuss “issues I care about” rather than fight with Democratic New York Rep. Nydia Velazquez, who went after him on social media, on “Fox & Friends” Sunday.

I would have loved to have a discussion with the congresswoman about issues I care about, such as education, about reining in the national deficit which is $21 trillion, which is continuously kicked down the can by the leaders of today that my generation is going to have to pay back,” 16-year-old CJ Pearson said Sunday. “I would have loved to have that conversation with her, but instead she threatened and belittled me. It was classless and beneath the office that she holds.”

Velazquez told Pearson that “you’re right to be afraid of us” Tuesday after he referred to her as “the woman next to” Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet about the State of the Union address.

Pearson, 16, had joked on Twitter that “[Ocasio-Cortez] has been talking this entire speech and the woman next to her keeps trying to look the other way” during the State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Pearson responded to Velazquez’s remarks Wednesday.

Velazquez, 65, has not addressed her tweet to Pearson. Velazquez made news when she said “a room of men have no business undermining a woman’s unconditional right to choose” but added “that room of men is not referring to our governor” during a press conference with Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in July.
