Despite being accused once again of being a shameless liar, far-left New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to claim she’s telling the truth.

It’s now believed by some that AOC lied by claiming she’d been in the thick of the riots that overtook the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6th. It is now being claimed that she’d instead been in a side building that the rioters never penetrated.

This isn’t to say that AOC wasn’t affected by the riot. But it does dispute her hyperbolic shrieks about how she was hunted to be murdered — and about how she feared that the Capitol Police officer who’d come to help her was one of the rioters.

Now, while the evidence disproving AOC’s claim appears to be legion, one recent piece of evidence is the testimony of South Carolina Rep. Nancy Mace.

Mace has said that she knows that the New York congresswoman exaggerated because she’d been situated only feet away from her during the riot.


Responding to this tweet, AOC doubled down.

“This is a deeply cynical & disgusting attack. As the Capitol complex was stormed & people were being killed, none of us knew in the moment what areas were compromised. You previously told reporters yourself that you barricaded in your office, afraid you’d be hurt,” she responded.


But none of what Mace previously said negates the argument that AOC is being dishonest. Plus, it’s not as if Mace has ever once changed her story. It’s seemingly remained consistent throughout.

Or has it? The New York congresswoman tried to claim it hasn’t. She tried to do this by retweeting the tweet Mace had posted during the riot.


“Just evacuated my office in Cannon due to a nearby threat. Now we’re seeing protesters assaulting Capitol Police. This is wrong. This is not who we are. I’m heartbroken for our nation today,” Mace’s Jan. 6th tweet reads.

As noted by the thousands of critics who’ve been ratioing AOC’s tweets nonstop for the past 24 or so hours, the keywords there are “NEARBY THREAT,” as in not an imminent threat.


If anything, it seems AOC just proved Mace’s point to a T.

Now look at how Mace herself responded to AOC’s failed attempt to dunk on her:

Yet AOC chose to triple down.


This “deeply cynical & disgusting attack” provoked another reality-check from Mace.

As of 1:45 pm Thursday afternoon, AOC had not yet responded.
