AOC: Members of Congress Basically “Served in War” Jan. 6

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted that she is going to therapy after the riot at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6. In a radio interview, she claimed that members of Congress basically “served in war” that day.

In an interview with Latino USA, AOC said the events on January 6 were “extraordinarily traumatizing.” She compared the experience to losing her father at a young age. .

“After the 6th, I took some time and it was really [Rep.] Ayanna Pressley when I explained to her what happened to me, like the day of, because I ran to her office, and she was like, ‘you need to recognize trauma and that this is something that you went through, but we’re all going through,'” AOC said.

“I feel like I learned this the hard way after my father had passed away when I was a teenager,” she said. “That happened at a young age and I socked it away. I had to live with that for years.”

When asked if she is “doing therapy,” AOC said yes, claiming former President Donald Trump left the Latino community on edge.

“Oh yeah, I’m doing therapy but also I’ve just slowed down,” she said. “I think the Trump administration had a lot of us, especially Latino communities, in a very reactive mode.”

In February, AOC said she thought she “was going to die” during the Capitol riot.

AOC also said that “60 seconds could have meant potentially the difference between what we have right now and a martial state.”

For those who disagree with her interpretation of the January 6 events, AOC says they are experiencing “protection of mythology.”

“I think the attacks on the right are about. There are certain mythologies that are really important to this idea of American exceptionalism,” she said.

“But there’s also certain mythologies that are very important to maintaining white supremacy; white supremacy in and of itself is a mythology. And you have to protect it in order to protect that political power, which has now become a very important base in the Republican Party. And that’s why that response was so vociferous — to make it seem that it wasn’t as bad as it was, and it was bad. There are things that happened that day that if 60 seconds went differently, if a different door was opened, if a chair wasn’t barricaded in a certain way, we could have a completely different reality right now,” she added.

  1. What do you think, she going to want combat benefits now, the poor thing. Police officers go through this kind of stuff all the time. I don’t think she ever really grew up.

  2. That silly young lady has absolutely NO idea what being in a war zone is like! Put your big girl pantys on and quit whineing. YOU helped bring on 01-06 with all the false narratives YOU and your Squad peddled for over a year. YOU also had some help from Nadler, Waters, Pelosi, Swalwell and Shift. So please, grow up! Your supposed to be a Congresswoman, NOT a 5th grader.

  3. I can’t get over how much made up bulls~~t this witch makes up. I wouldn’t believe anything that comes out of her mouth. She is a very racist person and has help to do nothing except cause more trouble. She is just trash. She should not be in office she only serves her on interest and not the interest of the people who elected her.

  4. Really reaching across the aisle. She needs therapy no question. Just not from what she thinks. It’s quite apparent that she’s completely out of touch with reality when comparing herself to the real patriots who have fought for our freedoms.

  5. Various ones in the Squad behave as drama queens. AOC needs to stop thinking about herself, and think of all those, who have suffered at the hand of the Marxist BLM and ANTIFA last year. Even recently, many have had their homes and businesses destroyed. Many of us lost one or both of our parents, as young children, have been threatened, hacked, and held hostage. The Squad are emotional manipulators to the men in government. The women know how to turn the tears off and on.

  6. She is lying about being traumatized on January 6, She was visiting a friend in another House Office Building when the attack occurred!

  7. She is SO FOS ! If that was war, she & her other cronies were ALL cowards & should be court-martialed !!
