After Slur Accusation, AOC Shoots Back: Conway's 'Engaged In A War On Facts'

The battle’s on.

After Kellyanne Conway accused Rep.-Elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — without mentioning her name — of tweeting a “slur” about White House chief of staff John Kelly and diminishing her intelligence on Fox News Tuesday, the soon-to-be congresswoman shot back, suggesting Conway has been “engaged in a war on facts” since President Trump took office.



Kellyanne Conway has been engaged in a War on Facts since Inauguration Day.

Leveraging those who belittle my capacity is exactly how I defeated a multi-generation, multi-million $ political machine. GOP is even weaker bc their bias has no self-control.https://t.co/QHA66XqInY

After Trump announced that Kelly would be leaving the White House at the end of the year, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that Kelly still owes an apology to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), whom he disparaged earlier this year. She called Kelly’s actions “cowardice,” which Conway interpreted as a slur before she suggested that Ocasio-Cortez “doesn’t seem to know much about anything.”

1. AOC is living rent-free in the back of their heads

I've never seen a freshman congressional rep. get so much attention. It's like she's Angela Davis times Che Guevara.

I'd advise her to live beyond reproach: never have 3 drinks, never smoke a joint, because they're gunning for her. The slightest misstep and they'll pounce. Hell, they're already pouncing.

4. She hasn't even been seated yet.

They are obviously terrified of her. And for good reason, it seems.

She hits back twice as hard and focused as they hit her.
