On Thursday (October 13), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) hit back at Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (Colo.) after the GOP lawmaker accused the Democrat of rarely seeing her constituents.

Taking to Twitter, “Hey Boebert, you seem to have us confused. She then continued her tweet by pointing out the differences between her and Republicans.

“I: have attended & hosted 100s of community events, hold regular town halls, don’t take a dime in corporate cash. You: are bankrolled by corporate PACs, Big Ag, & Oil, are too scared to hold regular town halls open to all.”

The latest bashing between the two lawmakers was sparked by Boebert posting a video of a man shouting at Ocasio-Cortez for supporting the war in Ukraine at a town hall.
She captioned the video, “On the rare occasions that @AOC actually spends time with her constituents, she is reminded that she has sold them out at every turn.”

This isn’t Boebert and Ocasio-Cortez’s first feud. The congresswomen, who represent the apex of their respective parties’ views, have clashed frequently.

Last year the Congresswomen clashed over attire when Boebert mocked Ocasio-Cortez when she showed up to an event to meet former President Donald Trump wearing a red dress that contained the anti-Biden phrase “Let’s Go Brandon.”

Her attire was a troll of the dress Ocasio-Cortez wore to the MET gala, which had “Tax the Rich” in big, red bold letters on the back of the dress.

The New York Democrat was called out — even in some liberal circles — for the tone-deaf nature of wearing a dress with the phrase “Tax the Rich” to one of the most exclusive events, attended by some of the world’s wealthiest individuals.

The pair clashed again in December 2021 when Ocasio-Cortez took issue with an image Boebert posted of her sons holding guns in front of a Christmas tree. Boebert responded by accusing the New York Democrat of using her position to criticize children’s Christmas gifts.
