The New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the insults a Republican colleague was heard saying to her on the steps of the US Capitol on Monday are part of a larger problem faced by all women.
The Hill reported that Ocasio-Cortez was confronted by the Florida Republican congressman Ted Yoho. He apparently said she was ‘disgusting’ for saying of spiking gun violence in New York this month ‘is a problem of a diseased society, which neglects its marginalized people … policing is not the solution to crime’.
Speaking on the House floor on Thursday morning, Ocasio-Cortez said: ‘In front of reporters, Rep. Yoho called me, and I quote, a "fucking bitch"’
