Fetterman Mocks House Chaos, AOC Defends Against Bullying

In a recent skirmish at a House Oversight Committee meeting, Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) ridiculed the chaos that erupted, likening the House to the sensationalistic Jerry Springer Show. Fetterman’s remarks drew a staunch defense from Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who accused Fetterman of failing to stand up to a bully and downplaying the seriousness of racism and misogyny.

The committee meeting was thrown into disarray when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) made a disparaging comment about Rep. Jasmine Crockett’s (D-TX) fake eyelashes. Ocasio-Cortez promptly intervened, rebuking Greene and calling for her comment to be expunged from the record. The exchange led to a prolonged disruption and a heated back-and-forth between several representatives, with Chairman James Comer (R-KY) struggling to restore order.

As the tumult continued, Ocasio-Cortez demanded an apology from Greene, who refused and even challenged Ocasio-Cortez to a debate, suggesting the congresswoman lacked the intellect for it. Ocasio-Cortez then moved to strike Greene’s words from the record once more.

Despite the commotion, the meeting persisted until late into the night, concluding with a 23-19 vote in favor of advancing a resolution to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt. The resolution stemmed from Garland’s refusal to release audio recordings from an interview with President Joe Biden related to a classified documents case.
