Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said Tuesday that she thought she might die during a “traumatizing” close encounter amid the chaos of last week’s deadly breach of the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters.
“I can tell you that I had a very close encounter where I thought I was going to die,” she said during an Instagram Live. “And you have all of those thoughts where, at the end of your life…all of these thoughts come rushing to you. And that’s what happened to a lot of us on Wednesday and I did not think – I did not know if I was going to make it to the end of that day alive. “We were very lucky that things happened in certain minutes that allowed members to escape the House floor but many of us nearly and narrowly escaped death, she added.
But inside her office, AOC didn’t know who was banging on the door. G told her to hide, so she went in her office’s bathroom, behind the door, which is where she was when she heard whoever was banging on the doors had gotten inside. I just start to hear these yells of, ‘Where is she?! Where is she?! she said. And I just thought to myself, they got inside. And so I hide behind my door, she continued. I just hear, where is she?! Where is she?! and this was the moment where I thought everything was over. Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t in the Capitol at the time of the assault on Congress, she was in her office another building entirely. Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional office is in the Cannon House Office Building, according to her website, her Washington, DC address is 229 Cannon HOB. The Cannon HOB is accessible to the Capitol via tunnel.
Before I start with the highly anticipated nominees and winner of the best political actor of 2021, I have to speak about my personal experience of the 3 finalists themes. I have never owned a private jet, have only one wife for 58 years, but know very well the layout of the Capital building and the Cannon house where the Representatives have their offices. As part of the Dpt. of Veteran’s Affairs leadership I attended a seminar in those buildings. I can assure you that in my going back and forth from each, if a shoot out would have occurred in the Capitol chambers, we would not be aware if at Cannon. Without further ado, the 2021 finalists are;
1. JOHN KERRY; for his role in “using my private jet, helps combat climate change”.
2. JOE Biden; stars in “how cheating on her husband and my best friend is a beautiful love story”
3. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez; for her role in “I thought I was going to be killed”.
AND THE WINNER IS;AOC for her teary eye performance that the MSM bought believing that Trump’s assassins were pounding her office door when she was in another building at the time of the events!
