AOC Spokesman Deletes Profane Tweet Attacking Possible Republican Challenger

A spokesman for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) sent a profane tweet attacking a possible Republican challenger to Ocasio-Cortez for asking for a debate. The staffer has since deleted the tweet.

“Yo @RichValdes what in the actual f— makes you think you’re entitled to a debate with AOC,” Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, tweeted on Sunday according to Fox News. “Pro tip: stalking her at a parade ain’t gonna make it any more likely to happen.”

Rich Valdes, who is a conservative talk radio producer, “tried to challenge Ocasio-Cortez to a debate on the merits of capitalism versus socialism as they both marched in the National Puerto Rican Day Parade,” per Fox News.

Valdes alleged that Ocasio-Cortez ran away from his challenge at the parade, which Trent disputed when asked about the encounter by the New York Post. That triggered Trent’s tweet, which was eventually deleted.

“I did indeed delete it. It didn’t seem that helpful,” Trent told the Post.

“I regret that so many people right from presidential candidates to right-wing commentators to random people that start organizations think that they’re entitled to people’s time. I think she’s spending a ton of time in the district talking about what she’s doing, talking about why she’s doing it and making a case for her policies,” Trent added.

“If Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez condones her spokesperson’s belligerent behavior and language, that’s on her. It speaks volumes to how much she respects civility and respectful civil discourse [which is] something we desperately need today,” Valdes told the Post.
