Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) had a negative opinion of the CNN town hall this week, which included former President Donald Trump. She openly chastised the network for holding the event.
She expressed her annoyance on social media.
Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter that “CNN ought to be ashamed of itself. They have completely lost control of this ‘town hall,’ allowing it to be once again used as a platform for electoral misinformation, justifications for the events of January 6, and public criticism of a victim of sexual assault. He is being praised by the crowd, who is also making fun of the presenter.”
“This is all CNN’s fault,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “Everyone in this room could see what was about to happen. Instead, they endangered a victim of sexual assault to get attention. This was a decision to spread misinformation regarding the election and January 6th with no other intention than to have their moderator cut them off without repercussions.”
The former president spoke on a variety of topics during the event in New Hampshire, both from the time he was in office as well as after he left it.
He also discussed the actual election outcome.
According to Trump, “Unless You are a Very Stupid Person” It’s Clear That the 2020 Election Was Fixed.
According to Breitbart News, Trump was forceful in presenting his points to presenter Kaitlan Collins, all the while addressing directly to the crowd about the “gotcha” questions Collins had been asking nonstop all night.
The Republican and independent crowd applauded and laughed as Trump delivered his comments, according to footage from the AP news agency.
Trump said to the audience, “I like you guys,” as the evening came to a successful conclusion.
