Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) had to step in as Representatives Jamaal Bowman and Marjorie Taylor Greene were engaged in a heated argument Wednesday.
The wild scene took place on the steps of the Capitol as the two ‘Squad’ member Democrats began heckling embattled New York Republican congressman George Santos.
“You’ve got to resign, bro!” Bowman shouted at Santos as he spoke to a group of reporters.
AOC chimed in shouting, “You gotta go, man!”
The Republican was recently hit with 13 federal charges including wire fraud, money laundering, theft of public funds, and making materially false statements.
Santos broke up the discussion with the media, stating truthfully: “I can’t continue to address you guys because there is a deranged member here.”
It’s unclear which of the two Democrats Santos was correctly referring to.

AOC Steps in Between Bowman and Marjorie Taylor Greene
Upon Santos’ departure, Bowman began going after Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
“Expel him! Save the party! Your party’s hanging by a thread!” the New York Democrat squawked in Greene’s direction.
“No, we gotta get rid of Biden to save the country! Impeach Biden! Impeach Biden! Impeach Biden!” Greene replied.

The two continued to spar for about a minute. Fearing she wasn’t getting enough attention with this melee, AOC stepped in, tapped Bowman on the shoulder, and said, “She ain’t worth it, bro.”
Bowman laughed before Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) repeated, “She ain’t worth it, bro. She ain’t worth it.”

Liberal media outlet Mediaite hilariously portrayed the incident as AOC ‘intervening’ to prevent Bowman from “throwing down with Marjorie Taylor Greene.”
Greene had already begun walking away before AOC stepped in behind Bowman. She didn’t intervene in anything. And Bowman certainly wasn’t about to “throw down.”

Bowman’s Ignorance on Full Display
Perhaps beyond the entertainment value of the juvenile display by Bowman and Ocasio-Cortez is this little-noticed snippet of the back-and-forth with Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Greene brought up something The Political Insider reported on recently – the fact that 85,000 migrant children have been “lost” by the Biden administration.
“Where are all the kids? Where are all the migrant children?” Greene asked.
Bowman replied, “What kids?”
Despite repeatedly explaining to the Democrat that the administration has lost these children, Bowman countered, “We love the migrant children.”
But it was clear he had no idea what she was talking about.
“You don’t know the news,” an exasperated Greene said.
“No, no, no, we don’t know the news,” Bowman admitted. “That’s Fox News. That’s Fox News.”
One of the underrated aspects of this exchange with @RepMTG is that @RepBowman is clearly unaware of the fact that the Biden administration lost 85,000 migrant children.
He dismisses it as fake news from Fox.
Except, numbers come from HHS, as reported by @hannahdreier at the NY… https://t.co/LXRzixife5

One small problem. That report didn’t come from Fox News. It came from New York Times investigative reporter Hannah Dreier, who has been covering the lost migrant children.
“In several congressional hearings, HHS Secretary Becerra has been asked about our reporting that HHS couldn’t reach 85,000 migrant children right after releasing them,” Dreier tweeted after the Secretary, like Bowman, feigned ignorance.
“He says he doesn’t know where those numbers come from. For what it’s worth, they’re from the HHS press office.”

This display by Bowman seems to be a new tactic with him.
Two months ago he threw a wild temper tantrum just outside the House floor over his party’s inability to ban guns in America.
The incident began when Bowman ambushed his Republican colleagues by shouting at them as they left the chamber for not backing stricter gun control measures.
“They’re cowards! They’re all cowards!” he screeched. “They won’t do anything to save the lives of our children at all. Cowards!”
Republicans won’t do SHIT when it comes to gun violence, but try to tell me to calm down.
We can’t calm down. People are dying everyday while we wait. pic.twitter.com/38mYYW9cgs

Bowman has to yell and screech like a child seeking attention to get his point across.
Remember when Democrats tried to convince people that the adults were in charge? In reality, they’re emotionally unstable, hormonally temperamental, incapable of communicating, and reduced to arguing like ignorant pre-teens.
