Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Claps Back at GOPer After He Calls Her A ‘F-ing Bi*ch’ [VIDEO]

*During a speech from the House floor on Thursday, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez addressed Congressman Ted Yoho’s  “rude” and “abusive language” to her of  earlier this week.

Ocasio-Cortez says Yoho accosted her on the Capitol steps and called a “f*cking b*tch” over her views on police reform. 

“In front of reporters, Rep. Yoho called me, and I quote, ‘a f—— b—h.’ These are the words that Rep. Yoho levied against a congresswoman,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“I do not need Rep. Yoho to apologize to me. Clearly he does not want to. Clearly when given the opportunity he will not. And I will not stay up late at night waiting for an apology from a man who has no remorse over calling women and using abusive language towards women,” she said, MSN.com reports. 

“This is not new…It is a culture of lack of impunity; of accepting of violence and violent language against women; and an entire structure of power that supports that,” the New York Democrat added.

“Mr. Yoho said he has a wife and daughter. I am two years younger than Mr. Yoho’s youngest daughter. And I am somebody’s daughter, too. My father is thankfully not alive to see his daughter abused in this way.”

Yoho, a Florida Republican and staunch support of Donald Trump, apologized Wednesday for the “abrupt manner” he handled his exchange with Ocasio-Cortez, but denies calling her b*tch.

Yoho’s comments were reportedly overheard by a reporter for The Hill, and came after he called the congressman  “disgusting” for her stance on policing and crime.

“You are out of your freaking mind,” Yoho reportedly told Ocasio-Cortez after she previously suggested that poverty and unemployment are causing people to turn to crime in New York City. 

Ocasio-Cortez responded to by telling Yoho he was being “rude.”

After parting ways, Yoho was overheard by the reporter referring to Ocasio-Cortez as a “f—— b—h.”

“I rise today to apologize for the abrupt manner of the conversation I had with my colleague from New York. It is true that we disagree on policies and visions for America but that does not mean we should be disrespectful,” Yoho said.

He then denied that he used the profanity,  blaming the reporter for a “misunderstanding.”

“Having been married for 45 years, with two daughters, I’m very cognizant of my language,” Yoho said. “The offensive name-calling words attributed to me by the press were never spoken to my colleagues and if they were construed that way, I apologize for their misunderstanding.”
