Ocasio-Cortez After Being Booed By GOP Lawmakers: ‘Don’t Hate Me Cause You Ain’t Me, Fellas’





Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) fired back at members of the GOP who booed her on Thursday after voting for newly-elected Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)

“Over 200 members voted for Nancy Pelosi today, yet the GOP only booed one: me,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me, fellas.”




Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman elected to Congress, shared the tweet along with a video of her vote, which shows some lawmakers expressing disapproval of her “yes” vote for Pelosi.

Some reporters in the chamber described the reaction as “boos,” while others said they were “groans.”

“Republicans gently and playfully boo as AOC votes for Pelosi,” Michael Barbaro, of the New York Times, tweeted.

Pelosi won the Speakership on Thursday in a 220-192 vote over House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.)
