Ocasio-Cortez hits back at Jamie Dimon after Green New Deal criticism

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez

The host of Late Night With Seth Meyers asked the congresswoman on his show on Thursday night about the time she did well in a school science competition when she was a teenager.

"You know what's amusing about this whole thing?" she tweeted Thursday.

- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 21, 2019By the way: Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as "Cortez", which I can only imagine is bc that sounds more "stereotypically" Hispanic + probably incites more "anxiety" for them.

Watch Ocasio-Cortez clap back at her right-wing critics in the clip above.

She said: "My last name is Ocasio-Cortez".

"It's really amusing and the conspiracy theories are great", she added.

"There's clearly a correlation between the intensity of Fox News and Breitbart and all those folks and the amount of threats that we get", she told the Daily News. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose favorability numbers have plummeted in some recent polls, is already front and center in a GOP congressional candidate's upcoming campaign advertisement.

"You may be unsurprised to learn that this is untrue", Elliott said of Ocasio-Cortez's tweet accusation.

AOC's represents the Bronx and Queens districts of NY.

Ocasio-Cortez also vehemently defended her Green New Deal during her time on the show, claiming Trump and other critics are manipulating the narrative around her proposal for climate change reform. "I was on the floor once, and this guy came up to me and he was like, 'Is it true that you got $10 million from Netflix?' And I was like, 'No?'" This conversation happened while they were "in the well, voting on gun reform", so naturally it made her a little uneasy. "It's not a "progressive, new thing.' It's just how some names work".
