Ocasio-Cortez Returns Campaign Funds to ‘Catcallers’

Share Button

(2018-08-11) — After accusing pundit Ben Shapiro of ‘catcalling’ when he offered her campaign $10,000 if she would sit down for an interview with him, New York Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez today announced she would return all campaign funds to any donor who expected her to do anything.

“Ben Shapiro catcalled me because he wants something,” said Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic-Socialist. “I suddenly realized that every campaign donor also wants something. They want me to sponsor legislation, to speak out, or even to win the election. They’re virtually hollering, ‘Hey, Baby, can I get some of that action?’. That’s simply unacceptable. This is my #MeToo moment, and I won’t be manipulated any more.”

Shapiro, a founder of The Daily Wire, shocked America when he posted a video to Twitter inviting Ocasio-Cortez to have a conversation about what she believes, or even a debate for charity if she prefers. The clearly-sexist effort to ‘mansplain’ his political ideology to a vulnerable woman, triggered a social media avalanche, which means that what he did was wrong and Shapiro should apologize.

    At least she didn’t realize, by him mentioning her name, that was tantamount to a ‘wolf whistle’. That is SO much worse than a measly ‘cat-call’!!

    I just want to know what makes this female think “anyone” would want to “Cat call” in her direction at all? From the photo’s I’ve seen she’s likely only able to hear dog whistles!
