Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Ridicules Republicans For This 1 Key Achievement

On Monday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” guest host Desus Nice asked the New York congresswoman what was accomplished in the House before it ground to a standstill following Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) ousting as speaker and the GOP’s subsequent failure to elect a replacement.

“I will say from when Republicans took over to now, they provided a lot of meme content,” Ocasio-Cortez zinged to laughter from the audience.

Earlier in the interview, Ocasio-Cortez warned why a far-right figure like the Donald Trump-backed Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) — whose bid to become speaker imploded last week ― shouldn’t win the role because “whoever takes over could potentially put our democracy in danger when it comes to certifying or recertifying an election and so on.”
