Tweet by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
@AOC
As most people know by now, many
things were stolen during the terrorist
insurrection at the Capitol: laptops, mail,
even the Speaker's lectern.
Security cameras also picked up a well-
disguised fellow about 5'4" stealing all of
my SHOES, for Chrissake. Unbelievable

Then she'll remove the boot and smash her bare feet against my lips to silence my so-called 'hate' speech.
