Since the day she won her congressional seat in 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been a subject of fascination for Conservatives. She is talked about ad nauseam on the Fox News Network. The congresswoman is also a frequent target for President Trump who often calls her the face of the Democratic party.
None of the criticism, however, prepared AOC for the moment she faced during a Thursday night town hall. During the event, a woman began to shout about climate change and said people will have to resort to eating babies. A Pro-Trump conservative group has now taken responsibility for the incident.
The question asker had yelled, “But we’re not going to be here much long because of the climate crisis. We got to start eating babies.” The woman was also decked out in a shirt that read, “Save the planet. Eat the children.”
The woman also shouted, “Even if we would bomb Russia, we still have too many people, too much pollution, so we have to get rid of the babies!”
Seems like a normal AOC supporter to me. https://t.co/NWVMRD0wsl

The President was also quick to weigh in, retweeting his son and writing, “AOC is a wack job!”
Now it turns out the woman isn’t an Ocasio-Cortez supporter, but a Trump supporter. She came from a group called the LaRouche PAC.
The group tweeted out last night, “LaRouchePAC trolls AOC, AOC doesn’t rule out eating babies.”
