    Ocasio-Cortez dismisses Ben Shapiro's debate offer, compares to 'catcalling'

    Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday dismissed an offer from conservative commentator Ben Shapiro challenging her to a debate, saying she doesn’t “owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.”

    “Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday night. “And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”

    Shapiro fired back at Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter while defending his offer:


    "Discussion and debate are not “bad intentions.” Slandering someone as a sexist catcaller without reason or evidence does demonstrate cowardice and bad intent, however."

    My, my, my. That's the "future of the Democratic Party", is it?

    I wonder if she whipped out her Woman Card and claimed it was "catcalling" when Stephen Colbert asked to interview her. That request was probably "unsolicited", too.

    So much for her claims that Republicans are afraid of HER. Looks the other way 'round to me.

    There would only be one reason to fear her and that's if stupidity was contagious.

    "Republicans are so scared of me that they’re faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can’t deal with reality anymore." - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

    If she gets her foot any farther in her mouth, she's going to have athlete's foot on her tonsils.

    I can only assume that the time it took her to even respond to his challenge was used up with her campaign Googling "Ben Shapiro", and then hyperventilating and having panic attacks.

    Who is Ben Shapiro?
    Aren't debates usually between candidates? Is he running for something?

    No, he just challenged her views.
    He would probably eat her up. Especially considering she is extremely ignorant.

    Ben Shapiro is one of the biggest names in conservative media, and hugely popular with millennials, her presumed base. Figures you'd be so far into your leftist bubble, you'd have no clue.

    Way to make excuses for her cowardice.

    The point is, this woman accomplished something pretty remarkable in a very peculiar voting district. And now she is being feted all over the country on interview shows where she is asked fatuous questions and allowed to ramble on without interruption or contradiction, on subjects where her content is nothing but vacuous blather. She shows herself as not particularly intelligent or well-informed, and certainly not worthy of being elevated to the informal position of, "The Future of the Democratic Party!"

    Hence, Shapiro tries to embarrass her with a tongue-in-cheek offer of a campaign contribution in exchange for a "debate," knowing that she wouldn't accept such an invitation in a thousand years. She would be annihilated.

    Shapiro - 1
    Alexandria - 0

    If the new talking point is that only political opponents can challenge, debate, or discuss policy with a candidate, someone had better tell every left-leaning talk show host in the history of forever who has interviewed a GOP candidate, because they've been doing it wrong all this time.

    I don't think it was tongue-in-cheek. I think he very much expected her to run and hide like a scared little girl - as she, in fact, did - but I also think he's quite serious about being willing to have the debate/interview/whatever, if she ever puts on her big-girl panties and takes his challenge.

    And yes, he'd take her positions apart like a cheap watch.
