Said Yoho: “You are out of your freaking mind.”
Ocasio-Cortez shot back, telling Yoho he was being “rude.” The two then parted ways.
Ocasio-Cortez headed into the building, while Yoho, joined by Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX), began descending toward the House office buildings. A few steps down, Yoho offered a parting thought to no one in particular: “Fucking bitch.”Save to Favorites
