'She Ain't Worth It': Ocasio-Cortez Zings Taylor Greene As Lawmakers Go At It

The exchange was one of several testy moments outside the US Capitol on Wednesday.

Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene (Republican, Georgia) and Jamaal Bowman (Democrat, New York) got into a shouting match outside the Capitol on Wednesday. The two yelled until Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Democrat, New York) stepped in to defuse the situation by taking a shot at Greene.

“She ain’t worth it, bro,” Ocasio-Cortez said, tapping Bowman on the shoulder. “She ain’t worth it, bro.”

The moment was captured from different angles by reporters for CNN and The Daily Beast:

Bowman and Ocasio-Cortez had just finished heckling Representative George Santos (Republican, New York) who was speaking to reporters on the Capitol steps shortly after he survived a motion to expel him.

Santos last week was arraigned on 13 federal counts including multiple counts of fraud and money laundering.

Santos ― already the subject of bipartisan calls to resign due to his extensive history of lying ― faced renewed calls to step down after the arraignment as well as the motion to expel.

“Kick him out!” Bowman yelled from the steps, telling him to “have some dignity” and “resign.”

“You gotta go,” Ocasio-Cortez added.

Santos called Bowman “deranged.”
