Oops Che did it again! Old tweet exposes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s debate hypocrisy

Earlier this year, soon-to-be-former NY-14 Rep. Joe Crowley was dodging Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “catcalling” on Twitter for a debate, so the feisty Democratic Socialist took matters into her own hands and just showed up in person to find out why he was avoiding her. From May 17, 2018:

My opponent seems to be avoiding a debate, and isn’t acknowledging me. It’s just the 2 of us.

So weekend I stopped by his office, said hello, & asked for a debate in person.

What a hypocrite. Maybe Ben Shapiro should just show up in person? (Yes, yes we know it’s not apples to apples.)

Rep. Crowley did finally accept the debate challenge after the in-your-face tactics of his challenger:

You’re absolutely right. I’ll be participating in the @NY1 debate on June 15! Hope you can tune in. And happy to connect you with #TeamCrowley if you have any questions before then.

— Joe Crowley (@JoeCrowleyNY) May 24, 2018

And things went pretty well:

I had a fabulous time!

Thank you @NY1, @errollouis & @JoeCrowleyNY and everyone tuning in tonight for this important debate on the state of NY-14 and our democracy. https://t.co/VP2aU3dJ3R

Ocasio-Cortez even got to promote her favorite lipstick:

I have been getting many inquiries about my debate lip color in the last two days.

I GOT YOU.

But Rep. Crowley chickened out of another event a few days later and Ocasio-Cortez let him have it:

I am disappointed that Rep. Crowley has failed to show up for the second time to a community debate.

The 1st time was an empty chair. Excuse was that he wasn’t in town.

The 2nd time he sent a surrogate. Except he tweeted photos of himself 5 subway stops away just this morning. https://t.co/XeOdMyAViW

In other words, calling out her opponent publicly on Twitter for a debate worked. Ocasio-Cortez ended up using Rep. Crowley’s cowardice to her advantage and now she’s going to Congress.

But now it’s reversed and she’s the one hiding. We wonder why…
