Ms Greene, a controversial GOP congressman, was caught accusing Ms Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday evening by two reporters of Le Washington Post .
Ms Green ran over to the Democrat, who was apparently pulling away from her and refusing to recognize the repeated cries of “Hey Alexandria!”
“You don’t care about the American people,” shouted Ms. Greene, mistakenly calling activists and Black Lives Matter organizations “terrorists.” “Why do you support the terrorists and the antifa?”
Journalists from the post then saw Mrs. Ocasio-Cortez throw her hands in the air in “exasperation” at Mrs. Greene’s antics.
In a statement, Ms Ocasio-Cortez’s office said the post that “We hope the leadership and the Sergeant-at-Arms take real action to make Congress a safe and civilian place for all members and staff.”
“Especially since many offices are discussing the reopening. A member has already been forced to relocate his office due to attacks by Congressman Greene, ”added the statement from Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, referring to Representative Cori Bush.
Following the report, Twitter users called for Ms Greene’s arrest or for the Republican to be completely kicked out of the chamber.
“AOC is also expected to obtain a restraining order against MTG. It must be closed or even stopped if necessary. People must stop giving him a pass to abuse others with his insanity, ”wrote Dr Vicki Ross-Norris.
“MTG is a tyrant,” added Laura Baker, “And, the GOP ousts a well-spoken and intelligent Republican in Cheney.” I do not understand. McCarthy watches out for the wrong people.
The confrontation followed Liz Cheney’s ousting as Republican conference chair on Wednesday, after calls from GOP members backing Trump, including Ms Greene and parliamentary minority leader Kevin McCarthy.
After the insurgency on Capitol Hill in January, Ms Ocasio-Cortez told CNN she still worried about her safety among Trump’s allies in the GOP, repeatedly downplaying the insurgency.
Ms Greene told reporters on Ms Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday: “She’s a chicken, she doesn’t want to debate the Green New Deal. These members are cowards. They must defend their legislation to the people. It is pathetic.
