Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NT) freaked out online after CNN published a two years old video of a playful protest by then citizen Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) (who joined AOC in Congress in 2021) and a group of fellow Trump supporters talking to the then newly elected progressive political star Ocasio-Cortez through the mail slot of her locked Congressional office on Capitol Hill.
Greene is seen talking in a normal voice–not yelling or threatening– about several issues and throwing in a few mild insults. The protesters are also seen writing messages in the guest book stationed outside the office, including drawing a picture of a border wall. In a comment posted online Friday about the video, Ocasio-Cortez demanded House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy do something about Greene.
CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski characterized the protest as Greene “harassing” Ocasio-Cortez, “New: A since-deleted video from 2019 shows MTG harassing @AOC’s office through a locked door. Calling her “crazy eyes” and telling her through the office’s mailbox slot to “get rid of your diaper” while telling the office to open the door and come out.”

Ocasio-Cortez freaked out over the two years old video of a peaceful protest outside her office, demanding Kevin McCarthy do something about Greene, “The fact that Kevin McCarthy, the House @GOPLeader, stripped Justin Amash of all committee seats for criticizing Trump, but has worked to protect this person from consequences (including pretending he doesn’t see it) tells you this is happening with the support of GOP leadership.”

Greene upset Ocasio-Cortez this week by confronting her outside the House chamber over her support for terrorist groups Hamas and Antifa, and for ducking out on a debate on the Green New Deal.
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene confronted Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outside the House chamber on Wednesday afternoon. The incident, first reported by The Washington Post, was just the latest of several hostile confrontations the Georgia congresswoman has had with her Democratic colleagues, but her interactions with the New York Democrat predate Greene’s election to Congress in 2020.
During a February 2019 visit to congressional offices at the US Capitol with associates who include a man who would later enter the Capitol during the January 6 insurrection, Greene — then a conservative activist — can be seen taunting Ocasio-Cortez’s staff outside the congresswoman’s locked office by talking through a mailbox slot urging her to come out.
In the video, from a since-deleted Facebook Live of Greene’s that was saved by CNN’s KFile, Greene tells Ocasio-Cortez to “get rid of your diaper,” referring to the congresswoman’s office as a “day care.” Greene repeatedly indicates throughout her stream that security has been called on them.
“We’re going to go see, we’re going to visit, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Crazy eyes. Crazy eyes. Nutty. Cortez,” Greene says to the camera on the way to the congresswoman’s office, mispronouncing “Ocasio.”
…Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, I’m an American citizen. I pay your salary through the taxes that you collect for me through the IRS because I’m a taxpaying citizen of the United States,” Greene says, noting elsewhere in the video that members of Congress are “employees” who “work for us.”
“So you need to stop being a baby and stop locking your door and come out and face the American citizens that you serve,” she says. “If you want to be a big girl, you need to get rid of your diaper and come out and be able to talk to the American citizens. Instead of having to use a flap, a little flap. Sad.”
…As they leave Ocasio-Cortez’s office, Greene says, “Bye. Bye. Bye, AOC. Ocasio-Cortez. Bye, bye, baby. Bye-bye, baby. Bye-bye, little baby girl. Ocasio-Cortez– she went and hid. She couldn’t take it,” said Greene, mispronouncing Ocasio-Cortez’s name again.
She and her companions then rearranged the sticky notes placed on Ocasio-Cortez’s office wall and signed the guest book outside the office by drawing a picture of a border wall before leaving to go to another member’s office.

UPDATE: Greene responded to Ocasio-Cortez, “The fact that you are openly supporting terrorists Hamas firing rockets into our ally Israel and supporting Antifa/BLM Violent riots against Americans should disqualify you from being a member of Congress. You keeping lists of Trump admin and supporters is terrifying. #JihadSquad”
