Reporter: GOP’s Verbal Slur Against Rep. Ocasio-Cortez ‘Touched A Nerve’ | The Last Word | MSNBC


    1. @Gooniddly You hoping I forgot the F-Trump tirades and remarks against Republicans that almost got them censured if Pelosi didn’t spin it away? “But they were so young.” Yeah right.

  1. I never heard of Ted Yoho before this incident, and I suspect that after November, we will never hear from him again.

    1. Its kind of a dead issue in that respect. He’s already stated months ago that he wasn’t going to run for reelection this November.

    1. Actually, DRUMPF 😈 has set the bar pretty low!! But these GOP 😈 CREATURE 😈 DEMONS 😈 are really trying to out do him!! Their mother’s must be SO PROUD!!

  2. Called a fellow congresswoman names and proceeded to lie and used his wife and dtrs as an excuse and shield. Just because you have a wife and daughters doesn’t automatically make you respectful to women.

    1. Pete Cerda I’d call her a willow tree as she can bend no matter what misogynistic storms she has to weather. And she will always be rooted in truth and will still be left standing when Yoho gets uprooted or cut down by voters soon.

    1. Not till the whole of the gop and their leader, the pres, come out in support of yoho. Then the audio and or video will drop. Perfect campaign material. You can’t by op-research this good. Worth millions, probably billions.

  3. [UPDATED] How many Americans have to die before the government start doing something real? US with per capita healthcare spending twice of Germany’s has 433 (so far and rising faster) deaths per million from coronavirus compared to Germany’s 109.

  4. I have been in her shoes and its pretty terrifying when you’re taught to respect your elders and they use that as a badge to talk to their prey like that. My bully didnt like being challenged when they are wrong by any race of women. I feel bad for his wife if he is this way to strong women he works with I only hope he dont take out on his family

  5. Nothing new, that’s what republican men do when a woman doesn’t agree with them. All you have to do is look at the comment section on any video on YouTube.

  6. Having grown up in a family where there was violence and being the victim of spousal abuse I have seen men like him ( like his behavior) the tend to be abusuve to their wives and children behind closed doors they treat their wives as inferior people. Good for her to speak out for herself and many many women and young girls who have or will face thus in life by sime men. Bravo. Thus is bullying plain and simple and he is trying to put a modern progressive eoman in her “place”.

  7. Steny Hoyer sold the women out; he accepted yoho’s “apology” and said AOC should too. That happens too often.

    1. Who is Steny Hoyer to accept that non-apology for someone else? The fact that he’s a man who is effectively patting AOC on the head and patronising her – demonstrating her point yet again – is an even bigger cheek!

  8. If he said something like that in front of a male member of her family he wouldn’t be able to apologize with his jaw wired!

  9. If he had actually said “I apologise”, rather than “I apologise, but I can’t apologise for my passion or loving god”.

  10. Once he resorted to offensive language and derogatory names he lost the moral high ground. He exposed his emotional maturity by shielding himself behind his wife and daughters with his insincere forced apology.

    1. They had some choice words for EACH OTHER. They were less than cordial. He never said those words to her face.
      What’s the big deal????

    2. @Wayne Hasch No big deal using derogatory and offensive language to describe an elected official. No Code of Conduct required of elected Representatives. I’m sure he’d welcome the opportunity for his wife and daughters to recipients of vileness and bigotry especially since there’s no problem.
