New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found herself in the middle of another mess.
Ocasio-Cortez then scrambled into damage control mode.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez melted down when she got caught in this huge hoax.
Ocasio-Cortez and her allies know the Democrat Party base is dispirited heading into the midterm election.
Liberals recognize Biden’s failures on every front and don’t have much enthusiasm about turning out.
Ocasio-Cortez and her allies tried to flip that dynamic where they staged a protest at the Supreme Court over the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade where the police supposedly arrested them.
But the video of Ocasio-Cortez being “arrested” turned out to be a fraud as the police never actually handcuffed Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez put her hands behind her back to pretend like she was arrested but slipped up and waved to the crowd exposing the farce for all to see.
Hilarious. Video by @DouglasKBlair shows AOC feigning a walk of fame with hands “tied” behind her back… only it’s fake. She’s NOT handcuffed and she raises her fist in defiance at 10 secs in.pic.twitter.com/5NHkAjzX3A

After conservatives mocked Ocasio-Cortez on social media for her fake arrest Ocasio-Cortez lashed out on the same medium.
On Twitter Ocasio-Cortez claimed she wasn’t faking being arrested but merely exercising best safety practices to avoid the police beating her or claiming she resisted arrest – as if a high-profile sitting member of Congress had to worry about a rogue cop attacking her in full view of the public and cameras.
“No faking here. Putting your hands behind your back is a best practice while detained, handcuffed or not, to avoid escalating charges like resisting arrest,” Ocasio-Cortez posted.
Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her spin claiming Republicans invented a conspiracy theory about her faking an arrest.

Ocasio-Cortez – as well as Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar who also faked being handcuffed – needed to salvage the situation.
Anyone who watched the video knew what was going on.
Ocasio-Cortez wanted to make it seem like the police were oppressing innocent women protesting for their so-called “constitutional right to an abortion.”
Ever since the 1960s liberals want to turn everything into the new civil rights movement to absorb the moral authority of the fight against Jim Crow through association.
Abortion – which is the taking of an innocent human life – falls far short of that standard.
Even knowing this, Ocasio-Cortez still tried to pull it off.
And it failed in miserable fashion.
