AOC cranks up the dramatics as she talks about the moment Capitol police were knocking on her door during the riots.
She said with nobody identifying who was there, it sounded “like someone was trying to break the door down.”
She hid in the bathroom.
“Then I just start to hear these yells of, ‘Where is she? Where is she?,'” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This was the moment where I thought everything was over.”
AOC claimed she thought she was going to die.
“If this was the journey that my life was taking, that I felt that things were going to be OK,” she recalled, wiping tears from her eyes in an Emmy-worthy performance.
“I had fulfilled my purpose.”
She actually criticized the police officer who came to her aid.
“He was looking at me with a tremendous amount of anger and hostility,” she said. “We couldn’t read if this was a good situation or a bad situation.”
