AOC Rebukes Ted Cruz In Childish Manner After Texas Senator Tried To Find Common Ground On Key Issue

Wall Street pulled a fast one on the little guy and the fallout was fast and furious and for a precious few minutes, the outrage was bipartisan.

AOC called for hearings and Ted Cruz quickly agreed, “This is unacceptable. We now need to know more about Robinhood’s decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock while hedge funds are freely able to trade the stock as they see fit. As a member of the Financial Services Cmte, I’d support a hearing if necessary,” AOC said while Ted responded, “fully agree.”

For a minute it seemed like our political parties would finally realize the sad truth – we all agree on 80% of the issues and DC needs to focus on those and get something done for America rather than bicker and try to divide us with the stuff we don’t agree on.

They had a proper villain in greedy Wall Street hedge funds and America hoped this would be the time they finally stop the BS and find solutions.

But AOC was not having it and in a childish move rejected Ted Cruz’s attempt at coming together. She said,

“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out. Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.”

“In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign. While you conveniently talk about moving on, a second Capitol police officer lost their life yesterday in the still-raging aftermath of the attacks you had a role in. This isn’t a joke. We need accountability, and that includes a new Senator from Texas.”

“You haven’t even apologized for the serious physical + mental harm you contributed to from Capitol Police & custodial workers to your own fellow members of Congress. In the meantime, you can get off my timeline & stop clout-chasing. Thanks.”

Ted said,

“You know, there’s a lot of partisan anger and rage on the Democratic side. It’s, it’s not healthy for our country, it’s certainly not conducive of healing or unity, but everyone has to decide how they want to interact with others.”

AOC responded: “Oh, there’s anger? Now why would there be anger that Cruz amplified known lies about our election that fueled an insurrection that cost ppl’s lives?

“What does he think the logical response to his lies should be? A hug? Maybe there’s anger bc his actions deserve accountability.”

She added, “We need healing + unity, but I will not take any responsibility for my actions, nor will I acknowledge the contributions my lies made to the violence or the harm that it caused, nor do I believe anyone should be held accountable. But if you’re mad at that you’re divisive.” – GOP

From Axios:

What they’re saying: Elected officials from both parties began responding on Thursday to the news that Robinhood was only allowing users to sell the Reddit-driven stocks, with several calling for hearings on the matter.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tweeted: “This is unacceptable. We now need to know more about Robinhood’s decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock while hedge funds are freely able to trade the stock as they see fit. As a member of the Financial Services Cmte, I’d support a hearing if necessary.”

Sen. Ted Cruz responded, “Fully agree,” to Ocasio Cortez’s tweet.

Donald Trump Jr., who is not elected but remains a popular figure within his father’s base, tweeted: “It took less than a day for big tech, big government and the corporate media to spring into action and begin colluding to protect their hedge fund buddies on Wall Street. This is what a rigged system looks like, folks!”

Where it stands: Shares of GameStop peaked at $469 before plummeting down $126 at around 11:30 am. It began to recover again around noon. A number of trading platforms said they were experiencing device disruptions.
