Ocasio-Cortez Actually Compared Ben Shapiro’s Challenge to ‘Catcalling’

Democratic socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is running for a House district seat in New York, has been a lightening rod in American politics since her candidacy first took off. (Time will tell whether she’s a flash in the pan or not.)

But after a number of instantly-classic gaffes — such as her view that unemployment is so low in the Trump economy because people are working “two jobs” — she’s grabbed more attention than she bargained for, perhaps.

Editor Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire, for example, riffed on a CRTV faux interview with Allie Beth Stuckey in his own satirical take on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s awkward interviews.

And Shapiro offered her a challenge earlier this week: If she would appear with him for a one-hour discussion on his “Ben Shapiro Sunday Special” podcast, he would donate $10,000 to her congressional campaign — or she could use the debate as a vehicle to donate to charity.

Ryan Saavedra of The Daily Wire tweeted about the $10,000 challenge to the Democratic candidate, noting she had so far refused to accept it.

Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.

And then Ocasio-Cortez responded: “Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions. And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.“

The tweet skyrocketed by Thursday night, garnering over a 118,000 “likes” within 12 hours.

It’s obvious why: She drew an unflattering analogy to being tweeted.

Liz Wheeler, a One America News host, fired back:

You know what’s bad faith? Accusing conservatives of not wanting to debate you, then pretending @benshapiro sexually whistled at you… because he asked you to debate.

FYI my team has also asked you multiple times to come on my show & debate. And you won’t. https://t.co/kTh7v4x64y

And Free Beacon reporter Natalie Johnson had her own fiery retort.

For one, this statement is the biggest disservice to women who want to be taken seriously in politics, but more importantly, you’re undermining women who have been sexually harassed. How dare you.

Townhall and The Federalist contributor Erielle Davidson gave a fierce rebuttal.
