AOC Pushes Back Hard On GOP's Fake 'Handcuffs Scandal'

On Tuesday, 17 House Democrats were arrested for protesting outside the Supreme Court over their disastrous ruling to overturn of Roe V Wade.

There were 35 arrests made by the Capitol police at the protest.

Rep. Omar tweeted
, "Today I was arrested while participating in a civil disobedience action with my fellow Members of Congress outside the Supreme Court. I will continue to do everything in my power to raise the alarm about the assault on our reproductive rights!"

But if you tuned into Fox News, right wing Twitter, or any other conservative outlet, the focus was not about the horrendous decision by the Supreme Court that takes a away the right for women to control their own bodies.

Instead, MAGA and the wingnuts once again tried to distract, obfuscate and confuse their viewers away from that monumental decision to focus on a faux scandal about handcuffs.

(Check out the 1:14 of the above video. If AOC was faking then she busted herself in a few seconds which is ridiculous.)

The Democratic lawmakers made their point very effectively.
