As Twitchy recently reported, the word is out that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who claimed that Sen. Ted Cruz almost had her murdered on Jan. 6 during the Capitol breach and said in a recent Instagram post, “I thought I was going to die,” was not actually in the Capitol at the time but rather hiding in her office in the Cannon Building, which is connected to the Capitol by a tunnel but was not breached.

People have been posting maps showing the distance between the Cannon Building and the Capitol to show that Ocasio-Cortez was not in danger, but she’s pushing back:

That hashtag, #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett, assumes that actor Jussie Smollett wasn’t attacked and nearly lynched outside a Chicago Subway at 2 a.m. by two Trump supporters shouting, “This is MAGA country.”

We’re hearing that the hashtag is misogynist, so stop using it, OK?
