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:

This isn’t a fact check at all. Your arrows aren’t accurate. They lie about where the mob stormed & place them further away than it was.
You also fail to the convey *multiple* areas people were trying to storm. It wasn’t 1. You also failed to show tunnels. Poor job all around.

The ratio here.
How embarrassing for #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett

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.”
#4 trend in USA 😂

Oh man #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett is trending right now, after everyone is finding out that AOC was not inside the capitol on 1/6!
— Luke Rudkowski (@Lukewearechange) February 3, 2021
AOC tried to make the Capitol Riots about herself and the heifer wasn’t even in the building.
That’s why we call her #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett.
— Lavern Spicer (@lavern_spicer) February 3, 2021
The building AOC was in on January 6th wasn't breached or targeted by the rioters.
AOC was never in danger.#AlexandriaOcasioSmollett

Someone at Twitter is about to receive an angry phone call from Sandy Ocasio's congressional office in the Cannon House Office Building—which, by the way, is not in the Capitol.#AlexandriaOcasioSmollett pic.twitter.com/BCpRoDLWX2

Yup.. the feigned fear for her life was going to eventually catch up with her. #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett is starting to look very appropriate.

#AlexandriaOcasioSmollett trending is a sign that 2021 may actually be an improvement over 2020.

It's ok, you liberals defending AOC.
It's ok to admit she punked you. It's ok to admit you thought she was actually in the Capitol.
She took you because you wanted to get took.
It's ok to admit that. Just learn from it.#AlexandriaOcasioSmollett

We’re hearing that the hashtag is misogynist, so stop using it, OK?
AOC says reports she wasn’t in Capitol during riot are bogus because ‘most people don’t know the layout’ (actually they do) https://t.co/laV5yOI7ws
