Let’s pause to remember the trauma that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez felt a year ago today. It was reported by Newsweek that insurrectionists had entered her office where she was hiding in the bathroom, except she was in an entirely different office building from the Capitol. And it was security who was knocking on the door of her office, which no one entered, it was revealed. People pounced on Rep. Nancy Mace after she said that insurrectionists were never in the hallway where Ocasio-Cortez’s office was. Still, AOC went on Instagram and announced, “I thought I was going to die …. I did not know if I was going to make out of that day alive.”

As Twitchy reported, Jason Rezaian published a piece in the Washington Post this week about the trauma that journalists feel but don’t talk about, and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made sure to recognize the trauma that is still felt by journalists a year later:

Even war correspondents don’t get this kind of attention.

We remember video of that Black Lives Matter activist leading a CNN crew into the Capitol Building. They didn’t seem too traumatized.
