As Twitchy reported earlier, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was led away from a protest in front of the Supreme Court in invisible handcuffs, which she was kind enough to lend to Rep. Ilhan Omar. AOC is rightfully being dragged in her tweet about her arrest. We guess the mugshots weren’t ready in time for ABC News to use in its evening update, so we got these photos instead.

ABC can't honestly use these photos.
AOC and Ilhan Omar are PRETENDING to be handcuffed. https://t.co/bWgegzAYZH

@ABC doesn’t give a F. Neither does any of the old media. They quit pretending to be unbiased in 2016.

What a complete fucking lie with angles on these photos to make it look like they are cuffed.
And they wonder why they're called fake news.

Now show the pics from the side that show there are no handcuffs. How are you not humiliated?

Fake News. They were not handcuffed. Jut led away peacefully — with them laughing and joking the whole time.

Can anyone post the arrest records and which jails they were booked into?

You lunatics have learned nothing from the Trump era. Legit fake news.

“Officers then began arresting the demonstrators, though no handcuffs were seen,” ABC News reports.
