As Twitchy told you earlier, Ben Shapiro’s debate challenge to left-wing rock star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was met with the “Democrat Socialist” candidate from New York comparing the offer to getting catcalled:
RUUUN AWAAAY! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez DRAGGED for comparing Ben Shapiro's debate offer to a CATCALL https://t.co/ln1KkIHCht

Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.
And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one. pic.twitter.com/rsD17Oq9qe

Consider Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan a fan of that response:

That cheering sums up the media in 2018 nicely.
Twitter has done a lot to expose the level of bias and insulation among the mainstream press. Imagine how clueless you have to be to think that was a good response by AOC.
Remember Margaret was the public editor for the NYT. https://t.co/5PIOP6Z8FP

Lol "preach" about being a victim when you're not a victim. Does nothing to the victims of actual sexism, or anything.

You could almost hear the applause.

So a male extends an offer to debate a female political candidate who, oddly enough, compares it to men catcalling women … & creepy Margaret @Sulliview responds with "preach"? No doubt the Woodward/Bernstein Washington Post is mighty proud. https://t.co/3GG83gam2o

Look, a 'columnist' who thinks a debate challenge is akin to cat calling.
Hard to tell if they're both stupid or dishonest. Maybe both. https://t.co/wbR9Mj72GJ
