AOC has lost her mind.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has warned that if the Republicans were to win back the U.S. House of Representatives, they would be able to overturn future presidential elections.
“If we lose the House, this is no joke,” Ocasio-Cortez noted during a town hall meeting on Wednesday. “January 6 was a trial run, and a lot of people don’t seem to understand that.”
“It was a trial run, and they’re going to come back,” she warned. “Here’s the technicality of what happened on January 6: the only reason it wasn’t worse was because Democrats had the House and they didn’t have the votes in the House.”
“If they take the House, then they have the votes to not authorize and legitimize the presidential election, whatever the results are,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
In 2020 after then-President Trump had repeatedly alleged that the presidential election had been stolen, thousands of his supporters left his rally at Freedom Plaza and stormed into the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. At the time, lawmakers swiftly evacuated the Capitol and the certification of the Electoral College was briefly put on hold. Rioters even broke through police lines and entered the Capitol.
During the incident, there were several deaths, including the deaths of a few police officers. Most elected Republican officials condemned the incident even if previously they had voted to object to the election result in their states.
At the same time, Democrats condemned the GOP for attempting to roll back voting rights.
In January, President Biden was hesitant to say that he would acknowledge the results of the 2022 midterm elections if the electoral reform bills were to fail in Congress.
“The increase of the prospect of it being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these reforms passed,” Biden said.
