President Donald Trump tweeted out Thursday “AOC is a Wack Job” after a video surfaced of one of Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s supporters talking about “eating babies.”
During a town hall on climate change in New York Thursday, one of Ocasio-Cortez’s supporters stood up to ask the congresswoman a question. The woman went into a rant about “eating babies,” adding that the world only has a few months left.
After the event, Tump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted out the video and wrote that it “Seems like a normal AOC supporter to” him. The president re-tweeted his comment, adding his own thoughts on the freshman congresswoman.
“AOC is a Wack Job!” he wrote Thursday evening.

“We are not going to be here for much long because of the climate crisis,” the woman said. “We only have a few months left!”
“A Swedish professor [said] we can eat dead people, but that’s not fast enough,” the woman continued. “So I think your next campaign slogan has to be this: ‘We got to start eating babies!’ We don’t have enough time! Too much pollution, so we have to get rid of the babies! That’s a big problem. We need to eat the babies!’”
Ocasio-Cortez hit back at the president after his comment, tweeting that being a “Wack Job” is “better than being a criminal who betrays our country.” She commented earlier in the day about the town hall event and went after “right-wing” people for “mocking” the woman.
Ocasio-Cortez said the woman was perhaps “a woman in crisis,” and touted Medicare for All.
“We had a fabulous town hall tonight & I’ll be highlighting some moments from it,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “At one point I was concerned there was a woman in crisis & want to ensure we treat the situation compassionately. Let’s not mock or make a spectacle. &let’s work on Medicare for All!”
“This person may have been suffering from a mental condition and it’s not okay that the right-wing is mocking her and potentially make her condition or crisis worse. Be a decent human being and knock it off,” she added in another tweet.
