Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stopped using Facebook due to 'public health risk'

WASHINGTON DC- APRIL 10 Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez listens during a House Financial Services Committee hearing

Barr called on her to apologize for the tweet.

The organization said Fox News hosts and analysts "go on extended, agressively [sic] angry rants about her".

Her comments about "Game of Thrones" came at the end of a Yahoo News interview in which she also discussed impeaching President Trump, the 2020 presidential race, threats against her fellow freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, among other topics. Monday night, McClatchy reports.

But Ocasio-Cortez said she believed both as someone with a large following and an individual user, she felt social media could have a negative personal impact on herself.

Ocasio-Cortez began by questioning the 25,000 number: "So here's a couple of things on that". But I think it has a lot of effects on older people.

Over its six-week study, Media Matters found the network's pundits and analysts repeatedly railed against Ocasio-Cortez's proposal to tackle climate change and fuel a greener economy with a "Green New Deal", slammed her as a hypocrite for traveling by auto and plane and attempted to pit her against members of her own party to point to divisions in the Democratic Party.

Back to Ocasio-Cortez: "Does that sound like, (laughing) realistic?" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, who made headlines for remarks trivializing 9/11. It's also unclear if the book deal will be resurrected at a later date or whether she continues working with the top Hollywood talent agency that reportedly represents the likes of George Clooney, Emma Watson, and Brad Pitt. In June of past year, ahead of her November election victory, Ocasio-Cortez said she would support impeaching Trump.

Sitting House members are prohibited from accepting book advances.

"I think about it every once in a while, but ... this is pretty hard already", she said. "There's still a future for coal but we need to make sure we're debating the right people on that issue".

After Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, a former Navy SEAL, responded to Omar's comments, calling them "unbelievable", Ocasio-Cortez attacked him on Twitter.

Another user wrote: 'Peak @AOC Telling a combat veteran that lost his eye FIGHTING terrorists in AFGHANISTAN to "do something" to help against terrorism'.
