'She Ain't Worth It': Ocasio-Cortez Zings Taylor Greene As Lawmakers Go At It

The exchange was one of several testy moments outside the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.

Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) got into a shouting match outside the Capitol on Wednesday. The two yelled until Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) stepped in to defuse the situation with a shot at Greene.

“She ain’t worth it, bro,” Ocasio-Cortez said, tapping Bowman on the shoulder. “She ain’t worth it, bro.”

The moment was captured from different angles by reporters for CNN and The Daily Beast:

Bowman and Ocasio-Cortez had just finished heckling indicted Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), who was speaking to reporters on the Capitol steps shortly after he survived an expulsion motion.

Santos last week was charged with multiple counts of fraud and money laundering. He has pleaded not guilty. Santos ― already the subject of bipartisan calls to resign over his extensive lies ― faced renewed calls to step down after his arrest.

“Kick him out!” Bowman yelled from the steps, telling Santos to “have some dignity” and “resign.”

“You gotta go,” Ocasio-Cortez added.

Santos called Bowman “deranged.”

Greene’s contribution to the debate with Bowman: “Impeach Biden.”
