Conservative commentator and provocateur Ben Shapiro wants to take on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic nominee for Congress from New York. In a tweet, Shapiro said that he would donate to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign if she agreed to hold a debate with him. There’s been no reaction from the Ocasio-Cortez twitter account as yet. The relationship between Ocasio-Cortez has been troubled, to say the least, with Shapiro poking fun at the Democratic Socialist star online and in videos.

I’d be happy to give money to her campaign for a debate. If we instead raised money for charity to make this happen, I’ll bet we could easily raise $50,000. https://t.co/H1Ubb5FWo5

Whenever the Right is being particularly feisty towards me, the first thing I do is check to see which bad news of theirs they’re trying to distract from.
