Oh, how this is triggering the cultists:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) first speech from the House floor quickly became C-SPAN’s most-viewed Twitter video of any remarks by a House lawmaker, drawing 1.16 million viewers in just over 12 hours.
C-SPAN’s communications director, Howard Mortman, shared the results on his Twitter feed Thursday afternoon, one day after Ocasio-Cortez gave her first House floor speech.
In her roughly three-minute speech, Ocasio-Cortez declared that the ongoing partial shutdown is not about the president’s demands for border wall funding but “the erosion of American democracy.”
Watch the speech.
