Sen. Fetterman hits back at AOC’s suggestion he’s a bully after House clash: ‘That’s absurd’

Sen. John Fetterman, D-Penn., hit back at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday after she suggested he was a bully for comparing the House of Representatives to “The Jerry Springer Show.”

“Oh, well, of course, that‘s absurd. I was just simply responding to the kind of chaos and everything that Rep. Greene started as well. And if everyone on the committee was proud of what they‘ve produced, they are entitled to their opinion or if they feel that this is the kind of a video that you want to send to a classroom of 8th grade civics kind of students across America,” Fetterman said, responding to CNN’s Jake Tapper. “That’s their choice.”

Following a clash between Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and on Thursday, Fetterman quipped that the House of Representatives was worse than “The Jerry Springer Show.” 

Ocasio-Cortez shot back at Fetterman, writing on social media, “I stand up to bullies, instead of becoming one.”
