On a day in which #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett is trending, please never forget the time that @AOC staged a photo shoot dressed in all white at a parking lot to spread lies about immigrant children in cages.

- ‘#AlexandriaOcasioSmollett’ Trends On Twitter After NY Rep Rejects Claims She Wasn’t At Capitol During Riots
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
UPDATE: Douglass Braff reports that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit back at claims she lied about her experience during the pro-Trump Capitol riots.
“This is the latest manipulative take on the right. They are manipulating the fact that most people don’t know the layout the Capitol complex. We were all on the Capitol complex – the attack wasn’t just on the dome. The bombs Trump supporters planted surrounded our offices too,” she wrote.
Following reports that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s (D-N.Y.) was not in the U.S. Capitol Building and in her Cannon Office Building office on January 6, the hashtag “AlexandriaOcasioSmollett” has been trending on Twitter, with conservatives referencing disgraced actor Jussie Smollett’s staged hate crime in 2019. Here are some popular tweets using the hashtag:
AOC Wasn't Even in the Capitol Building During Her 'Near Death' Experience.
What actually happened?

.@AOC made clear she didn’t know who was at her door. Breathless attempts by media to fan fictitious news flames are dangerous.
My office is 2 doors down. Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Is there nothing MSM won’t politicize? pic.twitter.com/Tl1GiPSOft
