After CJ Pearson took to twitter and referred to New York Representative Nydia Velasquez as the woman next to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the congresswoman got upset and went after Pearson.
A pro-Trump teen pundit said he would prefer to talk about “issues I care about” rather than fight with Democratic New York Rep. Nydia Velazquez, who went after him on social media, on “Fox & Friends” Sunday.
“I would have loved to have a discussion with the congresswoman about issues I care about, such as education, about reining in the national deficit which is $21 trillion, which is continuously kicked down the can by the leaders of today that my generation is going to have to pay back,” 16-year-old CJ Pearson said Sunday. “I would have loved to have that conversation with her, but instead she threatened and belittled me. It was classless and beneath the office that she holds.”
Velazquez told Pearson that “you’re right to be afraid of us” Tuesday after he referred to her as “the woman next to” Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet about the State of the Union address.
“Hi CJ Pearson, I’m not ‘the woman sitting next to her,'” Velazquez wrote on Twitter Tuesday night. “[Ocasio-Cortez] and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you’re right to be afraid of us. But you should learn my name.”
