A confrontation took place between elderly Florida Republican Representative Ted Yoho and his colleague New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio Cortez on the Capitol steps where Yoho is likely to have used derogatory remarks to the young Democrat Cortez.
According to a reporter of The Hill Yoho told Cortez that her recent comments on poverty and policing were ‘disgusting’ and also called her ‘out of your freaking mind’ (!). As Cortez responded that Yoho was rude, his immediate remark was calling her ‘a *f-word* bitch’ (!)
Yoho on Wednesday denied that he made any such comment on the House floor and said the words were ‘attributed’ to him by the press. Cortez took the following day to confirm that Yoho indeed used such words.
"I am two years younger than Mr. Yoho's youngest daughter. I am someone's daughter too...My father, thankfully, is not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter," Cortez said.
