Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Good For Ratings

In an interview Sunday with the Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery," the New York Democrat said she suspended her personal Facebook account and was scaling back on all social media, which she described as a "public health risk" because it can lead to "increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism". "Do you believe this should affect US policy to the state of Israel?" co-host Michael Isikoff asked.

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, who burst onto the national stage after defeating a high-ranking incumbent, said her departure from Facebook was a "big deal" because the platform was crucial to her campaign. She said later in March that "I think what's tough is impeachment is something that I openly support, but it's also just the reality of having votes in the Senate to pursue that".

"We are pleased Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recognizes she is NOT a leader on Israel in Congress", the group said in a statement.

"I hope to play a facilitating role in this conversation and a supportive role in this conversation", she added. In late March, she introduced a resolution to begin to do just that, which would initiate an investigation into whether Trump had committed impeachable offenses.

In 2017, McCollum, D-Minn., introduced the Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act, which recognized the rights of Palestinians and called for confirmation that USA taxpayer money would not go to military detention of Palestinian children.

A spokeswoman for Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez's office told the Lexington Herald-Leader's Washington Bureau that she does not plan on apologizing.

It's an especially fraught issue for Ocasio-Cortez, whose congressional district spans parts of the two teams' home boroughs, the Bronx and Queens. "I grew up with that Yankees dream team, like, [Derek] Jeter, [Jorge] Posada, like, Mariano Rivera", she said.
