Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez promotes boycott of New York Post over Ilhan Omar cover

So does this count as a war on the press, too? Or is that only for Republicans?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as she does with all news stories, has made sure to insert herself into the center of the controversy over recent remarks made by Rep. Ilhan Omar that casually dismissed the significance of the terror attack on 9/11.

In addition to preposterously bashing Rep. Dan Crenshaw as someone who has never lifted a finger about terror (he lost an eye fighting it, for the record), AOC has been busy accusing both him and President Trump of inciting violence against Omar by reacting to her remarks and criticizing them.

Not content with that much attention, apparently, AOC has now also jumped on a boycott bandwagon in New York City, in which Yemeni American bodega owners and merchants are boing to boycott selling the newspaper over their controversial front page about the war of 9/11 words.

The Post cover image, seen below, ran on Thursday. The boycott is called for on Sunday.

With all that going on, Ocasio-Cortez still managed to fit comparing the situation to the holocaust into her busy pot-stirring schedule.
