Self-described democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro’s debate or discussion offer on Thursday, just minutes after The Daily Wire published a report documenting her refusal to respond.

Shapiro offered to make a $10,000 donation to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign on Wednesday if she agreed to a debate or discussion on his Sunday Special — or, if she preferred, to use the debate to raise money for charity.

“Miss Ocasio-Cortez, I’m really excited that you’ve been elevated to that position and I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues. You’ve noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you,” Shapiro said.

“Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, I’m willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign, today, for you to come on our Sunday special,” he continued. “We can have an hour long conversation about all the topics under the sun, really probe your belief system.”

In her response, Ocasio-Cortez accused Shapiro of being an “entitled” sexist “catcaller” who has “bad intentions.”

“Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions,” she wrote. “And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”

Shapiro responded: “Discussion and debate are not ‘bad intentions.’ Slandering someone as a sexist catcaller without reason or evidence does demonstrate cowardice and bad intent, however.”

      She isn’t either one ,she is just an uneducated liberal socialist who is so stupid she couldn’t even have a discussion with a 4 year old. all her interviews proves she know nothing about everything. I would be surprised if she can even dress herself without help from an adult. Probably a good thing she doesn’t try an debate someone with an IQ over 10 as she would be shown up as the bobble head she really is.

    And are we surprised? Of course she cannot have a discussion with Ben–let alone an actual debate. But she can’t say her refusal is because of her extreme ignorance about political issues, so she has to employ the left’s MO-label the other person and hope it sticks.

    Just when I was convinced she was in the same IQ bracket as Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi….she shows the slightest glimmer of common sense….refusing to reveal herself as the uneducated, know-nothing she’s been parading on talk shows. It is indeed difficult to contemplate the intelligence and common sense of any citizen who would vote for someone so patently unqualified yet arrogant.

    Her college should repossess her econ degree based on her demonstrated ignorance in several venues. She can afford to screw off with socialism and a low level job now, because mom and dad will leave her a sizeable bounty when they pass.

    Within 10 minutes, Shapiro would make mince-meat of this ignorant millennial. She won ONE primary election, in a state and county which is 85%(!) Democrat, (read: perfect [Democratic] storm). She does not deserve, nor should she be getting all this unabashed promotion. None-the-less, she is currently the recipient of this unearned hype for one reason – the globalists want to promote her and her (socialist) agenda HARD, to see what type of acceptance it will receive, and what the demographics of that acceptance is. You will continue to see her pushed into the spotlight, no matter her blunders…and there will be multiple, consistent blunders in the future. But they will be suppressed, white-washed, and stifled by those who are experts at such things – because the socialist agenda is too important to the globalists to NOT promote. So, the unearned promotions will continue, and will only stop when the next election transpires – and when she’s TROUNCED by her opponent…

    In her response, Ocasio-Cortez accused Shapiro of being an “entitled” sexist “catcaller” who has “bad intentions.”

    You’re damned right, Shapiro had “bad intentions”–he would have (metaphorically) stripped her bare and exposed her idiocy for the world to see–Just like the emperor in HC Andersen’s tale, Ocasio-Cortez is a bare-assed elitist moron with absolutely NOTHING to contribute (of a positive nature).

    In future comments, please don’t refer to this individual as a “bartender”. After 21 years behind a bar, I would have fired her in an instant based upon the idiotic drivel she contrives to be as accurate facts.

    Great bartenders are, and always will be, highly intelligent individuals. They have to be in order to give superior customer service.

    (unless you work at a “dive”.
    However, I’ve seen more honest, and intelligent, even if it was a second rate bar)

    Her response to an honest debate, is nothing more than childish, from a child like individual that was told to many times in her life that she was “pretty”.

    She’s using her looks to further an agenda that she knows very little about. If anything at all.

    The problem with individuals who try and aspire to be great on looks alone, will find that in the end, they are rarely taken seriously.

    I hope her disillusionment can be cured after she loses.

    I know of one other that suffers vastly from the same symptoms as this young lady, her name is Hillary Clinton.

This socialist economic nonsense has never ever worked anywhere not here,not Cuba,not Russia not anywhere,in the event you don’t believe me you simply need to go to Venezuela or Cuba and ask the people there if it’s working out for them….. don’t ask the politicians because it’s great for them they control all of it so it’s good for them…… maybe Ms.Dizzyo Cortez needs to go see for herself

    bottom line she is actually stupid.
