(TeaParty.org) – It is an absolute crying shame that the Democratic darling, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has pathetically refused to debate Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro.
Not only would it produce enough Ben Shapiro thug life moments to last us a lifetime, it would also provide endless stuttering and flailing and airhead answers from the 28-year-old Democratic socialist, who has proven that even in the friendliest of interviews, she barely knows what she’s talking about.
Earlier this week, Shapiro tweeted out a request to Ocasio-Cortez to have her on his Sunday Special and talk about “everything under the sun.”
This was in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s claims that Shapiro and “Conservative Millennial” Allie Stuckey’s satirical videos that spliced Ocasio-Cortez’s particularly hilarious interview answers with footage of Shapiro and Stuckey, respectively, were indicative of a republican “fear” of the Ocasio-Cortez.
She is clearly unaware that she’s the best thing to happen to conservative commentary since Obama said he’d been to “58 states.”
Here was Shapiro’s clearly earnest offer to the young Congressional candidate:

Now, one thing you have to understand about Ocasio-Cortez is that she’s a progressive and a socialist, so intellectual debate is her kryptonite. Nay, she is much safer simply regurgitating Bernie Sanders’ talking points about the 1% and random intersectional appeals to victimhood than actually subjecting her ideas to scrutiny of any kind.
So, play the victim she did, pathetically, and embarrassingly, comparing Shapiro’s offer to “catcalling,” no doubt a complete affront to every woman who has ever been catcalled.
Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.

Well, Shaprio didn’t need to debate Ocasio-Cortez in person to absolutely slam her ridiculous excuse not to face the prominent commentator.
Speaking to Fox News he said:
While quipping that “catcalling must be very weird in Queens,” Shapiro accused people “on the left” of using a “defense in which anybody who requests a discussion or a debate must be evil by their very nature.”
“It’s catcalling because, I guess, if I suggest that I want to have a conversation, I’m demanding a response,” he said. “Well every request is a request. All she had to say here was, ‘Nah.’ That would’ve been fine, I mean she’s got that prerogative.”
Shapiro said there was “no question” that Ocasio-Cortez was playing the “victim card.”
“And the fact that she feels the necessity to go to this particular card, right, to play the ‘I’m a female and therefore I’m being victimized, this is like catcalling’ … the fact [that] she goes there instead of just saying ‘You know, I’m not interested in debate,’” Shapiro continued, “the reason she didn’t say the latter is because she didn’t want to look like she was afraid.”
He went on to say that he didn’t think there was “a lot of upside for her” to agree to the debate, saying she was unlikely to answer “questions well.”
“I mean, if she were to get into a discussion with somebody who asks her tough questions, I don’t think she has the information or the philosophy at her disposal to actually answer those questions well,” Shapiro said. “And she knows that, which is why her best move here would have been either to just ignore or to say no. And then everybody would’ve moved on with their life.”
However, “it turned into her invoking victim status,” he said.
