Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX), on being removed from the Board of Trustees for Texas Christian University (TCU) because he voted against certifying Joe Biden as president
U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responding to Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) who claimed he wasn’t aware of a virulent exchange between Ocasio-Cortez and U.S. Congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL).
In a confrontation overheard by a reporter Monday outside the U.S. Capitol this week, Yoho allegedly called Ocasio-Cortez “disgusting” and told her “you are out of your freaking mind” for describing poverty as a root cause of crime, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, he supposedly denounced Ocasio-Cortez as a “fucking bitch,” out of earshot, according to “The Hill”, which first reported on the exchange.
Adding to the novella-style drama, Williams apparently stood nearby, but declared ignorance. “I was actually thinking, as I was walking down the stairs, I was thinking about some issues I’ve got in my district that need to get done,” Williams said. “I don’t know what their topic was. There’s always a topic, isn’t there?”
