Alexandria Ocasio Cortez jokes 'I'm taller than Marjorie Taylor Greene' after rep calls her 'the little communist'

CONGRESSWOMAN Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pulled height rank against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after the Georgian referred to her as “the little Communist from New York City” and said she belonged behind bars. 

“First of all, I’m taller than her,” the New York rep tweeted at her Southern nemesis.

Her comeback followed Greene’s shots over the proverbial political bow on Saturday while she was warming up a Trump rally crowd in Wellington, Ohio.

Taylor Greene told the crowd at the Lorain County Fairgrounds on Saturday that the lawmaker, whom she referred to as “the little Communist from New York City” to a chorus of boos that soon diverged into a familiar chant usually reserved for former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. 

The crowd could be heard yelling in unison: “Lock her up! Lock her up!”

“Lock her up, too,” she agreed. “That’s a good idea.”

Then Taylor Greene continued her verbal insult. 

“She’s not an American,” Taylor Greene said. “She doesn’t embrace our American ways.”

The two firebrand lawmakers have been trading barbs recently in public, with Taylor Greene calling AOC a “terrorist” her stance on weapons sales to Israel.

In May the QAnon conspiracy pusher tweeted:  "AOC you’re responsible for attacks on Jewish people bc of your hate-Israel stance against Israel’s right to defend itself from terrorists Hamas, calling Israel an apartheid state, & supporting terrorist groups.”

Then AOC returned fire earlier this month questioning Taylor Greene’s faith after the Republican lawmaker suggested Covid must be man-made.

AOC tweeted: “Tell me you’ve never read the Bible without telling me you’ve never read the Bible.”

The comment had come after Taylor Greene questioned Covid-19 as naturally born: 

"I don't believe in that type of so-called science,” she told Steve Bannon.

"Why is there any need to create a virus that could spread rapidly through a population, make people sick and kill them? That’s a bioweapon.

"So we need to be very clear about what was the intent of Covid-19 and these viruses that they experiment with like some sort of Dr Frankenstein experiments."

Green's latest gripe against AOC first earned notoriety when footage emerged showing her shouting "stop being a baby" through Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's mailbox back in 2019.

The strange incident showed Taylor Greene screaming through the Democrat's mailbox."Stop being a baby and stop locking your door and come out and face the American citizens that you serve," she said, according to the footage, which was posted to YouTube.

And on May 12, AOC was accosted by Greene outside the House chambers.

Greene asked her why she supported "Antifa" and the Black Lives Matter movement.

“You don't care about the American people. Why do you support terrorists and antifa?" Greene asked.
