GOP Rep. Nancy Mace, who has an office that is located two doors down from Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has come out and stated that AOC was not actually inside the Capitol building during the siege that happened at the beginning of January.
Mace stated this while slamming the news media for playing along to help push AOC’s claims.
On January 6, Mace posted on Twitter that she had left her office in the Cannon Building: “Just evacuated my office in Cannon due to a nearby thereat,” she said. “New we’re seeing protesters assaulting Capitol Police.”
RedState is reporting:
AOC wasn’t even in the Capitol building where all the action was going down. If she was in her office, she was in the Cannon Building which is nearby, but a different building. But of course, many didn’t get the logistics and just assumed that she was in the Capitol building.
According to Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who has an office in the same hall as AOC, two doors away, there were never any rioters in their hall so there was never any physical danger from rioters coming in at any point.
Here’s more from the Daily Wire:
“[Ocasio-Cortez] made clear she didn’t know who was at her door,” the Republican wrote, captioning a post from Newsweek. “Breathless attempts by media to fan fictitious news flames are dangerous.”
“My office is 2 doors down,” Mace underscored. “Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it.”
“Is there nothing MSM (mainstream media) won’t politicize?”

AOC claimed that she ran back into her office and then hid behind the bathroom door. She then said that members of the mob banged against the door and she says she believed “this was the moment where I thought everything was over.”
“And the weird thing about moments like these is that you lose all sense of time,” she continued. “In retrospect, maybe it was 4 seconds. Maybe it was 5 seconds, maybe it was 10 seconds. Maybe it was one second, I don’t know. It felt like my brain was able to have so many thoughts.”
“In between the screams and the yells,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, “I mean, I thought I was going to die.”
It really seems that AOC is what we like to call a “narcissist,” meaning that every little thing always has to have her at the center of it. It’s why she insists on weighing in on everything all the time and why she does so many livestreams on Instagram.
She lives for this kind of stuff.
