Squad Dems Pull Desperate Political Stunt
(RepublicanNews.org) – Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) joined Squad members and other House Democrats outside the Supreme Court to protest on behalf of abortion rights. The demonstration blocked traffic, leading Capitol Police to intervene. The incident resulted in authorities arresting AOC and Omar, but the two women pulled a bizarre stunt by pretending police had handcuffed them.
Law enforcement escorted AOC away from the crowd, and during that time, she held her hands behind her back, similar to someone in cuffs. The Squad member raised her fist in solidarity at one point, showing she wasn’t actually bound, only to go back to pretending that she was.
She's pretending to be handcuffed, does a power fist, and goes back to pretending to be handcuffed. https://t.co/4aNVsX4F4z

Her bad acting has fired up the right, and many are taking the opportunity to criticize the lawmaker. Representative Omar didn’t have an officer near her as she walked toward AOC’s direction, but she still acted as though she wore handcuffs as well. Images and videos of the two Democrats quickly went viral on Twitter, with many people making fun of the women for their act.
Ilhan Omar faked being handcuffed too lmfaooo

Still, why did the lawmakers pantomime restraints? What did they gain from it? Did they think they might score points with their bases, despite it being obvious they were faking?
