Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (R-NY) launched a hideous below-the-belt attack on Senator Lindsey Graham (D-SC) after he struck her with a small blow during his debate on Friday night against his Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison.
Graham calls out AOC during the debate
Ocaso-Cortez did not take it well that Graham called her in the debate and said Harrison supports her "radical agenda" on environmental issues. After Graham pointed out that he was a member of the non-partisan Climate Solutions Caucus, he warned that an "AOC path" could "destroy the economy."
I believe in saving our environment without destroying our economy. @AOC supports my opponent and there is a reason … #SCSen pic.twitter.com/P4vK5WJ8lY

AOC fires back
This didn't go well with Ocasio-Cortez, who held nothing back as she attacked Graham with anything she had in response to his comments about her.
"@LindseyGrahamSC I'm not sure if you believe in * anything * other than preserving yourself. & Let's not start with your climate denial, ”Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "I've seen a lot of spinelessness in DC, but you're at the forefront when it comes to wrinkling your own values like a wet napkin. SC deserves better."
This is not the first time Graham and Ocasio-Cortez have addressed it publicly in this way. Last year, Ocasio-Cortez launched an all-out attack on the Senator's character after daring to say, "We all know that AOC and this crowd are a group of communists … they are anti-Semitic. They are against America. "

"Aha @ LindseyGrahamSCThe biggest problem with Trump's racism is that it doesn't go far enough – Graham also wants to bring back the McCarthyism of the 1950s, ”wrote the new congresswoman. “GOP is doing this because they have no plan for our future. We fight for healthcare, education, good jobs and they have nothing. "
I see @ LindseyGrahamSC's biggest problem with Trump's racism is that it doesn't go far enough – Graham wants to bring back 1950s McCarthyism as well.
GOP does this because they have no plan for our future.

AOC attacks Trump
This comes days after Ocasio-Cortez attacked Trump on Twitter for bringing her up during his last debate with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
"If you look at his plan, his environmental plan, do you know who developed it?" Said Trump in the debate, referring to Biden. “AOC plus three. They don't know anything about the climate. "
Ocasio-Cortez replied on Twitter, which seems to be her favorite medium for battling lawmakers.
"If we have been identified as the # 1 public enemy of the worst president in modern history and an entire group of his sycophants, we must be doing something right," she tweeted.
