Rep. (D-N.Y.) blamed right-wing media this week for the death threats she said she receives on a daily basis.
The freshman lawmaker told the that “, that’s directly correlated to the amount of violent targeted threats we get.”
Ocasio-Cortez said there was “clearly a correlation” between the intensity of the critical coverage of her on conservative cable network and far-right media outlet “and all those folks and the amount of threats that we get.”
She feels “safest when I’m home” in the Bronx, she added, and revealed how Capitol Police had now advised her against sharing her schedule due to the ongoing threat to her security.
