A Florida rep reportedly referred to Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as a “fucking bitch” during a brief exchange Monday.

The remark was allegedly made by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) as he passed Ocasio-Cortez on the steps of the Capitol building Monday following a vote.

More from The Hill:

In a brief but heated exchange, which was overheard by a reporter, Yoho told Ocasio-Cortez she was “disgusting” for recently suggesting that poverty and unemployment are driving a spike in crime in New York City during the coronavirus pandemic.

“You are out of your freaking mind,” Yoho told her.

Ocasio-Cortez shot back, telling Yoho he was being “rude.”

The two then parted ways. Ocasio-Cortez headed into the building, while Yoho, joined by Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas), began descending toward the House office buildings. A few steps down, Yoho offered a parting thought to no one in particular.

“Fucking bitch,” he said.

The far-left Democrat said she was taken aback by Yoho’s insult.

“That kind of confrontation hasn’t ever happened to me — ever,” she said. “I’ve never had that kind of abrupt, disgusting kind of disrespect levied at me.”

Another congressman, Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas)b who was possibly close enough to hear the exchange told The Hill he didn’t hear Yoho’s remark, while Yoho himself said he had “No comment.”

On Twitter Tuesday, Cortez accused Rep. Williams of “lying,” claiming he “joined in w/ Yoho.”

She also stated she’d never spoken to Yoho before the exchange and added “’bitches’ get stuff done.’”
