Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) accused Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) of supporting GOP “voter suppression” on Monday over his refusal to back a key Democratic voting rights bill.
Ocasio-Cortez made the remark on Twitter while commenting on a retweet of a photo captioned “Today we are all @AOC.” The photo shows Ocasio-Cortez glaring at the back of Manchin’s head as he stood and clapped while former President Donald Trump delivered his 2019 State of the Union address.
“Just thinking about how after this photo ran Wall Street Journal columnists spent more time criticizing me for not smiling enough than asking Manchin precisely what areas of ‘common ground’ he had in mind when he stood up for the GOP,” tweeted Ocasio-Cortez. “Turns out voter suppression was one of them!”
