Democrat House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently rejected Ben Shapiro’s debate offer by comparing it to a catcall.

Earlier this week, Shapiro — a conservative commentator — offered Ocasio-Cortez $10,000 to her campaign if she agreed to debate him.

She posted a response Thursday, saying “just like catcalling…she doesn’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.”

This comes just weeks after the self-declared Democratic socialist sent out a tweet claiming Republicans are scared of her.

Shapiro responded to her rejection, saying discussion and debate are not bad intentions, however, slandering someone as a sexist catcaller is.
