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.
Republicans are so scared of me that they’re faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can’t deal with reality anymore.
Here’s one bonafide truth:

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