Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stopped using Facebook due to 'public health risk'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y. listens during a House Financial Services Committee hearing with leaders of major banks Wednesday

So the newly elected representative who is best known for her near-constant presence on social media now says it's a public health risk.

'I can understand why people would be excited by that - this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama's vice president, ' Ocasio-Cortez said.

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's name is on the lips of almost everyone at Fox News.

"I said when Omar made her first comments about all about the Benjamin's, referring to Jews, in America, I said that that was worthy of condemning by name", he said.

While she's still using Facebook to enlist support for her Green New Deal and to raise funds, Ocasio-Cortez says she has suspended her personal account on the Website. "Can you imagine if no one ends up on the throne and they transition to democracy?" she said. She added, "Everyone always cites this number and it is nearly completely unsubstantiated and it nearly feels like it only comes from Amazon".

'I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational, ' Ocasio-Cortez said. The congresswoman explained, "I'm very supportive of Bernie's run...."

A separate source said Wendy filed the paperwork in Essex County, New Jersey, and served Hunter with divorce papers at 6:30 a.m. That, and Williams has been battling with addiction issues , which Hunter's alleged cheating may have caused her to spiral.

By promoting ambitious forward-thinking policies including the Green New Deal, a bill to address human-induced climate-change, Ocasio-Cortez has found herself the preferred target of white conservative ire in the USA - including becoming the recipient of multiple death threats, according to reports.

The 29-year-old congresswoman from NY has reportedly been invited to talk at this year's event, which returns in June after a break in 2018.

Ocasio-Cortez has not apologized for the tweets and Crenshaw has not responded.

"I don't know. I mean ..."

Barr, a Kentucky Republican, wants Ocasio-Cortez to offer a mea culpa to "our colleague and patriot to our country" Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a Texas Republican, before she accepts Barr's invitation to tour a Kentucky coal mine.

"Justice is here", said one image Ocasio-Cortez posted to Facebook in 2017 for the left-wing political group Justice Democrats, in a play on the show's "Winter is here" tagline.
