After being confronted by angry protesters at her last town hall, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was likely hoping for a warmer welcome by her constituents on Wednesday.
Instead, she got an even more hostile protest.
In fact the protest so stunning, some critics wondered whether Ocasio-Cortez had a “nervous breakdown” during the confrontation.

“AOC has got to go! AOC has got to go!” protesters chanted.
Ocasio-Cortez laughed and pretended to dance and mock the chant at first.

The sign read, “Wake up New York. Vote for Tina Forte. F**k AOC.”
“Very classy. Thank you, sir,” Ocasio-Cortez said to the man.
Ocasio-Cortez later ran out of the room when the lights suddenly turned off. She was seen on camera huddling in a doorway behind one of her security guards when the lights are put back on.
She comes back and adopted a strange, fake accent while trying to get the crowd to settle —
