Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has said some inflammatory things since being elected in 2018.

But when a reporter asked if she was sorry for saying that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-T.X., tried to have her murdered last week, she didn’t want to answer.
In fact, she denied ever having said so – and then fled from the reporter.
“Will you apologize to Ted Cruz? You tweeted that he… he tried to have you murdered at the Capitol riot,” the reporter asked Ocasio-Cortez.
“Yeah, so um… that’s not the quote and, um, I will not apologize for what I said,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.
She then immediately hustled away from the reports, so quickly she almost slipped on a snow-covered sidewalk.
