WASHINGTON, DC — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stunned viewers of her Instagram live broadcast Thursday night when she recounted her narrow escape from Titanic. The Congresswoman told the amazing story after narrowly surviving the January 6th riots despite being only three zip codes away.
“I’ll never forget January 6th, you guys. It was like, the most cray-cray day ever,” she told her 87 million viewers. “First of all, I wake up—right? And freaking Ted Cruz breaks down my door and tries to strangle me with his bare hands. I’m like, ‘not again!’ After that whole fiasco, the white supremacists storm the Capitol. I could hear the gunshots. I couldn’t believe it. But no matter how many times I rewound the footage on MSNBC, I could still hear the gunshots.”
Then AOC dropped the bombshell.
“You people don’t know what I’ve been through. And when I say ‘you people’, I’m obviously talking about white people,” she explained. “I once traveled from London town to Brooklyn on the Titanic, and let me tell you, that [explicit] sank. And I was completely freaking out. They were like, ‘Women and children first,’ and I screamed, ‘How dare you assume our gender?’ It was a total [explicit] show–you don’t even know.”
AOC claims she was saved because she insisted on not calling the White Star Line for help, but rather the Black Star Line.
“BSL was there for me,” she said, tearing up. “They totes saved my life.”
