The following article, SCARY SIGHT! Ocasio-Cortez Becomes Youngest to Preside Over House of Representatives (Watch), was first published on Flag And Cross.
To hear a person – any person – address freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as “Madam Speaker” is scary enough.
To see AOC – with your eyes – holding a gavel while standing behind the podium inside the House of Representatives is the stuff of nightmares.
Both things just happened.
In another first for rookie congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the liberal Democrat from New York on Friday became the youngest woman to preside over the U.S. House of Representatives.
Sitting in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s chair as part of a routine rotation of House members, Ocasio-Cortez took her turn with the gavel and ran the chamber for about an hour. The duty is shared day-to-day by members of the House majority, currently the Democrats.
In the event, Ocasio-Cortez did not have a great deal to do. She presided over “special orders,” which are generally short speeches by House members at the end of the day’s legislative business, often on issues of concern in their districts.

There are no more words left to describe Alexandria.
AOC has made it abundantly clear that she doesn’t know much of anything.
Calling her out at this point just feels redundant.
But, once again, for your entertainment, here’s a clip featuring Ocasio-Cortez.
This time, she says President Trump is creating illegal aliens by forcing them to enter America unlawfully.
Boy. How long did Alexandria think this one through?
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) broke dozens of hearts around the nation by once again mocking Ocasio-Cortez.
Pelosi did it on “60 Minutes” with host, Lesley Stahl.
It was blatant. And it was obvious.
In other words, Nancy needs AOC to know who is boss.
Stahl: “So you are contending with a group in Congress: Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists, on the right, these moderates. And you yourself said that you’re the only one who can unify everybody. And the question is can you?”
Pelosi: “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to go down the mainstream.”
Stahl: “You have these wings– AOC, and her group on one side–.”
Pelosi: “That’s like five people.”
And boom goes the dynamite!
OUCH! Five whole people, huh?
You just know that has to hurt Ocasio-Cortez’s feelings.
Can the Speaker of the House unify the Democratic party while getting pushback from the left and self-described democratic socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? https://t.co/f4VUYTYIdw pic.twitter.com/a9wOobPj5g
