Meanwhile, AOC and Greene, on opposite ends of the political spectrum, have typically verbally sparred since Greene's fast rise in popularity among some conservatives. Final month, Greene confronted Ocasio-Cortez outdoors the House chamber after shouting 'Hey Alexandria' twice to get her consideration, the Washington Publish reported. Greene then began demanding to know why Ocasio-Cortez supports anti-fascist protesters and Black Lives Matter, which she labeled as 'terrorist' teams.
