Why did Yoho go off on AOC? Was there something recent in particular?

Or is he just a hit and run randomizing motherfucker?

1. It had something to do with her expressing the rather noncontroversial opinion

that poverty is a major contributing cause of crime in cities.

2. Probably the latter.

He resents having to share the House with a woman who is of the opposing Party. No other reason, really. Another Republican douchebag. The only kind that get elected to Washington these days.

5. I don't know, but her speech was awesome in response to his

Whatever you want to call it, circle talk, apology.

He tried to put her in her place, and she did just that. She stately walked out onto the Congress floor and called him out, along with all the other men that think and act like he does.


Thank you AOC, your dad would be proud!

13. I watched it another time also...

That speech made me proud to be an American women. Made sure my family watched it also, the men were proud of her and disgusted by the way the men in Congress treat her.

They would not allow men to act like that around them, the man is off the rails and should resign.

8. IDK but some have expressed

that either Trump directed them or they have decided on their own to go after the women that have gone after him, like Liz Cheney and now AOC.

9. He bought into the whole propaganda package

That Trump has been using to attack AOC. Trump has tarred her with a broad brush and blames her uses every nasty conspiracy theory he can find to denigrate Democrats.

Yoho appears to have swallowed it all without question and let the propaganda fuel his sexist rage.

10. At the risk of generalizing,

he's an asshole man who thinks he can spew on women without consequences. Guess what?

14. It smelled like a publicity stunt to me

It was followed up by that insincere "apology" that bizarrely included that he won't apologize for his passion or God as if anyone demanded anything like that. Even that apology was for the base and not for AOC.

17. But I don't think we'd even have learned about this had a

reporter from The Hill not overheard it and reported on it.

If it was a stunt, what a foolish disaster. It reminds me of Martha McSally going after that CNN correspondent and how badly that backfired on her.

15. AOC is there to do her job and represent all people, not just Yoyo's wealthy elites.

He cannot stand that his free ride of screwing over everyone else is threatened by a minority woman, whom he thinks should be ordered around like the waitress bringing him drinks instead of working for all Americans.

After all, Yoyo and many of his republican country club buddies think that the United States no longer needs social programs for it's people, because they are wealthy now and don't need the help anymore, so it's not a problem anymore... Once you understand that they really do think that, their behavior is easy to understand.
