AOC claims constituents are anti-LGBT so she doesn’t have to ‘take them seriously’

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compared her constituents to members of the Westboro Baptist Church and therefore does not need to “take them seriously” after a disastrous town hall event on Wednesday.

AOC wrote “These homophobes were yelling Westboro Baptist-style anti-LGBT+ slogans. What do you think I’m gonna do? Take them seriously? If you want to associate w/ their views, that’s your business. But NY-14 will ALWAYS have a champion for LGBTQ+ people on my watch. Period.”
