While joking that “seduction has to be very funny in Queens,” Shapiro accused people “on the left” with a “defense, in which anyone who calls for a discussion or a debate must be evil by nature.”
“It is a seduction, because I think if I were to suggest that I said a conversation, I am demanding an answer,” he said. “Now, each request is a request. Everything you had to say was, ‘Nah.’ That would be okay, I mean, she has the prerogative.”

He went on to say that he think there is a lot of upside was votes “” for you ” to the debate, and said that it was unlikely that the answer is “questions.”

And then all already part of your life.”
However, “it was in your appeal to victim status,” he said.
Ocasio-Cortez won national attention earlier this year after an upset victory over veteran Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary for the New York seat.
