"I think she's pretty set in her ways", Comer said.

However the launch turned chaotic after Ms Ocasio-Cortez's office incorrectly sent a document to journalists suggesting the United States should aim to "get rid of farting cows and aeroplanes".

Rep. Barr sent a letter to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday to reference what he calls "a lack of civility" towards another colleague at the Capitol.

The progressive darling and representative for NY, known as AOC, reportedly hired and met with officials from the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) earlier this year.

"Luckily, Kentucky has open borders", Corbin Trent, spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, told the Courier-Journal.

"I can't even", she said.

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's name is on the lips of almost everyone at Fox News. Fox's Laura Ingraham - who did a segment during the six-week period questioning whether Ocasio-Cortez would have to go to jail because of an aide's alleged campaign finance violations - has invited her on her show and said she admired her political rise. Comer said it was "fair game" for Republicans to criticize other Democratic freshmen, including Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, whom Republican critics have accused of belittling the September 11 terrorist attacks.

She said in the interview that her team still has accounts on Facebook.

She cited "the level to which conservative and Republican groups" will go "sending out emails, calling me and others domestic terrorists, or if it's [Robert] Murdoch or the New York Post printings on the front page and to circulate all around New York City this image that is incredibly upsetting and triggering for New Yorkers".

Then she said, "So for me my opposition was less, and by the way, my opposition being like, five tweets, and apparently five tweets took down the richest man in the world and I'm responsible, right?"

Her second reason was "tax fraud", pointing to Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen's assertion to lawmakers that the president inflated his wealth "when it served his purposes" but deflated assets to reduce his real estate taxes. Among Omar's contributors was Ocasio-Cortez, who gave her $2,000.

Rep. Antonio Delgado (D-N.Y.) - a top target of the National Republican Congressional Committee - edged her out by raising $746,083 from January 1 to March 31.

"I mean, I think it's on the table, I certainly think it's on the table", Ocasio-Cortez replied.

She also added in the speech: 'As an American member of Congress, I have to make sure I live up to the ideals of fighting for liberty and justice - those are very much rooted in the reason why my family came here, ' and spoke about emigrating to the U.S.as a child who lived in a Somali refugee camp.
