After Democrats Sue Trump, Their Plan Backfires On Queen AOC

AOC thought she was safe – but she’s in deep trouble!

Laws are supposed to apply to everyone, right?

So, if a federal court makes a certain ruling against President Donald Trump, that ruling should hold for all elected officials. Correct?

This only sounds logical to me.

And it sounds logical to former Democratic New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who has just filed a lawsuit against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Why? Because Hikind is claiming AOC is doing the same thing the court said Trump couldn’t do:

Blocking people on Twitter.

As he said in a statement announcing the lawsuit (via Fox News):

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has blocked me on Twitter yesterday apparently because my critique of her tweets and policies have been too stinging.”

He added that after the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals told Trump he couldn’t block Twitter users, the same should apply to AOC.

After all, the ruling was that Twitter is a “public space,” and everyone “should have access to the government officials on it.”

Therefore, Hikind believes AOC shouldn’t be allowed to block people. And he’s not too happy with AOC’s behavior, either:

“Ocasio-Cortez is acting cowardly and should be ashamed of her attempts to silence me. I’ve done nothing but address her ignorance and disregard for the truth.

She constantly brags about the millions of followers she has but is afraid of my speech. She is a hypocrite.

Hikind made it clear that this is a free speech issue, which it definitely appears to be.

The complaint he filed seeks an injunction against Ocasio-Cortez for violating the First Amendment.

AOC has over 4.6 million followers but she apparently has no qualms about blocking people she doesn’t like.

Hikind told Fox News that she had banned “several others, including journalists,” like OANN’s Liz Wheeler:

Then, after this news broke, journalist Harry Cherry said AOC had blocked him as well.

And The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra wrote back on April 5 that she had blocked him after he “called out her latest set of lies”:

In the end, I think Hikind is correct.

If Trump isn’t allowed to block people because he’s an elected official, and Twitter is a public space, then AOC should have to follow the same rule.

If this lawsuit doesn’t come through for Hikind, many will see it as gross hypocrisy.

I also think it’s wrong of AOC to run away from journalists and fellow politicians, just because she doesn’t like them.

She’s an elected official of the people; she’s supposed to listen to them, regardless of whether or not she likes the comments.

SHARE if you think the law should apply to everyone, including AOC!
