Last week wasn't great for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), as her most recent town hall event was riddled with angry constituents. 

Some of those in attendance seemed especially unhappy with her position on several hot-button issues, including immigration and the debt ceiling. A few in the crowd entered into a lively debate with the radical progressive Democrat, eventually getting angry with her.

"American citizens should come first before migrants!" one man, wearing a shirt with the Cuban flag while holding an American flag, shouted.

"America first!" he said.

It got bad

That same man eventually challenged AOC further on the illegal immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border.

After pressing AOC on where she was at on the issue, he shouted, "You’re a piece of s**t!"

According to Conservative Brief, many in attendance held signs that read, "America First. Vetted legal migrants only,” “Stop funding Ukraine,” “AOC: An Obvious Criminal,” and “AOC: Stop pushing drag queen story hour."

"It’s nice to see that some sanity still lives on in New York’s 14th District. In case you’ve yet to see Sandy get absolutely destroyed by her own constituents, just take a look," Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) tweeted.

Calls for elimination

AOC went on to call for the end of the debt ceiling entirely, citing "constitutional reasons," according to Fox Business. Her view on the matter came after someone asked if she thinks the 14th Amendment should be utilized to tackle the pending debt ceiling crisis.

"I still believe, first of all, that we should start to implement [the 14th Amendment] anyway because we should eliminate the debt limit in the United States because of the Constitutional reasons," Ocasio-Cortez said.

Others in the crowd slammed AOC for her support of sending billions of American tax dollars to Ukraine to fight Russia.

Overall, AOC had a very bad night, and it wasn't the warm reception she's used to on social media, where her adoring fans cherish every word she says as the gospel. As Americans suffer increasingly under a Democratic administration, it's no wonder so many Democrat-leaning voters are finally becoming fed up with what's happening and who's responsible for it all.
