AOC on Capitol Hill Riot: ‘I Thought I Was Going To Die’

‘I did not know if I was going to make out of that day alive’


OCASIO-CORTEZ: "As for myself, I had a pretty traumatizing event happen to me. And I do not know if I can even disclose the full details of that event due to security concerns, but I can tell you that I had a very close encounter where I thought I was going to die. And you have all of those thoughts where — you know, at the end of your life, and all of these thoughts come rushing to you. And that's what happened to a lot of us on Wednesday. And I thought I — I did not think — I did not know if I was going to make it to the end of that day alive, and not just in a general sense but also in a very, very specific sense. And, you know, I think it's an opportunity for a lot of us to talk about trauma as well.”
