Ted Cruz mocked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at CPAC after the congresswoman raised millions for his Texan constituents
  • Sen. Ted Cruz mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her response to the Capitol insurrection.
  • Cruz said: "Especially now, the left, they are shrill. They are angry."
  • Speaking at CPAC, Cruz also took aim at Sen. Bernie Sanders for wearing mittens.
He said: "We're gathered at a time where the hard left, where the socialists control the levers of government, where they control the White House, where they control every executive branch, where they control both houses of Congress. Bernie is wearing mittens, and AOC is telling us she was murdered."

Cruz seemed to be referring to comments Ocasio-Cortez made in the wake of the January 6 assault on the Capitol. Speaking on Instagram Live, the congresswoman said: "I thought I was going to die."
