A Louisiana police officer last week said in a Facebook post that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a “vile idiot” who should be shot.
A screenshot of the post by veteran Gretna police officer Charlie Rispoli was taken by The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate. In it, Rispoli shares a blog post that shows the New York Democrat saying “We pay soldiers too much.”
“This vile idiot needs a round,” reads Rispoli’s remarks above Ocasio-Cortez’s image. “And I don’t mean the kind she used to serve,” he adds, referring to her prior career as a bartender.
