Thursday after Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro challenged Democratic House nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a debate, socialist darling Ocasio-Cortez responded by comparing Shapiro’s offer, which included a payment of $10,000 to either her campaign fund or charity, to “catcalling.”
Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.
And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one. pic.twitter.com/rsD17Oq9qe

Twitter had some things to say about her analogy.
*a man, catcalling me
Me: LET ME GUESS YOU WANT TO DEBATE ME?

Theresa May could shut up the Brexiteers by saying they’re just catcalling

Of course, Shapiro chimed in:
"Hey, girl — want to have a public one-hour discussion on the intricacies of trade policy, deficit spending, and the value of the profit motive? I'll even donate a bunch of money to charity or your campaign to make it happen." — Construction worker in Queens, apparently

Because how else do you respond to that kind of eyewash?
