Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Democratic of the 14th congressional district of the House Of Representatives talks with a reporter after giving a passionate speech to kick off the 3rd Annual Woman's March in the borough of Manhattan in NY

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist who frequently criticizes Mr. Trump, appeared stoic during most of the president's speech except for a moment when he celebrated the number of women serving in Congress. Flake to elevate the stories of survivors everywhere.

On issue after issue-from low minority unemployment numbers to curing AIDS to the effort to stop sex traffickers-the NY congresswoman chose to sit instead of acknowledging the president's remarks with any approval.

Archila and another woman, Maria Gallagher, chose to go to Flake's office, where they saw his statement of support for Kavanaugh after the judge and Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The now famous confrontation, which was broadcast on CNN, took place after Flake had said he planned to support the nomination despite the fact that Kavanaugh had been accused by Christine Blasey Ford of a past sexual assault.

In an interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews late Tuesday following Trump's address, Ocasio-Cortez argued Trump's swipe at socialism demonstrates that he's "losing on the issues".

Khris Middleton, Nikola Jokic, Ben Simmons , Blake Griffin, D'Angelo Russell, Nikola Vucevic and Kyle Lowry made up the reserves . James took Davis, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook , LaMarcus Aldridge, Karl-Anthony Towns and Bradley Beal.

"The fear is, it's like going in to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, anything you do or say can be used against you", said one lobbyist for a major bank. "I think he's scared", Ocasio-Cortez said. After the probe failed to produce any compelling evidence of Kavanaugh's guilt, Flake ultimately voted in favor of his confirmation. She wore another pin reading: "Well behaved women seldom make history". Critics said she was having a "bad night".

Speaking to reporters after Trump proclaimed that "America will never be a socialist country", Ocasio-Cortez said the president felt the need to lash out at socialism because bold progressives have gotten "under his skin".

In the same confrontation, while Flake stood almost captive in the elevator elevator, Maria Gallagher, 23, shouted through tears: 'I was sexually assaulted and nobody believed me.

While Flake told the Senate Judiciary Committee he would vote to advance the nomination of Kavanaugh, who stood accused of sexually assaulting Dr. Christine Blasey Ford when she was 15, he called for a week's delay to allow an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into the allegations. What you are doing is allowing someone who actually violated a woman to sit on the Supreme Court'. Her tweet continued, "Here's a hint: I just picked up this gift for them at our very own Lockwood Shop in Jackson Heights".
