Ocasio-Cortez DENIES vets walked out on meeting – here’s what THEY say happened

We reported earlier that two vets had walked out of a meeting with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and there have been new developments.
First, a spokesman for AOC said it never happened:
Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesman Corbin Trent denied there was a walk-out during the conference.
“The only person that left the meeting while it was underway was someone who had to go pick up their children,” he said.
There’s just a little problem with that – the vets went on Fox News and completely contradicted that version of events.
Mazzella argued that Ocasio-Cortez’s comments reminded him of the protests he faced when he first returned from war.
“Didn’t feel good,” he said. “‘It reminds me when I came home from ‘Nam and we had the protesters here. You know that’s not the way to treat people.”
Vitaliano said that Ocasio-Cortez had also referred to President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “two clones,” and not in a positive manner.
“There was another insult. Israel is one of our strongest allies,” Mazzella added. “To do something like that and come out with a statement like that is not, that’s not who we are.”
“It was like Netanyahu and the president are two peas in a pod,” Vitaliano continued. “They’re the same. They are no good. They are no good for the area. The area. And that’s where we got the second part about the tension in the Middle East what’s going on. Right after this is when I left. She says that the tension is being caused by President Trump because he withdrew from the Iran deal and that is why we are having all this tension. I think she should do her homework that tension has been going on since 1948.”
That, according to Vitaliano and Mazzella, is when they decided that they had had enough and walked out of the meeting.
Oops. Well that’s awkward.
Here’s the video of their comments:

Well that’s it for the weekend. We hope you had a good one.
Have an open thread and tell us whether you did or didn’t.
Here’s some comment fodder:

That’s all I got, you emptied me out of comment fodder yesterday. Take care!
