‘You may fool the rest of the country’: AOC rips Trump over ‘impeachment card’ tweet

The president added to the selective quote that “the only reason they play the impeachment card, which cannot legally be used” is that Democrats are concerned about losing the election.

“Mr. President, you’re from Queens,” Ocasio-Cortez replied. “You may fool the rest of the country, but I’ll call your bluff any day of the week. Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do when the President obstructs justice, advises witnesses to ignore legal subpoenas and more.”
