During her townhall broadcast on MSNBC on Friday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) interrupted the flow of questions to snap at a heckler who called a fellow lawmaker a “moron.”
Appearing with Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC), the two were discussing the Green New Deal with the Republican stating that it would be impossible to pass the resolution to obtain carbon neutrality “with the number of committee references that you would have in the course of that.”
“Make the changes now, you moron,” shouted one man from the audience which drew a rebuke from the freshman lawmaker.
“Hey, hey, hey, hey that’s unacceptable,” Ocasio-Cortez lectured.
“And that’s the difference between me and Trump,” she added as she turned back to Inglis.

Body found in California lake during search for actress Naya Rivera
Rescuers on Monday found a body at the California lake where "Glee" star Naya Rivera went missing last week.
The Ventura County Sheriff's office said "recovery is in progress" of the unidentified body, after a sixth day of searching for the US actress began again at first light.
Rivera, 33, is believed to have accidentally drowned in Lake Piru after renting a boat at the camping and recreational hotspot with her four-year-old son, authorities said last week.
She vanished on Wednesday afternoon, and a massive search involving divers, patrol boats and helicopters was launched after her son was spotted drifting alone in a boat on the lake.
