Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other far left Squad members protested outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday over abortion.
They blocked the streets and were ‘arrested’ after refusing to move.
As the cameras rolled, they actually pretended that they were handcuffed. They clearly were not, as each of them paused to wave to the crowd.
This is just so pathetic.

Ocasio-Cortez, Omar pretending to be handcuffed after arrest at protest blows up Twitter: ‘This is too much’
The images of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., seemingly pretending to be handcuffed on Tuesday as they were escorted away from the Supreme Court by police drew amusement and ridicule on the right.
Along with left-wing “Squad” members like Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and several other House Democrats, Ocasio-Cortez and Omar joined an abortion rights protest by the Supreme Court that blocked traffic, leading to Capitol Police taking her away.
Video caught Ocasio-Cortez walking away with a policeman holding her and another protester’s arms, smirking, with her hands behind her back in the typical handcuffs pose, yet she wasn’t cuffed. At one point, she raised a fist to the crowd in solidarity, confirming she wasn’t being constrained. Omar also could be seen in a video walking away from the protest with her hands behind her back in handcuffs pose, despite not wearing them.
Take a look below:
Her pretending to be handcuffed is just spectacular. https://t.co/UNJnWam1c5

She's pretending to be handcuffed, does a power fist, and goes back to pretending to be handcuffed. https://t.co/4aNVsX4F4z

Has anyone told these idiots that they are lawmakers and not professional protesters?
