Default AOC's avoidance of a reporter

Just yesterday, I saw on the news that Aleandria Ocasio-Cortez was parroting the line that children were being forced to drink out of toilets near the US-Mexico border.

When she was asked, by a reporter, if she had seen any of this, she simply refused to answer. Instead, she swiftly rolled up the window of the car that she was riding in, thereby allowing her to ignore the question.

Evidently, she was disturbed that anyone would allow the facts to get in the way of a powerful narrative...
