AOC's harrowing description of what it was like to survive- apparently, barely - the insurrection of Jan 6: "I hear these huge violent bangs on my door... like someone was trying to break the door down. And there were no voices, no yells, no one saying who they were .... just boom, boom, boom." She ran over to the legislative office to her staffer, and he said, "Hide, hide, run and hide." AOC went to a back area of her office and jumped into her bathroom and closed the door. Then, she realized that whoever was banging had made it into her office. She hears, "Where is she?! Where is she?!" This was the moment where I thought everything was over," Ocasio-Cortez said. "I thought I was going to die."
(Ed. note: This recounting is terrifying, yet important to know. I could only watch a little of it, maybe after a little time passes, I can watch some more. Multiple trigger warnings.)
