The New Yorker is bringing a special guest to her first State of the Union as a congresswoman: Ana Maria Archila.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a celebrated figure within the Labour Party, and is particularly admired on the left for triggering a primary and unseating a longstanding member of Congress without the use of corporate funding.

After Archila was widely seen online, she appeared on "CBS This Morning" to talk about the interaction.

The president used his speech to call for "bipartisanship" and "unity", little of which was on offer from Ocasio-Cortez.

"I don't think that he did his homework". In an appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford told the panel that she was "100 percent" certain that Kavanaugh had assaulted her at a gathering of teenagers when they were in high school in the 1980s; Kavanaugh vehemently denied the accusations during his testimony.

"So, when we saw him, we were having all these reactions of, how can you do this?" "Think about them", Archila told Flake, a Republican from Arizona. "I stood in front of his office and told my story to protect my children and the country they're growing up in".

Archila, the co-executive director at the Center for Popular Democracy, is the activist who confronted Jeff Flake, who was then serving as a GOP senator, in an elevator on Capitol Hill in a viral moment over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. You're telling me that my assault doesn't matter!": "Protesters confront Sen.

In an interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews late Tuesday following Trump's address, Ocasio-Cortez argued Trump's swipe at socialism demonstrates that he's "losing on the issues".

United States congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been criticised following a "lovely and wide-reaching" phone call with Jeremy Corbyn.

Archila responded by saying in a tweet that she is "filled with hope" by Ocasio-Coretz's "fierce spirit & her relentless belief that we all deserve to live with dignity & share in the abundance of our country".

The self-described democratic socialist had already made her feelings about Trump's State of the Union address known well ahead of the Tuesday event.
