LINCOLN, Neb (WOWT) – During its press conference on Wednesday morning, Nebraska Gov Pete Ricketts took a moment to comment on a tweet from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez about comments he made Monday regarding the distribution of vaccines to undocumented immigrants

The New York Democratic representative targeted the governor on Tuesday retweeted a video clip from Ricketts’ Monday update on the state’s COVID-19 response, which he described as “false news” by “far left Democrats Activists “have been spread”

Imagine you are so racist that you go out of your way to make sure the people who prepare * your * food are not vaccinated https: // tco / QtWoJ6XG72

Ricketts said Ocasio-Cortez made no effort to establish the “facts on the ground” regarding Nebraska’s COVID-19 vaccination schedule and then posted a series of comments classifying the representative as an extremist, who has nothing in common with Nebraskans

“AOC is someone who wants open borders, she wants socialism, she is the one who promoted the New Green Deal, which includes the cattle industry here in Nebraska, our No. 1, would destroy 1 industry They don’t care about Nebraska and despite the tweets from AOC, we’re going to work out our vaccination schedule here in Nebraska and do what’s right for Nebraska. ”

Ocasio-Cortez denied the governor’s claim that she did not attend to Nebraskans on Wednesday morning

And @GovRicketts, if the denial of vaccine access to undocumented workers is “false news”, I am pleased to be publicly corrected by you to declare that all undocumented Nebraskans, including meat packers, have access to have the vaccine Thank you very much! ☺️
