Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., says there are health risks associated with Facebook and that's why she's chose to stop using her account.

"I personally gave up Facebook, which was kind of a big deal because I started my campaign on Facebook", Ocasio-Cortez continued.

However, that doesn't mean she's necessarily a fan of social media platforms.

"Also on the podcast, Ocasio-Cortez compared Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's re-election last week to "the ascent of authoritarianism across the world", and said that his victory should affect American policy on Israel". "I think that Netanyahu is a Trump-like figure, and I think that we-there are so many ways to approach this issue". "I think it's something that can be discussed". Ocasio-Cortez said US policy toward Israel should be affected by the proposed annexation, and there are "conversations happening in our caucus".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may seem undefeated when it comes to laying waste to trolls on Twitter.

Ocasio-Cortez's decision to drop Facebook may correlate with these findings.

Kadri to have hearing for actions in Maple Leafs game against Bruins
Jake Muzzin was bloodied by a hard David Pastrnak hit, and then delivered a thunderous check of his own on Torey Krug . Though Marleau was fine, Kadri immediately jumped in to retaliate against DeBrusk and cross-checked him in the face.

A spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Post that "the congresswoman's words speak for themselves" when asked to comment.

She suggested it was wrong to put pictures of the 9/11 terrorist attack in NY on the front page of the newspaper because such images are "incredibly upsetting and triggering" and that discussing 9/11 is just a thinly disguised veneer for what is really a "politically motivated attack" on Omar.

Pelosi may have been referring to the Justice Democrats, a political action committee that supported a small slate of seven representatives that includes Ocasio-Cortez. "Do you believe this should affect USA policy to the state of Israel?" co-host Michael Isikoff asked.

'While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what's important is that we have a large number of votes on the floor of the house, ' she said on April 8. "And so I'm not, like, scrolling through trying to read everything online that journalists are writing on weekends".

In the same tweet, Ocasio-Cortez pins threats she has received on Republicans, asking, "GOP, what's it going to take to stop?"
