Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., fired back at Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, on Wednesday night, hours after he tweeted a video of himself drinking water from a sink attached to a toilet at a migrant detention center, calling the congresswoman “#FakeNews” for claiming migrants were drinking from the toilet.

“There is a genre of videos where GOP House members – who clearly didn’t read sworn testimony that detention sinks were broken- filming themselves drinking out of toilet sinks,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response to King.

“They’re so anti-immigrant they risk pink eye to show off that they didn’t do the reading #CloseTheCamps,” she added.

Several hours earlier, King posted that he visited the same cell where Ocasio-Cortez had reported migrants were drinking from the toilet.

“I took a drink out of there,” he tweeted, referring to the sink above the toilet. “And actually pretty good!”

“No way was @AOC objectively honest in her #FakeNews spin about the border,” he wrote of the congresswoman’s assertion about subpar conditions. “Click bait for Snowflakes!”

King suggested the initial claim came from a “language barrier” that resulted in “misinformation” about facilities.

Ocasio-Cortez said that migrants at the detention centers were being forced to drink “out of toilets” hours after she toured one of the locations in July.
