A spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Post that "the congresswoman's words speak for themselves" when asked to comment. Roughly half of the nation's teenagers say they use Facebook, compared with 71 percent in 2015.

Stepping into the dustup, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".

Ocasio-Cortez is one of a number of freshman lawmakers who have questioned traditional Democratic support for Israel. "And so I'm not, like, scrolling through trying to read everything online that journalists are writing on weekends".
