ALEXANDRIA Ocasio-Cortez blasted “wet napkin” Lindsey Graham for his “spinelessness” during a South Caroline debate on Friday.
The comment was in response to a debate swipe Graham made during his final debate against his Democratic challenger Jamie Harrison when he said he would go “down the AOC road” on the state’s climate policy.

Ocasio-Cortez ripped into the senator in a tweet on Friday writing: “I’m not sure you believe in *anything* except preserving yourself & let’s not get started on your climate denial.
“I’ve seen a lot of spinelessness in DC, but you’re at the top when it comes to folding on your own values like a wet napkin. SC deserves better.”
Friday’s swipe by Graham wasn’t the first time he made a comment about the New York congresswoman.
During an appearance on Fox & Friends in 2019, he called her and other progressive lawmakers “anti-America”.
“We all know that [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and this crowd are a bunch of communists,” Graham said.
“They hate Israel, they hate our own country, they’re calling the guards along our border, the Border Patrol agents, concentration camp guards, they accuse people who support Israel of doing it for the Benjamins, they’re anti-Semitic, they’re anti-America.”
Last week Graham was confronted by two liberal women who shouted in his face that Amy Coney Barrett was “racist”.
Graham captioned the video: “I arrived in DC today & was confronted by 2 women — one of whom was from Seattle — who called Judge Amy Coney Barrett a racist & unqualified. This is the modern left, hostile & unhinged. I won’t be intimidated. I can’t wait to #FillTheSeat.”
In the video one woman can be seen apparently filming Graham, telling him “look me in the eye,” before he asks where she’s from.
When she replies Seattle, Graham hits back “Seattle’s a good example of how things are getting out of control.”
Another woman, who is off-camera, tells the Senator: “You’re an example of how things are getting out of control, sir.”
Some critics dub Barrett as “racist” due to her decision to dismiss a workplace discrimination suit where a black employee sued his employer after being fired, the Hill reported.
The black transportation worker claimed that his supervisor had called him a racial slur.
However, Barrett argued that the use of the N-word was not enough to demonstrate that the supervisor had created a hostile work environment.
