What a freaking insult to women who have actually experienced harassment. Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro asked to debate Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, even offering $10,000 to her campaign or for charity.

The congressional nominee likened the offer to catcalling.

From Fox News:

“Miss Ocasio-Cortez, I’m really excited that you’ve been elevated to that position and I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues. You’ve noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you,” Shapiro said.

“Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, I’m willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign, today, for you to come on our Sunday special,” he continued. “We can have an hour long conversation about all the topics under the sun, really probe your belief system.”

Shapiro said he would also debate Ocasio-Cortez for charity.

“However you want to do it, I am more than willing to talk to you,” Shapiro said. “Let’s make this happen.”

Shapiro, Daily Wire editor-in-chief, said that he wants to make “America a more civil and interesting place,” and feels a conversation with Ocasio-Cortez could do just that.

The tweet took off on social media, with some noting that Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t responding. She finally did in a childish way and Shapiro fired back:

Others quickly refuted Ocasio-Cortez’s attack

I wonder how Ocasio-Cortez will react to Candace Owens’ offer to debate for $20,000:
