Senator Lindsey Graham and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are beefing on Twitter over the government shutdown.

The tiff began when Graham issued a blistering statement critiquing Speaker Pelosi for canceling the State of the Union until the government shutdown ends. Graham said Pelosi’s tactic was a “new low” in American politics and “absurd, petty, and shameful.” 

Graham’s statement:

“Speaker Pelosi’s decision not to invite President Trump to deliver the State of the Union address sets a new low for American politics. The President – regardless of party – should have the opportunity to address the American people in the State of the Union address from the traditional venue of the U.S. House of Representatives. The State of the Union is a tradition which has been carried out during times of war and peace, turmoil and tranquility.  It is an important piece of our history and government. Speaker Pelosi’s decision to ignore this long-standing American tradition is absurd, petty, and shameful.  The judgement of history will not be kind.”

In response, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that Graham has failed to hold President Trump accountable for the government shutdown and other controversies.
