AOC offered her office to the National Guard members who were kicked out of the Capitol Thursday.
's inauguration.Though the reason behind the Capitol Police ordering the Guard to move out Thursday is unclear, it sure seems the reasoning is that they didn't want the building to look like an armed camp. The move drew condemnation by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, and some of the guard members said they felt betrayed.
The good news -- AOC's tweet and the outrage of other members apparently forced an about face ... all of the service members were allowed back inside the building for the night.A National Guard spokesperson shed some light on what went down Thursday, saying ..."As Congress is in session and increased foot traffic and business is being conducted, Capitol Police asked the troops to move their rest area.

They were on break. Marines everywhere hearing about these unfortunate Guardsmen being sent to sleep in a secure parking garage in the austere conditions of Washington D.C.... Put them in hotels or apartment. Your office is also bad for them Who gave the order should be looked into ... transparency is needed with our career politicians!
Oh now that it can get her votes she offers. But when these guys were being kicked out where the fuck were any of congress of the executive branch. NO FUCKING WHERE. Way to go Biden! I love this cute new trend congress is doing where all these representatives say 'you can use my office' - I just wish someone would actually take them up on it 😂 how hollow can these 'showings of support' be? 'Got you a cookie and a slice of pizza too' 🙄👍🏻
Shes so American 🙄 The only good thing she’s done in the few years she’s been there. Trump said they're welcome to the whole Trump Hotel there. They was preparing them for war against the Americans Whore She is the best! Human offering other humans support or help regardless of titles or status, common sense stuff. Sadly it makes news if this happens. Hoping for better days
Thank you for being so considerate of these brave men & women. They deserve our heartfelt appreciation. Bullshit Check for listening devices
