Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., says there are health risks associated with Facebook and that's why she's chose to stop using her account.

"I personally gave up Facebook", the New York Democrat said on Yahoo News' "Skullduggery" podcast released Sunday.

While she's still using Facebook to enlist support for her Green New Deal and to raise funds, Ocasio-Cortez says she has suspended her personal account on the Website.

"Social media poses a public health risk to everybody", Ocasio-Cortez said to Yahoo News.

"I said when Omar made her first comments about all about the Benjamin's, referring to Jews, in America, I said that that was worthy of condemning by name", he said. "I think that Netanyahu is a Trump-like figure".

"I think these are part of conversations that we're having in our caucus, but I think what we're really seeing is the ascent of authoritarianism across the world".

Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged that many young Americans have stopped using Facebook, "I'm doing that as well", she admitted.

Firebrand freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., reportedly refuses to meet with the executives of the big Wall Street banks that are New York City's largest private-sector employers.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY has an interesting take on how she wants HBO's "Game of Thrones" to end.

In a letter hand-delivered to Ocasio-Cortez's office Friday, Republican Rep. Andy Barr of Kentucky told the congresswoman he "was greatly trouble to hear of your comments about our colleague and patriot to our country". There are also derogatory allusions to her youth, like when commentator Brit Hume said that "she's kind of adorable in sort of the way that a 5-year-old child can be adorable", according to the research.

Ocasio-Cortez's voice then dropped to a whisper.

Ocasio-Cortez said while she had started to "impose little rules" about her social media use - like curtailing her consumption of content on weekends - she still writes her own Twitter and Instagram posts, both platforms where her followers exceed 3 million people.

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