Ocasio-Cortez said at the time.

"And like this is the war, this is our World War II," she claimed.

Over the weekend, the controversial freshman lawmaker downplayed her claims in an apparent attempt to walk them back completely.

Ocasio-Cortez's walked back her comments Sunday despite previously defending them.

After she was initially mocked for the comments in January, she said, "For some reason GOP seems to think this is a gaffe, but it's actually a generational difference."

The New York lawmaker even doubled down on many of her climate change claims in March during an MSNBC town hall with network host Chris Hayes.


A sea sponge is actually more intelligent than her...
