We had a long editorial debate about whether “confused” and “AOC” in the headline were redundant.

WASHINGTON, DC — As fallout continues from the nation of Israel’s decision to deny Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) entry into the country, another U.S. Representative had a unique complaint.

“It’s wrong for Epcot to keep these strong women of color out of the Israel Pavilion,” tweeted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). “I thought Disneyland Orlando was open to everyone!”

After Uncle Walt’s Insider reached out for a comment — theme park news is our thing, after all — a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez’s office gave us a clarification. “We’re pretty sure she was referring to the New Jersey pavilion.”
