Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, backed by a team of supportive colleagues, led one hour of passionate speeches on the House floor Thursday morning calling out Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., for "dehumanizing" insults against her and slamming his attempt to apologize as falling way short.

Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recounted how Yoho accosted her on the Capitol steps Monday, put a finger in her face calling her "disgusting," "crazy" and "dangerous." Later, she said Yoho then called her a "f---ing b---h," which was overheard by reporters.

“I will not stay up late at night waiting for an apology from a man who has no remorse over calling women and using abusive language towards women,” she said.
