Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro challenged democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a debate, offering to donate $10,000 to her campaign if she accepted — but it triggered a sparring match online.

Shapiro initially tweeted a video on Wednesday in which he mocked Democratic National Committee chairperson Tom Perez for calling Ocasio-Cortez, a New York congressional candidate, the “future of the Democratic Party,” before issuing his challenge.

“Miss Ocasio-Cortez, I’m really excited that you’ve been elevated to that position and I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues. You’ve noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you,” Shapiro said.

“Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, I’m willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign, today, for you to come on our Sunday special,” he continued. “We can have an hour long conversation about all the topics under the sun, really probe your belief system.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Thursday night, Ocasio-Cortez compared Shapiro’s offer to “catcalling” on Twitter.

“Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions,” she wrote. “And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”

Shapiro responded: “Discussion and debate are not ‘bad intentions.’ Slandering someone as a sexist catcaller without reason or evidence does demonstrate cowardice and bad intent, however.”

    Smart enough not to make an idiot out of herself.

      she has repeatedly shown how stupid she is – Ben would eat her alive.

    Awe, the little princess thinks someone like Shapiro would stoop so low as to, in her words, catcall her, (such a grown-up word) proves how immature and unfit she really is to be in government, let alone Congress. If she is the new face of the democratic party then heaven help us all. Pathetic!

    She’s a coward.

    Would love to see Ben debate any Democratic Socialist Communist. The real concern is that young people like her Vote. Most like Socialism and do not like Capitalism.
