Schilling Says Ocasio-Cortez Says ‘Stupid Things’, Provoking Cicilline


Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has gone after Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter, drawing the ire of U.S. Rep. David Cicilline.

The Boston Globe reports 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez, of New York, wrote on Twitter her ideas are being scrutinized because of her age, while Paul Ryan was also elected at a young age and his policies were “considered genius.” She says it’s a double standard.

Schilling told Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter she’s being scrutinized because she says stupid things.

That provoked Cicilline, of Rhode Island, to tell Schilling he should worry about his debt to Rhode Island before going after Ocasio-Cortez.

In 2010, Rhode Island invested $75 million to lure Schilling’s video game company, 38 Studios, from Massachusetts. The company ran out of money and went bankrupt.

Rhode Island sued and recouped some money. The case has been settled.



  1. Maybe Schilling could be considered as one not to comment because he comes from a different state. But as a NY resident, I suggest he is correct. I have zero care for her age, heritage, or shoe size. What matters is the extreme level of stupidity and ignorance she has been mouthing since campaigning. I suppose we have had several rather imbecilic members of Congress, and I will not name some of the current ones here. But this woman had exceeded their “brilliance” by far. She is expert at using catch phrases, aphorisms, and other sweet sounding words. But when asked anything at all about the subjects, she knows nothing. She even admits to it, saying, “I’m not an expert on that.” Well, so far, she is only an expert at uttering some completely stupid things, making the average stuffed animal more intelligent. If she was at least entertaining, there could be some redeeming value to her presence. Had the voters voted by a write in vote and left the page blank, we might have fared better.

  2. Maybe she could look into the double standard in the way ESPN treated schilling over his politics as compared to say dan patrick and some of the outrageous things hes said.

  3. Schilling’s financial trouble does not make this sorry excuse for a member of Congress any smarter.
    On the other hand, David Cicilline’s idiotic retort does make him look dumber.
    Congress is a cesspool of utter hatred, stupidity, and insanity.
