Republican backlash against U.S. Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio cortez, D-N.Y., continues in the wake of her comparison of migrant detention facilities to concentration camps.

Among those critical of her comment is U.S. Sen. John Kennedy, R-La.

“Let me be frank,” he said in a recent interview. “Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez — someone needs to tell her that the voices in her head are not real.”

He went on to challenge her assertion about the conditions on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“She says the conditions are inhumane,” Kennedy said. “But yet when we send a bill over to her to vote to improve those conditions, she voted no. Her hypocrisy is breathtaking.”
