Ocasio-Cortez was campaigning for Hawaii Democratic congressional candidate Kaniela Ing ahead of this weekend's primary election and argued that Hawaii felt like a "kindred home" because she also comes "from a place of colonized people".

In a video posted Wednesday, in which Shapiro mocked Democratic National Committee chairperson Tom Perez for labeling the NY congressional candidate the "future of the Democratic Party", he offered to donate $10,000 to her campaign if she accepted an offer to debate him.

The conservative host referenced Ocasio-Cortez's comments that Republicans aren't willing to debate, and said he wanted to ask her to "name an industry you would not nationalize; which ones should the government not run and why?".

"But sure, go with "the Orthodox Jew who has never catcalled a woman in his life is ACKSHUALLY a sexist catcaller for asking for a discussion or debate".
