Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin blasted Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for speculating about his “weekly huddles” with fossil fuel lobbyists.

CNN host Dana Bash asked Manchin on Sunday to react to Cortez’s tweet where she claimed that the West Virginia senator cannot support the Democrat-backed reconciliation bill because of his ties to the fossil fuel corporations.

“Its’s totally false. Those type of superlatives … continue to divide, divide, divide,” Manchin responded. “I don’t know that young lady that well. I met her one time between sets here, but that’s it. We have not had any conversations. She’s just speculating and saying things.”
