“I’m hesitant to walk my dog:” AOC says her “life has been in danger since 2018.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she fears for her life as a member of Congress, saying she rarely relaxes in public and is worried even walking from her car to her front door.

The 33-year-old New York congresswoman told CNN’s Chris Wallace that the attack on Paul Pelosi only added to her concerns.

Pelosi, 82, had his skull fractured when an intruder broke into the San Francisco home he shares with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at 2:30 a.m.

Ocasio-Cortez has been open about seeking therapy in the wake of the Jan. 6 riots, telling the New York Times this fall that her office is struggling to keep up with the “astronomical” amount of threats she’s throwing at each get day.

When asked if she felt her life was in danger, she replied: “Absolutely, I’ve felt like my life is in danger since I won my primary in 2018.

“And it got particularly intense when I was first brought into Congress in 2019.

“It’s a very real dynamic and unfortunately and tragically, we’ve seen political violence,” she told Wallace on an episode of his chat show, which aired Friday on HBO Max.

She added: “When I wake up in the morning I hesitate to walk my dog.

“It means when I get home I have to ask my fiancé to come to my car to just escort me from my car to my front door.”

“It means there’s just a general attitude where you feel like there’s almost a static electricity around you.

“And you just keep looking around, your head just spinning, going to a restaurant, walking down the street.”

The Tesla-driving former barmaid-turned-congresswoman said she disagreed with the move to turn the Democrats into a centrist party and move away from the progressive policies she promotes.

She denied being an extremist.

“It’s important that we look at the substance of what that actually means,” she told Wallace.

“As someone who is often labeled ‘extreme’ I would obviously disagree.

“I don’t think I’m as extreme as Marjorie Taylor Greene is on the Republican side.”

She said she felt her politics were not on the same level as Taylor Greene’s.

“The idea that someone who believes in guaranteed universal health coverage in the United States would be equated with someone who believes undocumented undocumented people should suffer physical harm — kind of on the same extreme level — would be something against that I would object,’ she said.

The 33-year-old said she knew her progressive politics had made her a target, so she’s evolved to make her work “as robust and urgent as possible”.

She added: “I don’t want to take the time that I have for granted. I don’t know if I’ll be there to see how we achieve guaranteed health care in the United States.

“So now I have to endorse it in a very vocal way,” she said.

“Similar to a full path to citizenship for millions of people in this country. I just have to be out there and say it and at least leave a roadmap in case I’m not there.

She also indicated that she would not support Joe Biden if he runs for a second term and said she wanted a different kind of Democrat to run in 2024.

“I think we need not just generational change, but potentially significant change,” she said.

“I think, and I hope, that what we’ve seen, whether people think it’s to the left or to the right, or up or down or whatever, it can be that we’re moving in a direction , where the Democratic Party leadership is less reliant on large and corporate donors and sponsorships, because that has a shaping effect on our legislative priorities.’
