Former U.S. attorneys Brett Tolman and Harry Litman weigh in on ‘Outnumbered Overtime.’

Parler CEO John Matze blasted elected officials, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who recently called for the censorship of his social media platform and proclaimed it “sick” and “evil.”

The CEO said critics like Ocasio-Cortez don’t understand what America stands for.

Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., recently urged Apple and Google to take action against Parler, in a tweet the leader of the so-called “Squad” of progressives sent to her 11.4 million followers. Ocasio-Cortez isn’t alone. Many people on the left have made similar complaints.
