Agent in El Paso yesterday told me he was there to see the migrant talk with AOC. agent said when AOC asked “where do you drink water?” The migrant said “a el baño” which means toilet but that’s what they all call the contraption that combines a toilet with water fountain atop. https://t.co/3PSRj9zhkP

“El bano” doesn’t mean toilet, it means “bathroom.” Which would make sense from the sink set up there which is part of the bath area.
So if this is correct, the woman didn’t even say “toilet.” Either Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t understand the term or is deliberately mischaracterizing it.
