Recently Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez participated in a town hall event that MSNBC promoted. She talked about her outlandish ideas while continuously making incorrect assertions. Now one Fox News host is letting her have it with both barrels.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed the congresswoman and singled her out as being a “moron, nasty, awful” person.
Carlson took the long way around before cracking down on AOC. Instead, Carlson began by calling out MSNBC’s Chris Hayes as “what every man would be if feminists ever achieved absolute power in this country: apologetic, bespectacled, and deeply, deeply concerned about global warming and the patriarchal systems that cause it.”
A pretty good lead in to his tirade, Carlson then moved on to Hayes parent network. “[The town hall] apparently seemed like a wise idea to executives at MSNBC,” Carlson continued. “The very same news outlet that spent two years lying to you about Russia brings you a 29-year-old former bartender to teach you about science.”
Officially warmed up, the Fox News host then brought it home with a scathing rebuke of Ocasio-Cortez.
“Listen to her explain how she doesn’t resort to ad hominem attacks unlike her enemies who, by the way, are xenophobic white supremacists,” Carlson shared. “So it’s official, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a moron, and nasty, and more self-righteous than any televangelist who ever preached a sermon on cable access. She’s not impressive, she’s awful.”
There have been no reports of Ocasio-Cortez receiving treatment for these severe burns.
