Earlier today Tucker Carlson called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) a “moron” and “awful” on his Fox News show.
“So this is 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,” said Carlson, as he dissected Ocasio-Cortez’s Friday appearance at MSNBC’s town hall on her Green New Deal policy proposal.
But “not everything she says is wrong,” Carlson said, as he aired footage of Ocasio-Cortez railing against “runaway income inequality” and the increasing financialization of the U.S. economy.
“OK, you hate to admit it, given the source, but try to ignore the way she said it,” said Carlson.
Maybe just print it out and read it. A lot of it’s basically true. Neither party wants to talk about this. The Republicans are in fetal position, they just don’t want to be unpopular anymore, they’ll do anything not to be unpopular. The Democrats want what they’ve always wanted, total and complete control over you and this country. Neither party will say that our economy at its core is badly distorted.
When someone called a fmr Republican Congressman a “moron” at our televised town hall, I shut it down immediately – bc I believe our policies can win on merit, & can be improved w/ productive discourse.Advertisement
You know we’re winning when the GOP resort to vapid, personal insults ⬇️ https://t.co/2go7rRAzZI
