On Tuesday, newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blew a gasket on Twitter after Fox News’ Tucker Carlson called her a “moron.”
“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,” he said after mocking her hypocritical statement regarding the left’s name-calling of the Tea Party.
According to Mediaite:
Carlson mostly mocked the comments from Ocasio-Cortez, including when she dismissed the idea of a growing tea party of the left and said “we’re not calling anyone names,” before adding that she finds the phrasing interesting because “the grounding of the tea party was xenophobia, the underpinnings of white supremacy.”
“Yeah, stop with the name-calling, you racist white supremacist xenophobe!” Carlson mockingly responded.
But, he told his audience, not everything she says is completely wrong, and played what he called “a fairly insightful critique of the American economy” from the New York Socialist:
“We have runaway income inequality. We are at one of our most inequal points economically speaking in American history. We are dealing with a crisis of how our economy is even made up. Our economy is increasingly financialized, which means we are making profits off of interest, off of leasing your phone, off of doing all of these things, but we aren’t producing and we aren’t innovating in the way that we need to as an economy.”
“You hate to admit it, given the source,” Carlson further said, “but try to ignore the way she said it––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’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.”
Here’s video of his comments:
Of course, Ocasio-Cortez went ballistic, apparently unable to take any form of criticism, no matter how fair.
“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,” she tweeted. “You know we’re winning when the GOP resort to vapid, personal insults.”

Apparently, the truth really hurts, at least for AOC, who conveniently forget that she she trashed Sen. Mike Lee and called the Tea Party “white supremacists.” Apparently, she thinks she’s the only one who can criticize opponents.
Twitter naturally responded:
But your fiend Ilhan Omar called the President “less than human” and you were totally ok with it. Doesn’t add up.— derek schwartz (@derek_mafs) April 2, 2019
Of course it doesn’t add up because leftists like Omar and AOC are rank hypocrites and they fully expect the liberal media to provide cover so their hypocrisy won’t go noticed.

I wouldn’t say winning since he’s been known to always do that, but the attacks from the far-left really show how much y’all aren’t winning— Steven Baker (@StevenEBaka) April 2, 2019
Well when you claim that Republicans passed the 22nd Amendment to keep FDR from another term when in fact he died in office, it wasnt passed for 2 years AFTER that happened and it wouldnt of included him in the first place because of being exempt, you are a moron...— James Hamilton (@DJOdyssey_71) April 2, 2019
Well, there is that…
One person tweeted what Twitchy called an “inconvenient truth”:
