Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) did not mince words when she slammed Fox News' Tucker Carlson for his recent misogynistic remarks.
On Friday night's edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the serial political instigator leveled yet another attack at the Democratic lawmaker, whom he mockingly refers to as "Sandy Cortez." Spending nearly a third of his hour-long segment ranting about Ocasio-Cortez, Carlson expressed disdain and frustration about a forthcoming book featuring the New York lawmaker.
Carlson argued that Ocasio-Cortez should not be considered a "woman of color." Pulling one of her previous Instagram videos, Carlson claimed she was nothing more than a “rich, entitled white lady.”
“There is no place on Earth outside of American colleges and newsrooms where Sandy Cortez would be recognized as a quote, woman of color, because she’s not! She’s a rich, entitled white lady,” he said. “She’s the pampered obnoxious ski bunny in the matching snowsuit, who tells you to pull up your mask, while you’re standing in the lift line at Jackson Hole. They’re all the same. It doesn’t matter what shade they are."
Carlson also went a step further grasping for straws when he took another Instagram video out of context. In the video, Ocasio-Cortez said, "Im alone today."
Picking apart the simple statement, Carlson said, "Its it just us, or does that sound like an invitation to a booty call? Maybe one step from ‘What are you wearing?’ Either way it’s a little strange, definitely over-sharing.”
