'She does the Latina thing where she does her, you know, 'Anastasio Ocasio-Cortez, ' diGenova said.
AOC chose not to let the network get away with racism, and called The Ingraham Angle out for an angle that is insulting and unsafe.
As Alter put it, "Ocasio-Cortez has become the second most talked-about politician in America, after the President of the United States".
Touting the socialist as a pop sensation, she said: "Thousands of people tune in to watch her make black-bean soup or re-pot her houseplants on Instagram Live".More news: Powerball numbers: Did you win Saturday's $495 million lottery jackpot?
Update: One night after making a special appearance on CBS' "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert", Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez paid a visit to "Late Night With Seth Meyers". But I wouldn't hold my breath waiting if I were you.
"I'm not a Manchurian Candidate, but I do have awesome staff, and in no part thanks to the fact that we pay a living wage in our office", she said. "No, but I think it's really amusing, and the conspiracy theories are great". Ocasio-Cortez's unfavorable rating grew by 15 points from her primary victory last year to February this year.
Meyers also brought up Fox News' obsession with her, and asked whether her Fox-watching Republican colleagues ever believe the misinformation the network loves to spread about her.
"For the curious, in Latinx culture children take *both* their parents" names", she explained in another post. Though true that Netflix had bought the distribution rights to a documentary featuring AOC, called Knock Down The House, she did not, and will not see a penny.
It's not a "progressive, new thing".
