The Fox News Fetish for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Keeps Getting Creepier: Ivanka Trump Edition

Ever since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was elected last November, the right-wing media has been beside themselves trying to slander her as an ignorant and un-American little brown girl who has no business having an opinion, much less serving in Congress. And no one has been more determined to disseminate this disparagement than Fox News.

Fox News, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson

Consequently, the State TV network reached out to Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, to deliver the administration’s smackdown on Ocasio-Cortez. Unfortunately, her interview merely revealed that she is a spoiled rich kid with no comprehension of what ordinary Americans are experiencing. She tried to respond to Ocasio-Cortez’s announcement that she intended to pay her staff a {gasp} living wage. Previously on Fox News this was greeted with a pathetic display of math illiteracy. And Ivanka’s response was equally embarrassing:

“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last 4 years. People want to work for what they get. So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want.”

So a woman who has lived her entire life off of what she was given by daddy is certain that other Americans wouldn’t want fair compensation for their work, which is all that Ocasio-Cortez is proposing. If this is what Ivanka learned from four years of traveling around the country, she has a severe learning disability. But she does have an excellent grasp of the sort of harebrained talking points required to be a Fox News pundit.

The obsession that Fox News is nursing every day is evidence that Ocasio-Cortez is one of the new class of representatives who Fox fears the most. There is no other explanation for how maniacally focused they are on her. She was only sworn in a month and a half ago, but Fox’s most prominent hosts are fixated squarely on her every word (as well as her youth, clothes, and dancing ability). The entire primetime roster on Fox all featured her on their programs Monday night. They were also transcribed into op-eds for the Fox website. The amusingly alarmist headlines and ledes were:

  • Sean Hannity: It’s scary how prominent Dems, the media are supporting Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist views.
    “We are once again featuring the 29-year-old socialist from New York who is both revered and feared inside her own party. […] But now, she is taking her insane views even a step further.”
  • Laura Ingraham: Spike Lee, Smollett, Ocasio-Cortez and her mini-mes tell us lots about modern day liberalism.
    “Like most of today’s social justice warriors, Ocasio-Cortez truly believes she is always morally right. And that notion entitles her to be one of the leaders of not the #MeToo movement, but the ‘Me-me-me’ movement.”
  • Tucker Carlson: How dumb, arrogant Ocasio-Cortez became the boss of the Democratic Party
    “It’s a measure of how cowardly impassive everyone has become all of a sudden that a chorus of right-thinking Democrats hasn’t told this idiotic windbag to be quiet and take a seat.”

These are the extreme, unhinged, and disrespectful lengths that the Foxies will go to in order to malign a committed, intelligent young woman who stepped up to serve her country. And the fear that she has stirred in their shriveled hearts is unmistakable. This is the sort of full-court press that the right generally reserves for Kenyan-born, terrorist-sympathizing, Muslim atheist commies who stole the presidency by actually getting a majority of the popular vote.

Ocasio-Cortez has earned this vitriol in record time. She should be proud that she has these dimwits from Fox News stalking her. It’s a validation of her effectiveness as an activist and a communicator. And at the same time it exposes Fox as a puerile confederacy of dunces who are utterly incapable of making a coherent response to someone they belittle as immature and inexperienced. Which, by the way, is a much better description of their Dear Leader, Donald Trump.

  1. I think they’re having trouble with her not being blonde and wearing short skirts.

  2. Sometime when Faux News was reporting that AOC was paying a decent wage to her staff(s), Faux News was saying AOC was paying $50,000 to $60,000 each one serving her. They also said that the pay was $15.00 and hour. Well, there are 2080 working hours in a year so that means (times 15) they are paid $31,200 per annum which to me is barely a living wage.

  3. If there is a problem with AOC at all, it’s that she’s a wee bit of a chatterbox; quick to tweet and quick to make questionable statements. Naturally, the Reich takes advantage of this whenever possible. But she is also quick to take steps towards the future, which has always frightened the Reich. They don’t understand AOC, what she stands for, and what she is even doing. But what she IS doing is very intelligent and is very necessary; which ALSO frightens the Reich since it goes against their 19th century principles.

    As I said before, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is everything the Reich fears: she is a competent, capable politician who is NOT Hillary. She really does need to curb her tongue a little, as she does say things that reinforce the bullshyt “socialist” label, and she has yet to really demonstrate her capabilities yet. In the end, she’s still a freshman with limited influence who nevertheless terrifies the Reich no matter what she does. And for that, we must say, more power to her.

    But, we should always keep in mind that the Reich makes excuses when Their Beloved God is ALSO quick to tweet and quicker to make questionable statements.

    • I’m not sure why, but your comment went into the “moderation” queue. It’s posted now. I’ll try to keep an eye on it to see if it happens again. Don’t take it personally 😉

      • No worries. I just thought it odd. When it wouldn’t post, I went over it to make sure I wasn’t using any questionable language, and I wasn’t. At least you’re not as bad as the 12 year old nun over at MMFA. When MM puts a post on hold, it STAYS there forever. 🙂

        Thanks for looking into this.

  4. In the meantime, have fun with Seanny the Cowardly Manatee:
    Media Matters: Sean Hannity attacks Democrats for questioning Michael Cohen without disclosing he was one of Cohen’s clients

    So, now Michael Cohen is the Democrats’ new best friend forever. Sadly, he is going to report to prison in May, to serve a multi-year sentence. And you know what?

    He and his family have been through an awful lot, frankly, Hell, and Democrats, in my opinion, are just shamefully using him as a political prop, not to learn anything new, but once again to bludgeon President Trump, to make him look bad, while he’s in the middle of high-stakes historic negotiations abroad here in Vietnam to keep the world safer.

    Whatever happened to politics ending at the water’s edge? You know, it is a pretty heartless act by a group of people just blinded by all things Trump. And as of for tomorrow, as a kangaroo court plays out on Capitol Hill, President Trump is going to be fighting for America’s interest abroad, flying 25 hours to try and make the world a safer place.

    If Seanny didn’t have his hypocrisy, he’d have no principles at all.

  5. Anti-American media, you mean. It’s time to CALL them what they are. They are sacks of s*it that HATE this country and want EVERYONE not rich or white, dead.

  6. I wouldn’t mind be given a minimum guaranteed wage considering all the free money we have given to the wealthy people and corporations for the last 38 years and yet, they refuse to raise the wages of the rest of the population. If the wealthy people and business people had given their workers very generous raises and lavish pensions over last 38 years, we would have no need for things like Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, various government assistance programs, etc.
