Ben Shapiro Shares His Own ‘Sit Down’ With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez… And It’s Pretty Hilarious
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro debuted his own “sit down” with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the latest sensation among progressives.
Last week, CRTV host Allie Beth Stuckey posted a video that instantly went viral of a fake interview she conducted with the Democratic Socialist candidate, which sparked outrage among non-conservatives since she wasn’t overt enough that her video was in fact satire.
Well now, Shapiro debuted a clip of his interesting exchange with Ocasio-Cortez.

“I finally had the opportunity to sit down with @Ocasio2018 for the Sunday Special,” Shapiro tweeted to his over 1 million followers, “and it went great!”
In case you couldn’t tell, Shapiro’s “interview” is also fake.
Conservative Twitter had some fun lampooning the over-the-top reactions to the first “interview” with Ocasio-Cortez.
OMG THIS ISN’T REAL, IT HAS BEEN HEAVILY EDITED, THIS IS NOT A DRILL, IT IS NOT LABELED SATIRE, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPENINGhttps://t.co/9TSirw5ekj

Ben, this is purposefully deceitful, and there isn’t even a warning. Trying to pass this off as real news is literally Hitler. https://t.co/Qv1MIFKMZt

Republicans are so scared of socialists that they’re faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can’t deal with reality anymore!
Here’s one bonafide truth:

Even Stuckey declared that she had started a “movement.”
