Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck Applaud Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Seems to Care More About People Than Power’

It appears that strange bedfellows emerge on Twitter on Friday nights.

After the shocking victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the New York District 14 primary against longtime top Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley, Bill O’Reilly took to Twitter earlier in the day and defended the candidate from the being “derided” by Republicans.

“I have heard some Republicans deride Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and I think that’s a mistake,” O’Reilly tweeted. “She won by outworking long time Democratic Congressman Joseph Crowley and seems to care more about people than power. A good thing for any politician.”

Glenn Beck “totally” agreed with O’Reilly.

“[She] seems genuine and honestly trying to do what she believes is right,” Beck said. “I completely disagree with her solutions, but she is listening to her community. I would rather debate an open socialist than those who hide what they believe.”

Beck’s tweet caught the attention of the candidate herself.

Will we see an encounter between Glenn Beck and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?
