Ocasio-Cortez Fires Back at Laura Ingraham For Posting ‘Wack’ Billboard That Criticizes Her Over Amazon HQ2


Fox News host Laura Ingraham posted a photo of a billboard up in Times Square that criticizes Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over Amazon pulling out of its HQ2 expansion in New York.

The billboard — funded by Job Creators Network, a conservative advocacy group — calls out the freshman Democrat for opposing Amazon’s move.

Ocasio-Cortez replied on Twitter: “Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers).”

If you’re a regular reader of Breitbart, a website funded by the Mercer family, you might recognize Job Creators Network from the frequent articles the website used to run promoting the group — which is also funded by the Mercer family.

In her tweets, Ocasio-Cortez also made sure to point out that Times Square is the worst. She posted an iconic clip of The Office‘s Michael Scott calling one particular part of the Square — featuring a gigantic Red Lobster and equally mammoth Bubba Gump Shrimp — “the heart of civilization.”
