Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Tucker Carlson Mocking Her and Calling Her a ‘Moron’: ‘You Mad Bro?’


Fox News’ Tucker Carlson mocked Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and called her a “moron” for comments she made at MSNBC’s Green New Deal town hall last week.

Carlson did credit her for an “insightful critique” on the economy, but mostly mocked the New York congresswoman and said, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a moron and nasty and more self-righteous than any televangelist who ever preached a sermon on cable access. She’s not impressive, she’s awful.”

(He also mocked Chris Hayes, the host of that town hall, as “what every man would be if feminists ever achieved absolute power in this country.”)

This morning Ocasio-Cortez responded by saying, “You know we’re winning when the GOP resort to vapid, personal insults.”

Tonight she was a little more direct, tweeting, “You mad bro?”
