Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Responds to Fox Business Guest Calling Her ‘The Little Girl’
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded today to a comment from Lou Dobbs guest Ed Rollins about her on Fox Business last night.
Dobbs and Rollins were discussing Rashida Tlaib‘s “impeach the motherfucker” comment when Rollins said this:
“We have an enormous class of women who have been elected… Some really interesting people and some really smart people. If you’re gonna put her out front, with her mouth, when she now has the attention she’s never had before, and you’re gonna put the little girl who wants to do pre-Reagan economics and 70% taxes, the Democrat women are gonna basically be damaged badly.”
The “little girl” he’s talking about is Ocasio-Cortez, who has floated taxing the super-wealthy up to 70% to pay for a “Green New Deal” proposal.
She responded to Rollins and joked he’s “a walking argument to tax misogyny at 100%”:
GOP loves to insult my intelligence, yet offers *this* as their best + most seasoned opposition to my policy proposals.
If anything, this dude is a walking argument to tax misogyny at 100% ?
Republicans rob everyone the opportunity of real policy debate by resorting to this. https://t.co/Yk3BTHbtxv
