Fox Host Kennedy: Ocasio-Cortez’s Livestreams Show How ‘Empty’ Her ‘Brain is’


In a segment on today’s Outnumbered, Fox Business host Lisa Kennedy said she likes Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s live-tweets and Instagram livestreams because they show “how empty headed she really is.”

Kennedy, who made the comments during a segment on Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter fights with Donald Trump Jr., mocked the congresswoman-to-be right after Fox News contributor and token liberal Jessica Tarlov praised her for transparency.

“She’s doing something very important for transparency in Congress with the live tweeting of everything that’s going on,” Tarlov said, just after criticizing her politics for being too far left. “I like that she’s doing the videos, really involving her constituents. She said, ‘You sent me here, this is what’s really going on.’ I think that’s valuable for a public that doesn’t trust people who hold elected office.”

“I like the videos because she shows how empty headed she really is, and her brain is as empty as socialism itself,” remarked Kennedy.

She continued by comparing Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter trolling to Donald Trump’s, claiming the young politician is just trying to copy the president but failing:

“I do agree with you that people who think they are going to punch the president in the same manner, as hard as he does — I think they create problems for themselves. It’s very inauthentic. Trying to fight the president or members of his family the way that he does — it doesn’t make a lot of sense, and she needs to revert back to what it was about her that resonated with voters, that allowed her to unseat a popular long term incumbent. In a primary. I think she has gotten away from that, and she’s bought into her own mystique, which is certainly been tarnished a bit.”

As for the Twitter beef between Trump Jr. and Ocasio Cortez, the first-son shared a meme mocking the Democratic Socialist on Instagram, to-which she responded to on Twitter by bringing up Democrats’ future subpoena powers.
