AOC just put Laura Ingraham in her place after she tried to pick on her again
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put out a statement earlier today that she rarely if ever blocks people on social media after Columbia University released a public letter urging the congresswoman to not block people "on the basis of viewpoint."
Here is what she said:
"1. I have 5.2 million followers. Less than 20 accounts are blocked for ongoing harassment. 0 are my constituents.
2. Harassment is not a viewpoint. Some accounts, like the Daily Caller, posted fake nude photos of me & abused my comments to spread it. No one is entitled to abuse."
Fox host Laura Ingraham thought she'd get cute with AOC and replied:
“Fewer” than 20 accounts...." as if to somehow taunt her. Laura was probably bored on social media or just looking for trouble.
AOC responded right back:
"See? You’re a neo-Nazi fan favorite and I don’t block you for defending white supremacist viewpoints and mocking gun violence survivors."
This isn't the first time AOC has had to put Ingraham in her place.
When Laura and guest Joe Digenova made fun of her just a few months ago, AOC did her best to get the last laugh.
“She does the Latina thing where she does her, you know, ’Anastasio Ocasio-Cortez,” diGenova said, while mocking her accent and misstating her name.
"If by ‘the Latina thing,’ she means I actually do the work instead of just talk about it, then yeah, I’m doing 'the Latina thing,'" AOC responded. "Unless of course she's talking about being multilingual, which we know isn’t a ‘Latina thing.’ It’s a ‘21st century’ thing."
AOC then called out Fox News for referring to her as only "Cortez."
"My last name is Ocasio-Cortez. Full stop. That’s my name," she responded.
By the way: Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as “Cortez,” which I can only imagine is bc that sounds more ‘stereo-typically’ Hispanic + probably incites more ‘anxiety’ for them.
Pro Tip:My last name is not “Cortez,” just as theirs isn’t “Ingra” or “Carl” or “Hann.”
