Tucker Carlson, after somehow not getting fired for defending child rape on a radio show, has been even more boldly obnoxious lately, attacking everyone in sight. In addition to a bizarre attack on MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and his glasses, he went hard after Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, calling her “nasty” and “a moron” and “awful” and “more self-righteous than any televangelist who ever preached a sermon on cable access.” He said, while preaching on TV.
Ocasio-Cortez only had one thing to say to Tucker.
You mad bro? ? https://t.co/hK8tDxX3Je— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 2, 2019
The freshman congresswoman recently called out a supportive audience member at a town hall for calling former Representative Bob Inglis a moron, calling the insult “unacceptable,” because the AOC is taking the high road. Besides, why call people names when you can easily troll the people calling you names with three simple words guaranteed to make anyone who is angry even angrier.
Tucker’s tirade stemmed from Ocasio-Cortez’s comments after vowing not to be a name-caller like Tucker in which she dismissed the idea that she’s part of some kind of leftist Tea Party.
“People say Tea Party of the left, and I find this phrase very interesting,” she said. “The phrasing is very interesting because the grounding of the Tea Party was xenophobia, the underpinnings of white supremacy.”
Tucker’s response to this, which he surely thought was very clever, was to engage in some mocking role play.
“Stop with the name-calling, you racist white supremacist xenophobe!” he exclaimed.
Of course, Ocasio-Cortez did not call anybody a racist white supremacist xenophobe, and such descriptors are different from calling someone a “moron,” but we can’t expect a man like Tucker Carlson to grasp nuance, can we? We can’t even expect him to refrain from engaging in “nasty woman” rhetoric. How long before this guy runs for President as Trump 2.0?
Ocasio-Cortez may be taking the high road, but that doesn’t mean we all have to. Get on it, Twitter.

People tend to get mad at things they don't understand, and since he's not a very intelligent person...he ends up getting mad quite a lot.— Autumn Green (@_Autumn_Green_) April 2, 2019
He’s been mad since they took his lunch money all through middle school....— Edgar S Morales (@DeHousingGuy) April 2, 2019
Tucker Carlson is afraid of women. Let's push him into a full fledged melt down! It really doesn't take much. ? Look at all these white men try to bring AOC down and they simply can't do it. It's beautiful!— Tess Deco (@TessDeco) April 2, 2019
Keep being mad, Tucker.
