On the April 4 edition of Fox Business' Varney & Co, host Stuart Varney and his fellow reporters mocked New York Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez for her recent Instagram livestream, in which she complained about living in an unfurnished apartment.
“She sips on wine, assembled furniture, while broadcasting on Instagram live video,” Varney said.
Fox Business reporter Ashley Webster called Ocasio-Cortez "quite clever at using social media."
“It should be pointed out though that there are no low income housing opportunities in her new building down in Washington, D.C.,” she continued. “But there is a Whole Foods, which is owned by? Amazon.” Webster then criticizes AOC for living “the kind of life she talks out about so much,” presumably because there is a Whole Foods nearby.
Apparently, the idea of living in an unfurnished apartment was “appalling” to some members of Fox Business.
“Our producer, Cristine Ambrose, is appalled at that video,” Varney said. “What is a congresswoman doing in an unfurnished apartment, you know, what's she doing? Appalled.”
Fox Business host Elizabeth MacDonald goes on to criticize AOC for simultaneously riding in planes to travel and fighting for the Green New Deal.
“I love how she was complaining about $7 croissants, comparing them to the minimum wage in an airport,” she said. “What's she doing flying a plane, if she's about the Green New Deal? What was she in the airport for?”
