Fox News host Tucker Carlson has questioned the credentials of Congresswoman Alexandrria Ocasio-Cortez to discuss morality, according to Newsweek. He specifically addressed AOC’s Green New Deal, which is a plan to eliminate pollution from greenhouse gas in the U.S. over the next ten years. AOC suggested she was behind this deal because she wanted a moral society.
“Wait a second... you may be wondering. How does a member of Congress who has not yet turned 30, someone who has never even raised children get the right to lecture me about morality? Well that is the difference between you and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She is a highly decent person,” Carlson said sarcastically.
Carlson then insulted MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, who held a public forum with AOC on the Green New Deal. Carlson said that Hayes is “what every man would be if feminists achieved absolute power in this country: apologetic, bespectacled and deeply, deeply concerned about global warming.”
Carlson continued, So it is official. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a moron and nasty and more self-righteous than any televangelist who ever preached a sermon on cable access. She is not impressive; she's awful.”
