As Twitchy told you yesterday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her dumb defense of Ilhan Omar by insisting once again that any criticism of her stems from Republicans’ and conservatives’ beef with “progressive women of color.” Notably, she singled out Rupert Murdoch for his apparently substantial role in people calling her out for all the stupid crap she says. So it makes sense that today, she’s going after Fox News:
I documented six weeks of what Fox's obsessive coverage of @AOC looks like. Fox mentioned her at least 3,181 times in six weeks, and not a day went by where she wasn't brought up. This is just a small look into what Fox's relentless coverage looks like: pic.twitter.com/czbrYyPoWU

Fox News brought me up 3,000+ times in *6 weeks.*
That’s how hard they’re fighting against dignified healthcare, wages, & justice for all; and turning their firepower on the youngest Congresswoman in history to do it.

Is she a stunning and brave warrior princess or a victim of Fox News? Homegirl needs to make up her damn mind, because this constant whining about the negative coverage she receives makes her look like a petulant child. She flinches every time anyone calls her out for being ignorant or dishonest or just flat-out wrong.
Nope. That’s how many times you’ve said stupid stuff.

That’s because of your nutty ideas

That’s because you continually embarrass yourself with your lack of knowledge on any subject brought to your attention. You have ZERO rational ideas about how to solve the very issues you present.

No they bring you up because you’re crazy & have no idea what you’re saying, the financial impact it will have, or how higher wages means businesses cut jobs leaving more people without jobs and teaches people that they don’t need to earn better paying jobs, that they’re entitled

To you, dignified healthcare means stripping millions of Americans off their plans to put govt in charge.
To you, justice means guilty until proven innocent… like condemning Justice Kavanaugh w/o evidence.
And wages are UP under Prez Trump – but I don't hear you celebrating.

First of all, FNC is like the loudest and second-dumbest guy in debate class.*
…but what they’re talking about is your vision of Utopia that can only exist in fairy tales, powered by unicorn farts and paid for with leprechaun gold. https://t.co/umMnAtZz0x

And to be honest, we’re getting pretty effing sick of her complaining about being the center of attention when her only successful endeavor as a United States Representative has been making herself the center of attention.

AOC needs Fox News a lot more than Fox News needs her. If she ever had to relinquish the spotlight, she’d lose her entire raison d’être. Remind you of anyone else you know?
You seem to be paying an awful lot of attention at how many times they mention you, huh. Reminds me of a certain orange man and his obsession with the media and what they say about him.
