WATCH: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “I Set Up A Special Hotline” After Sarah Palin’s Attack

Sarah Palin doesn’t think that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a very good feminist. Fortunately, AOC isn’t looking for Palin’s approval, and has an invitation for the former Governor of Alaska.

Palin appeared on Fox News to give her views on Ocasio-Cortez’s use of inclusive language when talking about pregnancy and related reproductive concerns. AOC had used the phrase “menstruating person,” which is inclusive of women who may get pregnant, as well as transgender men and nonbinary people, many of whom have reproductive systems that include uteruses, and so are also affected by anti-choice legislation.

Palin accused her of “milking this” and being a “fake feminist” — echoing common complaints that trans excluders use when upset at others being more inclusive and accepting of trans and NB individuals.

“That’s not equality, right? Oh man, don’t even get me started on this…she should be embarrassed to even have tried to bring up an issue like that…she’s so off-base politically, but off-base even in this analogy, or whatever it is that she’s throwing out there.”

Undaunted, AOC sent a video message right back, letting Palin know that if she’s so upset about the Representative from New York speaking to represent the people who elected her,she can call a special hotline: 1-800-CRY-NOW.

To Palin and other critics, she says, “Yes, I am a mouthpiece for New York’s 14th Congressional District,” and anyone upset at it, she suggests, is welcome to stay upset, but it’s not changing her, or her plans.
