Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was elected to congress in 2018. While she is very progressive and quite telegenic, she is only one of 219 Democrats in the House of Representatives. And since she was elected, Fox News has dedicated a large part of it’s programming to her.
Now one of the Fox News network dedicates more time to AOC than Tucker Carlson. And now that he has two shows, you can plan on hearing plenty more about the New York Rep. And despite his obsession with her, Carlson today asked his viewers, “who cares what she thinks.”
Carlson began, “She’s totally reckless. She’s a racist, openly. She wants to change the population, she wants her party to be more powerful. I get it. But we’re allowing her and people like her to do that because we are afraid of being called names.”
"Who cares what she thinks?! … I don't care whatever that woman's name thinks," Tucker Carlson says about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a woman he has obsessively covered for 2+ years during a minute-long rant specifically aimed at AOC. pic.twitter.com/xwRI52L36u

The Fox host continued his rant:
“Who cares what she thinks? She’s totally reckless. She’s a racist, openly. I think the key is though is to think clearly about what is best for the United States. Obviously, the border policy now is a disaster, to be fair, it’s been a disaster for a long time. It doesn’t serve the interest of most Americans, and it won’t because people like that use the magic word, ‘racism,’ to cow the rest of the country into submission. She wants to change the population, she wants her party to be more powerful. I get it. But we’re allowing her and people like her to do that because we are afraid of being called names.”
