‘They just want to create havoc’: Fox News whines Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ‘like a bull in a china shop’

Published

On Thanksgiving, Fox News continued their panic over Democrats capturing control of the House of Representatives.

Fox Business Network personality Charles Payne, who was filling in during the holiday, was concerned that Democrats would provide oversight of President Donald Trump.

“You’ve got these older, established Democrats who’ve seen what’s happened in the past, they know it’s a risky political move,” he argued.

“Whereas the upstarts, the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s of the world, maybe they just don’t know, they’re like bulls in a china shop, they just want to create havoc,” Payne suggested.

“Right,” said Phil Wegmann of the conservative Washington Examiner.

“The question for Republicans is how do they want to respond,” Wegmann said. “Are they going to continue with a nice-guy sort-of schtick, like we saw out of Paul Ryan (R-WI) — who is a lovable policy wonk — or Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who is, you know, the affable friend of everybody in Congress or are they going to respond like Newt Gingrich would have and really bring the hammer down.”

Wegmann’s publication, the Washington Examiner, was recently in a scandal after reporter Eddie Scary posted a widely-criticized picture of Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez’s posterior.

The organisation which helped organise Sunday's march said around 100 people were due to take part in the event, set to take place as the UN gathers youth activists and world leaders in New York to mull the action needed to curb global warming.

Security forces fired live rounds at protesters calling for the ouster of Egyptian president: report

Published

on

Egyptian security forces clashed with hundreds of anti-government protesters in the port city of Suez on Saturday, firing tear gas and live rounds, said several residents who participated in the demonstrations.

A heavy security presence was also maintained in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of Egypt's 2011 revolution, after protests in several cities called for the removal of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Such demonstrations are rare after Egypt effectively banned protests under a law passed following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi.
