‘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.

Beto O’Rourke’s ‘war tax’ policy proposal is straight out of ‘Starship Troopers’

Published

on

Amid an overcrowded Democratic presidential candidate field, it's hard to distinguish yourself from the pack if you don't slot easily into the scale that runs from "pro-corporate centrist" to "left-populist." If you're former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke —  who falls somewhere in the middle, politically, and somewhere towards the top, looks-wise — you pull a militaristic policy proposal out of your hat that recalls some of the most campy pseudo-fascist sci-fi ever written.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
