Earlier this month, after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scored her shocking disgruntled first win over Republican Joe Crowley in New York 14, Fox News & # 39; s Sean Hannity brought her platform to the screen. The list of policy proposals that was to frighten Fox viewers included Medicare for all, women's rights, and the most innocuous of all, "Assist Senior Citizens."
"Pretty much!", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted along with Hannity screenshot.
Now the network seems to have done it again. In a segment on Tuesday morning with Daily Caller Associate Editor Virginia Kruta – first reported by ThinkProgress & # 39; Aaron Rupar- Fox & Friends set out to Ocasio-Cortez & # 39; To portray the message as dangerous, but possibly the opposite is achieved.
Over the weekend, self-proclaimed "conservative" writer Kruta attended a rally in St. Louis where Ocasio-Cortez bumped into Cori Bush, which this week aims to depose seven-year-old incumbent William "Lacy" Clay Jr. in a Democratic prefix for Missouri's 1
Kruta told the Fox & Friends hosts she went to the rally to "see what it was about" and "why the news resonated". Asked Why Voters Care about a Democratic Socialist She added, "They talk about things everyone wants, especially if you're a parent, they talk about education for your kids, health care for your kids, things, who you want. "
" If you're not really paying attention to how you pay for it, or the rest of it, it's easy to fall into that trap and say, 'My kids deserve that' and 'Well, maybe the government should be responsible for helping me with this, "said Kruta, writing in her article for The Daily Caller that she could see" how easy it would be to be one of those who struggled to make ends meet To accept the idea that a "living wage" is a human right. "
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt wanted to know how Kruta felt" as a conservative ":" Were you angry? Were you more dressed? "
" I felt uncomfortable most of the time because I was surrounded by a group of people who talked about how they got involved because they were tired of being angry all the time. It seems to be so much effort to be angry about everything, rather than focusing on what you could do to change it.
After the segment aired, Ocasio-Cortez happily shared the "Breaking News" on Twitter : "The Conservative is going to our @CoriBush rally in St. Louis and … is inspired? And then … is it annoying … to be inspired by a Democrat?
She finished her tweet with the crying laughing emoji.
