“So it’s official. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a moron and nasty and more self-righteous than any televangelist who ever preached a sermon on cable access. She’s not impressive, she’s awful,” said Carlson will commenting on Ocasio-Cortez’s Friday MSNBC town tall to discuss her Green New Deal.

Ocasio-Cortez resonded to Carlson on Twitter on Tuesday, writing, “When someone called a fmr Republican Congressman a “moron” at our televised town hall, I shut it down immediately - bc I believe our policies can win on merit, & can be improved w/ productive discourse.

You know we’re winning when the GOP resort to vapid, personal insults.”

Oddly enough, Carlson, who has recently been pitching worker-centered economic policy as praised Ocasio-Cortez later in the segment for her “fairly insightful critique of the American economy.”
