Fox News host Tucker Carlson took an opportunity on his network Thursday to wonder out loud why anyone in their right mind would give hoots in hell over what Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks about anything, and then worried what it means that this young woman has such a prominent voice in national politics.
We’ve been wondering the same exact thing, Tucker.
Carlson appeared on the “Outnumbered” program on Fox News where he responded to AOC’s most recent call that migrants who have been separated under the former Trump administration should be given reparations.
“It’s just interesting to come to a place where a low-IQ race-baiter like that has an important voice in national policy,” Carlson stated during the program. “Like, who cares what she thinks?”
Further describing the New York congresswoman as “totally reckless” and an open “racist,” Carlson advised that the key to thinking clearly about the worsening immigration crisis is to discern “what’s best for the United States.”advertisement — content continues below
“Obviously the border policy now is a disaster,” he said. “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 that use the magic word, which is ‘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’re afraid of being called names.”
“Until decent people shed their fear of being smeared by someone whose opinion you really shouldn’t care about, we’re never going to have a rational immigration policy that helps everybody,” said the host.
Carlson also went on to point out that the current border crisis isn’t helping the countries these people are fleeing from either.
“How does it help Ecuador or El Salvador or Guatemala, or any of the countries from which these people are coming, to have your most ambitious people leave? It’s a disaster for them, too, and for us. It doesn’t help any good person to have this kind of uncontrolled migration into our country,” the Fox News host said.
“I don’t care what whatever that woman’s name is thinks,” Carlson said finishing up his spiel. “And no one should care what she thinks.”

Tucker has a great point. Why in the world would anyone care about what this young woman has to say? She’s proven time and time again that she doesn’t understand our country, our way of life, and how our government works.
She’s completely in over her head by serving in Congress. She’s done more bad than good during her time in office and basically does nothing other than promote far-left talking points.
In reality, no one should be taking her seriously. And yet, somehow, she’s popular. Our world doesn’t make sense anymore.
