Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, has praised the use of the social networks of Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, praising the way she responds to the Republican attacks by criticizing them again.
Appearing on CNN Reliable sources on Sunday, uygur emphasized the skill with which the elected representative of 29 years of New York defends herself using social platforms popular among millennials like Instagram and Twitter.
"She does not care what the Republicans think about her," the journalist said. "She welcomes his attacks and uses social networks as a jiu-jitsu to turn their attacks against them," he added.
"So they say she's a socialist who is in favor of Medicare for everyone," he said, citing an example of a GOP attack. "She says," Fantastic, yes! "Seventy percent of the country agrees with Medicare for all, in fact, 52 percent of Republicans agree with Medicare for everyone, please spread that. Fox News everywhere. "
Highlighting the advantage that Ocasio-Cortez, a proudly progressive politician, has over Republicans and Democrats, Uygur said he is not in debt to any powerful lobby group. He argued that this allows him to say and do things that the Democrats in the establishments fear or do not want.
"She is disconnected from donors," he explained. "She can be a lot braver than the Democratic average in Congress," arguing that Democrats also worry when she attacks Republican Party politicians for receiving contributions from groups representing corporate interests.
"She does not take any money from a big donor like that," Uygur said. "She can criticize Republicans for everything she likes, and drives Fox News crazy."
Ocasio-Cortez, who will officially take office in January, made fun of Fox News on Sunday, after the channel on the right transmitted a segment that featured a panel discussing his shoes and costumes. Sharing a tweet of a supporter who points to the segment, the elected congresswoman tweeted the lyrics of songs in Spanish of the musical act Aventura, which translated into "No, it's not love, what you feel is called obsession".
When another supporter said that Fox News would have to hire a translator to understand his response, Ocasio-Cortez pointed again to the channel.
"Do not worry, Fox News has made it clear that they are far superior to + smarter than me, whom they called a 'small and simple person'. So, I'm sure I'm getting to day in the languages spoken. "It will not be a problem for them," he wrote. "One down. Only a few more!
Last week, after Fox News broadcast a segment in which it was clbadified as "a bull in a Chinese store," Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter To welcome the attempt of an insult.
"I'm fine to be called a bull in a china shop, because the policy that responds to special interests rather than the Americans * should * be interrupted," he wrote: "Also, the idea that the same people who bow to Trump They are clinging "their pearls are laughable," he added. "Well, that's how they should feel."
