Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Just Responded To Laura Ingraham’s Attempted Mockery

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), whose hometown is being ravaged by the COVID-19 outbreak, shut down right-wing broadcaster Laura Ingraham’s attempt to mock her claims on the coronavirus.

The New York Democrat pointed out on Twitter that deaths from the viral infection was disproportionately occurring in minority communities.

“COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities,” the lawmaker tweeted. “Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions.”

“Inequality is a comorbidity,” she added. “COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations.”

That observation and prescribed solution seemed to outrage the Fox news host, who tried to belittle Ocasio-Cortez by reminding her followers the lawmaker had once worked as a bartender.

Ocasio-Cortez responded by asking Ingraham why she had promoted unproven claims about a coronavirus treatment, and which Twitter eventually deleted as misinformation.

“Didn’t you just put a doctor on your show who faked their employment at Lenox Hill hospital and touted a COVID ‘treatment’ that you tweeted & Twitter had to remove because a man may have died trying self-administer it?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I’m sorry, why are you on TV again?”
