Dana Perino, an anchor with Fox News, stated very clearly that her patience has all but run out for Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). “She makes me mad,” stated Perino multiple times over the course of the broadcast of Tuesday’s episode of “The Five.”
Jesse Watters, her cohost, started the segment by highlighting a comment from the New York Democrat that tried to link the insane spike in violent crime to the recently expired monthly child tax credits.
“The radical left coming up with the most ridiculous excuse yet for the surge in crime: baby formula. Yeah, Jesse Jr.’s drink of choice is apparently causing people to steal like crazy and savagely murder innocent people without remorse,” claimed Watters, stating that the “asinine claim” spouted from Ocasio-Cortez.
“We run away from substantive discussions about this, we don’t want to say some of the things that are obvious, like, ‘Gee, the child-tax credit just ran out on December 31st, and now people are stealing baby formula.’”
“AOC says that,” stated Watters. “We are learning the punk who got busted for this brutal attack on an Asian model has been arrested – are you ready? – 44 times before: 44. Maybe, it’s bail reform that’s to blame, not the formula.”
“These woke Democrats are storytellers. I think that they should have a section in Congress called ‘the fiction section,’ where everyone who’s woke sits in that section of Congress,” chimed in cohost Judge Jeanine Pirro.
“Will you put Adam Schiff in there too?” questioned Wetters.
“Adam Schiff, absolutely. Ilhan Omar, the whole lot of them. They make stuff up,” stated Pirro, making the argument that people were not going out stabbing and shooting each other or throwing each other in front of trains all over the fact that they ran out of baby formula. “For anyone in Congress to say that should be embarrassed.”
Pirro went on to state that most prosecutors and elected officials like Ocasio-Cortez should be siding with the victims of the incident and not trying to excuse the assaulters.
“They do steal baby formula, because it’s called liquid gold. You sell it on the black market. It’s criminal syndicates that sell it and make a huge killing. And the feds have actually gone after these people because it’s a huge problem,” stated Watters, resulting in laughter from the rest of the hosts.
just a scant few seconds later, Watters handed the floor over to Perino, asking if she wanted to give everyone her “AOC impression.”
“She drives me insane. This makes me so mad,” started Perino, sparking more laughter from the hosts.
“It’s not Jean Valjean out there stealing bread, we’ve seen the smash and grabs. And also, why isn’t AOC commenting about the women being targeted in New York City? Where are you? Where are you on that?” questioned Perino. “The woman who was murdered in her room by the homeless guy, three priors, living in a homeless shelter is not waiting on the child tax credit. That is not why he followed her into her room, stabbed her to death, and hid under her bed.”
Perino then lamented the fact that AOC, if she took it seriously, could be a force for quite a bit of good in Congress. She drew a comparison between the congresswoman and Vice President Kamala Harris, who she stated was another prime example of a woman in power that was blowing it.
“She’s not serious. She thinks she’s too good for Congress. Maybe, she will figure out a way where she wants to do something else. She already says that she does not make enough money there. It’s hard when you have a Tesla, $174,000 a year. She said Democracy would end back in ten years, but three years ago, she said the world was going to end due to climate change, meaning we have about nine years left. Thankfully, according to her math, the world will not exist by the time democracy runs out of the hourglass.”
After another bought of laughter, Watters cheered her on: “You are good, Dana.”
“She makes me mad,” exclaimed Perino.
