Fox News personality Brian Kilmeade was blasted on Monday for spreading a lie about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Kilmeade tweeted a photoshopped image designed to look like a tweet from Ocasio-Cortez, who is also known as AOC. The tweet claimed it was “vital” for governors to maintain coronavirus restrictions to stop Trump from being re-elected.

Per Fact Check.org:

Quote:
A phony tweet attributed to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is circulating online.

This is just the latest bogus tweet aimed at the New York Democrat; we’ve written about two others since she took office in 2019.

The recent fake tweet is being shared as a screenshot meme on various social media platforms, including Facebook, spreading the falsehood that she posted this message about the restrictions imposed on businesses because of the COVID-19 pandemic: “It’s vital that Governors maintain restrictions on businesses until after the November Elections because economic recovery will help Trump be re-elected. A few business closures or job losses is a small price to pay to be free from his presidency. #KeepUsClosed”

But Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter account shows no such post.


Rightwingers are so desperate to hang onto power and prop-up an incompetent orange clown, they'll stop at nothing to achieve their agenda. mad

Lying isn’t second nature to these folks, it’s first nature. They lie about everything in every way, even when telling the truth is in their favor. They just can’t help themselves. And, being sociopaths (if not psychopaths), they assume everyone else does too. That’s why you hear them say stuff like: “all politicians lie”; “they’re all the same”.

So then today, Tuesday, Kilmeade issued an apology and didn't even spell AOC's name correctly,

A reporter from The Hill overheard Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) confront Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) outside the Capitol in between votes Monday and called her “disgusting” for suggesting that a recent spike in New York City crime could be attributed to hungry parents shoplifting food for their families and called AOC a ‘f---ing b--ch.'

Why are conservative white men so angry? coffee

Are sacks of sh*t especially good at detecting f*cking b*tches? They do seem to love to throw that appellation around at any woman who says anything that might contradict their prejudices, point out where they are wrong or simply hurt their fee-fees.

On Edit: I forgot to include the most common trigger for that appellation: rebuffing their unwanted sexual advances.

Some folks would rather climb a tree to tell a lie than stand on the ground and tell the truth.

AOC gives me hope for the future.

And the GOP louts look like Bevis and Butthead.

That obnoxious laughter.........**shudders**

Limbaugh said it best .... conservatives don't have a spokesperson who can verbalize a convincing argument supporting conservatism, so they have to lie.
