Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flips out over mocking of her name

What’s in a name? Everything for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The New York Democrat blasted Fox News host Laura Ingraham and her guest for mocking how she pronounced her name and saying she does so because it’s a “Latina thing.”

“If by ‘the Latina thing,’ she means I actually do the work instead of just talk about it, then yeah, I’m doing ‘the Latina thing,’” she wrote on her Twitter page late Wednesday. “Unless of course she‘s talking about being multilingual, which we know isn’t a ‘Latina thing.’ It’s a ‘21st century’ thing.”

Ocasio-Cortez also said that Fox News’ hosts incorrectly pronounce her name as “Cortez,” because that sounds “more ‘stereotypically’ Hispanic + probably incites more ‘anxiety’ for them.”

“Pro Tip: My last name is not ‘Cortez,’ just as theirs isn’t ‘Ingra’ or ‘Carl’ or ‘Hann,'” she said, referring to Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity.

Ingraham, on her Fox News show “The Ingraham Angle” on Tuesday, asked guest Joe diGenova if he had noticed how when Ocasio-Cortez pronounces her name “does she take on that Obama, Obama put on accents?”

“She does the Latina thing where she does her, you know, ‘Anastasio Ocasio-Cortez,'” said diGenova, a conservative lawyer, exaggerating the pronunciation.

As long as check name on the bribe money from the lobbyists clears, who cares?

In her mind, the voice of the impaler “Usa el guion, indio estupido.”
