Ocasio-Cortez makes fun of Fox News' 'obsession' with her


WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joked on Twitter about Fox News' recent "obsession" with discussing her.

The representative-elect responded to a tweet about a "four-person panel talking about [her] shoes in primetime" on Fox News. She replied in Spanish with lyrics that translate to, "No it's not love. What you feel, it's called obsession." She added in a follow-up that "monolingual friends" could substitute Mariah Carey's "Obsessed."

Another Twitter user responded to her Spanish tweet, joking that she was making Fox News "hire a translator just to understand [her] roasts." Ocasio-Cortez mocked Fox News in the next post.

Dr. Wendy Osefo, who said she was one of the panelists discussing Ocasio-Cortez's shoes, tweeted in response that they also talked about how the representative has earned a place in history books. The commentator, who also appears on CNN and MSNBC in addition to Fox, criticized the tweet for trying to create a narrative.

Ocasio-Cortez has been critical of Fox News for several weeks since a panel discussed her wardrobe choices and financial situation.
