'She's Betraying Her Constituency': Gutfeld, 'The Five' on Ocasio-Cortez's Attack of Trump Address
Greg Gutfeld said that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was "betraying her constituency" by remarks she made following President Trump's national address on border security.
The freshman congresswoman from South Bronx, New York, appeared on MSNBC and blasted Trump, claiming there were multiple "falsehoods" in his remarks.
She also accused Trump and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency of "systematically" violating human rights at the border.
"Those women and children trying to come here with nothing but the shirts on their back to create an opportunity and to provide for this nation are acting more in an American tradition than this president is right now," Ocasio-Cortez stated.
Jesse Watters claimed he was getting "AOC fatigue" and that he's "kind of over" the Democrat.
"It's the kind of stuff you hear your average college Democrat say and you kind of just roll your eyes," he said. "Now she's a member of Congress, training wheels are off. She popping wheelies through the country."
Trump characterized the situation at the southern border as a "humanitarian and security crisis" during his prime-time address Tuesday.
Greg Gutfeld described Ocasio-Cortez as the Donald Trump of the Democratic Party, because she's galvanizing social media through "extreme pronouncements."
"Every morning she gets up and she says 'what's my lock her up? What's my build the wall?' And she comes up with something every day that ends up on shows like this," he said.
He added, though, that Ocasio-Cortez is actually "betraying her constituency" with her remarks.
"Cheap labor hurts minorities or people that are on the lower rung of the ladder trying to get a job," he said, adding that someone should tell Ocasio-Cortez that her ideas are antiquated.
"[Her] ideas are as dead as the socialism of the past," he said.
