WHITE MEN MANSPLAINING

‘Quiet, Quiet, Learn Something’: Fox & Friends Tells Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to ‘Grow Up’

White Men Mansplaining to a Duly-Elected Sitting US Congresswoman

Fox & Friends” mounted an all-out campaign Tuesday morning to attack sitting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). The message: Sit Down. Be Quiet. Learn Something. Grow up.

Between Trump BFF Pete Hegseth, Brian Kilmeade, and video from Rush Limbaugh, the three men decided it was time to mansplain to AOC.

Kilmeade, who didn’t even know Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s age (she is 29), accused Democrats of “kowtowing” to the Congresswoman from the Bronx and Queens, while deciding the Green New Deal, which AOC is sponsoring in the House, is “not plausible.”

They ran video of Rush Limbaugh screaming that AOC “just keeps spewing this stuff,” referring to her policies. He described her as being ignorant, unreasonable, and, “blatantly wrong about practically everything.”

“Her ideas take off because there’s nobody willing to say, ‘You don’t know what you’re talking about. Be quiet. Come back when you grow up.'”

Later, Trump BFF Pete Hegseth, most recently in the news for announcing he has not washed his hands in a decade, chimed in to say, “It’s like your kids spew nonsense at you, and you’re like ‘quiet, quiet, learn something before you come back to me.'”

Last month Kilmeade went berserk over undocumented immigrant children attending local schools across the country who are trying to learn English.
