'Pretty Much!': Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Mockingly Posts Fox News Chart About Her

Democratic U.S. Congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used Twitter on Monday to take a swipe at Fox News while firming up support with her base.


The 28-year old who last week unseated a 10-term New York Democratic icon retweeted a Fox News graphic that first appeared on Sean Hannity's show last Wednesday, detailing her platform – or what Hannity says is her platform.

Hannity framed these positions as somehow bad, and "the future" of the Democratic Party.

Media Matters for America Senior Researcher Andrew Lawrence tweeted out the video and the graphic, later saying: "Honestly, find me one thing on that list that isn't a winning issue."

On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez weighed in, mocking Fox News while confirming most of Hannity's claims.

"Pretty much!" she tweeted.
