Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is accusing Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham of calling her by the wrong name. “Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as ‘Cortez,’ which I can only imagine is because that sounds more ‘stereotypically’ Hispanic and probably incites more ‘anxiety’ for them,” said AOC. As her poll ratings plummet, the 29-year-old made it clear what her real name is, and that’s when she instantly regretted it.  You’ll love this.

It looks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is freaking out as her poll ratings plummet to all-time lows, and she blamed Fox News. Thirty-one percent of registered voters in New York state view the freshman House Democrat favorably, while 44 percent have an unfavorable view, according to a Siena College poll released Monday.

Immediately, the former bartender blamed Fox News which she views as the only place conservatives get their information. “The reason people know more is bc Fox News has turned into ‘AOC TMZ’ (no offense to TMZ), so awareness is growing w/ GOPers,” tweeted AOC last Saturday. “We can’t be scared by that,” she added.

The problem is she is scared and that’s why she went bonkers on Fox News’ biggest hosts today. The truth is AOC is polling badly with all her constituents even though she claims it’s just old white guys. So, she decided to accuse Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham of botching her name purposely and accusing them of a veiled racist act.

“Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked Fox News, claiming hosts on that network intentionally called her by the wrong name,” the Daily Caller reports.

See she specifically mentioned Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity, referring to them as “Ingra,” “Carl,” and “Hann” to drive her point home. “My last name is Ocasio-Cortez. Full stop. That’s my name. No, you can’t say ‘Cortez.’ I’ve never used that in my life. ‘Cortez’ is referring to someone else. Even if they‘re trying to be rude + wrong, my dad’s last name was Ocasio anyway. (His name was hyphenated too, though),” adds the New York Congresswoman.

There’s only one problem with her accusation: it appears to be false. Tom Elliott, the founder of Grabien media-clipping service, noted that in a search from the beginning of March to the current date — 20 days worth of programming — Ingraham had never once referred to the freshman lawmaker as “Cortez,” the Daily Caller adds.

The Daily Caller performed a similar search over the same time period and discovered that Carlson had never addressed Ocasio-Cortez by any name other than “Ocasio-Cortez” or “AOC,” which she also said was fine by her standards.

Yet another search revealed that the only possible offender was Hannity, who referred to Ocasio-Cortez by just the second half of her last name just twice in 20 days. He named her correctly well over 100 times in that same timeframe, so it may be reasonable to assume that he wasn’t trying to call her by “the wrong name.”

“The only person I’ve noticed who obsesses over AOC being Hispanic is AOC herself. It’s a constant topic. Conservative media generally focus on her overzealous Green New Deal, her sketchy campaign finance issues, and her frequent hypocrisy,” said Tom Elliot.

Well, Americans weren’t impressed with AOC’s name blame game. “Jeepers, you are sensitive! Listen, you might want to start getting used to people calling you by names that aren’t Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They are going to get a lot worse, especially if you keep talking so much,” tweeted Todd Thomas.

Many decided to make her squirm like Giovanni Del Gotto who tweeted to AOC, “Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez Cortez…”

“For whatever reason, my computer auto-corrects to Occasional Cortex every time I try to type your name….. Funny how that happens,” posted Samuel Helms to AOC.

When will the beleaguered Congresswoman learn? She comes off like a petulant child whining as if someone hurt her politically correct feelings when the truth is no one called her by the wrong name. She has three names as far as we can see, and any one of them will do. In fact, this is America so we will call her by whatever name we please.

This is why no 29-year-old leftist should be near the halls of Congress. She’s making complaints about nothing while the country has real issues she fails to address. Well, at least we know calling her “Cortez” makes her go nuts, so that’s what everyone should call her from now on. It’s the least we can do as a response to her bringing us the Green New Deal.
