Fake Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez interview defended as ‘satire’ after backlash

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Ron DeSantis

They might never serve together in Congress but Rep.

Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old former bartender who ousted 10-time incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary last month, suggested that the video looked more like a dirty trick than a joke.

He went on to criticize Ocasio-Cortez's Democratic socialist policies and for flubbing a question in a recent interview in which she criticized Israel's "occupation" of the Palestinian territories.

Denying that he was trying to play identity politics with Ocasio-Cortez to Fox News's Bill Hemmer, DeSantis said: "I would note that she referred to herself as "a girl from the Bronx" on Stephen Colbert's show".

While joking around with a poster on Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez told that poster that "My identity has been exposed".

Stuckey, who cut her teeth at Glenn Beck's network, The Blaze, responded to complaints that the hoax was misleading by claiming that it was always meant to be satirical.

Perhaps this United Nations decision slipped DeSantis' mind, as he continue on to say, "Good Lord".

The Cubs' newest reliever, Jesse Chavez , made his debut with two scoreless innings to finish out the game. Louis Cardinals are now slaughtering the rival Chicago Cubs by a score of 18-4 in the seventh inning.

The producers of the video also made it easier for viewers to mistake it for a genuine news clip by digitally altering the original footage to replace the PBS "Firing Line" logo behind Ocasio-Cortez with the logo for Stuckey's show, "Allie".

"Rep DeSantis, it seems you're confused as to 'whatever I am.' I am a Puerto Rican woman". "It's unusual you don't know what that is, given that ~75,000 Puerto Ricans have relocated to Florida in the 10 mos since Maria".

Vasquez did not say why DeSantis called Ocasio-Cortez "this girl".

"But I'm sure these new FL voters appreciate your comments!" she added.

Ever since top Democrat Joe Crowley lost his seat to progressive activist and new-comer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the NY gubernatorial primary, established politicians have repeatedly tried to discredit the 28-year-old who has already made waves because of her passion for the people and dedication to the cause.

"I didn't support Bernie Sanders for president".
