Fox Business host Larry Kudlow, who served as the Director of the National Economic Council during the Trump Administration, tore into Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a few choice words on Thursday, after she criticized Joe Biden’s statement that Israel had a right to defend itself.
Ocasio-Cortez slammed Biden in a Twitter post Wednesday evening, saying, “Blanket statements like these w/ little context or acknowledgement of what precipitated this cycle of violence – namely, the expulsions of Palestinians and attacks on Al Aqsa – dehumanize Palestinians & imply the US will look the other way at human rights violations. It’s wrong.”
“By only stepping in to name Hamas’ actions – which are condemnable – & refusing to acknowledge the rights of Palestinians, Biden reinforces the false idea that Palestinians instigated this cycle of violence. This is not neutral language. It takes a side – the side of occupation,” she added.
During his Thursday monologue, Kudlow unleashed on AOC, and declared she has “no horse sense.” He said:
The most disgusting I heard today was from House socialist member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She attacks President Biden for saying Israel has a right to defend itself. Huh? By the way, “Israel has the right to defend itself” is a rather squishy, wussy statement to begin with compared to what President Trump has been saying.
But AOC can’t help herself, and she can’t live with any decent things to say about Israel. It’s pathetic. Israel is a democracy. Israel is our best ally in the region, perhaps in the world. And AOC’s pals in Palestine are a dictatorship, not one whit of democracy who want to destroy the state of Israel by pushing them out to the sea. And I must say, with respect, I guess, AOC is a woman with no horse sense at all. None.
By only stepping in to name Hamas’ actions – which are condemnable – & refusing to acknowledge the rights of Palestinians, Biden reinforces the false idea that Palestinians instigated this cycle of violence.
This is not neutral language. It takes a side – the side of occupation.
