Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was not amused by a hilarious parody video released by Allie Stuckey, CRTV, that mocked her as lacking intelligence and being so easily mislead by people.
It shows pieced together clips of Ocasio-Cortez’s actual responses from her PBS “Firing Line” interview and clips of CRTV host Allie Beth Stuckey asking questions such as “Do you have any knowledge whatsoever about how our political system works?”
The clip of Ocasio-Cortez, inserted right after the questions, shows her shaking her head no.
The video is captioned “Allie *grills* congressional hopeful and progressive it girl “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” on her socialist agenda and knowledge of government… or lack thereof.” Later, CRTV posted an update clarifying that the video is “satire created from excerpts of the viral Firing Line interview with Ocasio-Cortez.” The Wrap reported.
Ocasio-Cortez responded Tuesday on Twitter: “Republicans are so scared of me that they’re faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can’t deal with reality anymore.”
Republicans are so scared of me that they’re faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can’t deal with reality anymore.
Here’s one bonafide truth:

The Daily Wire reports:
Ocasio-Cortez’s response to the video was arguably an even bigger deal than the video itself because it shows that she is either completely clueless when it comes to recognizing satire or is comfortable lying to her followers.
“Republicans are so scared of me that they’re faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can’t deal with reality anymore,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
Ocasio-Cortez’s response to the video drew widespread mockery from nearly all corners of social media:

This statement means one of two things:
1) you actually think @conservmillen's satirical video is real
2) you know it's satire but you're feigning ignorance to rile up your base
Both of which are a bad look for you. https://t.co/vEtWUYtSX4

No one is scared of you. You’ve exposed yourself countless times. No one is scared of you.

Funniest thing I’ve seen all day. The same libs who claim they’re smart enough to run the economy, & the healthcare & education systems, are complaining because this obviously SATIRICAL clip isn’t labeled “SATIRE.” If you have a functioning brain cell you can tell this is satire. https://t.co/nMgslRMpAb
