The continued popularity of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to really bother a lot of hosts at Fox News, many of whom are going to outrageous lengths to destroy her.
Case in point: Fox News contributor Dagen McDowell, who used her appearance on Tuesday’s episode of “Outnumbered” to trash the congresswoman.
The panel was discussing whether an endorsement by AOC would benefit Democratic candidates like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, when McDowell took issue with a comment by fellow contributor Juan Williams.
“Juan, first up, does her endorsement matter if you’re trying to win the White House?” McDowell asked, before starting to pick apart the congresswoman. “She is a socialist from New York City, she photographs well, she speaks with her hands, but beyond that, does she matter?”

McDowell got even cattier toward the end of the segment when she obliquely said, “Beauty fades, stupid is forever,” before adding, “That’s not directed at anyone. That’s directed at somebody ... ”

Unclear exactly who she's talking about but I think we can take a pretty educated guess. pic.twitter.com/FtSbZqYMzx
But while McDowell may have thought she was engaging in sophisticated political discourse, others got a different message:
Her self awareness is astonishing.— Grōpenführer (@brvgnrsk) May 14, 2019
Pettiness isn't a good look for Dagen McDowell.— Michelle Rodriguez (@mitchie898) May 14, 2019
Would any of the women be employable at Fox when their "beauty fades"???— jeff heisler (@jrheisler) May 14, 2019
