CRYING WOLF FOR FUN AND PROFIT: I’m really not inclined to give any more oxygen to the trainwreck that is Ocasio-Cortez. In fact, it’s a rare time I agree with Whoopi Goldberg about anything, but in this case, AOC ought to take Whoopi’s advice and slow her roll.
But she or her handlers just can’t take a hint. Ever the victim, she tweeted this morning that:
“For those out of the loop, Republicans began to circulate a fake nude photo of me. The @DailyCaller reposted it (!) and refused to indicate it was fake in the title as well.”
Well, (avert your eyes!) here’s the “nude” photo in question:
OMG OMG OMG! Call the Vice Squad! Speaking of Vice, they even got a bunch of foot-fetishists to weigh in on the validity of the photo that had been rattling around the web for months before the DC published the story about the fake photo.
But morons gonna moron, and the media swallowed her latest “I’m a victim!” cry hook, line and sinker. People Magazine gullibly called it a nude in their lede, and Newsweek insists on using the phrase “fake nude” in their headline (tasty clickbait!) even though the story explains that it’s neither a nude nor a picture of AOC.
Sooner or later, she’ll have a legitimate grievance, but who in their right mind will take her seriously? Wait…don’t answer that…
