Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was ridiculed for being triggered by Fox News host Laura Ingraham over the coronavirus pandemic.

The New York Democrat got into a war of words with Ingraham after the Fox News host mocked her take on how racial and economic inequalities would mean COVID-19 effects would more negatively impact people of color.

“The Doctor of Mixology will save us!” Ingraham tweeted Friday, reacting to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet declaring that “COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations.”

The New York lawmaker fired back at Ingraham mocking her job as a bartender before she was elected to Congress.

“Didn’t you just put a doctor on your show who faked their employment at Lenox Hill hospital and touted a COVID “treatment” that you tweeted & Twitter had to remove because a man may have died trying self-administer it?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

“I’m sorry, why are you on TV again?” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez was referring to a doctor who allegedly worked for a New York hospital and who had appeared recently on Ingraham’s Fox News show. She also added that the doctor “touted a COVID treatment'” and referred to a man allegedly dying after trying to “self-administer” a drug for treating coronavirus.

Ingraham fired back, noting that the doctor she interviewed had “admitting privileges” at Lenox Hill, and had not lied about his employment there. She called out the “typical liberal” for “maligning” the doctor.

The Fox News host did not, however, address Ocasio-Cortez’s dig about Twitter removing her post because it fell under their “misleading information policy” with its “Heightened-risk health claims.”

Ocasio-Cortez continued to double down on her claims against Ingraham, linking to a Daily Beast story about the Twitter decision.

She added another tweet on the story of the man who died after using a form of chloroquine.

But the Arizona man who died had ingested a fish tank cleaner containing chloroquine phosphate, an ingredient different from the one medically being discussed to combat the virus. President Trump was quickly blamed by the left but there was much more to the story, as it turned out.

Twitter users slammed Ocasio-Cortez for failing to prove anything in her attacks on Ingraham.
