Last night Tucker Carlson invited Cornell University professor, green activist and Ocasio-Cortez adviser Robert Hockett on his show to debate the Green New Deal proposed by Democrats on Thursday.
Robert Hockett immediately told Tucker Carlson the document source he was reading from was doctored and not from Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s website.
Tucker Carlson: Why would we ever pay people who are unwilling to work?
Robert Hockett: We never would, right? And AOC has never said anything like that, right? I think you’re referring to some document, I think some doctored document that somebody other than us has been circulating.
Tucker Carlson: Oh, I thought that came right from, that was a backgrounder from her office is my understanding?
Robert Hockett: No, No, she’s actually tweeted it out to laugh at it. If you look at her latest tweets it seems that apparently some Republicans put it out there.
The exchange was highlighted by Andrew Lawrence who wrote: “Watch what happens when Tucker Carlson steps out of the conservative bubble and brings on an @AOC policy adviser who debunks all the conservative media lies straight to his face (spoiler: it doesn’t go great for Tucker)”
