Full stop. That's my name.

Ocasio-Cortez's tweet follows a Thursday "Fox and Friends" segment in which co-host Brian Kilmeade mused about "forces" behind the 29-year-old congresswoman who might be "writing her questions" for congressional hearings for her.

The bartender turned politician is a leader of the Democratic Party's progressive wing and has managed to gain endorsements for her Green New Deal bill from Democratic 2020 hopefuls.

A Fox News spokesman declined to provide comment on Ocasio-Cortez's suggestion that the network has fixated on her to an unusual degree.

Grabien News reviewed transcripts from every episode of "The Ingraham Angle" and "Hannity" in the month of March.

The former Arkansas governor was asked by "Fox and Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade if Ocasio-Cortez's rise and her level of preparedness was the result of "forces" at work. "Randomly accusing people of prejudice is indecent, [especially] when it will inevitably be used for more boycott fodder", Elliott wrote on Twitter on March 20. It's a constant topic. Wonder Woman of the left, Wicked Witch of the right, Ocasio-Cortez has become the second most talked-about politician in America, after the President of the United States. She referred the NY representative as the "It Girl", meaning it in a "mature way", and "juice" of the Democratic party. Her victory drew the attention of the media and Ocasio-Cortez managed to stay in the spotlight by pitching radical socialist ideas, including the so-called Green New Deal and taxing the wealthy at a 70 percent rate.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - the object of death threats she blames on disparaging coverage by "right-wing media" - said Thursday she feels safest when she's at home in the Bronx.

But the popularity came with a price.

A recent Gallup Poll, meanwhile, found that the public's view of Ocasio-Cortez continues to grow more negative.

Dimon, during an interview with CNN on Tuesday, said there was an "intelligent way" to focus on addressing climate change that doesn't hurt the economy, when responding to White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow's suggestion that the Green New Deal would "literally destroy the economy".
