Ocasio-Cortez Slams Fox News Hosts For Not Referring To Her As 'Dear Leader'

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a scathing Twitter thread, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took Fox News hosts to task for not referring to her using her proper title: "Dear Leader."

"Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as 'Ocasio-Cortez,' which I can only imagine is because they refuse to acknowledge me as Dear, Supreme, Glorious Leader of the People's Republic of North America," she said, kicking off a 27-tweet-long rant during office hours. She further explained how the error was racist, rebuking anyone who disagreed by using clapping emojis and a few Parks and Recreation GIFs.

"No, you can't simply refer to me as Alexandria or Ocasio-Cortez," she continued. "My name is Dear Leader. Full stop. That's my name."

A review of Fox News footage over the past several months, however, indicated that hosts only ever correctly referred to her as "bananas."
