Tucker Carson took aim at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday evening, calling the freshman congresswoman "nasty" and a "moron" on his Fox News primetime show "Tucker Carlson Tonight."

"So it's official, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a moron, and nasty, and more self righteous than any televangelist who ever preached a sermon on cable access. She's not impressive, she's awful," he said.

The moment came during a discussion of Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal and a recent town hall event covering the subject with MSNBC's Chris Hayes. During the broadcast she responded to individuals comparing her to the Tea Party movement of the Republican party.

"We're actually talking about something substantive, we're not calling anyone names," she told a sympathetic audience Friday. "People say Tea Party of the left and I find this phrasing very interesting because the grounding of the Tea Party was xenophobia, the underpinnings of white supremacy."

Carlson noted the seemingly incongruence of not calling anyone names, while also attacking your opponents as xenophobes and white supremacists.

"Yeah, stop with the name calling you racist, white supremacist xenophobe," Carlson laughed. The primetime host also made it known that he wasn't a fan of his MSNBC rival Chris Hayes, who conducted the interview, attacking the anchor in personal terms.

"Chris Hayes is what every man would be if feminists ever achieved absolute power in this country: apologetic, bespectacled, and deeply, deeply concerned about global warming and the patriarchal systems that cause it," Carlson said. "Hayes frames the terms at the outset of the show. Unless you do exactly what Dr. Ocasio-Cortez says, the entire human race has only 12 years to live."

Carlson did, however, offer praise for Ocasio-Cortez by lauding her attack on income inequality and the growing "financialization" of the United States as "a fairly insightful critique of the American economy."

Reps for AOC did not immediately respond to request for comment.
