Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to a hilarious parody video produced by CRTV that mocked her as lacking intelligence and being willing to mislead people.
The video shows CRTV’s Allie Beth Stuckey using selectively-edited comments from Ocasio-Cortez’s disastrous PBS interview in which she made anti-Semitic remarks and framing them in such a manner that Ocasio-Cortez appears to be answering questions from Stuckey.
It’s an obvious parody video:

Ocasio-Cortez’s response to the video was arguably an even bigger deal than the video itself because it shows that she is either completely clueless when it comes to recognizing satire or is comfortable lying to her followers.
“Republicans are so scared of me that they’re faking videos and presenting them as real on Facebook because they can’t deal with reality anymore,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Here’s one bonafide truth:

Ocasio-Cortez’s response to the video drew widespread mockery from nearly all corners of social media:

This statement means one of two things:
1) you actually think @conservmillen's satirical video is real
2) you know it's satire but you're feigning ignorance to rile up your base
Both of which are a bad look for you. https://t.co/vEtWUYtSX4

No one is scared of you. You’ve exposed yourself countless times. No one is scared of you.

Funniest thing I’ve seen all day. The same libs who claim they’re smart enough to run the economy, & the healthcare & education systems, are complaining because this obviously SATIRICAL clip isn’t labeled “SATIRE.” If you have a functioning brain cell you can tell this is satire. https://t.co/nMgslRMpAb
