AOC blasted for ‘misleading’ tweet taking ‘victory lap’ over new Amazon jobs in New York City

Westlake Legal Group ocasio-cortez-1-AP AOC blasted for 'misleading' tweet taking 'victory lap' over new Amazon jobs in New York City Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/new-york-city fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/tech/companies/amazon fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article ac2ab693-2eb9-5199-b237-60b4d0db0caf

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was slammed on Friday night over what critics say is a “misleading” tweet touting a new report about Amazon bringing jobs to New York City.

Last summer, Ocasio-Cortez waged war against Amazon after the retail giant struck a deal with the state of New York to open a second headquarters in New York City, which would have brought 25,000 jobs to the city, in exchange for $3 billion in state and local subsidies. Ultimately, Amazon backed out of the deal.

However, it was reported Friday that Amazon was leasing a 335,000-square-foot office space in Manhattan that is set to bring more than 1,500 jobs into the city.

Ocasio-Cortez celebrated the news on Twitter.

“Won’t you look at that: Amazon is coming to NYC anyway – *without* requiring the public to finance shady deals, helipad handouts for Jeff Bezos, & corporate giveaways,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Maybe the Trump admin should focus more on cutting public assistance to billionaires instead of poor families.”

She also posted a picture of herself sitting on the couch with the caption: “Me waiting on the haters to apologize after we were proven right on Amazon and saved the public billions.”

AOC CALLED OUT AFTER CLAIMING TRUMP FOOD-STAMP REVISIONS MIGHT HAVE LEFT HER FAMILY ‘STARVED”

Many took exception to the “victory lap” the freshman congresswoman made and pointed to the math of the jobs that were still lost from her battle with Amazon.

“Another day, another viral misleading tweet from AOC. Amazon is leasing office space in Manhattan for 1,500 employees, which is 6% of the 25,000 jobs its HQ2 in Queens (her district) was supposed to add,” The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson said.

“AOC could have had 25,000 jobs in her district from Amazon, but now, Amazon is only offering 1,500 jobs using rental space OUTSIDE her district. She’s taking a victory lap for a 94% loss in jobs in NYC and 25,000 job loss in her district. Socialist logic is incredible,” political strategist Caleb Hull wrote.

This isn’t the first controversy Ocasio-Cortez stirred up on Twitter this week.

The Democratic “Squad” member received pushback Thursday after claiming her family “might’ve just starved” had the Trump administration‘s tightened requirements for food stamp recipients been in place when her father died in 2008.

Critics claimed the freshman congresswoman misrepresented the new rule, pointing out that it applies only to childless, able-bodied adults under 50.

PELOSI SUGGESTS AMID TRUMP IMPEACHMENT, ‘THE ARTS’ WILL HELP HEAL AMERICA

The U.S. Agriculture Department (USDA) finalized the first of three proposed rules targeting the Supplemental Nutrition Program, known as SNAP. The plan announced Wednesday will limit states from exempting work-eligible adults from having to maintain steady employment in order to receive benefits.

Ocasio-Cortez, 30, responded to the announcement on Twitter on Thursday.

“My family relied on food stamps (EBT) when my dad died at 48. I was a student. If this happened then, we might’ve just starved. Now, many people will,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “It’s shameful how the GOP works overtime to create freebies for the rich while dissolving lifelines of those who need it most.”

The New York Democrat was 19 and about to begin her sophomore year at Boston University when her father, Sergio Ocasio, died of lung cancer. It is likely her mother still would have claimed her as a dependent at that time.

Several critics challenged the congresswoman, including The Heritage Foundation, a conservative Washington-based think tank, writing: “The rule applies to able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 who do not have dependents. The rule wouldn’t apply to parents with minor children, the elderly, or disabled people.”

Media piles on Nikki Haley after misinterpreted Confederate flag remarks go viral

Several members of the media slammed former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley over remarks she made during a recent interview about the Confederate flag.

In a clip that went viral, Haley recalled the dark chapter as the South Carolina governor in the aftermath of the 2015 Charleston church shooting and how the tragedy sparked numerous debates, including the Confederate flag, which she had removed from the state’s capitol building.

“South Carolina fell to our knees when this happened. This is one of the oldest African-American churches. These twelve people were amazing people. They loved their church. They loved their family. They loved their community,” Haley said. “And here is this guy who comes out with his manifesto holding the Confederate flag and just hijacked everything that people thought of.”

“We don’t have hateful people in South Carolina. There’s always the small minority that’s always going to be there. But people saw it as service and sacrifice and heritage. But once he did that, there was no way to overcome it,” she went on.

Haley also described how “the national media” attempted to “define what happened” by making the tragedy about things like racism, gun control and the death penalty, and how she had to push them away to allow her state to grieve.

“We had a really tough few weeks of debate, but we didn’t have riots. We had vigils,” Haley said. “We didn’t have protests. We had hugs. And the people of South Carolina stepped up and showed the world what it looks like to show grace and strength in the eyes of tragedy.”

WASHINGTON POST MOCKED FOR SUGGESTING MELANIA TRUMP COULD BE ‘SENDING CODING MESSAGES’

However, the tweet accompanying her remarks said, “Nikki Haley says the Confederate flag was about ‘service, and sacrifice, and heritage’ until Dylan Roof ‘hijacked’ it,” omitting how she said “people” in South Carolina felt that way about the Confederate flag, not herself.

Regardless, the tweet sparked heavy backlash to Haley from media critics.

“Remember that brief period of time when Nikki Haley was considered the adult in the Trump Administration? Welp, she just failed 8th grade social studies with this take,” CNN host W. Kamau Bell said.

“Nikki Haley going full MAGA and racist leading up to 2024,” New York Times contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali said. “Told ya. This is the only way for a candidate to be appreciated by the Republican Party now. No country for moderates, adults or Never Trumpers. Also the Confederate flag was for treasonous criminals who enslaved people.”

“Hey, Nikki Haley… Confederate flag is no better than a Swastika,” Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart wrote.

Even “The View” conservative co-host Meghan McCain initially attacked Haley.

“This is a deeply insensitive and ignorant thing to say Nikki. There is no room for any defense of the Confederate flag,” McCain wrote in the now-deleted tweet.

Others rushed to Haley’s defense as the clip continued to spread on social media, calling the tweet “misleading” and pointing out how she wasn’t speaking on behalf of herself.

Haley later responded to the controversy.

“2015 was a painful time for our state. The pain was and is still real. Below was my call for the removal of the Confederate flag & I stand by it. I continue to be proud of the people of SC and how we turned the hate of a killer into the love for each other,” Haley said.

Among the outlets that ran with the story, Axios deleted a tweet with the misinterpreted quote and updated its report.

“We’ve deleted a tweet saying that Nikki Haley said the Confederate flag represents ‘service, sacrifice and heritage’. Our story has been updated to reflect that Haley said: ‘People saw [the flag] as service, and sacrifice and heritage,'” Axios said.

The Hill was also slammed for a similar tweet, which critics called “wrong” and “a lie.”

Trudeau, Johnson, Macron appear to be mocking Trump in surfaced video from NATO summit

The world’s top leaders at the NATO summit in London appear to be laughing at the expense of President Trump in a video that surfaced on Tuesday night.

In a video shared by the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC), Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron are seen with others, including Princess Anne, having a conversation at a reception at the Buckingham Palace about a press conference earlier in the day.

Trump had made an impromptu conference and weighed in on the ongoing impeachment inquiry as well as the fiery exchange he had with Macron over France not taking back any ISIS fighters.

“Is that why you were late?” Boris smirked to Macron.

“He was late because he takes a 40 minute press conference off the top- ‘Oh, ya, ya ya,'” Trudeau said, later adding, “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”

The video went viral on social media, many assuming the world leaders were talking about Trump.

“Can’t get over this video, both for the fact that POTUS hates the thought of anyone laughing at him and for the fact that he long used “other countries are laughing at us” as an attack against his predecessors,” New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reacted.

“This happens at every NATO summit with Trump. Every G7. Every G20. The US President is mocked by US allies behind his back,” political commentator Ian Bremmer wrote.

Earlier, Macron and Trump clashed over ISIS fighters.

“I have not spoken to the president about that — would you like some nice ISIS fighters?” he asked Macron, when asked about ISIS fighters from Europe captured in Syria. “I can give them to you, you can take every one you want.”

After Macron’s answer, in which he urged Trump to “be serious” and called for a broader push against ISIS overall, Trump took another swipe.

“This is why he’s a great politician, because that’s one of the greatest non-answers I’ve ever heard,” Trump joked.

Peloton sparks sexism outcry, mockery for holiday ad showing husband gifting wife an exercise bike

Westlake Legal Group Peloton-girl Peloton sparks sexism outcry, mockery for holiday ad showing husband gifting wife an exercise bike Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/media fox-news/health fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 699e96af-fafa-52eb-a137-ae816d88f213

Peloton dominated social media on Monday after an ad promoting its exercise bike triggered an avalanche of criticism.

The ad, which initially debuted online in November, features a husband surprising his wife on Christmas morning with an exercise bike, showing her gasping with shock after lifting her hand from her eyes.

“A Peloton?!?” the wife exclaimed in disbelief.

The commercial then shows the wife continuously documenting her use of the exercise bike throughout the year via video diaries, which is followed by her showing her husband a compilation video displaying the progress she made.

“A year ago, I didn’t realize how much this would change me,” the wife said to her husband about her Peloton. “Thank you.”

‘TIME’S UP’ GROUP DEMANDS NBC TO ‘STOP PROTECTING POWERFUL MEN’ FOLLOWING GABRIELLE UNION REPORT

Vice declared that the woman in the ad is “absolutely not OK” and that the commercial is a “30-second tale of one [her] desperate journey into wellness hell.”

“Her grim motivation that pushes her to drag herself out of bed combined with exclaiming at the camera how blatantly, inexplicably nervous the Peloton makes her paint a bleak portrait of a woman in the thrall of a machine designed to erode her spirit as it sculpts her quads,” Vice’s Katie Way wrote. “Titled “The Gift That Gives Back,” the 30-second commercial is a mere glimpse into the barrage of horror its protagonist, a young wife and mother, slogs through daily.”

Others took to Twitter and mocked the ad.

“Sorry to shake things up but I’m excited to announce I’m throwing my hat in the ring and joining the presidential race and running on the single issue platform to jail everyone involved in the pitching, scripting, acting, shooting, and approval of the Peloton ad,”  writer Bess Kalb reacted.

Peloton did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News.

George Conway took a rare direct shot at his wife, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, on Twitter Monday while knocking President Trump over his request for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

On Monday, Kellyanne Conway had some fun at the expense of Biden after a 2017 clip showed him describing how children would rub his leg hair back when he was a lifeguard at a Delaware pool in his younger days.

“I got hairy legs that turned … blonde in the sun. And the kids used to come up and reach into the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and watch the hair come back up again,” Biden recalled. He then said he “learned about kids jumping on my lap, and I loved kids jumping on my lap.”

KELLYANNE CONWAY’S HUSBAND SAYS SHE’S AN ‘ENABLER’ TO ‘CRIMINAL’ TRUMP

Conway hit the 2020 Democratic frontrunner, insisting “Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe.”

“We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?” the White House aide asked.

Minutes later, her husband responded: “Your boss apparently thought so.”

George Conway has been an outspoken critic of Trump on Twitter and in recent weeks has taken not-so-veiled shots at his pro-Trump spouse over her loyalty to the president, agreeing with another Twitter user that she is “both” an “enabler” as well as a  “cheerleader” for Trump.

Twitter rewrites history with hilarious pop culture meme ‘gonna tell my kids’

Twitter users are hilariously rewriting the history books with the Internet’s latest trending topic, “Gonna tell my kids.”

The funny meme works sort of like a white lie parents tell their kids — but it involves taking a historic or popular figure and replacing the person with a random image of a pop star or cultural event.

Part of the magic is to pick the perfect doppelganger or image that best captures the desired feeling.

MSNBC ‘JEFFREY EPSTEIN DIDN’T KILL HIMSELF’ MEME POPS UP ON MSNBC

One viral tweet, for example, showed a frog sitting on top of a toy horse with a cowboy hat Photoshopped on its head. The caption read: “im gonna tell my kids this was lil nas x.”

Another photo of singer Lana Del Rey and rapper A$AP Rocky was paired with the tweet “gonna tell my kids this was jfk and Jacqueline Kennedy.”

One of the funnier posts was a video of Cardi B. “Gonna tell my kids this was Audrey Hepburn,” one Twitter user posted.

“I’m gonna tell my kids this is the royal family,” one person tweeted with an image of the Lindsay Lohan-led cast of “The Parent Trap.”

Of course, there were some pretty great political tweets. On one, next to an image of Betty White, a Twitter user wrote, “Gonna tell my kids this was Joe Biden.”

In another post of an image of Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie in a top hat, one person said vowed to tell their future kids it was actually Abraham Lincoln.

For the win, another meme genius reimagined the infamous cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore.”

NBC News employees blast colleague’s own report for saying first public impeachment hearing lacked ‘pizzazz’

Westlake Legal Group Taylor-Kent-NBC NBC News employees blast colleague's own report for saying first public impeachment hearing lacked 'pizzazz' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 69394c45-416d-5804-a2a2-eee6634b2b03

NBC News employees piled on one of their own colleagues over his report about how the first public impeachment hearing lacked “pizzazz.”

U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent were the first witnesses to offer their testimony in the open and were grilled for several hours over their knowledge of President Trump‘s conduct with Ukraine.

NBC News political reporter Jonathan Allen noted in an analysis, however, that the hearing was “substantive, but it wasn’t dramatic.”

“The first two witnesses called Wednesday testified to Trump’s scheme, but lacked the pizazz necessary to capture public attention,” Allen wrote. “At a time when Democrats are simultaneously eager to influence public opinion in favor of ousting the president and quietly apprehensive that their hearings could stall or backfire, the first round felt more like the dress rehearsal for a serious one-act play than the opening night of a hit Broadway musical.”

ABC NEWS POLITICAL ANALYST HITS ELISE STEFANIK IN CONTROVERSIAL TWEET SPARKING ‘SEXISM’ BACKLASH

When the report was shared on social media, the “pizzazz” headline triggered critics, including by some of Allen’s co-workers.

“This is an embarrassing and unserious headline. Do better,” MSNBC contributor Jennifer Rubin reacted.

“Not sure that ‘pizzazz’ was the point,” MSNBC contributor Charlie Sykes also swiped.

MSNBC analyst Ben Rhodes hit Allen after he had defended his reporting and stressed how the “presentation aspect” of the impeachment hearings was important to Democrats trying to sway public opinion on impeachment.

“Maybe it’s more important for the American people to learn the facts than to have an analysis of pizazz,” Rhodes told Allen. “That’s the purpose of public hearings and we’d be a lot better off if it was the basis for our politics.”

CNN ANALYST: IT’S A ‘PROBLEM’ FOR DEMS THAT IMPEACHMENT WITNESSES NEVER MET TRUMP

Frequent MSNBC guests also blasted Allen’s report.

“You know who was the most boring witness I ever saw? Alexander Butterfield. And he brought down the Nixon presidency,” Ronald Klain tweeted. “I’m sorry that saving our democracy doesn’t have enough “pizzazz” for you….”

Above the Law executive editor Elie Mystal had a similar response, invoking the Nuremberg Trials that prosecuted high-ranking Nazi officials following World War II.

“Analysis: Nuremberg Trials lay out disturbing details, but lack pizzazz necessary to capture public attention. Unlike the Blitz, which, like, totally persuaded people to get out of bed and pay attention to the nightly news. -@jonallendc, Nov 20th, 1945, probably,” Mystal wrote.

Allen shot back, “Here’s a sick thing to write to a Jew.”

NBC News did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Reuters faced similar backlash for its own report that declared, “Consequential, but dull: Trump impeachment hearings begin without a bang.”

Bette Midler’s comments attacking Kentucky Senator Rand Paul for his stance on the Kurds are “highly inappropriate” and “completely unnecessary,” Hollywood actress and former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star Kristy Swanson said Saturday.

“I DO NOT promote violence but…Rand Paul says the Kurds are being ‘ingrates’ for taking their frustrations out on U.S. Troops. Which is a good reminder for us all to be more grateful for the neighbor who beat the s— out of Rand Paul,” she wrote Wednesday.

The tweet has since been deleted.

BETTE MIDLER LOBS PROFANE ATTACK AT LEADING CONSERVATIVE WHO HONORED DAVID KOCH

Appearing on “Coast to Coast” with anchor David Asman, Swanson said that Midler knew she was wrong.

“There’s no need for it. I mean, obviously she deleted it, you know, knowing that it was completely wrong and inciting violence and, you know, sort of cheerleading for that,” she said.

“I think that, you know, it’s way out of line. Completely out of line,” Swanson added.

Paul was assaulted by neighbor Rene Boucher in November 2017 while he was mowing his lawn. Paul was tackled from behind and suffered six broken ribs, including three displaced fractures. His recovery was complicated by fluid and blood around the lungs and pneumonia. He ultimately had part of his lung removed in August 2019.

“Repugnant words from @BetteMidler cheering the violent assault on my husband – because he thinks U.S. soldiers shouldn’t police Turkish border,” Paul’s wife Kelley wrote on her Twitter.

“No matter how much I disliked someone’s politics, I would never celebrate their serious injury. A low bar, but @BetteMidler is below it,” she said.

Despite saying she doesn’t promote violence, this isn’t the first time that Midler has caused a stir over her rhetoric on Twitter. Over the summer she courted controversy again with a since-deleted tweet that insinuated someone should stab President Donald Trump.

“Not all of Hollywood has the same mindset that Bette Midler does, but she tends to just got so extreme with things and this was a disrespect to the troops, our military, and to Rand Paul,” Swanson told Asman.

“It happens daily with her, to be honest. I don’t know why she just keeps doing it,” she mused.

“I have found — you know — just being in the hair and makeup room or whatever, people come in and just talk trash about conservatives just openly and blatantly. And, I think that there needs to be you know just a rule… let’s just not talk politics at work. I think everybody would be fine,” Swanson concluded.

She added, “He always surprises me and I re-fall in love with Him every single time. In my worst moments, like awful, most painful moments – I never stopped falling to my knees wanting and needing only His love.”

The 27-year-old pop star has previously spoken about her diagnosis with lupus and the emotional road she traveled to take control of her mental health.
