Allie Stuckey parody interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
CRTV

The Left’s faux outrage mob has come for a satirical CRTV video.

On Monday, CRTV posted a video of host Allie Stuckey conducting an “interview” with socialist Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In the video, Stuckey asks questions, and footage from Ocasio-Cortez’s viral interview on “Firing Line” with Margaret Hoover is used for her “answers.” The footage is edited hilariously, humorously making Ocasio-Cortez look like she admits to having no idea what she’s talking about — and it’s obviously satirical.

For example, Stuckey asks, “Do you have any knowledge whatsoever about how our political system works?” and a clip shows Ocasio-Cortez shaking her head “no.” That’s almost as bad as Ocasio-Cortez’s real answers in the real interview with Hoover, where she blasted the Israeli “occupation of Palestine” before admitting she’s not a foreign policy expert and made totally silly claims about U.S. unemployment.

Allie Grills Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Allie *grills* congressional hopeful and progressive it girl "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez" on her socialist agenda and knowledge of government… or lack thereof. ?Update: Yes, this is satire created from excerpts of the viral Firing Line interview with Ocasio-Cortez.

A rabid mob of blue checkmarks and their followers on Twitter jumped into action to accuse CRTV of presenting a fake interview as real news and deceiving viewers.

Stuckey is being smeared and attacked.

Ocasio-Cortez herself weighed in … humorlessly, of course.

Stuckey and CRTV are unfazed. In a statement on the video, CRTV said, “We love Allie’s creative work and look forward to liberals feigning outrage at satire in future videos.”

Stuckey has responded to all of the criticism, rightly dismissing it as nonsense.

And CRTV’s Twitter account is having way too much fun with its leftist detractors.

Some of Stuckey’s CRTV colleagues are also giving their takes on the nontroversy.

And CRTV President Gaston Mooney has thanked the Left for being beyond parody.
