Tucker Carlson of Fox News is, yet again, making statements about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that can be interpreted as sexist or outright sexual harassment. Now she’s calling him out yet, this time with the words, “You’re a creep, bro.”

Carlson’s reference to the Instagram live stream comes from an extract from “Take Up Space: The Unprecedented AOC,” a forthcoming biography of the 32-year-old politician. Friday night, Carlson read the transcript aloud on his show.

Carlson said, “The person who wrote this didn’t even perceive how creepy it was,” Carlson continued saying, “‘I’m alone today, Ocasio-Cortez says pointedly at the camera.’ Is it just us or does that sound like an invitation to a booty call? Maybe one step from ‘What are you wearing?'”

AOC responded on Twitter, questioning Carlson’s behavior behind the scenes if this is how he acts publicly.

“Remember when the right wing had a meltdown when I suggested they exhibit obsessive impulses around young women? Well now Tucker Carlson is wishing for… this on national TV,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “You’re a creep bro. If you’re this easy w/ sexual harassment on air, how are you treating your staff?”

This is far from the first time these two have clashed. He went off on her almost every night around this time last year after she shared her account of the insurgency at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. One such argument included a collection of photos with her image digitally inserted into them.
