Ingraham asked conservative lawyer Joe diGenova if he had noticed how, when Ocasio-Cortez “introduces herself, does she take on that Obama, Obama put on accents?”
The host of “The Ingraham Angle” also described the freshman lawmaker as “the It Girl, and I mean girl in a very mature way” and “the juice” of the Democratic Party.
“She does the Latina thing where she does her, you know, ’Anastasio Ocasio-Cortez,” diGenova said, using an exaggerated accent and misstating the lawmaker’s name, He then said his own name with an exaggerated Italian pronunciation.
“And I assume she’s going to love that when I do that,” he added.
