Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had something to say to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., this week.
Ocasio-Cortez made headlines when she went after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for signing a sweeping new pro-life law in Texas. The New York socialist claimed Abbott didn’t know how the female body worked.
“I do know that he is not familiar with a female or menstruating person’s body because if he [was], he would know you don’t have six weeks,” she claimed in a recent interview.
Palin went on Fox News to respond.
“Wow, AOC is really milking this, isn’t she?” Palin asked. “She is such a fake feminist … to bring up an issue like this and try to use it to make some political point that it’s not equality.”
“Oh man, don’t even get me started on this,” Palin told Fox News’ Rachel Campos-Duffy.
“It just makes my stomach sick what she has done. She should be embarrassed to have even tried to bring up an issue like that,” the former Alaska governor said about using the female anatomy to prove a political point.
“She’s so off base politically, but [with this analogy] she’s milking the whole female thing,” Palin said. “As a real feminist, I’m embarrassed for her.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded on social media with a “crying” comeback for Palin.

“Does my existence make you mad? Does the fact that yes, I am a mouthpiece for the people of New York’s 14th Congressional District, upset you?” Ocasio-Cortez said in a video posted on Twitter.
“Well, I have help for you,” the socialist leader said. “Call 1-800-CRY-NOW. That’s 1-800-CRY-NOW.”
