(PresidentialHill.com)- Earlier this year, New York Magazine announced that it was publishing a collection of “essays” about the ineffectual congresswoman from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez titled “Take Up Space.” And back in February before the book’s release, Fox News host Tucker Carlson opened his show by saying he received an early copy of the book which he dutifully read.
And let’s just say, Tucker held nothing back. He featured excerpts from the book which, among other things, compares the lipstick socialist to Jesus.
His takedown of New York Magazine’s book was hilarious and spot-on. And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was not amused. After the segment aired, she went on a Twitter rant accusing Tucker of “incitement” for mocking her.

Well, New York Magazine’s slobbering book is now on sale, and last week, People Magazine offered a gushing feature about it that is the polar opposite of Tucker Carlson’s review.
Rather than point and laugh at the absurdity of New York Magazine compiling a series of “essays” in praise of AOC, People Magazine takes the book seriously.
People zeroes in on one of the essays written by Josh Gondelman that describes how Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend and her late father were “a steady source of support away from the spotlight.”
There is no “away from the spotlight” for this woman. She lives her entire existence in the spotlight. As Tucker pointed out in his February monologue, AOC posts videos to Instagram while putting on make-up or assembling furniture. Nothing this woman does is ever “away from the spotlight.”
All she has is the spotlight. And while she might be an elected member of the House of Representatives, Ocasio-Cortez has been so ineffectual, last year, she was named one of the least effective lawmakers in Congress in 2020 by the Center for Effective Lawmaking.
Someone as inconsequential as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez getting a glowing hagiography from New York Magazine is laughable.
Tucker Carlson gets that.
Alas, People Magazine does not.
