The immediate and unhinged blowback from CRTV’s hysterical mashup interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demonstrates that somebody hit a nerve.

The Verge went so far as to say “a million Facebook users watched a video that blurs the line between bad satire and ‘fake news’.” Seriously? If you can watch this video and not realize that it’s satire:

One of two things is at play: 1) You have no sense of humor, 2) the content is so close to the truth as to make it indistinguishable.

Still, the winking emoji  at the end should have provided a clue to even the clueless. Alternative explanation, as opined by Johnny Philistine:

"good satire" = lampooning Republicans
"bad satire" = exposing Democrats
"blurs the line" = our followers are too stupid to differentiate

Either way, if the hysterically funny Left believes CRTV needs to label their video as “satire” I think it only fair that the Democrats should be required to label their neo-socialist candidate as “satire” as well.

Clarifies her position on things perfectly. Are we gonna take donations to make this a paid advertisement for her?

LOL, how was than any more outrageous than her real interview in which she asserted that “unemployment was down because so many people are working two jobs” and “people are working 80 hours a week and can’t feed their children”?

I thought the mashup was spot on and well done!

Very funny. Humor and satire specifically, only work if there is a level of truth embedded in it. These answers were not that far off from her “real” interviews where she complained that people working two jobs accounted for low unemployment.

Boy, if that was true, Obama’s unemployment number would have been 0.1%!

She has a hyphenated last name. Strike three.

Fifty years of 60 minutes should be labeled as satire.

Yes. The smart and just people always fear the stupid and ignorant. Had been that way for thousands of years.
