- Tucker Carlson could not resist weighing in on AOC’s white gown that had the words “Tax the Rich” splashed in large print across the back while attending the Met Gala.
- “So Cortez claims she wore the dress to start a conversation about what it means to be a working-class woman of color and not at ALL to focus on a picture of her butt,” Tuck opined.
- Because Tuck is such a classy guy, he slipped in the pun ”Obviously, it’s tempting to rise to the bait.”

“Tucker Carlson could not resist opining on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the dress she wore to Monday night’s Met Gala. AOC’s full-length white dress had the words “Tax the Rich” splashed in big print across the back, which she explained was designed to spark a conversation about being a working-class woman of color working at the Met.
It’s not clear that she achieved the goal of any meaningful discourse about gender, racial, or class identity politics from the dress, but she DID get a ton of attention for herself and the “tax the rich” message, so…bully for her? But Carlson’s take was a bit more circumspect.
“If you’ve been awake at any point over the past 24 hours you have probably seen this picture of Sandy Cortez showing up in a $35,000 a head gala in New York with a dress that says ‘Tax the rich” on the outside, the back,” Carlson opened. “So Cortez claims she wore the dress to start a conversation about what it means to be a working-class woman of color and not at ALL to focus on a picture of her butt.”
Carlson may have inadvertently revealed what his focus was — staring at her butt (!) — but ascribed his motive to AOC. Pop psychologists would call that projection, but the psychoanalysis of cable news hosts is a subject for another day…”
