Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, slammed Rush Limbaugh, who was recently was diagnosed with advanced stage cancer, as a “racist" on social media late Tuesday, saying he “cheapens” the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Fox News reports AOC didn’t attend President Trump's State of the Union address, claiming it would have legitimized what she saw as lawless conduct under his administration.
But she felt it necessary to offer her thoughts on Instagram as the speech carried on.
As first lady Melania Trump presented the medal and placed the award on Limbaugh – who was visibly emotional, Ocasio-Cortez said he didn’t deserve it and called him a “virulent racist.”
Ocasio-Cortez said, “Trump knows what he’s doing… he wants to assert that Rush Limbaugh is somehow on the same level as Rosa Parks, and it’s truly nauseating.”
