By now, pretty much everyone knows that Fox News host Tucker Carlson is not exactly friends with Democratic New York Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. On Thursday, he blasted her once again, declaring that he doesn't care "what she thinks" in a minute-long rant after she demanded that migrant families who were separated under former President Donald Trump’s administration be paid reparations.

During his appearance on 'Outnumbered', where he was promoting his upcoming Fox Nation series, Carlson went after Ocasio-Cortez, asking, "Who cares what she thinks?" He also called her "a racist" over her stance on illegal immigration.

A video clip of Ocasio-Cortez speaking during her Wednesday virtual town hall, calling for reparations to be paid to the migrants who were separated under Trump’s policies, was played. After which Carlson was asked for his thoughts on the matter. In the clip, AOC can be seen saying that President Joe Biden's policies are "not the same as what happened during the Trump administration, where they took babies out of the arms of their mothers" as she called for reparations for migrants. 

"It's just interesting to come to a place where a low IQ race-baiter like that has an important voice in national policy," he said. "Who cares what she thinks?" 

He might have said that he doesn't, but that doesn't explain why he went on the rant, even accusing her of racism. "She’s totally reckless and she’s a racist, like openly. I think the key to this though is to think clearly about what’s best for the United States. Obviously, the border policy now is a disaster. To be fair, it’s been a disaster for a long time," he said, adding, "She wants to change the population, she wants her party to be more powerful. I get it. But we’re allowing her and people like her to do that because we are afraid of being called names."

He went on to say that the current border policy "doesn’t serve the interest of most Americans," and it won’t because people like Ocasio-Cortez always use the word "racism" and "cow the rest of the country into submission".

"One last thing, how does it help Ecuador, or El Salvador, or Guatemala, or any of the countries from which these people are coming, to have your most ambitious people leave? It’s a disaster for them too, and for us. It doesn’t help any good person to have this kind of uncontrolled migration into our country," he went on to say. 

Finally, Carlson concluded his rant with an "I don’t care whatever that woman’s name is thinks, and no one should care what she thinks."

AOC had recently taken to her Instagram Live, when someone asked her why she was "not addressing the border crisis and the kids in cages like you used to". She then said, "It’s not a border crisis. It’s an Imperialism crisis, it’s a climate crisis, it’s a trade crisis. And also it’s a carceral crisis."

Calling out anyone who used the term surge, AOC said, "Anyone who’s using the term ‘surge’ around you, consciously, is trying to invoke a militaristic frame. And that’s a problem, because this is not a surge. These are children and they are not insurgents and we are not being invaded. Which, by the way, is a white supremacist philosophy. The idea that if another is coming in the population that this is an invasion of who we are."
