WASHINGTON—Inviting the young, outspoken Democrat to settle things once and for all, Tucker Carlson concluded a taping of Tucker Carlson Tonight Monday by challenging Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to a date. “You talk a pretty big game on Twitter, but let’s see how well your pie-in-the-sky ideas hold up when you finally have the guts to join me for a romantic dinner. Date me, coward!” said Carlson in a fiery rebuke of Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left policy proposals, repeated attacks on the Trump administration, and overall refusal to meet him one-on-one for a spirited yet civil exchange of ideas while splitting a bottle of shiraz. “Hey, little Sandy, I hope you’re listening, because no one is going to take you seriously until you finally agree to date me. I’m not kidding. Any time, any place—maybe that new ramen place in Georgetown. If you want, we can even bring a camera crew and put it up on national television for everyone to see. But you’re probably too scared, aren’t you? Pathetic.” Tucker Carlson ended the broadcast by angrily listing his cell phone number in case Ocasio-Cortez decided to “grow a pair.”
