This is embarrassing for absolutely everybody involved.
Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson did a segment on his show about the honorable Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's claim that the Green New Deal would have stopped the blackouts in Texas, you can watch his segment to learn about that insane assertion. In this story, Tucker featured this famous photo of the glorious congresswoman:
What I am concerned with, however, is something said by Justin Baragona, an editor of the left-wing publication the Daily Beast. In a tweet he accused Tucker Carlson's producers of photoshopping "googly eyes" on to the face of the exalted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The outrage! How dare Tucker and his producers photoshop someone to make them look ridiculous! Who do they think they are, Not the Bee?
There's only one slight problem with this outraged response... that's a real, unaltered photo.
As reported in the Daily Wire:
"So it appears that Tucker's producers added ‘googly eyes' to AOC in this image," Baragona posted, captioning the image of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez featured on the show.
The photo, however, was not doctored and appears to be a screenshot of AOC taken in May, 2018 at the latest, the contributing editor acknowledged.
Turns out the venerable Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's eyes are exactly that googly in real life.
Sure, it's an unflattering photo of the illustrious congresswoman, but it's not photoshopped.
After being embarrassed, ratio'd, and "listed" on twitter, not to mention humiliating her majesty Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez whose honor this valiant white knight was seeking to defend, Baragona acknowledged the mistake and graciously took the L.
And, of course, our good friend Kyle Mann of the real Bee came out with the perfect parody in no time at all.
