Comedian and podcaster Adam Carolla just flicked an internet's hornet's nest. During an episode of "Hannity," Carolla suggested the reason Democrats and the rest of us pay so much attention to the sayings and doings of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is largely due to her youthful good looks.
"Here’s a quick thought experiment: If AOC was fat and in her sixties, would anyone listen to another thing she ever said?”
That caused Sean Hannity to throw a metaphorical life preserve to Carolla, saying he wasn't sure he agreed with Carolla's assessment, and argued that yes her ideas were out there (like the Green New Deal), but that AOC has so much influence she was a bit of a de facto leader of the Democrat party, having more power than Nancy Pelosi.
Throwing caution to the wind, Carolla pushed aside the metaphorical life preserve and concluded that he agreed with Hannity, but if AOC "was a middle-aged, heavyset woman, would anyone care what she had to say."
Whether or not Adam Carolla feels the same about Hilary Clinton, that's yet to be seen or heard.
Quick to react since reacting quickly is what it does best, the mobs of Twitter had words. Not all of them are dripping politeness.
