Fox Nation hosts Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, better known as “Diamond & Silk,” on Tuesday suggested that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) socialist agenda could force Americans to eat zoo animals.

During their Tuesday Fox Nation program, the two hosts took aim at Ocasio-Cortez, who is also a popular target for Fox News personalities.

“Everyone in the media seems to be gushing over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Hardaway opined. “But the A.O.C. is not an inspiration to me. She is a danger to the American dream, a hazard to our democracy and her incompetence causes uncertainty to millions of Americans and even our core values.”

“Everything she say [sic] is mindless, foolish and brainless,” she continued. “All for us to end up looking worse than Venezuela.”

“So, I wonder, do [sic] she want us eating animals from the zoo?” Richardson added.

Hardaway predicted that every American would be “destitute” if Ocasio-Cortez is allowed to carry out her plans.

“Here’s what you don’t seem to understand,” she insisted. “If everyone gets in the wagon, who’s going to pull it? If everyone is drunk on your ideas, who’s going to be the designated driver? If everyone thought the same, we wouldn’t go get an education.”

“If you don’t believe us, you go ask the citizens in Venezuela,” she concluded.
