Fox News’ Dagen McDowell Throws Cheap Shot at AOC: ‘Beauty Fades, Stupid is Forever’

New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) appeared on Fox News’ “Outnumbered” with Fox News correspondent, Dagen McDowell, and other panelists to discuss AOC’s “Green New Deal” and her 2020 presidential candidate endorsement. The conversation took a catty turn when McDowell took a cheap shot at the freshman congresswoman’s beauty and intelligence.

The panel appeared to focus on the obvious split and differences between the Democratic candidates, who have represented the status quo (i.e. Joe Biden) and the party members who walk the more progressive line in the party. AOC is a part of the latter movement in the Democratic party.

Panel members including Dagen McDowell appeared to be hyper-focused on comments AOC made which appeared to criticize Biden’s centrist approach to what she saw (and many agree with her) as an extremely urgent climate change problem that the former Vice President wasn’t fit to address. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez co-authored the congressional resolution named “Green New Deal,” which has gotten ridiculed by conservative television programs including Fox News.

McDowell seemed to make snide remarks at every turn instead of actually contributing anything of value to the hot topic. She expressed her fear that AOC’s proposed Green New Deal would put “millions” of energy industry employees out of work. She also emphasized that the resolution would raise gas prices by $5 before offering the freshman “socialist” congressman  her unsolicited beauty “advice.”

Juan Williams defended AOC explaining that the resolution was her idea.

“Juan, first up, does her endorsement matter if you’re trying to win the White House?” McDowell asked the “man in the middle,” Juan Williams, between the four female “Outnumbered” co-hosts and panelists.

“She is a socialist from New York City, she photographs well, she speaks with her hands, but beyond that, does she matter?”

Co-host Lisa Boothe inserted her two cents calling the congresswoman “a laughing stock.”

Dagen McDowell took a final opportunity to throw jabs at AOC and even tried to offer her “wisdom.”

“Beauty fades, stupid is forever,” she said before turning toward the camera. “That’s not directed at anyone. That’s directed at somebody…” she added with a sly smile.

The irony of McDowell’s insults to AOC’s beauty and intelligence is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University with a dual degree in International Relations and Economics. Dagen McDowell has a degree in Art History from Wake Forest University. It’s clear who the smarter person is in this case.
