WATCH: ‘Fox and Friends’ Host Ainsley Earhardt Claims Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wants to ‘Tax 70 Percent of Your Paycheck’


Ainsley Earhardt of Fox and Friends claimed – erroneously – that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to tax 70 percent of your paycheck. That it happened during a segment about how Democrats don’t understand economics is an extra bit of irony.

“How do they have so much support?” Earhardt asked New York Post Columnist Michael Goodwin.

“I frankly think American young people today are not being educated properly in schools,” Goodwin said. “They don’t know the history of our country, they don’t know the history of other countries, they don’t understand economics.”
