Sara Carter appeared on Andrew Wilkow’s “The Wilkow Majority” radio show on Thursday, where she slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s (D-N.Y.) $65 campaign sweatshirts that she had advertised Wednesday on Twitter, with phrases such as “Tax The Rich” and “The Green New Deal” printed on them.
“It’s so insane,” Carter, a Fox News contributor, told Wilkow.
Carter then went on to talk about some $25 onesies also being sold that say “Fight For My Future”.
“If you go to her store and you actually look at all the different gear and how much it costs, they actually have a $25 onesie that’s for the Green New Deal that actually says ‘Fight For My Future,'” she said.
“It is a very expensive shirt, considering that AOC is supposed to be therefore the every person, right?” she added.
Although Carter had a lot of problems with the congresswoman’s merchandise, she acknowledged that it’s a positive thing if these products are in fact all manufactured within the United States, like Ocasio-Cortez stated they are in her Wednesday Twitter thread promoting her merchandise.
“And you’re right,” she told Wilkow, “if it’s all made in America, good.”
At another point, Wilkow and Carter’s attention turned to the stereotype of a certain type of individual who generally describes themself as a socialist selling products advocating for such policies or criticizing capitalism
“You’re helping them make money as a capitalist,” Carter said. “This is the hypocrisy I mean, right? We laugh about it, I can’t even believe that [Ocasio-Cortez] would have the gall to do this.”

Rep. Patrick McHenry Announces Retirement, Adding to Congressional Exodus
Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., has declared that he will not seek re-election, becoming the latest in a growing list of lawmakers departing from Congress. McHenry, a close ally of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, stated that he believes “there is a season for everything,” signaling the end of his tenure in the House. Having served since 2005, McHenry is the 37th member of Congress to announce they won’t seek re-election in 2024.
In a statement, McHenry reflected on the significance of the House of Representatives in the American political landscape, calling it the “center of our American republic.” He acknowledged the concerns about the future of the institution due to multiple departures but expressed confidence that new leaders would emerge and guide the House through its next phase.
The departure of McHenry and others comes against the backdrop of political shifts and challenges within the Republican Party. The GOP has faced setbacks in recent elections, including fallout from the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Internal strife and disagreements, exemplified by the rebellion against McCarthy, have characterized the party’s dynamics. The GOP’s approval rating stands at 30%, with a disapproval rating of 66%, reflecting the challenges and divisions within the party.
As McHenry steps aside, questions loom over the fate of open seats in the upcoming election. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report identifies five open House seats as potential Democrat pickup opportunities, while none are listed for the GOP. The departures raise concerns about the party’s unity and ability to navigate the evolving political landscape.
With a total of 20 departing Democratic legislators and 10 Republicans, the changing composition of Congress adds complexity to the political dynamics leading up to the 2024 elections. As McHenry emphasizes a hopeful view of the House’s future, the evolving political landscape will determine the impact of these departures on the balance of power in Congress.
