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.”

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
