Hoover Institute senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to talk about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) brand of feminism. Hanson says the New York representative is “good example of a person suffering from,” what he calls, prolonged adolescence.

Carlson asked Hansen why some feminist women are “offended” and “repulsed” by the idea of child rearing. Hansen said this sentiment can be traced back to the feminist movement.

“They felt that impaired a woman’s future,” Hansen said. “Our crisis is we are not reproducing ourselves. We are suffering from prolonged adolescence. These children have adult bodies but the mind of children. They don’t want to grow up. AOC is a good example of a person suffering from that.”

Hansen pointed out that AOC has previously said that she doesn’t want to have children because of climate change. “I don’t know if it’s the student debt or the economy but they don’t want take off their training wheels and go experience life and its adventures and dangers,” Hansen said.

Cook County Judge Tracie Porter issued a lengthy ruling Wednesday which orders the state election board to remove former President Donald Trump from the Illinois primary ballot on March 19. Porter wrote Trump is disqualified from the presidency due to his actions relating to the January 6, 2021 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

Porter said she was aware her “decision could not be the ultimate outcome,” given that higher courts will have a chance to weigh in; she also put her order on hold until Friday in anticipation of an appeal.

The Chicago Sun Times reports that the State Board of Elections voted unanimously last month to reject the same bid to block Trump from Illinois’ ballot under the 14th Amendment. But Porter found the board’s decision to be “clearly erroneous.”

The 14th Amendment bars from “any office, civil or military, under the United States” anyone who previously took an oath as an “officer of the United States” to support the Constitution but then engaged in “insurrection or rebellion.”

Trump’s lawyers have told the U.S. Supreme Court the amendment doesn’t apply because the president is not an “officer of the United States” under the Constitution and because he did not engage in “anything that qualifies as ‘insurrection.’”

According to the Chicago Sun Times, the “U.S. Supreme Court is poised to rule on the controversy soon — and appeared skeptical of the arguments to kick Trump off Colorado’s ballot. The clock is ticking on the nation’s high court given that Colorado’s primary election is Tuesday.” Porter also said her order would be put on hold if the Supreme court’s ruling is ultimately “inconsistent” with hers.
