You do it. Cause you're not", said Ocasio-Cortez, adding, "Until you do it, I'm the boss.

"All we're seeing now is the true ugliness and darkness of her ideology being revealed", Hilton said, calling the statement "disturbingly authoritarian".

"Well, you didn't vote for me", the senator responded.

"Like I just introduced Green New Deal two weeks ago and it's creating all this conversation. Why?"

Fact check: As Newsweek points out, "Ocasio-Cortez didn't say that young people do not want to procreate, nor did she say that future generations should not have children at all". After the teen said she was 16 and couldn't yet vote, Feinstein deadpanned, "Well, you didn't vote for me". "Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein is basically telling a bunch of kids to shut the h*** up because she won an election they couldn't vote in and that means she knows everything". While some wrote that a shortened version of the video made Feinstein's conduct look worse than she had actually behaved, others said that the full version of the video was just as damning.

Last month she quoted the vigilante Rorschach from the comic book series "Watchmen" while responding to a Politico story that claimed Democratic leaders were trying to "rein in" Ocasio-Cortez.

In the video posted by the Sunrise Movement, the kids hold up a poster-sized letter to present to Feinstein, asking her to support the Green New Deal.

"If this Green Raw Deal is enacted, you can kiss the American dream goodbye. And we're not going to be around in 10 years, '" he continued.

"I want the children to know they were heard loud and clear".

Senate Republicans already have been seeking to put Democrats in a tough position on the proposal, which was introduced by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY, a self-described Democratic socialist, by scheduling a vote on it as soon as next week.

Kilmeade, who didn't even know Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's age (she is 29), accused Democrats of "kowtowing" to the Congresswoman from the Bronx and Queens, while deciding the Green New Deal, which AOC is sponsoring in the House, is "not plausible". It's a non-binding bill, meaning its passage won't change existing law but represents symbolic goals.

Backers of the plan say cost of inaction would be more expensive.

Feinstein countered that she understands the consequences of climate change.

Fox News personalities, especially those on "Fox & Friends", have been obsessed with bashing Ocasio-Cortez since her election previous year.
