Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Mocks Fox’s Lawrence Jones for Wearing Flak Vest at Border: “Does “live from the border” mean Party City?”

Freshman Congressowman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) mocked Fox News contributor Lawrence Jones III for wearing a flak vest while reporting from the Texas-Mexico border Thursday, sneering, “Does “live from the border” mean Party City? Fox is really out here doing the most on a budget to make the border look more dangerous than it is”

Jones politely responded to Ocasio-Cortez, “Congresswoman, I’m sure the Border Patrol Laredo Sector, would be happy to give you a full briefing on the crisis here on the border. How about you join me & see for yourself. We just capture 8 illegals 3 minutes ago. Thankfully they weren’t armed like the others 2 days ago.”

Jones has been reporting from the Laredo sector for several days. He posted a photo of himself wearing a flak vest Thursday morning that drew blue check mockery on Twitter by open border advocacy reporters like NBC’s Jacob Soboroff. Jones repeatedly explained he was told by Border Patrol agents to wear the vest.


Jones appeared on Hannity Thursday night and explained the order to wear the vest.

Jones posted a photo with a Border Patrol agent thanking him.

It is a sad state of affairs when the media is joined by a Congresswoman in attacking a reporter for wearing protection while covering the cartel controlled U.S.-Mexico border in the midst of a crisis.
