Following NBC’s hostile coverage of President Trump’s State of the Union address and fawning over a “strong” Democratic response from Stacey Abrams Tuesday night, the network decided to get reaction from the far left as it invited on socialist New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for a softball chat about her radical views.

The leftist lawmaker was treated to a gushing introduction from NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt: “Alexandria Oasio-Cortez was elected to the House from New York last November, just weeks after her 29th birthday. She’s a progressive Democrat, a favorite target of conservatives, and already so well known she can go by just her initials, AOC.”

Moments later, Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie noted how the President called out socialism during the speech:
