The left is flush with outrage over a fake interview.

The left is flush with outrage over a fake interview.

Allie Beth Stuckey did a fake “interview” with progressive darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. (Seen below)

It is precisely the same technique that Seth Meyers uses in substituting fake questions to Sarah Sanders’ answers, or that Stephen Colbert uses in placing himself and his fake questions into Trump interviews. Frankly, it’s never very funny because none of the three fake interviewers has the chutzpah to make the interviews really edgy. Meyers and Colbert are better at it because they are professional humorists, but the fact that Stuckey isn’t really very funny is no reason for liberal Twitter to go nuts. So the tables have been turned. Big deal. Stuckey’s vid is just a less funny version of the same old time-worn schtick.

  1. Hey if you go into politics, someone is going to make fun of you. I can’t picture this surprising anyone.

    It made me think of that “Mr. Jaws” novelty song from 1975. Y’know, you can just punch that right up on yotube. What a time to be alive…

  2. I think the only thing that annoys me is that it’s woefully unfunny. And her fake questions don’t really lead anywhere either. They’re just random questions with random answers slotted in. And then the interviewer looks smug afterwards, as if she’s proven some damning point. That’s the sad thing with right-wingers – no sense of humour.

    1. True dat. She did a poor job. But there’s nothing in the format that we don’t see every night from Colbert or Meyers or Sam Bee or somebody else.
