BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): So is it about time we saw an ad already on [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and maybe Republicans have something to go on? Is this a template for the president?

MIKE HUCKABEE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): You know, it's amazing how big a deal she has become, to be a 29-year-old with no major accomplishments to her credit other than making some really bizarre policy pronouncements about the New Green Deal (sic) and getting rid of the Amazon jobs in New York. She's making quite a name for herself. And I hope that she continues to be the face of the Democratic Party. It's the best thing that Donald Trump and the Republicans have going for them in 2020. 

KILMEADE: Somebody's writing her questions. I saw the questions at Michael Cohen and saw the questions at Wilbur Ross. And there is some forces behind her. I think there's a story there. 

HUCKABEE: Well, there very well could be. I know there has been some allegations she that was almost like the Manchurian Candidate, recruited, prepared. You know, I don't know. But the point is that she got her voters out.
