HUGH HEWITT (HOST): [Rep.] Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez [(D-NY)] is a wonderful person. Sparkling with youthful energy, unmoved by her inexperience, confident in her lack of knowledge, and completely charismatic.

...

I'm reminded of an old game called Mad Libs. Do you remember Mad Libs? They were big in the '60s and '70s. Mad Libs. I think we can start an AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)] Mad Libs game. Just basically start cutting up, "this is our World War II." This is our World War II, you're going to have to have 60 million dead people in five years. Six years, 60 million people. You're going to have to have the Iron Curtain come down --. I would just love to talk -- oh, I would love to talk to her. Any -- just a long extended conversation where the word salad doesn't hold up. It wilts in the heat. Not hardball, just keep talking. She's just wonderful. She's -- she's -- she's my favorite person in America. 

Joe Biden has actually gone through the time machine and transgendered into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This was Joe Biden -- she's going to fill the Biden gap. The Biden gap concerned me. Some day Joe will leave the public stage and we will not have people who will say outlandish things. But now the Biden gap is filled.

Update (1/22/19 6:30 pm): Hewitt tweeted that he had made a "bad word choice on a sensitive subject."
