Rollins, appearing on “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” referred to Ocasio-Cortez, 29, as "the little girl." The New York Democrat in November became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.

During his appearance, Rollins denounced Ocasio-Cortez's proposal to hike taxes for the rich and for her ambitious plan to combat climate change.

Rollins argued Democratic women would be damaged badly if they put Tlaib "out front with her mouth," and slammed Ocasio-Cortez as “the little girl who wants to do Reagan, pre-Reagan economics and 70 percent taxes.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded to Rollins on Saturday, calling him a “walking argument to tax misogyny at 100%.”

“GOP loves to insult my intelligence, yet offers *this* as their best + most seasoned opposition to my policy proposals,” the New York Democrat wrote on Twitter. “If anything, this dude is a walking argument to tax misogyny at 100%.”

“Republicans rob everyone the opportunity of real policy debate by resorting to this,” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez backed high tax rates on America’ wealthiest citizens to support the “Green New Deal,” a plan to eliminate carbon emissions in the U.S. completely within 12 years.

The progressive Latina from the Bronx also defended Tlaib earlier on Saturday from the “faux-outrage” over her profanity. 

“Republican hypocrisy at its finest: saying that Trump admitting to sexual assault on tape is just ‘locker room talk,’ but scandalizing themselves into faux-outrage when my sis says a curse word in a bar,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

“GOP lost entitlement to policing women’s behavior a long time ago. Next,” she added.
