Tristan Desus & Mero

"Like, when does it stop?" Given the saturated market of late-night television options, Desus Nice and The Kid Mero remain two shining points, losing none of their trademark banter in the process. She was greeted with chants of "AOC!" from the audience as she arrived on camera during the late-night show's premiere on Thursday night, according to a report by the Daily Beast.

In the first episode, the pair hold it down alongside first guest Alexandria Ocsario-Cortez, as well as parody the Viggo Mortensen and Mahershela Ali film Green Book with an elaborate skit. "It's not to say you get rid of agriculture". It's not to say we're gonna force everybody to go vegan or anything insane like that.

"Isn't $10 million enough?"

"We have to take a look at everything", she added, adding that climate change "is about every choice that we make in our lives". Ocasio-Cortez hit back at both Twitter trolls and a critical billboard this week, and it appears she is letting their judgements bounce right off of her. The deal had been made between state officials and the company, which included about $3 billion in government incentives.

Signed to a four-year, $15-million contract last March, Parkey will be paid out the remaining $3.5 million guaranteed to his deal. Parkey was 23-for-30 on field-goal attempts and 42-for-45 on extra-point attempts over 16 regular-season games for the Bears .

After discussing her tax plan, the show cut to previously-taped footage of Ocasio-Cortez in her Washington D.C. office. "PS fact that it's in Times Sq tells you this isn't for/by NYers", she said, commenting on the fact that Times Square is typically a tourist destination, rather than a space frequented by NY residents.

The freshman congresswoman dug deeper into politics on Desus & Mero, but it was a amusing segment featuring fellow congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib that couldn't have been more refreshing. She told the hosts, who are fellow Bronx natives, that she "keeps it 100".

Morning commuters pass by an electronic billboard in Times Square displaying, "Thanks For Nothing, AOC!", referencing U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the pullout of Amazon's headquarters 2 in New York City, U.S., February 21, 2019. "And so we're just doing it anyway. I hope this is as much a cathartic release for readers as it has been for us creators". "Because if you're just flying under the radar, just trying to get your check, like not rock the boat-then what's the point of being in politics?"
