The guy behind the sexist Ocasio-Cortez tweet also tweeted about making ‘hot’ children masturbate
And then tried to defend it

Eddie Scarry, a reporter at the Washington Examiner, recently came under fire for a tweet where he posted a photo of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's backside as she was walking, and wrote: "Hill staffer sent me this pic of Ocasio-Cortez they took just now. I'll tell you something: that jacket and coat don't look like a girl who struggles."
His tweet, which has since been deleted, was both memed and ratioed to hell (receiving only 200 likes but over 5,000 replies), and criticized for its sexist undertones.
However, this is not the first time Scarry tweeted something weird as fuck.
On December 23, 2017, he retweeted a tweet from the Cato Institute that asked whether police should have the right to force children to masturbate in front of them so they can take photos, and he responded, "I dunno, are the children hot?"
The tweet is still on Eddie Scarry's profile and can be accessed here.
With only 126 likes and over 1,100 replies, it seems people are not pleased with Scarry's suggestion that "hot" children should be forced to masturbate in front of police. Weird.
Some people suggested this sentiment was deeply troubling and worthy of an investigation. "Seriously! I thought the AOC tweeted pic was creepy, now this!?" one Twitter user said. "This guy needs to be investigated."
"Have SWAT go in and seize his hard drive first," another said, "Put this together with the stalky-Ocasio-in-hall tweet, and I think you're pretty close to 100% child porn chances."
When we reached out for comment, Scarry called us up to say he wasn't familiar with babe dot net. He also said, "It was a joke."
