The Democrats just love blaming all their problems and shortcomings on the Republicans. From the Southern Border crisis to COVID-19, the Democrats have yet to present a single solution but are more than fine with placing the blame on others.
And who is more outspoken than the queen of social media and sometimes politician – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While she has yet to accomplish anything as a Representative, AOC appears more than comfortable attacking President Trump for a situation she could have fixed.
On Wednesday, AOC took to Twitter to make her usual rounds of pushing false narratives when she started to talk about her ill grandmother. She tweeted, “Just over a week ago, my abuela fell ill. I went to Puerto Rico to see her- my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID. This is her home.”
AOC follows the tweet with a series of photos that shows a weathered home with leaks and barely electricity. Apparently, this is the place AOC lets her grandmother call home, but remember it isn’t AOC’s fault. She made sure people knew that by tweeting, “Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR. People are being forced to flee ancestral homes, & developers are taking them.”
And there it is. Although AOC is more than capable of helping her grandmother, she continues to blame former President Trump for something that isn’t even in his control. Also, it should be noted that in September of 2020, the Trump administration approved $13 billion to help rebuild an electrical grid that was destroyed by the storm. And that isn’t all, Trump also granted another $3.7 billion to help fix damages done to the water plant and reservoirs. Yet again, it is Trump’s fault.
As for AOC, Twitter users were quick to set the record straight and show how entitled she really is. Daily Wire host Matt Walsh responded, “Shameful that you live in luxury while allowing your own grandmother to suffer in these squalid conditions.”
Even Florida GOP candidate Lavern Spicer responded to AOC’s claims and dropped a bombshell. “Honey, you drive a Tesla and have two apartments. If your grandmother is living poor that’s because you don’t help her out. I’m surprised that a socialist wouldn’t redistribute that wealth to their grandma. Sad!”
First reported by the Washington Free Beacon, AOC is the proud owner of a Tesla Model 3 Long Range. For those wondering, that model retails between $46,000 and $59,000. And what about that cushy DC apartment she rents? It ranges anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 a month. So, it’s safe to say that AOC has more than enough resources to help her grandmother.
