AOC Criticized For Using Her Grandma In Her Attempt To Attack Trump

In an attempt to put the blame on former president Donald Trump, Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a fool out of herself as her political mudslinging backfired on her. 

Recently, Ocasio-Cortez exploited her grandmother’s sickly condition and posted it on social media, claiming that she still hasn’t received her relief in Puerto Rico due to delays that she attributed to Trump’s governance. 

Ocasio-Cortez posted photos of a dilapidated building that isn’t fit for human living conditions. The post elicited ridicule and criticisms from conservatives who questioned why the congresswoman allowed her grandma to suffer instead of helping her.

“This is her home. Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR,” Ocasio-Cortez said on twitter.

Being an affluent politician, AOC should’ve rescued and provided support for the old woman. That is if she really lives in that building where the ceiling tiles are peeling off with water dripping on the floor.

Matt Walsh, a right-wing writer for the Daily Wire, responded to AOC by initiating a fund-raising drive on GoFundme which reached more than $100,00.

“Shameful that you live in luxury while allowing your own grandmother to suffer in these squalid conditions,” Walsh said.

“AOC went and bought herself a Tesla while her grandmother lives in a shack with a collapsing ceiling. It never fails with these champagne socialists. They expect everyone else to make sacrifices while making none themselves,” Walsh added. 

Lavern Spicer, a Republican candidate for Florida’s 24th congressional district also slammed the hypocrisy of AOC’s posts.

“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,” Spicer said on twitter.

The donations have been halted since a representative from AOC’s family has claimed that the old woman has refused to accept the money. According to AOC, her grandma is in good condition and doing well. Perhaps the old lady is really okay and she is just being used by her granddaughter for her political ambitions.

In an interview with The Hill, a GoFundMe spokesperson explained the matter.

“When a fundraiser is created to benefit another individual and the beneficiary does not accept the funds, it is standard practice to fully refund all donors. In this case, the beneficiary has made clear to our Trust and Safety team they do not wish to accept the donations,” the spokesperson elaborated.

Ocasio-Cortez’s PR stunt to smear former President Donald Trump is a massive fail that proves that truth shall always prevail.
