AOC released a statement today.  She said; "The only charity I or my and family will accept is from the Government.  The 1 percenters owe my people and it is their responsibility to pay thru the nose."*

A GoFundMe launched for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) grandmother by conservative commentator Matt Walsh, which has garnered more than $100,000 has been paused due to the congresswoman's abuela refusing to accept the funds.

Grand-ma-ma doesn't object to being used as a political prop.

Maybe those photos weren't of her house?

That would be my guess.
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

James Madison Quote “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on the objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”


Oh, and what's it mean when AOC says something but there's a disclaimer that it's not "official"?     :pondering:

Maybe if the Democrats in PR weren't so corrupt your grandmother would have had her roof fixed.

Maybe if you and the rest of the Marxists in Congress hadn't been chasing Russian "collusion" and trying to falsely impeach Trump more attention could have been given to PR relief by the Trump administration.

And maybe...just maybe...you should stop using your grandmother as a political prop and use some of that $174k you make a year and find/build her a better place to live!

That was my first thought.  My second thought was if AOC feels so badly for her grandmother perhaps she should have her move in with her.  I'm sure she'd enjoy the company and the better lifestyle!

P.S. AOC; the government doesn't owe you are anyone in your family a dang thing!

   Personally, I think she hates her grandmother as much as she would hate me.

Hurricane season is here and NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is predicting another above-normal Atlantic hurricane season.  I'm sure those in Puerto Rico are already making preparations.      :whistle:

Well, the left likes giving away money taken, ultimately, at gunpoint.

Freewill donations don't have the same flavor.

EXCLUSIVE: 'It's a problem here in Puerto Rico - not with Washington.' AOC's aunt says Trump is NOT to blame for lack of aid to the struggling island after the congresswoman bashed the former president for damage to her grandmother's home

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9676791/AOCs-aunt-says-Trump-NOT-blame-lack-aid-struggling-island.html

Quote
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's angry tweet about her grandmother's damaged home in Puerto Rico and accusations about 'blocked' Hurricane Maria aid sparked a new storm – with one right-wing commentator starting a GoFundMe page that raised $104,000 to help her 'abuela'.

But the fiery congresswoman might not have the unequivocal support of one member of her family for her online outburst.
...
DailyMail.com tracked down 81-year-old Clotilde's home to a quiet community just outside the picturesque coastal city of Arecibo - located 40 miles west from capital San Juan - on the island's beautiful north coast.

And when we politely approached the two-story flat-roofed residence, we were met by a woman who told us emphatically after viewing AOC's tweets: 'I am her aunt. We don't speak for the community.'
...
Her aunt said: 'In this area people need a lot of help. Many people have needed it for the past four years and haven't had anything.'

Yet she did not pin that on Trump, adding: 'It's a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of help. It is not a problem with Washington. We had the assistance and it didn't get to the people.'

BACKFIRE: AOC’s Aunt Says Trump Is NOT To Blame For Her Grandmothers Living Conditions

by Clayton Keirns
about 13 hours ago

Last week, AOC riled up her socialist followers on Twitter when she blamed President Trump for her grandmothers living conditions in Puerto Rico.

AOC put the blame on Trump’s shoulders even though the former bartender has done nothing personally to help her “Abuela”. AOC has one of the most upscale apartments in DC *and* she drives an expensive Tesla. Instead of “redistributing” her wealth to her grandmother, AOC decided to keep it all for herself.

Now, AOC’s aunt is speaking out, and she isn’t blaming Trump at all for her grandmothers living conditions. (Talk about a slap in the face!)

“It’s a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of help. It is not a problem with Washington. We had the assistance and it didn’t get to the people,‘ AOC’s aunt told the Daily Mail.

This is in direct contradiction to what the 30-year old drama queen said last week. Turns out AOC was lying once again, like she always does!

Here’s the full scoop from the Daily Mail:

“DailyMail.com tracked down 81-year-old Clotilde’s home to a quiet community just outside the picturesque coastal city of Arecibo – located 40 miles west from capital San Juan – on the island’s beautiful north coast.

And when we politely approached the two-story flat-roofed residence, we were met by a woman who told us emphatically after viewing AOC’s tweets: ‘I am her aunt. We don’t speak for the community.’

The relative, who refused to give her name, added: ‘We are private people, we don’t talk about our family.’ Ironically for AOC, she also refused to blame former President Donald Trump for thousands of Hurricane Maria victims being unable to get money to repair shattered homes.

Her aunt said: ‘In this area people need a lot of help. Many people have needed it for the past four years and haven’t had anything.’

Yet she did not pin that on Trump, adding: ‘It’s a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of help. It is not a problem with Washington. We had the assistance and it didn’t get to the people.’
