Ocasio-Cortez swipes at Trump after Puerto Rico visit, seeing hurricane damage
By Joseph Choi - 06/02/21 03:23 PM EDT

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday took a swipe at former President Trump on Twitter after visiting her unwell grandmother in Puerto Rico and seeing the persisting effects of Hurricane Maria more than three years later.

"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,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

“This is her home. Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR. People are being forced to flee ancestral homes, & developers are taking them,” the New York congresswoman added, sharing photos of her grandmother’s home still bearing the damages caused by the 2017 hurricane.

The dingbat moves smoothly from 'Trump yanked children from their parents' arms on the border', already forgotten, to 'Trump held up FEMA hurricane funds in Puerto Rico'.

What a dull, predictable millennial product of public schools this ninny is.

In college she was described as a hoover vacuum with nipples.  Seems she hasn't sucked up any knowledge in the years since.

Biden's President now.  Let's see what he does for Puerto Rico (0 Electoral College delegates) in the next 4 years.  They'll be too busy putting catalitic converters on cattle to help the poor.

AOC has $$ for a new Tesla, but no money to help her own Abuelita.

Considering the idiocy that pours forth from her orifice, she hadn't sucked up any knowledge then either.

Wasn't knowledge she was sucking on in college, either.

The aid money and aid materiel did not reach the Puerto Ricans who needed it because...they're politicians are all Democrats.   They pocketed the money and held up the aid to blame Trump for their crimes.

Also, and this is a craaaazy idea, I know, but the federal government should not be in the business of providing relief for predictable natural disasters.   California should have a fund reserved solely for earthquake damage, Puerto Rico should have a fund reserved for blowhards like Maria and Alexandria.

And here's ANOTHER question.

If the Hoover With Nipples loves her grandmother so much, why hasn't she helped her fund the repairs on that home?  She's let her wonderful abuela (who doesn't look anything like Hillary, I bet) live in a storm damaged house for three years to make a political statement?  Because she cares so much?

'Sell your $70,000 Tesla': Critics slam 'Learjet liberal' AOC for not 'helping' her grandmother after she posted photos of her Puerto Rican home ravaged by Hurricane Maria - and blamed TRUMP!

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was slammed on Twitter for posting images of her grandma's Hurricane-torn house in Puerto Rico instead of helping her
    Several users excoriated AOC for choosing to spend money on a new Tesla instead of sending part of her $174,000 congressional salary to her grandma
    One user pointed out that she rents two apartments, including in a luxury building in Washington D.C. where one-bedroom units start at $2,500 per month
    'Honey, you drive a Tesla and have two apartments,' a congressional candidate tweeted. 'If your grandmother is living poor that's because you don't help her'
    AOC blamed Trump for the condition of her grandma's home, claiming he needed to send more aid to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

She's rapidly become a millionaire. Instead of buying a Tesla, she could have bought a Chevy and had plenty of money left over to help people in need, including her own abuela.

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!

Exactly.  I have lived in a hurricane zone my entire life, and anyone with common sense knows, you have (1) insurance (2) enough monetary reserves to take care of what insurance doesn't cover.

AOC not only could help fix her granny's house, she is a bitch for not helping her given her congressional pay windfall. Slut needs to understand that 90% of people don't want to subsidize other peoples stupid decisons.

This is gonna leave a mark!  LMFAO

After democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) revealed this week that her abuela is living in a dilapidated home — a situation she laid at the feet of former President Donald Trump — Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh launched a GoFundMe account to raise money to save her home.

“Just over a week ago, my abuela fell ill,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Wednesday. “I went to Puerto Rico to see her —  my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID. This is her home. Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR. People are being forced to flee ancestral homes, & developers are taking them.”

After a back and forth online between Walsh and Ocasio-Cortez — in which the podcast host questioned why the congresswoman, who earns more than $170,000 annually and owns a $35,000 Tesla, had not helped out her grandmother financially — Walsh took action.

Quote
“As you’ve heard, [AOC]’s abuela is living in a dilapidated home that was ravaged by Hurricane Maria,” Walsh posted on Twitter Friday. “AOC is unable to help her own grandma for whatever reason, so I have set up this Go Fund Me campaign to save her home. Please give if you can #HelpAbuela.”

This is an epic troll, but my prediction is it'll just quietly be ignored by media, gofundme will shut it down, and AOC's "abuela" won't get any money.

Prolly true. But there'll always be some who'll be swayed by a good troll. This war will be won one little battle at a time.

Yes, agreed. Matt Walsh is a good guy, and I commend him for shining the spotlight on AOC's disingenuousness.

It's possible.  But then, GoFundMe will be exposed while Walsh sends the cash through another mechanism.  I'm sure the little commie's gamma is a supporter of Shortbus Joe...the odds of that are much better than even money, so it would just look cruel if GFM were to pull that.

So....let's do the math!  Because "Math is Racist" according to (b)lack Lies (don't) Matter to me.

Hurrycane Maria struck the US territory of Puerto Ricin in September, 2017.   That was three and a half years ago.

Ditz just admitted that she hadn't been to see her grandmother in over a year.

Three and a half years less one year is two and a half years.

So she had two and a half years, KNOWING her grandmother's house was damaged, to help her grandmother fix the house or to move.

She did nothing.

For three and a half years, she did nothing to help her own grandmother.

THIS is the True Face of Socialism.

How's the 'ho gonna treat YOUR grandmother?
