Democratic socialist and fan of acronyms, AOC is back from a trip to Puerto Rico with a status report about her family after a massive hurricane. Apparently, it’s all Trump’s fault.
Taking to Twitter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted several pictures of the house where her grandmother currently resides and pointed the finger at former President Trump as the reason for the poor conditions.
The house, which could easily be mistaken for a junior college frat house, represents a deeper issue for the representative. What AOC sees is the byproduct of reduced funds for Puerto Rico stemming from the Trump presidency.
“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. Hurricane María relief hasn’t arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR … People are being forced to flee ancestral homes, & developers are taking them.”
Rather than side with her errant logic regarding her abuelita‘s living conditions in Puerto Rico, followers quickly pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez’s six-figure salary as a member of Congress could certainly aid her grandmother better than the president of the United States could.
Known for her expensive public policy proposals, such as the Green New Deal, Ocasio-Cortez and her latest attack on Trump have left some people scratching their heads. AOC has a Tesla and a residence in New York City, yet she does not divert any of these funds to help her family in Puerto Rico.
AOC’s grandmother may not live in a suite from the Ritz, but that place looks like an upgrade to anyone who’s lived in student housing on American soil, outside of an Ivy League.
But don’t worry, she was rightfully scolded on Twitter for trying to redirect blame towards the former president.
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!— Lavern Spicer (@lavern_spicer) June 2, 2021
I came from nothing and am a first generation daughter in my family. I would never allow my grandfather to live in squalor and then post it on the internet to score political points.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) June 3, 2021
You rake in corrupt millions. Stop being disgusting and get your grandmother a better home. https://t.co/lN14v9V792
