We all know that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in a massive phony, but what’s really great is when her own family actually backs it up.
AOC was caught in a major lie after it was discovered that not only did she exploit her aunt’s struggle with Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, but she also flat out lied when she claimed that her family “blamed Trump” for their plight.
This lie started to unravel when Matt Walsh made a GoFundMe for AOC’s aunt, but she refused to accept the money.
Perplexed by the situation, The Daily Mail traveled to Puerto Rico to get some answers from Ocasio-Cortez’s aunt and she told the press that AOC does not speak for her or the rest of the family when it comes to their views on Trump.
In early June, Ocasio-Cortez claimed her grandmother was ill and tweeted a photo purporting to show hurricane damage in the woman’s house.
“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,” she tweeted.
That triggered conservative commentator Matt Walsh to launch a GoFundMe effort to pay for any home repairs and other assistance needed for Ocasio-Cortez’s abuela. However, the effort ended abruptly after someone from Ocasio-Cortez’s family told GoFundMe that the beneficiary would not be accepting the over $100,000 that was raised.
According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, the outlet sent a reporter and photographer to visit the woman identified as Ocasio-Cortez’s grandmother, Clotilde Rivera — to check on her house and speak with her.
When Daily Mail staffers reportedly arrived at Rivera’s house in Puerto Rico, the outlet said the journalists were greeted by a woman who refused to give her name but said, “I am her aunt. We don’t speak for the community.”
Unlike Ocasio-Cortez, the woman allegedly said, “We are private people, we don’t talk about our family.”
Not only does AOC use her family as political pawns, but she also fabricates their opinions.
She’s a real class act.
