Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the far left member of the U.S. House from New York, has got to be one of the most self-serving members of Congress (and that’s saying a lot). She is all about the photo ops and does nothing to actually help people (seriously, have you seen the nonsense and expense which her Green New Deal is? It’s ridiculous).
So, maybe you haven’t heard about AOC’s latest effort at virtue signalling. Joel Abbott gives us those details:
The best Marxists are the ones who live in luxury while blaming their political enemies for everyone else’s suffering.
In AOC’s case, that extends even to her grandma in Puerto Rico. The veritable fresh face of the Democratic Party tweeted out photos of her grandma’s poor living conditions, saying it was at least partially Trump’s fault that she hasn’t received help since Hurricane Maria in 2017 […].
Of course, the ridiculous part of her criticism is that it’s her abuela (grandmother) that is supposedly suffering, but AOC has designer clothes and a Tesla. Why doesn’t AOC help to pay to repair her abuela’s home? Answer: Because this is political theater, not about actually helping anyone.
One of the responses to AOC’s silly accusations against Trump came from conservative commentator Matt Walsh who decided to troll AOC in a really wholesome, nice way (I’m not kidding). What did Walsh do? A writer going by Doc Holliday put it this way:
Walsh started things off by having the top reply to AOC’s tweet: “Shameful that you live in luxury while allowing your own grandmother to suffer in these squalid conditions”.
Then he decided to level up and actually started a GoFundMe full of savage trollery called “Save AOC’s Abuela’s Ancestral Home.”
That’s right. Walsh calls out AOC for living rich while blaming others for her grandmother living in squalid conditions, then Walsh starts a fund raiser. And guess what happened, then: it raised over $93,000 for AOC’s grandmother in only nine hours.
Sadly (but not surprisingly) an unnamed member of AOC’s family declined the funds from the Go Fund Me campaign, so AOC’s abuela won’t get any of it. And, of course, AOC is likely to continue to blame conservatives and Trump for the suffering of people that she isn’t even willing to help.
Truly, AOC so lacks self-awareness that she really can’t see how obviously hypocritical she is, or she is so sociopathic that she doesn’t care. Take your pick.
