LOL! – AOC Roasted For Blaming Grandmother’s “Squalid” Living Conditions On Trump

In a tweet that backfired big time, Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday tweeted about her grandmother’s “squalid living conditions in Puerto Rico” and blamed Trump for it all.

“Just over a week ago, my [grandmother] fell ill,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “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 receiving a major backlash, AOC added that her grandmother was “doing okay,” pointing out that her tweet really was about the overall living conditions in the country and not just her grandmother.

To the left, the tweet really isn’t about AOC’s grandmother. It was about pointing out what they see as systemic problems plaguing the people of PR as a result of conservative policies. However, her tweet was a perfect setup for social media users to point out the obvious which was AOC (a comparatively wealthy, young, and powerful politician) hadn’t helped her grandmother on a personal and/or financial level.

The tweets are priceless.
