Petulant brat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), known for her relentless criticism of President Trump and her mad cocktail skills, has just received a much deserved verbal smackdown. This one coming from an unexpected source, her aunt.
Last week, the Tesla driving, upscale apartment dwelling NY rep, took to Twitter to do what she does best, incite her followers. This time with a ridiculous accusatory rant, blaming President Trump for her grandmother’s destitute living conditions in Puerto Rico.
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.

AOC’s aunt is speaking out, and unlike her niece, did not blame Donald Trump for grandma’s poor living conditions. Her remark to the Daily Mail is a stinging slap to the face of Ms. Ocasio-Cortez:
“It’s a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of help. It is not a problem with Washington.
We had the assistance and it didn’t get to the people“.
Conservative Matt Walsh started a Go Fund Me campaign to help out Alexandria’s grandma since her well-to-do granddaughter apparently wasn’t compelled to reach into her own pocket.
He kicked off the fundraiser, with a shot across AOC’s bow:
“I will kick things off by donating $499, which happens to be the cost of a monthly lease payment for a Tesla”
As you’ve heard, @AOC’s abuela is living in a dilapidated home that was ravaged by Hurricane Maria. 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 https://t.co/F1N0Jxgnxg

Over 100,000 dollars was raised by eager-to-help conservatives. AOC called for the fund to be shut down, refusing the money raised by her political rivals.
