Democrat Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC) was on social media complaining about her grandmother’s home in Puerto Rico. She somehow blamed Trump for her grandmother’s misfortune when he had nothing to do with it. Instead of doing something to help her grandmother, AOC just kept blaming and complaining. The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh took action and trolled AOC for not helping her grandmother: “shameful that you live in luxury while allowing your own grandmother to suffer in these squalid conditions.”
Fast forward, and conservative Matt Walsh ended up raising $87,000 in less than 8 hours on GoFundMe.
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.

Matt Walsh: it’s “shameful that you live in luxury while allowing your own grandmother to suffer in these squalid conditions.”
In under five hours, @MattWalshBlog and 3,000 of his friends raised more than $50,000 to fix up the ancestral home of @AOC's abuela. It's almost like private communities are better at meeting individual needs than the government (or their tesla-driving granddaughters). pic.twitter.com/BbsMlFGSSz

AOC replied: “You don’t even have a concept for the role of [first generation], first-born daughters play in their families. My Abuela is okay. But instead of only caring for mine [and] letting others suffer, I’m calling attention to the systemic injustices you seem totally fine [with] in having a U.S. colony.”
She just wants to blame Trump and is ungrateful for the help she got. Pathetic.
