Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to own Trump by showing the decrepit and dilapidated nature of the domicile of her grandma in Puerto Rico and demanding to know why Trump hadn’t fixed. Everyone else demanded to know why AOC didn’t help her own abuela.
Well now her auntie is chiming in, and she says AOC’s whole premise was stupid and wrong in the first place. Maybe she didn’t say it exaaaactly like that, but … I think we all know what she’s getting at.
From Daily Mail.
DailyMail.com tracked down 81-year-old Clotilde’s home to a quiet community just outside the picturesque coastal city of Arecibo – located 40 miles west from capital San Juan – on the island’s beautiful north coast.
And when we politely approached the two-story flat-roofed residence, we were met by a woman who told us emphatically after viewing AOC’s tweets: ‘I am her aunt. We don’t speak for the community.’
The relative, who refused to give her name, added: ‘We are private people, we don’t talk about our family.’ Ironically for AOC, she also refused to blame former President Donald Trump for thousands of Hurricane Maria victims being unable to get money to repair shattered homes.
However she did express sympathy for those who still need help after the 2017 disaster, which damaged 90 per cent of the island’s 1.3million dwellings and killed 2,975 people.
The area where AOC’s grandmother lives experienced some of the worst devastation on the island when the category 5 storm swept through after making landfall on September 20.
Here comes the boom.
Her aunt said: ‘In this area people need a lot of help. Many people have needed it for the past four years and haven’t had anything.’
Yet she did not pin that on Trump, adding: ‘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.’
“We had the assistance and it didn’t get to the people.”
“WE HAD THE ASSISTANCE”
Bwa ha ha haaaaaaa.
You really need to quit talking to your family, AOC. And it sounds to me like your family agrees.
