I would really hate to be someone AOC claims to care about. She cried crocodile tears and blamed President Trump for her grandmother’s home in disrepair.
First, Trump did not send the hurricane to Puerto Rico, and secondly, he is not responsible for the corrupt island officials who lost millions without any explanation of where the money went or the truckloads of emergency supplies that local officials failed to distribute.
AOC tweeted out about the plight of her Abuela (granny) and her house that has been unlivable since the hurricane hit the island a couple of years ago.
The house needs a new roof and other repairs. Matt Walsh, a conservative started a GoFundMe page and raised $100,000 for AOC’s Abuela. But, the word is out that AOC refused the money. Possibly she was shamed into laying out some cash to help repair her home.
I am sure only half of the money raised would be needed for repairs and the rest would help granny improve her quality of life. But, I suppose AOC decided that accepting the money for grandma would be a reflection on her. That would be all well and good as long as she steps up and takes care of granny. If not, it will reflect on her badly but she is used to that by now.
She recently said that if we don’t build prisons people won’t commit crimes. maybe we should stop building hospitals so people don’t get sick. And cemeteries so that people don’t die.
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.

It’s pretty fascinating, really. We raised enough to change her grandmother’s life. We could have raised enough to lift her whole neighborhood out of poverty. AOC shut it down. She’d rather leave people to suffer than accept help from us. Very revealing episode.

Of course, many people wondered how a sitting congresswoman making almost $200k a year (that we know of) could let her own grandmother suffer in such squalor. Why wait for the government to help, when you can rectify a lot as a family?
Walsh took the notion a step further when he decided to challenge AOC’s ideas that only government can solve all of our problems. On Friday, the conservative commentator opened a GoFundMe account aimed at raising enough money to provide for Abuela AOC’s housing repairs and more. By Saturday, Walsh said he had been notified that the recipients have rejected the money and asked GoFundMe to halt the campaign, even as it surpassed $100k.
