AOC’s Auntie: Absence of Aid in Puerto Rico ‘Not a Problem with Washington’

A lady who recognized herself as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) aunt, outside of the representative’s grandma’s house in Puerto Rico, declined to blame previous President Trump’s administration for the lack of help in Puerto Rico, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

According to the outlet, which tracked down the congresswoman’s 81-year-old granny’s home, a female beyond the house recognized herself as the Democrat’s auntie including, “We do not speak for the community.”

“We are personal individuals, we don’t discuss our household,” the female told the outlet, which included, “Ironically for AOC, she also refused to blame previous President Donald Trump for countless Hurricane Maria victims being not able to get cash to repair shattered houses.”

“In this area individuals need a great deal of assistance. Many individuals require it for the previous 4 years and haven’t had anything,” she stated.

“It’s a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of assistance. It is not a problem with Washington. We had the support and it didn’t get to the people,” she continued.

The outlet’s conversation with Ocasio-Cortez’s aunt follows the New york city Democrat’s controversial tweet previously this month, which contained images of her abuela’s home.

“Just over a week earlier, my abuela fell ill. I went to Puerto Rico to see her- my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in the June 2 tweet. “This is her home. Typhoon MarĂ­a relief hasn’t arrived. Trump obstructed relief $ for PR.”

“Individuals are being required to get away ancestral homes, & designers are taking them,” she added:

Some were quick to mention what others have actually described as her relatively luxurious lifestyle.

“Honey, you drive a Tesla and have 2 apartment or condos. If your grandmother is living poor that’s since you do not help her out,” Florida Republican congressional prospect Lavern Spicer remarked. “I’m surprised that a socialist wouldn’t redistribute that wealth to their granny. Sad!”:

Daily Wire columnist Matt Walsh reacted, writing, “Shameful that you live in luxury while allowing your own grandma to suffer in these squalid conditions.”

“You do not even have a principle for the role that 1st-gen, first-born children play in their families. My abuela is fine. But instead of just taking care of mine & letting others suffer, I’m calling attention to the systemic injustices you appear totally fine w/ in having a United States colony,” Ocasio-Cortez responded:

Ocasio-Cortez later included “I wish to be clear– while Trump admin had a major function, it wasn’t just them” and said her abuela is “doing fine”:
