AOC Makes Outlandish Claim

AOC Makes Outlandish Claim

(ReliableNews.org) – Last week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blamed New York City’s spike in crime on parents trying to shoplift bread. The city is definitely seeing an increase in acts of gun violence; however, the idea was pretty outrageous because people don’t usually shoot others while they are trying to commit petty theft. Instead of admitting she was wrong, the far-Left lawmaker doubled down.

When Republicans pushed back on her claims, the Democrat brushed it off by claiming most members of the GOP haven’t experienced poverty.

Of course, she has no idea what “most” Republicans have gone through. The Democratic lawmaker is making assumptions about millions of people, many of them who absolutely do live in poverty, in an attempt to defend criminals. The GOP just doesn’t commit acts of gun violence because they’re going through a rough spot.
