Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, our favorite mouthpiece of the liberal-enlightened Left, has learned a new word – but we aren’t sure if she knows what it means. As one story reported, she also used that word repeatedly in one of her latest rants. This time, she is accusing President Donald Trump of scaring people from getting help and other nefarious intentions.
The freshman Congresswoman has spoken often about the issues caused by the pandemic, and as a New York Rep., she also represents (as the aforementioned story called it) “the epicenter of the United States’ Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.” No place in the Nation has been hit more violently and as hard as the New York-New Jersey region of the country.
That would also mean that few should have a better grasp of the crisis facing New York than those representing the people of New York, like AOC. Once again, however, the fiery and socialist-driven Representative has proven that she is blind to everything but her own agenda – whatever that may be.
According to our story, AOC is now accusing the President of scaring people from getting help because of what she called “Trump’s xenophobic COVID response.” And there is that new big word our freshman Rep. must have recently learned – then misused.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez took once again to Twitter as her preferred platform for Trump-bashing. As the story shared, her latest accusation said: “Corona, Queens is the most heavily COVID-impacted zip code in America. I can tell you 1st hand that many ppl are too scared to go to the hospital & continue to work bc of Trump’s xenophobic COVID response.”
But she wasn’t done as she squeezed every penny out of her new ten-cent word. The rant continued as she tweeted an answer to her own question, asking and answering:
“How is Trump’s response xenophobic?
– Targets Asian community in his rhetoric & TV ads, incl ads depicting Asian Americans as Chinese officials
– Late, little, or no translation of public health mandates into multiple languages
– Booting ITIN immigrant taxpayers from CARES relief
– Enacting the public charge rule (punishes immigrants for seeking medical attn, food assistance) despite knowing that COVID was on a trajectory to become a widespread public health crisis
– Allowing ICE to continue moving children into NYC & facilities with confirmed COVID cases”
Despite her newfound word, or at least her love of the word “xenophobic,” and her laundry list of accusations, the facts paint another picture. Those facts as our story also shared state that “President Trump banned travel to and from China in early January. Various health care officials have concluded that it helped slow the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. And where were the Democrats? Standing there saying it was racist and xenophobic to do.”
The story also reminded us that “Trump has sent the majority of ventilators, masks, gowns and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to NYC.” Not a very xenophobic move based on AOC’s assessment.
And that CARES relief act wasn’t written by the President but by house Dems. Regarding that claim of people being ‘scared’ by the President’s messages? If that were true, as our story continued “we wouldn’t see a large influx in treatments and cases in the NYC metro area.”
Yes, the New York Rep. has learned a new word, but it doesn’t mean that she has learned how to tell the truth. AOC went on another rant: Lies, lies, and more lies. It doesn’t matter how you dress a lie, it is still a lie, and there isn’t a word big enough to change the facts.
For those of us who don’t have our dictionaries handy here is the quick definition of Xenophobic: having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries. If you know the backstory or the history between AOC and President Trump, then you will appreciate the irony there.
Fortunately, and despite the lack of support from leaders like New York’s own Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, the President and his administration are fighting, helping, and stopping the coronavirus pandemic. There is light at the end of the tunnel and we are winning the fight, perhaps AOC should find a big fancy word to say that?
