Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez escalated her feud with President Trump.
But her scattershot approach to politics just came back to bite her.
That’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told this big lie about Trump that instantly blew up in her face.
Ocasio-Cortez and other gun-grabbers were delighted over the tragedy in El Paso.
Liberals saw an opportunity to put President Trump on the defensive on both guns and immigration after the shooter posted a racist manifesto online.
Ocasio-Cortez falsely accused President Trump of using rhetoric that inspired the shooter even though the shooter’s manifesto explicitly said his feelings on immigration predated Donald Trump.
Ocasio-Cortez took aim at the president during her remarks at a vigil in Brooklyn paying tribute to the shooting victims of El Paso and Dayton, Ohio.
“I’m tired of the questioning if the president is racist. He is,” Ocasio-Cortez told nearly 500 attendees, reported the New York Daily News.
The far-left “Squad” member then claimed white supremacy is a global “international terrorist problem” that must be stopped.
“There are so many different issues that are weaving themselves into a braid of violence into our country. One of them is white supremacist terrorism,” she stated, seemingly referring to the Christ Church, New Zealand gunman, who killed 51 people in two consecutive shooting attacks at mosques. 2020 White House hopefuls Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) have also attempted to tie the president to the shooting.
By taking this route Ocasio-Cortez left herself open to charges that she was ignoring her own role in inciting acts of domestic terrorism.
Recently a left-wing terrorist attacked an ICE holding facility with firebombs and used the “concentration camp” language Ocasio-Cortez deployed to describe detention facilities for illegal aliens.
No one in the media or elected office blamed Ocasio-Cortez because ultimately the blame for these acts of madness lie with the terrorist.
